    Very true. I am not able to understand how Retrieve Donor List task goes faster than the "find the website" task. The former will take much longer time to complete, but the opposite is happening here.

    I think people are trying to complete as fast as they can so that they can get their equal share.

    From the last week big batch, I did around 35 - 40 HITS and got 14 bonus emails. So if you search a little in depth, I think we can find more donor list page in several non-profit sites.

    I'm not exactly sure how to respond. I make promises or post my schedule, but I'm a human being in a busy small company and things rarely go as planned. This is just one part of my job. I'm still grateful that I came to the boards many moons ago when I was ever so naive, but my job was much, much easier before there were faces and personalities and jokes to the worker IDs that submitted to me. Mistakes I've made that other requesters routinely make are amplified because there's a thread with my name on it. On the other hand, I've gotten invaluable advice and the quality of my data has increased dramatically.

    All I can say is this: For those of you who choose to stick with me, thank you. For those of you that don't, I apologize that my requester philosophy and my HITs aren't working out for you, but I'm grateful for the work you've done.

    With that said, I was just given a whole slew of other tasks that I need to dedicate myself to. I know there's a lot of "ocmp34" spotting that happens, but mostly I usually just leave a tab open with this thread.

    the issue isn't that we expect batches when none show up. a lot of us are frustrated because these HITs weren't exactly the most lucrative before for the time spent, and now for some reason, we are being penalized by more workers added to the qualification

    Sooooo... Are we going to see anymore updates/batches, or did we scare off a good requester?

    Hi all,

    First of all, apologies for the radio silence.

    Secondly, I have some news. Last week I resigned, so I'm working through my last week here in ocmp34land. I'm not sure yet who will be taking over for our tasks on mturk, but I will send them this way and hope they are as warmly welcomed as I was.

    Thanks all!

    Dear, What happened?

    Is we are the reason for this decision?

    I hope you got some better opportunity.

    Good luck. If you don't mind me asking are you going to be heading up another OCMP group doing something else for the company that hired OCMP34 for the charity hits or is it something completely different? Either way good luck again and hope everything goes well for you.
