    What's this? Tj's back again? I don't know where I was going with this, I was trying to build hype, so pretend I said something exciting cuz it's time for YET ANOTHER TRICK OR TREAT HIT ANNOUNCEMENT WOOO!!!

    I said I'd be doing announcements throughout the week, it's still technically this week. I'll probably do another tomorrow then one over the weekend maybe, I don't know. The important thing is: Make sure to READ THE INFO ABOUT THE QUAL AND GET THE QUALIFICATION OR ELSE YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO DO THIS HITS. I've also gotten a LOT of donations to that paypal pool, which is super freaking awesome, it's up to $59! As Halloween comes up I'll try to balance pay and number of HITs based on the number of people who have the qual, so make sure you request it so I know about how much the money should be divvied up!

    For those who don't know what Trick or Treat hits are, here's a little explanation in this spoiler:

    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 a few 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 no 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. 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
    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).

    If the HIT submits and you get a treat, you will be ineligible for the next hit only. For example, if you win Monday, you will not be able to accept the hit Wednesday, but you will be able to accept on Friday to try again. It might SOUND confusing, but don't worry, I'm handling all of it with qualifications. The only thing you need to remember is: If you SEE a trick or treat hit, you can accept it.

    How do you participate? Well I'm glad that you asked! I have a QUALIFICATION you'll need to request in order to participate. I'm going to include this qualification information in every single posting I make about these HITs, PLEASE READ IT! If you're already familiar with how things go it should be easy, but I swear every year I get people who mess it up. Please take the time to read it, you have time. Also, please don't forward the qualification information around. I want this qual to be restricted to the communities who've been so helpful to me in the past. I don't really want random people to have the qual. It helps keep the pool smaller and gives more people the opportunity to play!

    With that being said, here's the qualification information:
    The test is located at https://worker.mturk.com/qualifications/31RWV6EUEVXHTS6BFO0H4JW1EG9UA8 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!

    As usual, this is a thing I do for fun, and may break. If you run into issues please let me know, but hopefully it'll be pretty easy. I've don this several times in the past and I don't expect any problems, but just in case, be patient. Also, the 50/50 chance is actually random. This is the code I use to determine whether people are tricked or treated: $approve = (rand(1,10) >= 6) ? true : false; That means "generate a number between 1 and 10, and if the number is 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, then approval is 'true'. If the number is 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10, the approval is 'false'". So there are 5 chances to "treat" and 5 chances to "trick". I could probably just do a simple binary true/false instead of a number between 1 and 10, but I like that method better.

    I know I'm a little late this year but it's been rough to schedule things. I'm planning on running 3 hits per week, starting on Monday, 10/19/2020. The dates and times will be TBD (and I like being able to switch it up a bit). As usual, if you win you will be granted a qual that will make you ineligible for the next HIT posted. Don't worry about it though, if you can see the trick or treat hit, you can accept the trick or treat hit.

    Finally, as usual, I'm hoping to do a bigger HIT on Halloween day as well. I usually pay a little better for that one, and put more HITs out there. If you want to donate to increase the pot, you can contribute to the pool here https://paypal.me/pools/c/8tkqnwbZjq PLEASE NOTE! Donating WILL NOT increase your chances of winning. There will still be a larger Halloween HIT, but in the past people have expressed interest in making it "bigger", so I started taking donations for that. All money donated will be going into Mechanical Turk and will be distributed as part of the Halloween HITs, I can provide proof if you really don't trust me.

    Happy Halloween Everypony, and good luck!

    P.S. This announcement will be posted several times over the next week. I'll try to capture everyone, but the qual information will also be posted with the HIT announcements too.

    About 5 minutes. There was no code and I messaged her and she realized it was her fault and fixed it (so it should generate a code now) and approved me after doing so.

    Find the emails of musicians by Justin Reign, I did 5 of the Find the emails of musicians hits from this requester and they rejected all of them when I tried my best on them. I contacted them and nothing yet. Stay far away.

    This wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I'm glad I caught it. I haven't been going to bed until after 3 am but I usually stop Turking well before than but too many good HITs keeping me on here late tonight.
