    They can. Usually means you've reached the max number of HITs that they want you to do and want different workers to do them. Other times, it may mean you've already done it.

    Hi, I this is my first forum post, so I may be posting in the wrong spot. I have been doing mturk work since the end of June (I've made nearly $700 on 7000 plus HITS with a 99.6% approval rating). Last week week was great and I averaged over $30 a day, but for the past few days, I can't seem to find anything non-master qualified to do. Does this happen often? I thought things were going great after my 5000th approved HIT, but now I feel like I am standing still.

    :welcome: Hi!

    That's normal. There'll be times when it's really slow and bad then it picks up then slow again. Mturk work isn't consistent. Just when you think it's an awful day can turn around in an instant with a good batch or few surveys.

    Hello Turkers!
    I am relatively new to Mturk. I especially like these image categorization tasks, and the tasks where I need to extract information out of receipt, e.g.
    Often, these tasks use a golden standard or known answer for quality review. I wanted to ask you guys if you have hint on how I can identify the "golden standard" images? Are these images generally the easiest ones? Do you have any idea or hint on this? I appreciate your comments very much! Thank you!

    :welcome: to the forum!

    I don't do them so I wouldn't know but maybe someone does in the other daily thread where most of us are. Feel free to join us there and ask around. :)

    Hello, i browsed and didn't see an answer. I'm on day 7 of working on mturk, and i've installed panda and been playing with it. But what I can't figure out is how to add a new person that i want it to search for me and pull hits? I click Add and it wants a link or something, help please! :) Below enter the preview or the previewandaccept url.
    You may enter just the groupID number too or a NS4T.net url

    :welcome:

    So you installed Panda Crazy and want to add pandas to it...

    First what are you using to find HITs? There are other tools to find HITs with, HIT Forker or Mturk Suite which has HIT Finder in it. With those tools, you can easily click on the panda URL to copy the link then paste it into that box. That's how to add pandas there.

    Feel free to join us at the Great HITs thread where we hang out, chat and share HITs. We may be able to help you more there.

    If you find a HIT you want to panda, you can right-click on the "Accept & Work" then choose drop down, "copy link address". Paste that panda URL in that box you mentioned above.

    So what are you guys' average times on transferring mturk earnings to your amazon payouts account? I remember it used to take like a minute now it seems to take hours.

    What time is the cut-off for transfers to the payments account and the withdraws from the payments account? Like, can I do one of both at 11:59 and then theoretically again 12:01?

    No idea. Probably. You probably can find someone who knows or has tried it in the daily thread.
