    I had no luck with the extension as well. I tried clearing out my cookies, but it didn't help.

    How come I never get an email back from a requester stating I have received their qualification. How long does it take?

    wtf you get a captcha after each one :/ when i saw everyone talking about it, i thought it was like mturk and you get them after a certain amount. Not after every one!!! ugh

    most hits with specific quals like ZZZ001 must be 50 or whatever aren't actually requestable, amazon just puts that link there if there is no specific qual test and it's not automatic based on approval count or location.

    Hope this hasn't been addressed already but I tried searching it on here and didnt find it.

    On the Matt Rubin hits about finding an official course name and number, I tried to do 2 different ones and I couldn't find the courses he listed. He didnt mention what term so I just picked the most recent. Any tips?

    if you want to continue with those and can't deal with the proxy stuff, you can always look up the urls on a different site. whois.godaddy.com is one, off the top of my head, but basically every company that sells domains has a public service to check if they're available for purchase. and each one will also either impose a hard limit on queries or require captcha. too many bots stealing bandwidth running billions of queries a second trying to find and grab expired domains.

    it's necessary, i think, to try both terms. sometimes calculus I is only offered in the fall, and calculus II is only offered in the spring, and the same goes for many other sequences, and one-off courses might only be offered one of the two terms. if a course is offered in both terms, the name and number should still be the same if it's the same course. calc I should be MTH 123 or whatever, no matter which semester it's taken.

    The course probably wont match the course name that University uses. If he already knew every course name he wouldn't need us. You need to find the course that would match to the generic one he gives. If he gives Introduction to Probability and Statistics, The Uni course may be Fundamentals of Statistics and Probability ...ect

    and also, some courses just aren't available. very few universities have courses on 'web application programming' or 'computer vision', for example. i've been returning those, as there are no clear instructions on what to do if they can't be found, and i also don't want them popping up again as i go through the hits...

    ouch 5 rejects on penny hits... I'd email her and see what the deal is with that. I have had mass rejects overturned twice before so hopefully all goes well

    thanks. godaddy will work for now. then when i get captchas on that one i'll just go back to the one he uses. the captchas are only 4 letters/numbers so it's not too big of a deal. it just messes up the "groove" you had before that though
