As I mentioned on the daily hit page, I am brand new to turking and the forum. I intentionally waited until I finished the probation period to join as sort of an award to myself. I've browsed many of the threads on this forum and decided to join because I think the info, the community, and the spirit here is more in line with my way of thinking than some other forums that are available. I work full time so turking is supplemental income to me. However, retirement is (hopefully) only a few years away so I'm taking this seriously and hope to grow both my experience and expertise. I plan on being in this for the long haul. 44 y/o married guy with 2 kids from upstate NY. Thanks for these forums and congrats to the new Masters. 'Nuf about me. Back to growing my numbers. Happy New Years everyone.
