Guess there's still work for those with the right quals, still see posts on reddit of people earning close to 100 and over a day.

Yeah closed quals were helping a ton. Just lost one from MLDataLabeler and it's been a ghost town for me after that. Doesn't help that I got hit with CR #2 either lol

there's a lotta BS floating around there too...I take those posts with a 50 lb bag of salt. Yeah, most of us can still hit $100/day once in awhile, but 5 days a week? Day in day out over 3 months? Show me proof

like masters lol or other closed quals that requesters do not post anymore
masters isn't the gravy train you think. I've had it 8 or 9 years and it hasn't made that much of a difference. Closed quals hits still pop up, but not as frequently as before. I think a lot of requestors have gone to their own platforms due to the fees by mturk, or had us train their AI to do the batch hits. There used to be a ton of tweet categorization hits, now hardly any.

i dont think its the gravy train. but i do think a bunch of requesters use it because they think it means their workers are quality. At least from my discussions with requesters who require masters. Why i say masters, is that there are a bunch of masters studies i see posted where you only have to work like 5 minutes for 10$ or more. Not all masters hits are like this but there are enough that are. Heck i even had one requester tell me they would remove their masters qual on their hit after discussing the qual with them

its such a stupid qual

I agree, it is a stupid qual. But it is the default for new requestors who don't know enough to put in quals like 99^ approval, etc. And Amazon charges more for the masters qual. Several requestors have removed the masters qual after protests.

Am I glad I have it? yes. It's one more (basically) closed qual. But my earnings didn't double or triple once I got it. Out of the $23 bux so far today,$4 or so have been from masters hits
