    I'm posting this on behalf of a requester i'm currently working for. There's a small team of people including myself working on some private HITs but as there's literally thousands upon thousands still to get through we're looking for 3 more people to join in and help!

    I've been working on this for around 2 weeks now, completed around 2,500 hits with 2,500 approvals and 0 rejections. The requester, Marco, is a good guy, easy going and communicative. His TO is perfect too. The work is good solid $5-6 an hour fare, the main bonus is there's a lot of it so you'll get the chance to earn some money over the next week or 2.

    You will need good English skills, as the task involves reading short news articles and answering a few questions on each one. High accuracy is important. If you're interested in giving it a go then just send me a PM or reply here and I'll let you know how to proceed!

    I would be interested if his qual test is shorter.. last time I was going to work for him the qual test was 100 questions and the first question took me 8 minutes to figure out.. I can say he is very easy to communicate with though.. just do not want to take a 100 question qual test

    For me the HITs take roughly 30 seconds each. Obviously you will need to take time to get used to the format which is the same for any HIT.

    You're still paid 0.05 per hit for the qualification ones.. Once you've done a few and got used to them you will be getting through them in 30-45 seconds which is $5-6 an hour anyway..

    I don't understand, he made qualification hits for you that paid 0.00? I can tell you thats not the case now, they're valued 0.05 each and that's the base amount you can get.

    $5 easy, $6 if you're fast.

    It's not spectacular but it's steady and there's tons of hits.

    The wall of text in them makes them look more complicated than they are but when you sit down and do them, 90% of the time you're just quickly reading the article, writing down the company name then ticking 4 boxes which is usually "no" 4 times over.

    Ah okay... they look a bit long and tedious. Thanks for the info.

    hahaha
    Just wondering what I said that needed to be edited? Hmmm offering to help someone "if" they didn't find the info on here and stressing "if" a few times. Gee feels like I am on TN all over again... being used for information as long as I agree with the admin but being edited if I don't. Yet another turker forum is advertised on here plain as day. OMG TFF! I'll bet my PM's are being edited too when peeps are complaining to me that they aren't getting the information they ASK FOR.

    I can recommend Marco very warmly. He is a really good requester and his work is worth doing well!

    Heck, I took a 400 question test from E-Harmony and was rejected.

    I emailed him and no response yet. As long as it doesnt hurt my brain too much Ill give it a try. Didnt know I could just go here. https://www.mturk.com/mturk/searchbar?selectedSearchType=hitgroups&requesterId=A2P40XGDF3BF6B

    Why is there 2 differnt SHORT articles and one is 5 cents and the other is 7 cents? 7 cents short but harder I take it?
    Right now I got "Your request for the Qualification "ASA evaluation" has been submitted to Requester Marco Clemente.". Most the time knowone ever excepts the qualification for me and not sure why. So kinda doubting this now.
