    Oh, don't be sorry. Nothing to do with you. It sounded like a good one, though.

    Really? Now I just feel plain stupid...usually I'm pretty confident in my google skills, but I am barely ever able to break 3 min on them. Even at that I am just never able to get flowing so I take too many 'breaks' and end up averaging about $3-4/hour. I guess that's the burn out thing...

    it helps to pick a few colleges to work with, i usually have ten going at once, and leave the schedules open. also, split screen, left side mturk, right side ten tabs worth of colleges, plus a tab for googling emails... lately with these smaller schools i've also been keeping staff directories open in tabs on the left side so i don't have to keep reopening them...

    then if i get to a point where i 'skip' ten times and a school i'm working on doesn't pop up again, i minimize the set of tabs i was working on so i can jump back later if i pick up a few stragglers, and then start fresh with another ten schools...

    This has been my problem today. That and a couple of schools I got stubborn with in regards to finding emails. I don't understand how some of these schools make it so hard to contact people that work there.

    But then again, ever since I've started doing these HITs, I've had several "I don't understand how some of these schools manage to not do ______" statements.

    there's also a bunch of schools that are just broken... rowan, west valley, a few others... their shit's just down... maybe they're doing maintenance over the break, would be nice to have a message about it though...

    I got one that was down. I went to their facebook page and they had an announcement posted there so I just copy/pasted that in the HIT.

    I like these hits, though sometimes the keywords make no sense.

    That happens when you miss three captchas in a row. It happens to everyone from time to time. Especially in the middle of a batch of Two Lakes or Jaime Arguello.

    I've done several from Rowan with little issue aside from hard to find emails, what's been down?

    That's what I've been using. It's slow, but it's always loaded, even just now. Maybe people skipping is why I managed to do so many...
