    Just copy and paste it.

    It will automatically do so.

    Yes. Your best bet is to copy and paste from the navigation bar. Less margin for forgetting to put it there. If you're copying from underneath the Google result, you're gonna have a bad time.

    Select the entire URL, Press Ctrl+C, and then paste it. It should automatically input the http://

    Thanks. Follow-up dumb question. Does the two minutes start from the time I get to the bottom of the page or just from the time the page loads? I forgot to go to the bottom before I started my timer. Doh!

    I still have 1 pending from the 29th, all the other ones have been approved a few days ago. Really weird.

    Hey guys! I took most of last week and this week off. I was really hoping to login and see a lot of great HITs posted, but I guess it isn't going to happen today. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year's. I guess I will go watch some TV or something. Does anyone know how long we can expect for it to be this slow? (I'm assuming this is due to the holidays, correct me if I am wrong)

    The 2 minutes is the timer on the HIT itself. Has nothing to do with the search result you're looking at.

    The fastest way is to do ctrl+L then ctrl+C to copy the URL, then ctrl+shift+tab back to the hit and paste it in.

    I'm going to guess that they are viewing the time that it take to complete the HIT (from accept to submit)

    So if you have a HIT completion time of 20 seconds, they will reject. But if the time of the HIT is 2:15, then it will be accepted.

    Just my guess.

    On these delf hits are you guys waiting the two minutes to do another search? doesn't seem worth it to me. Or can you have multiple windows open?

    A Crowdflower HIT:

    Male (The author is a boy or man)
    Female (The author is a girl or woman)

    I am soooo glad they explain the difference between male and female, I KNOW I would have been rejected otherwise.

    These are something I do while working on something else as well. Just sitting there for 2 minutes is a waste of time.

    Anyone have a clue as to why you have to wait?

    So.. Since you have to RETURN the Delf hits that don't yield the desired address, this means, if this does indeed occur, we will be left with a few lingering Delf HITs that we are unable to complete...

    He wants the visit to the website not to be a 'bounce', i.e. count as a valid visit. He doesn't care about the time you take to do the HIT, just the time you spend on the web page, but he can't monitor that directly.
    That's the best I can come up with.

    I'm guessing he's trying to improve the stats for the average length of time visitors spend on these sites. Which I'm pretty sure would be a violation of Amazon's policies, but hey, as long as he pays I ain't complaining.
