    Hi all, we've been having a great conversation over in the daily hits thread, but let's let that thread do its own work.

    I'll be using this board and some qual hits to curate a workforce I can pay better but expect better accuracy from. More details to come.

    So what is the qual score we will need to do the Hits? I was seeing mixed answers in the Great Hits thread.

    Keeping an eye on here, as I've never been fast enough to snag an OCMP qual.

    Ive only managed 1 OCMP qual, just not around at the right time i guess. Looking forward to the possibilities with this one.

    Just putting my .02 -- if you can make a curated workforce work for you I think it would really be a win-win. I was in on the OCMP50 bonanza since Mid-December - and I watched the spamming get worse and worse as the task went on. I would gladly put up my workerID and have you quality check things to keep my quals. As a worker, I'm frustrated that spammers are taking work away from me, and that they are making more work for me to clean up their mess. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be on your end.

    I totally agree. The spamming got really awful. There are a lot of really good workers but it gets frustrating to see that scammers are getting paid the same as we are and nothing seems to be done about it.

    Thanks! Been doing the Donor Extraction hits for about a week now. Looking forward to having an easy place to ask for clarification.

    Hi everyone,

    First of all, I want to apologize right now if I'm not as prompt as I'd like. Even though managing HITs on my end is pretty time-consuming, this is actually just one small part of my job - so sometimes I won't be as prompt as I'd like, but I'm going to try to build some mutual respect here.

    What I'm going to do is set up a qual called OCMP34's Curated Workforce. Then, this is how I'll do things:

    1. You inbox me your worker ID. If you can, put it in the subject line - it makes things easier for me, but I'll survive if you don't.
    2. You'll get a qual for OCMP34's Curated Workforce at a score of 50.
    3. I'll open a batch of quals for you that you'll take and get your score. If you get less than a passing score, DON'T WORRY - send me feedback, and I'll either make sure the machine wasn't too finnicky or talk you through what your mistake was.
    4. Your two quals* will give you access to our two main tasks, retrieval and extraction.

    We have at least 800,000 records that need processing. There is plenty of work and I have a comfortable budget. All I ask is honesty and a little patience - I'm a one man show.

    *There's some conversation on the other thread about whether quals should be free or paid. I don't intend to offer any unpaid quals, but qual pay is generally less than actual task pay.

    Right now, I'm working through the worker IDs in my inbox.

    You should receive an e-mail like any other qual I would imagine.
