    Ahhhh, they're from Microsoft. That explains why they're not willing to pay anything.

    I have been avoiding them because their TO rating is not that good. Anyone have experiences with that requester to share?

    I hesitate to do too many more.

    (Pffffft. I'm seeing a lot of lousy photos where the sender is not clearly identifiable.)

    > "... If you choose these options too often, you will be blocked."

    Did a dozen, got one rejection
    ("Sorry; you picked a known bad answer"). ~:-/

    Ha ha, I bet the rejection was because I examined an image closely to discover the real name of the sender in obscure small-print, whereas most others probably chose the larger-printed wrong name ... I don't know for sure if that was the one that got rejected, but it makes sense under majority rules.

    That's a big problem with Readabl. I did some for them during their first month, when they didn't have any requirements, and an unacceptable amount were rejected. I thought that was odd since I only did HITs where I was 100% certain of who sent the catalog/letter.

    Then I looked at their $0.05 HITs where you gather contact information for the sender and noticed that a lot of them were associated with the wrong company. I saw one with three different pictures of a sales flyer from Radio Shack, that was labeled as "Great Deals." I gave up all hope of them being a good requester at that point.

    Edit: This HIT sums up what I think some people do: http://imgur.com/FqZfm

    I know when there were no requirements - I did these all the time.. Now since I am still under 95% (94%) I can't do them now. But I did notice they stopped the requirement to rotate, at least when I was still able to do so.

    But I never had a reject on these..

    They have changed the Qualifications required. Now you also have to have 5000 approved HITs and a country setting of US. I can understand the US part, but why someone with 5000 can do the job better than someone with 500 is a complete mystery to me.
