    Yeah. Understandable... many have been.

    Thankfully around August/Sept they re-did their whole system.

    So now I don't look so crazy when I say I do their hits, haha.

    I guess I was just lucky these past couple years *shrugs*

    I didn't mean that anyone needed a single requester, but I see how it could be interpreted that way. I used Rubin specifically in that comment because the question was about 40/day without those particular HITs...and like you said, that goal was surely a lot easier to reach with those around, I think you made that amount one morning before the sun even came up a few days ago by doing them?

    Also, I am glad to hear you have been able to get the same amount out of mTurk with less effort as of late. That gives me some hope I'll be able to evolve a better strategy for consistent money than simple balls-to-the-wall output.

    Ugh I hate muscle memory.

    I will be clicking along then they will give me a test picture question and I will just hit it without thinking.

    it's just a mentality. nothing has changed about the way i find and do hits, and recently the number of available hits has decreased. it's just that i've spent enough days refreshing the forum and the mturk search and coming up with nothing to accept that some days will be shit, and i might as well not waste my time spending ten or more hours nickel and diming my way to $50 when at some point in the next few days, i'll make well over that amount with relative ease. but if i end up having a week of nothing but shit days, i may go back to grinding it out. after just under 3 months of this, i'm sure i haven't seen all the phases that mturk can go through in terms of earnings potential...

    I'm jealous of all you coffee-drinkers today. My 3rd shift job is over for the winter and I'm trying to get back to a semi-normal sleep pattern. So far the best I can get is a long nap around midnight, then I'm WIDE awake...eww.

    I joined mturk on Christmas ( accepted then). I spent the first few days doing many hits but now I just go on do like 2-3$ a day get off. I got 30$ so far, its going nice for me..

    However is Mturk always like this? At first the hits were great but now they suck, and some days theres barely any good ones i can do, i srsly doubt i can double my money in the next month at this rate.

    It's just the time of the year. I have a feeling Monday is going to be a very good day.

    The holidays have definitely played a big part in the slowness. I would expect for things to pick up a little starting next week. At least thats my hope.
