    Rob,

    Thanks for that info. I think I've been in such a panic to try to make money since I lost my job that I'm not thinking as logically or clearly as I should. I'm just grabbing whatever I can, especially if over $1. However, I have just recently started doing a little transcription and writing, though not much. I never thought about having multiple windows open to search. It's the batch hits that I'm missing out on because I never seem to discover them in time and am not yet familiar with the requesters. And as for $6/hour, I'm nowhere close to that, probably because I waste more time searching than hitting.

    But thanks to all of you who responded to my desperate plea for guidance. I am extremely grateful!!!

    P.S. Sorry I'm not quicker listing good hits here. Every time I tried today I was signed out when I came back here and by then the hit was gone. I'll get the hang of it soon, I hope.

    Thought I was the only one with slow payments! Sittin' here waiting for it to creep over $10 so I can withdraw.

    Sittin' on the dock of the bay... watching the tide roll away...

    If any of you did Part A, I got a follow-up email for "PART B of "Psychology Experiment 1 on Personal Beliefs" (15 min.)" Woo!

    Hiya!

    Glad to have you...

    Be sure to select the REMEMBER ME box when you sign in and you won't get logged out any more...

    As far as $6.oo per hour - that is $6.00 per hour of actually working on HITs... Meaning I try not to do any work that doesn't pay at least $6.oo per hour or $0.10 per minute of time on the HIT.

    Knowing the different requesters isn't as important as knowing if you can trust them. Be sure you have the Turkopticon script running! This is vital and will ensure that you are doing HITs from requesters that are known to pay and don't have issues. You can find a link to this script and most others we generally all use right here in the mTurk Forum Resources section.

    As your HIT number goes up you will be able to do more HITs. Be sure you are asking for qualifications for HITs that look good to you but you are not qualified for. You won't get the qualification if you don't ask or take the test.

    And always feel free to PM me and most of the other regulars if you need help with anything in particular.

    I have a question for the Mturk gurus out there. I've been attempting some of the Crowdsource URL rankings, because they are easy and stuff. However, I run into a problem when the little green URL I'm supposed to copy/paste is incomplete.

    www.ey.com › ... › About us › Our global approach › Our leaders

    For an example. What do I do in a situation like this? I'd like to hammer some out but fear of rejection prevents it :). Thanks!

    They never reject for honest effort!

    I always get rid of the offending part of the link... Never had a problem.

    In that example I would have put www.ey.com.

    The same holds true for their KeyWord Search HITs.

    The slow way would be to visit the website and copy it from your address bar at the top. If you use Don't track me Google you can just right click the search result and copy the url without Google's ugly tracking URL getting in the way.

    Here's an explanation I wrote over on the script's discussion board: http://userscripts.org/topics/118997#posts-469657

    I know it SAYS not to go to the link and copy the full URL.... but I do it anyway, and not once have I been rejected. Make sure though that the URL is still valid, even if it is a little long

    sasquatch,

    I think I'm starting to get the picture. I have been making a list of "batch" requesters because as long as I've been at this, my numbers are still a little on the low side and I need to get them up over 5,000 quickly. Hopefully I can get qualified for medcrowd if they offer it soon. I've been making about $10-12 on weekdays and wondering what I'm doing wrong because I'm just not getting as much as I need. Fortunately, y'all have been great and I've learned lots in just a few days here. So, time to readjust my attack plan and make this work!

    THANK YOU FOR THE HELP! I'm hanging on to the lifeline with both hands!!

    Netmsi offices close at 5pm eastern time. So unless they put some up to auto load I doubt any will be up tonight.
