    OMG, I am so sorry to hear all of this. I can't imagine going through all of that, and refuse to allow my children to do so.

    I believe that if he really wants to get better, there are ways that I can be there for him and help him and maybe even have our family, but that is going to have to be up to him. At this point, my main priority is my kids and making sure that they are secure and safe and don't have to go without basic necessities. I know he has to save himself and am going to do what I have to to protect us first (physically and legally) and then help him after, if he even wants help. If not, at least I will know that we are okay and that I did everything I believed that I could do. I have already gone above and beyond what anyone else in my position would do, so I am satisfied with what I did do. But after this last arrest, and all of last night's admissions, I believe he is where he needs to be right now and it's the safest place for him and his family and our remaining property.

    I figured they'd gone bankrupt from all the 12 year olds that sign up and then never pay.

    I got a CD from them once when I was about this age. I was big into ordering free stuff online and getting in come in the mail. this wasn't free though I think it went to collections. I didn't think they would send the CD first before I paid anything :rolleyes:

    My entire CD collection when I was 12 came from them. They used to send you 12 CDs plus you could pick 4 more if you "promised" to buy more in the future. So with every name I made up I got 16 CDs. Then my parents caught me and that was the end of that.

    I remember mine going to collections too. My Memere was telling them on the phone that they were idiots for sending out CDs to a 13 year old. I had TONS of CDs from Columbia House and BMG as well as books from ALL the book clubs. lol

    Does anyone know if the timer on a HIT can be extended while it's assigned to a worker?

    First time a survey had me check acknowledgment that they lied about the possible bonus. I guess they have got angry emails before, and now they can say we agreed to doing a 12 minute task for .30. should have got at least $2.50.

    Poor James is still looking for someone to write code for him. I guess the pay is crap.

    Thanks, I have a job I'm not going to finish in time. Hopefully the requester is willing to negotiate.

    Submit the hit via MTurk and finish working on the task. You can email/msg the completion code to the req after you finish.

    If you need more time with transcription, send what you have and let them know you'll send the rest in X amount of time.

    Never had a problem doing either

    Regarding CopyText, does it usually take the full AA to pay? Did a few more than a week ago to test the waters, and still pending.
