    Hey there, just deciding to introduce myself now. I've lurked this forum for a while now to see the great HITS, but I never make more than 2 dollars a day after about an hour, hour and a half, of work, I just became discouraged and quit mTurking for a year. Well I'm back for this summer just trying to make some side cash for stuff my last 2 months in college, and decided to really, really try at it now.

    Trying to figure out how people can make upwards of 5, let alone 10 bucks an hour with this. This is what I've made so far, following advice I've seen online, I've download TO and the HIT DB for Chrome, I used to spend like 2 hours straight transcribing business cards to make about $2.50 after it all, finally realized how terrible that was. I finally started just looking for surveys that would pay about .20 or .30 after 10-12 minutes, but I still feel like I'm doing this all wrong.

    I figured hitting the 500 mark finally would improve stuff a little bit, is there something else I'm missing about this whole mTurk thing?
