    It's hilarious to me that I'd never heard of Turk before 2 weeks ago. I know that most things online are scams and that the adage "If it sounds too good to be true" holds very well on the internet. Most of the time "If it sounds reasonable, it probably still isn't true".

    But I regularly google for things like "legitimate ways to make money online" and am very very skeptical of everything. The key reason I signed up to turk is because it has Amazon's name on it. So this service is several years old and I'm just now finding it

    Thing is though, Turk isn't too good to be true. I'm not knocking it. Working several hours per month for $400 or full timing it for $1500 (as I've seen claims of) isn't a genie in a bottle, it's just respectable.

    But it sure is something.

    I'm really just looking for something to augment my income at the moment. I seated myself firmly between a rock and a hard place a while back and Turk may well rescue me. It's not terrible work, but entry level turking does mostly feel like a rip off. Working for "$4.00/hr" before taxes, yay!

    I've gotten my numbers up mostly with Shiver. Not exceptionally well paying but it just wants to know about how you would query your smart phone for information. It's not bothersome work but I certainly do wish it paid better and I can't wait to be done, to move on to something more substantial.

    So I'm saving up savings, and I'm saving for Christmas but before both of those, I'm probably going to replace my computer. I love me some 3D modeling but my laptop just really struggles with it (dedicated video cards are great for the modeling I'm doing, but this laptop just has a stock AMD, not really good for it).

    My goal honestly would be $20-30/day. I think that's reasonable since I don't know what turking past entry-level is like.

    I can't wait for the 100/day limit to be gone.

    Sounds like you are off to a good start.

    there are a couple of levels:
    1000 approvals:
    5000 approvals:
    Masters.

    and there are a lot of good batches that have their own qualifying tests

    Due to a change in pricing masters will be invaluable after July, and it is awarded somewhat mysteriously but 50k approvals and 99+% approval rates are good starts. However there are turkers who have worked for 3 years without getting it.

    You are doing well thatdudegrim! Keep up the good work.

    Masters doesn't necessarily come after 5000 approvals. I think someone got it at around 3000 approvals or less. Obtaining masters is so random that no one knows how we get it.

    I'm 1 year in and 330k with fake 100% without it. Masters is so random you cannot really attempt to work for it. Its like attempting to work towards winning the lotto.
