    Please Skip or Return This HIT, and come back after an hour to see if you can proceed at that moment.

    HIT exported from Mturk Suite v2.6.8

    yesEDIT:
    Yaay, goat learned how to export a hit. But failed the message heheh

    This hit took me 17 minutes (not including the qual test which was like 5 minutes)

    Some of the questions were iffy (only got 8/12) but there was a bonus for completing faster and for answering 6 or better. 4.50 base and I think I got 5.75 with the bonus or something close to that.

    If you know SQL its a fun and easy hit

    Boo:nu:


    ALSO let me take this moment to sincerely thank the contributor of all of the Chrono Trigger emojis to this board. Absolutely love them

    Just pick one ( I go with the second) and it will play the video you need to rate like normal afterwards. There are a bunch of different surgeries so you'll have to do it for each one.

    No. And I never have been before... I'm still getting the message.

    But it's okay, 10,000 MERLAMT video descriptions just reloaded. So apparently, now I'll be up for a few more hours making $100-$200 by describing people in India doing random things in their apartments.

    Huh, that was weird, i just got the same message to come back after an hour, blah blah blah after completing 37 - and yes, signed into FB

    Edit: But honestly, I'm kinda glad because i always feel compelled to keep going until a batch is gone, and I am tired and ready for bed anyway, LOL, so all is good!

    During that last 276 batch, that happened to me too. It usually happens when I go between two machines (laptop, phone, etc) on the same HIT with Adsforce (I also have video driver crashes sometimes with them, had to reinstall my video driver). I was able to get back in last time, get 3 total hours of Adsforce, maybe you can too. I set a timer. About half the time it doesn't let me back into the batch.

    During that batch, I got 116 in, before I switched to another laptop. Not sure why that would make a difference though

    re: Adsforce

    Unlike any other requester I've worked with in 4 years on Mturk... this is the first time I've tracked Mac or IP address change, tipping an Mturk requester's batch, to halt my access to them. It took this pattern happening 6+ times over a year, to catch the pattern.

    I've written them about it, no response. Your mileage may vary, and feel free to share what you find for a fix. I wait it out for an hour, and stick to one computer only.

    These MERLAMT look interesting...
