I have only 6 hits but a 66% approval rating. What is the best way to fix this?

I only 6 hits but a 66% approval rating. Can I have my account reset to give me a better start?

There are no mulligans, there are plenty of hits to do that do not require 95%. Just have to suck it up and do them. You can even do the 0 cent demographic hits Turk has that will be approved. It will only take a few since you have such limited amount of hits.

Thanks. I have seen references to scripts to help find good HITs, which one would you suggest and what browser is the best to use?

I use Chrome for my default browser. I am one of the strange ones and I don't use any of programs most people on this forum use like Panda, hit finder and others.

my personal experience with early stages of your turk account, do the $0.01 HITs from approvers with 99% approval rates so you can inflate your approvals and be eligible for better paying work.

I have only a few hits myself. I agree with miko. Do the lower paying HITs to help get your numbers up. That lowers the rejection percentage and helps "reset" your score. (I have been doing a lot of surveys myself just to get used to the MTurk platform.)

Also, check out the forum thread "MTurk Guide: Getting started on Mechanical Turk" put together by TSolo315. This is a great guide for beginners and will help you find scripts for finding better HITs. I installed the MTurk Suite which includes Turkerview. This gives me a much more detailed review of each requester before I accept the HIT. I don't waste my time on requesters who set up links that don't work or can't give me a survey code at the end of the survey. (Not cool.) I use Google Chrome as my browser.

Just submit with your workerid or the end survey message on ones without codes. Will approve 99% of the time.
