How can I be sure this isn't a photo and all the other images of the earth I've seen have been lies?
I'm not noticing ANY throttle
I wasn't joking when I said he wants to go to the moon. He's calling his endeavor Blue Origin. Even with his CIA partnership I guess they haven't told him yet that going to the moon (let alone establishing a moon base) isn't possible.
The throttling on these fools are terrible. Panda + "GoHam" mode for the past 10 minutes and only 7 caught so far :rolleyes: I wish they'd divide the batch up, or stick to night time posting like they usually do.
It seems to go in spurts. I'll catch like 5 in 2 minutes then wait another 2-3 minutes for my next batch.
Is there any specific reason I'm getting "there are no Hits in this group available to you at the moment" from this Fools batch even though it says there are thousands left?

There's 5 of these type up. Each one takes about 2 minutes of reading and writing.
It's called throttling. It was invented so you'd get angry and smash your computer so you'd have to buy a new one from Amazon.
I somehow am at $89 for the day. Not quite sure how that happened. The batches at 4am really helped. I think Peter Clarke may be my new favorite requester.
I like some of his HITs and others not so much but overall he's good and never got a rejection from him.
That seemed to get better once they'd finished uploading.
Better meaning it dropped down to normal throttling, not waiting for error messages.
Edit: or maybe it was just that enough people had given up by that point
Well I couldn't accept the foolMT hits through Mturk, but panda crazy let me get them. Was fun while it lasted.
Clay Finks get your 10 in they look intimidating but are really easy.
It's interesting how people end up with different approaches to throttling. I generally end up working without a panda.
I don't think there is a right answer. It kinda sucks no matter what.
Yeah I definitely have mixed results depending on the day or hits it seems.

Oops, I'm mistaken. I thought the purpose of MT was to get the requesters' work done, but I guess not.

Lucas, how's the house restoration going?
Great! A little slow but great. The weather has not been great for mortar or painting, two things that I have been doing. It is definitely expensive that is for sure.
You can follow the restoration if you have a facebook:
