    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.

    Feel free to join us in the daily HITs thread where most of us hang out, share HITs and chat.

    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.

    Which one is faster? Forker or mturk suite for seeing the hits as soon as possible.

    Hi! :welcome:

    I think they both are the same. It's just matter of preference. You can change the time it refreshes to be faster if you want. Just have to be careful not to get too many PREs. (Page Request Errors)

    It depends on your computer too. Mine isn't too great so I have mine set on 3000 ms on the Finder. This gives me no PREs and works with my pandas without issues. Just play around with the numbers and see what works for you. That's what I had to do.

    Hi everyone,

    I used to alot of turking in the past. Used to be able to see the TO feedback from within MTurk. I don't see any MTurk extensions for Chrome, I think that may have been how I was seeing it. Don't remember for sure. Any info you can provide is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Mturk suite shows the reviews from multiple websites but it is not reliable at all. No one really leaves them anymore.

    Are you using the Turkopticon script? It should work for the new Mturk.

    Are you able to get into PMs now?

    Hi! I'm new to this and still getting familar with everything. I'm having an issue where I accepted three different hits from the same requesters, but each of the hits had errors so I returned them each time. I then noticed on my dashboard that I had three rejections from this requesters for these hits although I never submitted the tasks and had originally returned them. What should I do?

    Hi. :welcome: to the forum!

    It's not possible to get a rejection unless they were submitted. Perhaps you submitted instead of returning them by accident? In any case, since you got rejected, contact the requester and explain what happened. See what they say and hope for the best.

    Thank you so much Flora! I will reach out to the requester. One of the issues was that you couldn't submit the work. The submit button was not activating although the necessary data was there. It seemed like a webpage issue. Thanks again!!:)
