    Very late in responding but I use my ipad for turking. I had two great iMacs that were ruined after Hurricane Sandy. Still waiting on insurance.

    The ipad works most of the time. But I can't do hits with flash and I often have problems copying codes.

    Usually just clicking on the HIT title in bold prompts you with a popup box to unblock the requester. So as long as you can find a hit from the blocked requester, it should be easy to spot and click.

    Ugh, it looks like zing upped their qualifications, I love doing their "are these receipts the same" hits, they're so quick and easy and they pay immediately. I hope tomorrow's better, I didn't even make it to ten dollars today.

    This was posted earlier and already approved. Lots of writing, but no beef from me.

    Nothing to be sorry about. Lots of people can miss good HITs in a giant thread like this. No harm done.

    I would rather get to many posts than none.

    I was just able to snag a few Crowdsource Sentiment (NOT CROWDFLOWER!) hits...I don't know if it's a fluke or if they're going to put some more up, but keep your eye out just in case.

    On my game I was stuck for the entire 5 minutes, so I just used that time to write my review. Pretty easy!

    They've been putting up a handful at a time for the past couple of days, they're great when you can snag them.

    These are quick and mindless. Do be aware that the subjects are all male. Very few instances of nudity but tons of guys showing off their chests and standing around in their underwear.

    edit: They've also just stopped me from doing any more due to "low accuracy" after missing a total of three test questions - two where the guy's dick was visible and I tagged as such, but they said I shouldn't have, and one where what looked like a shadow on a black and white image was, according to them, pubic hair.

    I've had a lot of hits unrejected. I tell them a sob story and let them know I will do anything to have it removed and let them know how 1 rejection takes away a lot of valuable work for you by lowering your percentages and is preventing you from working on higher paying hits which takes food off of your table. It usually works.

    In my circumstance it's true though... just be honest about your situation.
