    The thing you are talking about is actually about the Training hit and no worries for that. That test will give you an idea about the Oscar HITs, what to type and how to type in a particular field considering the business card in the context. The score is not affected by this training tasks. Score will come later after doing some card HITs.

    Thanks a lot Riaz for clarifying doubts working in Oscar Smith hits.
    So far, I have filled all addresses in the form if there is more than one address in the Business Card. Also I have doubt why same cards repeatedly come again and again.

    Another Doubt: If there is more than one name for example in a Medical Associate there is many Doctor names found in the card. I fill all names found in the card like this: 'Dr. X / Dr. Y / Dr. Z'
    Is it right? or should I have to fill only one name which is the first one?

    I have completed more than 15k of Oscar hits alone with not less than 80% score and requested to work in his $0.05 hits. Not yet got this qualification.

    I have to Thank Oscar Smith for approving all my hits and paying faster than other requesters. He gives me an opportunity for a good start in mturk.

    I am actually personally boycotting Oscar. He has not added any new Qualified workers in who knows how long. I keep watching the number under the qualified and that number has been the same for at least the last two months. Guess I'm afraid that if he does start acepting new people, my score will have dropped since then.

    I hope you all the best of luck! If you get it to 92, sit on it!

    Bro.. you need not have to worry about that, it happens sometimes and in rare case with many turkers. Even I got this many times, after doing a HIT from Oscar with available 20 HITs and even putting on the accept next hit check button on, I seen this message many times, that is because sometimes the shown available HITs are not exactly correct or because all are the other turkers worked on it simultaneously. So the thing is you will have to check with in a frequent interval for more available Oscar HITs.

    Hi writermom,

    Please read it as Trusted Worker Qualification(TWQ) and not master qualification. Also now the sad truth is that many people now telling that no people are now qualified for the TWQ scheme of Oscar. I think now Oscar is making fun of all. So My advice is not to do Oscar for the time being until there is a news that new guys are got TWQ.

    What you say is right. I have scored 93% in some days where there was Oscar Smith hits were much available and I have done not less than what you say 500 hits to get the TWQ but, I didn't send him any request for qualifying for it. But, my scoring comes down nowadays I don't know the reason why? Generally I don't commit any mistakes in typing and filling all the fields as per his instruction. But, I am doubt about Oscar about his evaluation of hits I do.

    He is not showing interest to give the TWQ not only for me for any Real Trusted Workers.
    But, to increase my earnings and to increase my scoring percentage I work for Oscar.

    So Please understand Friends.

    I would suggest using a script for this purpose, specifically the "Mturk HIT database". This tool opens up a variety of search options that allow you to search HITs you have already completed and filter them by the criteria you specify. If you are unfamiliar with javascript, its uses or how to install a script I would highly recommend that you install a script management tool as a precursor (greasemonkey if you prefer Firefox and tampermonkey if you prefer Chrome).
    ***Tampermonkey may prove invaluable if you use Chrome as Google has recently made policy changes that prevent the installation of scripts natively if they have not obtained through the Chrome Store and this script is not available there.***

    I encountered issues getting tampermonkey and the "Mturk HIT database" to work in Chrome V.26 as the database displays a perpetual message saying "script monkeys are preparing to start working" when attempting to update the database. I was not able to find a valid workaround so I have been reduced to downgrading my Chrome to V.23 (as is the latest known version of chrome with which tampermonkey and "Mturk HIT database" are stable).

    As for quality rating with Oscar Smith, I have performed about 350 or so HITs for this requester over the last week with what I would consider a high level of accuracy (I rarely make typing errors when performing this type of transcription) yet I have watched my quality score diminish with Oscar. The only logical inference I could possibly draw is that Oscar uses "peer review" or "majority rules" analytics to extrapolate this value which would also explain why there are individuals reporting duplicate business cards (of which I believe I have performed some as well but I can not state that with a high degree of certainty).
    For example, the hypothetical business card presented is for John Doe. John is directly employed by "cosmetic suppliers, Inc." (displayed in small text), a subsidiary of its parent company Revlon (displayed in larger text). The majority of individuals who transcribed this business card have entered "Revlon" as the company name (likely because it is branded and displayed in larger text). You have inputted the information as "cosmetic suppliers, Inc." which is more than likely the most correct answer however, because the majority indicated "Revlon" as his company's name than your answer now becomes incorrect. For Oscar this does not mean your work will be rejected but I would wager this would affect your quality score with him.

    I genuinely enjoy performing HITs for this requester (some would consider the pay low but for me I find this type of data entry quite relaxing) however I do find that there is certainly some room for improvement. I believe that if his instructions were a bit more descriptive and addressed the FAQ's that would generate much less need to contact him for clarification and would likely improve his turnaround on correspondence.

    I'm not sure how valuable the TWQ is. Right now, they do have a bunch of the five cent TWQ hits up, but he has many more of the two cent hits. Often they have no five cent hits there, and if you do a two cent hit, you will be paid 2 cents. Regardless of whether you have TWQ. Since "Oscar" became Linkedin, I am not even sure that the original policies would even be in affect. Does anyone know when the changeover actually occurred? Has it been within the last year, or longer?
