    I think everyone wonders that at first. I know I did! As I mentioned above, the more experience you gain, the more access you get to better-paying hits. It can be slow and somewhat discouraging at first, but keep at it.

    Welcome! As far as I know, the really useful scripts are only available on Chrome and Firefox. You may also find that those browsers are the best ones to use for doing hits, so it may be best to bite the bullet and start using one of those.

    Keep plugging away - it'll get easier!

    Yeah the longer you do this the better the pay becomes. Just in general when you first start out your pay will not be good for a combination of reason one you don't have the quals to do a lot of hits and the hits you do access to tend to not pay as much. The second is you are new to turk so don't know all the ins and outs of how to make money yet.

    The first is fixed by just time and work. I think of early days of joining mturk as pledging a frat it sucks and its horrible but you do it for the benefits you get at the end. The second is fixed by asking questions and just gaining more experience.

    I'd definitely recommend checking out the daily hit thread here is the one for today http://mturkforum.com/showthread.php...ursday!/page16 since that is where most people hang out and its the best place to ask questions. Also recommend you get an avatar the more recognizable you are the more inclined people are to help.
    "The ancient teachers of this science," said he, "promised impossibilities and performed nothing. The modern masters promise very little; they know that metals cannot be transmuted and that the elixir of life is a chimera but these philosophers, whose hands seem only made to dabble in dirt, and their eyes to pore over the microscope or crucible, have indeed performed miracles.

    Welcom! (this reply is my first post on the forum (woohoo!))

    I'm learning the ins and outs of the system. I started out dissapointed with the payouts for the hits that are available to me, but I've learned that as you complete hits, you get access to more high paying gigs. I can't wait for that to happen for me

    Good luck!
