    Nobody knows. Do a lot of categorization HITs. Supposedly, some people got it not long after doing a batch of Amazon Requester HITs, but the exact qualifications to receive it are a mystery.

    Well let's see....

    They say to do a variety of hits from many different requesters......... but watch out how many different requesters you work for as you don't want to get blocks from those unsavory types. Then do many, many hits........but not too many hits as you don't want to chance a mass rejections from an unsavory requester that will send your approval percentage plummeting. Next, do a really good job on all of those new and different requesters so that those that are unsavory and are going to screw you over anyway receive quality work for nothing. Oh and finally, keep your fingers crossed because I am pretty sure they just pick random names out of a hat anyway. LOL

    Congratulations!
    I, too, am curious about your stats.

    What sort of HITs do you do, too? Do you work for crowdflower, oscar, Tagasaurious, etc?

    I can tell you I have done about 1500-2000 in the last 45 days and I have about a 99.9% rate.
    about 8 rejections out of 2000 - I have been grinding hard to get my overall approval above 95%.

    So overall approval % must have a small factor. I am glad I have it.

    But I have done work for a dozen or more requesters + the surveys that pop up.

    I'm just wondering if they want you to do a certain % of the super-bulk but super-low-paying HITs (image tagging and poorly paying relevance specifically) to get/keep the MQ. I know you were (iirc) scammed a while back and kicked out of some of the better paying ones?

    (and yes, I'm THAT cynical. lol.)

    You are receiving this email because a requester has granted you the following qualification:

    Qualification: Photo Moderation Masters
    Requester: Amazon Mechanical Turk
    Qualification Value: 100

    I dont know. I know have worked for over two dozen requesters, not counting survey. I have had a 99.6% Rate in the last 45+ days. Plus maybe it was an early birthday gift from Amazon too. lol

    I am thinking they want you to work regular. (I have doen at least 1-5 hits every day for the last 45+)
    Most days I do 40-150 on average.

    I was granted a few good qualifications from the transcribing requesters.

    3-4 weeks ago, I did some of the amazon categorization qualifications (about 25-30) when they pop up around Tuesday evenings. (Search for Qualification or Qual - I forgot)

    I can only look at the "evidence" in what I have done, and assume how you get it.


    But I have already found one of my fav requesters that req the master qual :)

    That's not it. I work every single day and do 100+ 99% of the time. I've had over 99% approval for months and never below 97%.

    This is more likely, as I have heard most Cat Masters say this same thing -- they got the qual not long after doing a good batch of Amazon Requester categorization HITs.

    I agree on the doing hits regularly not having anything to do with it. I turk pretty much everyday. When I do it is well over 100 hits each day. I have 280,000+ approved and a 99.7% approval rate. But I don't have the master qual.

    Not real sure on the AR hits either. I have done tons of them and received the qual upgrade a long time ago and still........... no masters.

    The problem is, I don't think it is any ONE thing. AMT may be sneaky at times but they are not stupid. More then likely it is doing A + B + C + D = masters. Some masters recall doing A and some B, C or D... but nobody has quite figured out what all those variables are together.

    I'm almost positive you're right. And of course, no one ever gets it immediately after doing anything new, so they can never really tell exactly what they have done different than anybody else. Damn you Amazon!! *shakes fist*

    That's hilarious that someone with under 5,000 HITs is considered a "Master" by amazon and yet a person with 280,000 HITs completed with 99% accuracy isn't? Ridiculous.
