    Ok, so I know I said last time was the last time I'd post, but I'm doing it one more time. For those who haven't heard, my requester account was suspended. Long story short, it was a misunderstanding about my role with a requester who had been suspended already, and after discussing with some Amazon employees we're back in business! All those who previously requested my qual are good, but for those who didn't, I plan to post the first hit Tomorrow Afternoon at some point. Those with my qual will get a little advance warning email, so make sure you get the qual if you haven't already, you can't do my hit without it.


    More info about the qual (including the password) and the HIT are below. Be sure to open spoiler tags to get the password.

    Happy Halloween everyone! Who wants to play a game?



    Who here remembers the golden age of Turk, when requesters paid >$10/hr and batches proliferated, where sharing was the name of the game and autoaccept was a myth like bigfoot? Who here remembers the frustration of the October turk season, when hits were scarce and fighting abounded.

    Who remembers trick or treat hits?

    That's right, after what, 3 years? I'm running my trick or treat hits again! It's a little different this time, more details will come, but until then the best part: QUAL TESTS!

    In order to participate in this event you'll need my qualification. Instructions for getting it are below. I auto-approve qual requests every 2 minutes (assuming you get the password correct), if you get a rejection or you don't get it after a while contact me and we can work it out. I'll be posting this again to make sure everyone has it before the first batch goes live. Happy Halloween!

    Qual Test Instructions:
    The test is located at https://worker.mturk.com/qualifications/3SQNX5G5Q9OVDC8GA6T1OW28G42QKD and the password is

    D9D9C49B189900FB06B0358FEF49A928

    Just copy that and paste it into the box and you should be good in 2 minutes (ish). That's all you need!

    The F is a trick or treat hit?
    For you young whippersnappers who don't remember the Golden Days of Turk (tm), I used to run a thank-you event for the community every October. Why October? Halloween is my favorite holiday, and the hits tended to be scarce around that time so this gave people something to look forward to. The way it works is simple:

    I'll post 1-2 batches per week, and I'll try to give some kind of notification around the time so people are aware. The notice is anywhere from an hour to 0 notice at all, depends on what I'm doing at the time. The batch would be for about 5 cents or something, not really worth writing home about, but that's not the fun part. The HIT itself consists of a button that you click. When you click the button, there's a 50% chance you will submit the hit which will auto approve in like a minute (You got a "Treat"). However, there's a 50% chance that you will get a "Trick" and the HIT will require you to return it. This is different than in previous years for reasons I won't get into. Suffice it to say if you get a screen that says "YOU GOT TRICKED", return the hit so others can play. You'll get another chance another day. See "Hit Structure" for more info.

    And that's it! It's a fun thing I do to give back to the mturk community. All of you have been my friends and family for so many years, it's the least I can do.

    Hit structure. NOTE: Different this years
    So in prevoius years I was able to auto-return the hits. This isn't the case anymore, unfortunately. If you get a "trick", you'll be dumped to a "YOU GOT TRICKED" page, and you'll have to return the hit. Please be a good sport and return it, I have protections in place for force submission and circumvention. If I do find out you've cheated, you'll be granted a "cheater" qual which will permanently remove you from all of my hits, now and in the future, so play nice. The hits don't pay that well, you're not missing out on much. It's for the fun of the holiday, not to make a profit.

    When you accept the hit, you'll get to a page with a button that says "Click Here". Click that to play. There's a 50% chance you'll get a "Trick" and have to return, and a 50% chance you'll get a "Treat" and it'll submit itself (and approve automatically).

    As usual, this is a testing thing and may break. Please be patient with me as I work through the kinks of the new interface and new mturk SDK. If you have problems let me know.

    Happy Halloween Everypony!

    Wasn't there only a 10 minute timer on this one? (and he still rejected:worried:)

    I tried to catch it earlier today but didn't. So not sure.

    I wonder if that's the default or if he put that there.

    I would have done it if I had caught it but I was busy at that time. Guess I will avoid his HIT now.

    Oh no! I'm afraid to look. I started it with less than 4 min. to go, so I quickly watched the video and submitted with 10 sec. on the timer...here I go...sigh.

    rejected :crying:

    :nervous::nervous:



    EDIT:

    Oh no! There were actually very few people that got approved. It seems very random. Someone submitted after 2 minutes and didn't get rejected.

    okay...my whole reason for popping in was to post this hit. I was screaming mad because it claims you can quit any time and I couldn't figure out how (so if that is your plan be sure to read those instructions better) cuz it is long, long, long! But...it claims I got a $27 something bonus, so if that is true it is completely worth a panda.

    Ahhh, no one knows with Andy hits. I've gotten enough money off of him for such little work I'm not even bothered by it.
