What is live update? Live update for what?
Live update... when someone posts something the thread updates automatically without having to reload it.. when a new hit is posted you get a notification (if selected using the mturkcrowd improv script).. maybe some other stuff too

I think it was the same for most of us big number workers. I cut my teeth on big ass batches of Taste of the World restaurant hits. It prepared me really well for batch work. I'll never forget my first $100 day... then it was $200... $300... I've made it far past that in a day a number of times, but those were entirely due to catching multiple super high paying hits in a single day. Or the occasional max out on .20+ batches.

If I can offer some advice... wean yourself off of VDX. I went through a period after Taste stopped posting where I had gotten so used to making bank on their batches I forgot how to grind out filler batches and search for shit. It was a pretty rough period and my earnings sagged significantly... had trouble motivating myself to work "scrub" hits and the lower earnings just straight up killed my productivity and attitude... try setting yourself a low "daily vdx goal"... then after you hit it spend some time doing other stuff whether they are still up or not. Sounds counter intuitive... but VDX isn't a super juicy batch and you'll do yourself a favor staying lean and hungry by maintaining the attitude that you can take them or leave them.
VDX is love. VDX is life.

For the forum :) With live update, anytime a new post is..posted, it just pops up at the bottom. (hint: you can also have it beep when a HIT is posted!)

That's handy. How much does it cost?

It's been a while since I worked on Visual Genomes. Did they up their photos and decrease the pay?

I wish I could watch you work for like 5 minutes. I know there is so much I can do to step up my game, but I havent found the way. You motivate a lot of people who want to get to that level....so yeah.
Thanks man. I know some people have seen my posts as bragging recently.
But I want to show people that even as a semi-noob who can't write scripts you can still make a living wage off the turk game. :pompus:

VDX is love. VDX is life.
VDX is hell. Hell with money.
Maybe if you'd give me whatever secret batch you're working on right now, I wouldn't need them. :ROFL: <3
