    Scraper's insanely easy. You just mouseover the fields/options and it tells you exactly what they do.

    As for what it does, it's a more efficient search than the standard and pulls all relevant results onto a single page. Plus you can block requesters you don't want to see.

    Thanks. I don't mind working like that at least after all that time you know you're getting something decent. You can be on turk for 3 hrs and get diddily squat. (however you spell that expression)

    I am not sure if it has been asked before. Have you ever had a dream/nightmare involving mturk. I know I have.

    Some years ago, when I first started this form of insanity, I would regularly dream of marking bubbles. I'd wake and realize I'd been more than half asleep and seeing bubbles. Marking bubbles, but never finishing. Over and over and over......It got to the point that I'd simply get up, turn on the computer and do HITS. If I couldn't sleep, it's better to make something off those bubbles...OOOOOOO...OO.O.O.O.OOO....OOOOOO...OOOOOO..O.O.O.O...O.O.O....OOOO.O.O.O.O.O.O....OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO....O.O.O.O.....OOOOOOOOO......OOO.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O..............

    Probably around half the dreams I can remember are doing monotonous mturk-like work, and the other half are other nightmares. Can't remember the last time I had a non-shitty dream, actually. Oh! Except that one with you, me, and Arby.

    Survey question idea... and for any Masters reading this.... How many rejections did you have when you were granted Masters? 0-5, 5-10, 10-50, 50-100, 100-200?

    I have 15k HITs, and 11 rejections... but just went up to 15 rejections. No Masters for me yet, but I've only turked for 3 months since I started turking 2 years ago.

    Over 200k approved before receiving masters with over 650 rejections. Mass rejection tragedy back at only 20kish approved, years ago.

    I think the more important question to ask is how many years/months ago did they get Masters. Apparently Amazon got stingier about handing it out lately based on what people have posted in other threads. But others could probably speak to that more here.

    Dec. 9 2011, which I think was the second time Masters was given out since it was introduced that year. Started turking in July 2010.

    It took me 9 years to get Masters, but that's probably on the high end :p
