    I haven't seen them in a while, but the PPC sentiment HITs (can't remember the exact requester name) take like 5 seconds apiece and approve almost instantly. All you do is read short social media posts and rate how positive, negative, engaging, etc (whatever the selected emotion is for that HIT) it is. Most of the time it's "not at all".

    Welcome to the forum! Crowdsource also has a bunch of keyword searches, url rankings, search terms and such. You are limited in the number you can do each day, but they pay a bit better than oscar and approve pretty quickly.

    14 more oscars and I will hit 2500 submitted! When I see some of your numbers, I want to cry, wondering if I'll EVER reach 10,000+...but then again, you can't get there if you don't try, right?

    Oh, any word on when Coman is going to post today? My rear-end is complaining...as I wait for his awesome hits.:eek:

    Check out Jon Brelig too. He's kinda slow approving but I've never been rejected.

    Thanks everybody for the welcome and advice! I checked out the RedWood hits and they don't seem to like me. They keep telling me "No jobs could be found for this HIT!". I'm checking out tagasarius and going to add Venue Quality to my TurkAlert. Heck, let them hard ban me all they want if I am able to get 800 hits in first. :roll:

    yeah, the entire directory.leeuniversity.edu subdomain is down... winter break is not the best time to be looking stuff up, lots of IT depts are probably using this as their only chance to work on the system while no one really needs it (except us)...

    Be careful though. Too many hard blocks and amazon will shut down your account.

    Has to be a mistake since no one can get over 100% submission rate.

    Ah - Thanks for the advice. Of course I was just kidding in my prior post. I hope to never be blocked.

    Which is why I think banning him because it offended someone that it didn't even involve is a little overboard. IMO.

    My psyche has been irreparably damaged by these Rubin instructor HITs, and, yet, I continue to do them. I clearly have issues.

    I cannot get those Redwood hits to load for me. Tried a couple of browers. Emailed them, so hopefully they've got some insight into why this happening.

    Accidentally slept until 5pm and I'm sure I've missed a lot today already. Is there anything still around?

    I'll never complain about my university again after doing all these Rubin HITs. So many schools have awful websites and really poor course offerings.

    Anyone else annoyed with Berkeley College's banner that slides from side to side on the screen?

    I almost didn't recognize Andy with his new avatar. I thought it was some other Andy.

    Just got back from store, did Coman put up some more HITS while I was gone? I heard he was going to put up some more later on...
