    There's like 700 of them available, you can skip the ones that have an error. But I wouldn't do them right now - something is wrong with them, there is no donor link in the HITS. Either the job is screwed up, or somebody is majorly scamming the retrieval tasks.

    That is a big problem since thought extractions weren't even supposed to be posted if there was no donor list found.

    I think what was happening was when a website location hit was finished, it was automatically feeding those into extraction hits instead of retrieval hits, or at least that's what it look liked.

    This was my thought exactly. People on this thread seem to jump to the "people are scamming!" conclusion a little too quickly.

    Hopefully this gets sorted out. I feel like the way things are running now are the way they should've been from the start. So thank you and good luck ocmp34!

    Yeah it didn't seem likely scamming was the explanation since even if someone was scamming and putting N/A those wouldn't be pushed through to the extraction task.

    I fixed the problem (it actually wasn't a turker - just a bad if statement). I've posted the second half of the NY batch as I need to sort through the original batch. Thanks for your quick catch!

    You're bang on. It was a problem with one of my if statements.

    f1::


    Send {tab 3}
    sleep 100
    Send {enter}

    return

    f2::

    Send ^c
    Sleep 100
    Send ^w
    Sleep 100
    Send {tab}
    Sleep 100
    Send http://
    Sleep 100
    Send ^v
    Sleep 100

    return

    f3::

    Send ^w
    Sleep 100
    Send {tab 2}
    Sleep 100
    Send {space}

    return

    f4::

    Send {tab 2}
    sleep 100
    Send {enter}

    return



    (written by TurkorTreat and it's really great!)

    ETA: Forgot to mention- you gotta click in the hit's frame first before doing all this. And F1 and F3 also submit when you're done.

    Click in frame, F1 searches the first site. Highlight the url, hit F2. Cycle back through (f1, f2, etc.)

    If there's no url, hit F3 for n/a and then F4 will search the next non-profit.

    F1 and F2 go together, F3 and F4 go together.

    Hey guys, I know I'm late to the party, and there's already been an AHK script written, but I wrote one around the same time as TurkorTreat for the Find Homepage HITs as well. It's specifically written for use with a mouse with the extra forward/back buttons.

    It's real easy to use. Click the first search URL, highlight the URL of the website in Google, and press the back button on your mouse. This copies the link to the clipboard, closes the tab, tabs to the "Homepage" field, pastes it, and tabs to the next search.

    Shift acts as the Enter key, so you can press the Shift key to open the next search. Rinse and repeat until you are done.

    If the website is n/a, press the forward button on the mouse to go through the motions (close tab, check n/a box, tab to next search).

    The next key, F2, is for when organizations have a name that include "&" (for instance, "Herbert F & Bertha W Darling Trust"). When you click the link to search for the organization, you may notice that it only includes the part of the name written before the "&" symbol.

    When on the Google Search page, simply press F2, and it will highlight the URL in the address bar, cut it, change the "&" to "%26" (the proper way to add & to a Google search in the search page's URL), paste the fixed URL, and press enter for you, to search for the organization properly.

    This is merely the setup that has worked for me since OCMP34 changed the find homepage HITs to it's current format, but you can change it around, or not even bother using it. I just figured I'd throw it up here for you guys to look at/try out.

    I hope this is helpful for anyone who may be interested in using it, and thanks TurkorTreat for the original AHK script :cool:

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, you can suspend the script with CapsLock. Turning on CapsLock will enable the script, turning it off should suspend it. Useful for if you want to quickly toggle the script to maintain your mouse's original forward/back button functions.

    I just did something like 7 or 8 of the find the URL ones that were n/a's. I swear I'm not scamming. lol. I keep accepting the next one just to find a link to prove I'm trying and they're all n/a's too. Sad. My first few had a 100% success rate. Anyone else nervous by big batches of n/a's?

    You're talking about "Find the Homepage" correct? That one has about a 40% n/a rate. If you're talking about the "Retrieve the Donor List" task, for this batch retrieval rates are currently around 18% (which could be artificially high if folks are throwing back n/as).

    oh, great. I was worried, but I think my numbers match up to that pretty well. Thanks.

    I think there is a typo for the bonus (or the bonus is wrong)- the hit says 10c per list you find, but I'm only getting a bonus of 5c?

    Aaaaagh and I just fixed the extraction bonus from .05 to .07 too. Looks like I made the changes in sandbox but not production.

    Yeah, the "Find the Homepage" one. I'd say 60% success is about right. I think I just hit a bum patch. Finding that a lot of the family foundations don't have websites, nor do a good chunk of the pet charities run by bigger groups (only the bigger group has a website...which I've tried to notate as I find them).

    That's exactly what I've seen, too, if it makes you feel any better. :)

    Will batches be posted this weekend?

    Nope - I'll be relaxing.

    In fact - sorry folks - because Bad Things tend to happen when I don't monitor closely (nothing to do with the quality of your work - just errors on my part!), I'll be pausing the task when I leave for the night, or in about ten minutes.
