    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!

    DOOT DOOT!

    It's that time of year again folks. That's right, it's trick or treat time!

    I need to make something clear before the link to the hit: This is very much a testing setup. If something breaks I'm sorry, and I'll do my best to fix it. Please report any issues (other than tricks) so I can track them down.

    HIT info is in the spoiler
    Title: Trick or Treat Turk! Happy Halloween! | Accept
    Requester: Tjololo [A189FMMFDLIGXG] Contact
    TV: [Hrly=$34.02] [Pay=Generous] [Approval=~24 hrs] [Comm=Unrated] [Rej=0] [Blk=0]
    TO: [Pay=1.00] [Fast=0.00] [Comm=0.00] [Fair=0.00] [Reviews=1] [ToS=0]
    TO2: No Reviews
    Reward: 0.31
    Duration: 1:00:00
    Available: 1
    Description: Will you get a trick or a treat?
    Qualifications: Double Dip DoesNotExist ; Brony EqualTo 100; Cheater DoesNotExist

    Qualification information is in the spoiler as well
    FYI my requester ID is A189FMMFDLIGXG

    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!

    Greetings from Amazon Mechanical Turk,

    You've received a bonus from Sandro Ambuehl for work related to 3C8QQOM6JPAZ4EOEKMWY8BOBLF0ILH.
    The value of your bonus is: $26.00 USD

    The Requester included this note:
    Thank you for participating in our survey. Here is your bonus, plus an additional to make up for the fact that we inadvertently posted the HIT for 0, rather than 5.

    Thanks for being a Worker on Mechanical Turk!


    It looks like they really did mean for the hit to be $15 and not $10.
