This link is a great resource to get started!Hello there, how can I make money with Mturks?
it's a shadow of its former self. a few people would regularly make 100 a day (well, those who were 'good at it'). Average turkers could pretty readily make 30-50 dollars a day.Thanks for the response, Jan.
I'm curious if you could shed a bit more light into the "mturk has really slowed in the last few years" side of things for me.
No, it's perfectly fine. When you return a HIT or let it expire it just goes back into the pool so someone else can accept it. It's not something you really need to worry about.Hello, I'm new to mturk and I just had a question and it might sound silly. Is it bad if I return a HIT that I already started? Will it be similar to a rejection? I am a bit worried.
Your only option is to email the requester and ask them to reverse the rejections. Amazon doesn't get involved on the workers behalf so they won't be able to do anything. My best advice is grind your approval back above 95 and be very careful who you do work for in the future. This requester has a 67% approval rating which is a huge red flag.I did 3799 hits of requester JANINE CHEN he rejected my all work without quality check.
f**king Spammer requester. my approval rate reduced from 97.55 to 94.6. why mturk does not help in these conditions
can anyone help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are always going to have some sort of consent form or privacy agreement when you take surveys, that doesn't make them a bad hit. You should only use that option if the survey asks for personal info like your SSN, real name etc. Returning hits does not hurt your account.Hello! I clicked on a survey, filled out a couple of basic demographic things (no bank account, SS#, etc.), and then a page came up with a privacy agreement. Of course the only option was to agree; I wasn't comfortable with that, so I closed that window, clicked "bad HIT" and then the reason that was the closest was "privacy violation". I wish that I knew about this kind of thing prior to accepting a HIT. I'm assuming that it would be most prudent to avoid surveys altogether, for a newbie such as myself? Also concerned that my rating will go down, as I only have 4 HITs completed to date. Advice?
Thank you- noted; just being overly cautious.You are always going to have some sort of consent form or privacy agreement when you take surveys, that doesn't make them a bad hit.
