Hey there, I’m new to mturk and I recently completed the Foxtrot English Expert 12 question test. I figured it did pretty well because I was able to answer the question easily. But I received an email that says:

“You are receiving this email because a requester has granted you the following qualification:

Qualification: Foxtrot English Expert
Requester: Foxtrot
Qualification Value: 0”

I am able to retake the test but anyone have pointers for passing? What does the value 0 mean? I really thought I had at least 10/12 correct.

Any information would be extremely helpful. @mentor

Thanks!

My ex (I think that's correct?) stepdad was really good friends with the two girls that ended up in the killing fields, Brooke Bracewell and Georgia Greer. The night they went missing he was the last to see them both together and alive. They were at a gas station grabbing beer and a dude in a van rolled up and asked them if they wanted to party. My stepdad and the other dude declined but the girls went with the guy.

The one cool story from that guy.
I was raised in Georgia and my last name is Greer.. Just thought I would share

35 rejections and a dozen pending from Johanngate. Before his batch, I had a total of 45 rejections out of 290,000 total in my turking career.
I have 32 rejections and some still pending . I am sooo annoyed.. even more annoyed that not may people reviewed on TV. you figure they would before they run out of time to.. At least to hold their spot to do a clear review later.. I always start a review for new requesters just in case

I meant to ask this earlier. Does the @mentor tag still work? Or was it @mentors? @Staff?

I looked up that case after you posted about it because I remembered some of the details, and watched a documentary about the case. Not sure if what I saw online is correct (some looked sketchy) but they were spelling the last name of Georgia "Geer"

Edit: I forgot my point, lol. Just wanted to let Kristina M Greer @Kristina M Greer know that she may not have a connection with the victim. So maybe the only bad news for her today is the rejections which I am sure will be reversed!

Fine, I'll sell it to Tugboat @C to the J

That's like a slow afternoon for him.
I limit my vinyl spending at like $30 max per record.
I mean unless of course I came across like a Beatles butcher cover for $300 or something fucking crazy like that.

This is most valuable one I own. :ROFL:

Was able to finally get a first pressing of The Wall for $20 couple weeks ago though. :thumbsup:

You would go nuts in my house we have boxes of old vinyl. Tons of Beatles, Styxs, Queen, Johnny Winter III, Cars, and the list goes on and on.

Slumber Party Massacre is probably worth less on record tbh. Though I probably saw it on VHS. I have one of the 1st releases of DsotM on Vinyl, but it doesn't have the original posters.
