Last week Thursday, 26.9.2021, I was trying to test 19 participants simultaneously on 3 different tasks. However, when everybody started opening the experiments, that is a part of the group task 1, another part of the group task 2 and the last part task 3, the participants got error messages when trying to start the experiments. At this point I was also unable to log-in to my experimenter account on pavlovia.
After waiting for a bit and people starting the tasks one by one everything went back to normal and the tasks worked as they should.
My question is whether this is a problem that I have to anticipate for in the future when doing the same procedure with a group of 20 again.
I found this post from January 2020 where Jon says that he never experiences such problems when running workshops. So I’m not sure what to make of it for the future.
