    "Adjectives and Attribute Matching"

    Why is it just instructions and a submit button? Does the requester want us to just read the instructions and then submit the HIT? o_O

    I had a hit earlier today that was just the submit button. No instructions, no info, just free money. They paid almost immediately, too.

    It was a study on how many turkers dare to click the submit button without doing any work.

    I had a weird one yesterday. Title was like 'quick 1 minute question' - I accepted it, read the statement, examined the 4 pictures, looked to give my response and didn't see a place to do it. I clicked the "next" button expecting a question or input box for the answer. That page was sex and age demographics and submit. I immediately contacted the requester to tell him I didn't see a place for my response to his question and I would be happy to tell him my response if he wanted it. He never replied back and it was approved so I'm guessing he knew he messed up on setting up the HIT and decided not to count it against me or others that the response blank was missing.

    About $3 - not bad for a day when Mturk has been dead unless you want to be a little risky about doing a HIT for approval. :pleco:

    I only did about 7.37 it was basically dead the whole time I was around. Not to worry though I used my amazon gift card balance to get some paints to play with to occupy myself during slow times.

    There's a lot of reviews on TO claiming this requester hacked their phone after downloading their app.

    I don't remember. Not much. Maybe 0.20. But free money is free money.

    I don't know if I've ever done theirs, I know I've done similar ones before.

    I hate sounding newbish, but what does PE mean? I'm usually pretty good at figuring out what initials stand for. Is it projected earnings?

    Whew. I am glad I do my work from a desktop, and not a phone. My eyesight is bad, and I have a low tolerance for phones. I've got my computer hooked up to my 60" tv. It just makes this so much easier.

    It doesn't matter whether you work from a desktop or a phone because the HIT itself requires you to have a phone in order to do their HIT.

    Wow. I was feeling sorry for myself, because I only made a little over $10.00 today. Now, I don't feel as bad.

    I'm lying. I still feel bad.
