    What is this?

    I am Tjbot! I'm a solution devised by the genious mods to prevent there ever being a day that hit threads aren't posted! The whole point of my existence is to post a hit thread if one doesn't exist by 12:08am PST. If you see this post, assume that this one is the main post. One of the mod team will clean up existing posts and consolidate once they wake up and get online. As my name indicates, I am a bot. I don't post, nor do I respond to PM's. If you have any problems, send an email to tjbot@ns4t.net or PM Tjololo, he can help out with any issues.
    Want to make tomorrow's thread? Just go for it!

    It rained most of the weekend so I didn't do much outside. I played tennis last weekend which was nice. Been awhile. Mostly did errands and chores. Hope you had a relaxing one.

    Who do you play tennis with? I haven't played tennis in forever and I'm not very good, but it sure is fun chasing that ball around the court :)

    I'd like to talk about a rejection i received over the weekend which i found extremely frustrating and absolutely unfair. essentially what happened was i spent 13 minutes on a hit; as usual i answered diligently. (i have a 99% approval rating over six years on m-turk; i take this seriously.), the hit was called "Answer questions about thoughts on messages", and the requester was Anli Xiao. Incredibly, after i completed all the questions, instead of getting a completion code, i got the message "you do not qualify for this hit," or words to that effect. this has never happened to me before; to do a hit and then to be told i'm not qualified? i was stunned. i immediately contacted the requester who blamed it on a "glitch." am i being paranoid in thinking that the "glitch" was the fault of him; or his staff? as i said, this hasn't happened to me before. seems pretty convenient to blame it on a "glitch." so what he suggested was that i send in a screen shot of the final page, as well as provide by Turk ID. well, obviously i couldn't send him a screen shot; i had already submitted the hit (without a code since i didn't get one; and i wanted my pay which i deserved). i did provide the ID. within hours i saw i had received a rejection. what really bothers me is that he has my data, he has my ID, he can use the data even though i have the rejection. in other cases like this, i will receive an apology/a dummy hit will be created/a bonus will be rewarded. it seems clear that accidents do happen and i assume when a requester has a technical issue, he/she will take down the hit after rewarding the workers who made the ATTEMPT at doing the hit. in this case not only was i not rewarded, but i'm stuck with a rejection. i contacted the requester two more times expressing my frustration; i never heard from him again and the rejection was not reversed.
    I just wanted to share this experience. in hindsight, i could have avoided the rejection by not submitting the hit since i had no code. but i figured; i had done the work, i wrote "no code provided," as i always do when i submit a hit where no code is provided. very very frustrating

    My neighbor. Been long time too. I'm finding out that the newer rackets are so much lighter than my old one. I really prefer badminton. It's so much easier and less chasing!

    That sucks! Hopefully since it is Monday he will get back to you and reverse that rejection.

    My neighbor was talking about pickle ball (which I've never heard of before) seems they converted some of the local tennis courts into pickle ball courts. I'll have to give that a try this summer...I'm not very quick on my feet though, so I'll probably just spend a lot of time trying to protect my face.

    Never heard of it either! I had to Google to find out what it was. That's so interesting. Looks like they use a plastic ball? I wouldn't mind trying that.

    I've had few where it would give me that message at the end. I've messaged them while holding onto the HIT and have gotten a reply that "it's an error, please ignore that and submit the HIT". Looks like he'll try to make up for it based on his replies.
