    Please send your worker Id via Pm by clicking on Requestor name . I have also sent my Id but have not got the qualification. I can see 15000 hits were released for qual 50 today .

    I meet few similar situations in AUSTRALIAN Batch where on official site they mentioned Inner suburbans in place of CITY and where as on hit there is main city name like example : "Woolloomooloo" New South Wales 2011 on Official site and on hit "SYDNEY" so do i need to edit the city or i can keep it as same?

    Because we have very high standards for quality and our hits can require several steps, we haven't been letting in a lot of new workers. Keep in mind it takes a while for us to analyze and approve new workers. We will probably run another new qualification batch (for those with score 0) in the next few weeks.

    Use your judgment here. If the city listed on the site is actually part of the larger city (as it seems in this case) you can keep the larger city in the hit. If it's outside of the city in the hit, then change it. Does that help?

    One thing I'd highly recommend, after doing the last 0 batch, is for you guys to incorporate a lot of the little details about the HITs that are discussed in depth in this thread into the FAQ/instructions. When I did them last time, I felt like a lot of little details were missing, and it was only in passing after the batch was done that I picked up things that I had been doing incorrectly from people chattering about the HITs on the daily Greatest HITs thread. This thread is a great resource, but at the same time, I'd rather not have to come search a thread if I had a question about the instructions in a HIT while I'm working on it.

    There are things that are extremely obvious to the people who've already been working on these HITs since the start that just don't make as much sense to people approaching the HITs from a completely fresh perspective. I wanted to kick myself when I realized what I'd been doing wrong.

    TOTW, in regards to when you do open up a new qualification batch...what's your typical "prerequisites" for # of approved hits?

    Their HITs require:
    Total approved HITs is not less than 5000
    HIT approval rate (%) is not less than 95

    Hi TOTW,
    I agree that you will follow high standards of quality & strict procedure for granting qual , But you cannot analyse new workers until they are given some tasks. I suggest you putup a qualification test for new workers with some tough questions based on same theme of your Hit & give qualifications points based on best scorers in qualifications test . The same method is followed by many requestors to grant qualifications .
    Iam not offending your way of granting qual , but Just a small suggestion which will help very serious workers & workers like me who are eagerly waiting for qualification
    Thank you for understanding .

    Has anyone else been having problems getting these the TOTW hits to work on FireFox? Ever since last week I've only been getting a white screen in the hit window and nothing is showing other than the mturk interface. It only seem to be doing this for me on these hits. Though they do seem to work for me on Chrome, which I do not really prefer but it works for the time being. It has nothing to do with my scripts/addons either since i tried it with them all turned off, and nothing.

    If anyone has a solution for this please let me know

    TOTW, do you have a preference for phone number format? (xxx) xxx-xxxx or xxx-xxx-xxxx? Or no preference at all? Just curious.

    Question I am working on the batch titled "Verify that sightseeing tours meet a set of criteria". The guidelines say that at least one tour must be a single day or partial day tour and I have a of the tours listed as a 1 or 2 day tour. Would I mark that as meeting the guidelines granted the other prerequisites are true?

    I don’t know where you guys are scraping these restaurants from, but you would think after something has been closed 5, 6, 7 years that the word would eventually get around.

    Are these Masters HITs going to count towards a qualification?

    Hello All!

    We decided to take a little hibernation period... some unexpected database issues, and who knew we all like to take vacations in the summer?! New hits should be coming soon, and we hope to be fully back on track by next week.

    how do we get qualified for this? I requested it, but wondering if there's something specific the requester is looking for or if it's completely random who they accept.

    I'm just wondering if you'll be posting a 0 qual batch soon? I saw the comment above about there being one in a few weeks, but I was hoping for an update on that. Thanks!

    Awesome news! Thanks for the update.

    Read through the thread. If you can't take the time out to browse through it, then you prob don't want the qual bad enough.

    Hoping with the kids going back to school that maybe you could use some more workers and you will post a qualification again. I always miss it :(
