    Note that badass si usually used as a positive thing and sux is used as a negative term, therefore you're pretty much arguing with yourself ^_^

    .. Badass because they have most amount of HIT's in mturk and suxx cause they pay lesser than most of the requester and delay the payment as well..

    I agree with you they sucks because:

    1- they only allow you to work on limited approx. 10 hits even if you accuracy was 100%.
    2- their evaluation system is stupid you will be rejected for no fair reasons.
    3- they don't tell if you are qualified for the hits or not, until you accept the hit and probably you will be not qualified and have to return the hit.
    4- they pay very low for too many entries per hit.
    5- some of their hits have too many complicated rules and instructions.
    6- slow approval.

    +1 for this post. I really agree with you Emmy. I don't want to see their HITs any more.

    I've done around 20k hits from CrowdFlower and concluded this. They never approve or reject hits. Not a single reject! They have auto accept set at 86400 (exactly 24h), and as soon as you submit your hit you know that tomorrow at the same time it will be accepted and paid. They aren't slow - slow is to wait 2-3 weeks for acceptance. Most of the requesters need more than 24h to pay you.

    They pay really low wages for the amount of work, but sometimes there are some good and profitable hits, you just have to catch them.

    If you found some good paying HITs then please share once.

    I dislike this requester more then any other at the moment. I have done numerous jobs for them and suddenly I get hit with a low accuracy because somebody decided that their 'opinion' is correct and that my 'opinion' is wrong.

    These are not always straight forward jobs. They may ask for you to choose the most relevant article and then after you are told it's wrong they reveal they want the asociation between the media outlet and the topic relation instead.

    Right now they are really ticking me off, they have the exact same work posted about a dozen time for 500 hits each. But all the titles are very different. Pay is extremly low on these and the amount of work is high and very time consuming.
    Currently they are posting the same work over and over 1cent higher then crowd source.

    I avoid them at all costs now.

    I agree.. I do not want to see crowdflower any more. They are the reason for most of my returned hits.. I go to the hit and it looks available, I click on it, and then it says there are no more hits available. Never want to see theirs on there again. Wish there was a way to dispute returned hits for this very reason.
