There always seems to be a bug in the soft banning, that's why I quit doing the tracings forever ago.
When the tracing ones showed up last time, I wasn't even planning on trying them. Then I saw a lot of people saying they were soft banned and I wanted to see how many I could do before getting soft banned myself... I never did, so I kept doing them to fill in the gaps between other HITs.

I didn't try to email. and I got soft-banned after 6 on the last batch. :shrug:
Who knows. I had done about 1500 of the is this item in the picture without any issues, so I had kinda hoped to be able to do more. Hourly actually wasn't bad on them.

Can't believe I actually got above $50 including $10.10 worth of bonuses today, it started out very slow. Alexandria saved me today.

Regarding the Tweet Sensitiveness Analysis HIT, where are the survey codes that it asks us to provide under each answer? If I can't figure this out in the next 40 minutes, I'm going to have to return it. The requester's name is kenanfa. I've contacted them, but I doubt they'll be able to reply in time.

So thanks CVT for the qual. Now I'm conflicted.

Not that I've done them, but I took a quick look and the hit says it wants a reasoning behind why you felt that way. I would think they mislabeled the boxes under each set of bubbles and that is where the explanation goes.

Oh, ok. I didn't notice that, until you said it. Thank you.

I'm thinking I'll try it tomorrow when I'm a bit more coherent, here's to hoping they toss it to you.

i had a dialogue with him before after i got soft banned last time, so i replied to that. but i did deserve the soft ban, in my case, and he told me why. i misread an attention check and submitted another one missing a letter. told him i'd slow down and thanks for his consideration. it's money down the drain if i dont get the qual and that sucks. im not doing mturk as much now, honestly i may only do batches at this point since i have two other jobs now. very rarely will i be set up only trying to catch surveys and stuff, maybe a couple hours a week (my other jobs are combined about 50 hours). so i just want something good paying to do, so does everyone of course. think i'm just going to have a computer checking for high paying surveys and good batches going while i do my other computer work on my main workstation, and that'll be it.

Heard anything about him? He had that last batch that was all higher paying and easier, then that closed off one. Since then I haven't heard him mentioned.

he needs to use the algorithm or a qual, not both. do a qual hit or something. review work periodically. they are spending so much money on these, wtf can't they get it together
The whole thing smells fishy to me. Spending money to figure out the best way to cheap out on work...

I haven't. Assuming they are compiling the data for some kind of publication, or using it to train a neural network. If they are using it to train they will probably go through a test phase to see how much all the data has helped the NN come up with realistic answers, and then they'll be another data phase where we'll rate new output from the NN. that's how that kind of research usually goes. obviously it's not too great at it yet so hopefully that means there's a lot of work for us still left

noah/noah turk/computer vision turk has, for at least as long as i've been turking (5 months) been consistently a decent to good payer. definitely in the upper ranges for batch work. them starting to cheap out would be a heel turn. they don't pay amazing like rowan did but dropping thousands of hits that pay 10-20/hr is very very good for mturk. there are some problems with their algorithm and now that they are qual restricting that will become a big problem really fast for them, so i suspect they will need to fix their process or open it back up. if they reduced the pool of possible workers from, say, 2000 to 200, and half of them are already banned, it's gonna be a big issue.

You're likely right. I'm not trying to be super salty or hate-y; I made a lot of money this week off of CVT. I'm honestly not super salty about not getting the qual, but the whole thing seems a bit weird to me still.

i mean these are my top 10 requesters

Rowan Zellers 1293 $406.42
Noah 431 $158.65
Foxtrot 741 $149.77
UKP Lab 274 $115.08
Computer Vision Turk 418 $94.56
Noah Turk 92 $71.40
Webis 523 $70.61
Victoria Reznyk 1337 $70.41
Stefan Larson 351 $57.75
UserBob 31 $49.71

noah, computer vision turk, and noah turk are all the same company or lab or whatever. i've been softbanned from a lot of their stuff and still made a good amount of money compared to other requesters. they are a good requester and i hope they figure out whatever they need to figure out. and then let me back in lol. i like the text stuff better, or maybe i'm just better at it but those 12 cent hits are great money
