    Hi All,

    I started my first batch of a 100 HITs last Sunday afternoon and so far got only 68 of them submitted.
    I was planning to launch 11,000 HITs of the same type but wanted to do see how worker do on a small batch first. The submission rate is pretty concerning to me. I was expecting the 100 HITs to get done in a couple of hours. I pay $0.25 for each HIT (which should take 2 to 3 minutes to complete).
    The HITs are posted at https://worker.mturk.com/projects/34W4CI95J07L0JYW16LPB1933YCI9J/tasks

    I'd appreciate any feedback or advice on how I would get more people to work on my HITs. Thanks,

    Hi, Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting.

    I haven't tried your batch but I looked into why they aren't being done. Some workers have left feedback explaining why. Those below are from workers who returned your HIT with these comments. Hope this helps.

    If they already know what needs to be changed enough to stop you from ever submitting it, why are they paying us to do it? Doesn't let you submit, something is always flagged.

    No matter what I do, it won't let me submit the HIT. It's saying some of my edits are invalid.

    These are horrible. You have to edit 7 sentences and then it will tell you some of them are wrong but now which ones.

    Did everything it asked and still kept getting "Some of the edits are invalid. Please, check the instructions and try again." Cutting my losses and returning this one.

    Thanks a lot for sharing the comments. These are very useful for me to know what went wrong with the HITs.
    Is there a way for me to access these comments?

    Yes you can by signing up for TurkerView as a requester and be able to view and respond to these comments. On the top right on the red square, you can sign up through there.
