    I saw a requester that considered 7.4 Million accepted HITs to be master qualified! Crazy! Guess it depends on the requester. Thanks for the input BloodRayen. Nice GIF!

    no, this number is totally wrong and the giveaway doesn`t depend on a requester. it is safer to assume that amazon rolls a dice for the qual

    are you talking on transferring earnings as a non-US turker? if so the amount will be credited to your amazon.com gift card balance.
    if you buy a gift card on amazon you can choose between electronic and mail delivery

    I have been working on mturk for a little over a year but am a newbie to this site. I have recently started experiencing a technical issue on mturk that I could use some help with. Sometimes after I fill out a survey or study page and click the next or continue button, instead of accepting my information and advancing to the next page, my information gets deleted and I have to fill out the same page again. This seems to happen more often the more time I spend on a page. This can be especially frustrating on pages where I have to do a lot of typing. I can't seem to figure out what's causing this. Has anybody else come across this problem? I appreciate any advice or suggestions. Thank you!

    It seems like there has been very little work since Christmas. Is this normal for a holiday weekend?

    Brand Spanking new to Mturk. Haven't done anything yet, but am planning to immediately take all the qualifications I can for transcription work. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how feasible it would be to make $30 a day if I focused primarily on higher paying transcription HITS? (I ask because I am hoping to stay home within the next 6 months or so and thought if I went ahead and started now I could build some skills and momentum). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm also trying to figure out how to accept hits. They say that I am qualified, but I don't see a way to accept them? Does that mean they are already gone?

    HELP! Crowdsurf!

    I have been doing crowdsurf hits for the last couple of days without issue. I have been getting them approved along with my bonuses. Today, after doing 29 of them, I'm suddenly NOT qualified to do anymore. What the heck? I'm confused.

    Any ideas? I'm still really new to this and am trying to find my way around. I have done a total of 1,255 hits. Probably 100 to 150 of those are Crowdsurf, but I am not 100% sure of that.

    Thanks friends!

    Hi everyone, I'm a new turker and I have, for the second time now, did an entire survey, went back to enter in my completion code and accidentally hit the stinking 'return hit' button instead of submit after pasting my code into the box. GRRR, am I just out of luck on those? I don't see any way to see what my returned hits are so I can contact the requester or anything.......

    I think we all have done stuff like this. I open all hits in a seperate window. If it's a survey accessed on a seperate site then I open that in a new tab. That way they are both next to each other. If for some reason I time out or accidentally hit the return instead of submit then I can go back to my main page where the hit is still showing (where I opened it from). The few times I've hit the wrong button and contacted the requestor either I've been ignored or the requestor never followed up with me. I've done one too many "free" surveys for requestors. It's annoying but if you don't hear anything back from them then move on. You will make it up with other hits and bonuses.

    chances are you made to many mistakes and they pulled your qualification. you should contact them and ask what happened

    Thanks for replying! Also, I've requested quite a few qualifications, I don't know how to tell if they are approved or not, it's been a few days and I don't see any new sort of hits popping up or anything, just the usual...

    You are welcome. I just asked the question about qualifications in a seperate post (you may want to see what BloodRayen's response was.) I've only gotten a few of them in the past but if my memory serves me you will get an email when a qualification has been granted. Also, you will be able to do the hit if you come across it.

    in most cases yes, but not all granted quals will trigger an e-mail (similar to blocks).
    if you want to see if your qualification quntity changes you could work with the qualification wrapper script
