    So, I get how to find the stats from the last 45 days, but is there somewhere that shows the account status overall? I want to keep track of how long I have been working on MTurk and have a horrible memory. I know it's been a couple of months at least.

    As for my current stats, not that impressive...

    676 HITs submitted, $7.29 in bonuses..$163.77 total earnings...
    (at least I only have one rejection due to an accidental hit of the enter key which resulted in a premature submission.)

    Other than not spending the entire day doing .05 - .10 batch HITS...not sure what I'm doing wrong. I have to admit I don't bother with the transcription. It can easily take 5-10 minutes to transcribe 1-3 minutes of audio (especially the way most people can't even get out a sentence without stuttering all over themselves these days) so I don't even want to touch something that is almost an hour...

    I'm thinking I need to spend more time on Crowdsource HITS maybe?
    Would also love it if someone has a trick to keeping track of who you've already done surveys for without having to click through each day's submissions, how the requesters expect us to know if we've already done their HIT, when many are so similar, I'll never understand.

    Anyways, if anyone knows of a way to find overall stats or any other tips I'd appreciate the info.

    I do mostly transcriptions. You get used to the rambling quick enough, and once you get good it becomes a pretty decent source of income. My best recommendation is you don't do survey's. I've heard tons of random crap about bad HIT rejections and things like that. I'd rather not risk it.

    As for Crowdsource, I couldn't stand doing those tasks. There was always that limited amount you could complete (for perfectly viable reasons) and it was always so boring. I tried to be efficient and found that I was making like $2 an hour.. not great.

    Surveys are great to do. I received a $45 bonus for a $.50 survey, so don't overlook them.

    the surveys are a nice distraction from the more menial tasks, but some of them are so intrusive i get easily annoyed, the longer they are the more pissed off i am by the end of the survey so my answers are completely skewed. i'm up over 1200 HITS performed now with one rejection and almost 20 bucks in bonus payment so.. i'm getting there ;P Just wish I could get that coveted Master title ;)
