    To be honest his .50 hits racked up pretty quickly. I never used the sites that people gave him because those went back to 2008 or so. I would just look up the school and find the current schedule and then search for the professor. Every school has a faculty page, you just have to know where to go. I ended up finally getting 10 schools that were really easy for me to find the 2013 information and went from there. The bad part was that when you got 6 or 7 different teachers, he should have given you enough space to put all of those URL's and a space to put the URL where you found the course schedule. I ended up filling my comment section with URL's and descriptions of what each URL was.

    The part that would get on my nerves is when he would give you a course number that did not exist. That is where his quality control screwed up. That more than likely came from his .30 hits. I think that if some of us worked with him, we could create a system that would allow us to earn the money and allow him to get correct information without letting the spammers in.

    I absolutely agree with you. He definitely needs some sort of quality-check before he approves them and puts the information through for another cycle of HITs. Eventually, I just started laughing when courses would come up listed as being from X state university and the link that was provided from which the previous person used as a source for the course # and title (which I didn't really even use, but I would at least look at it), was from an entirely different university.

    Because of the shoddy work of people like that, he should have given all the people who really did the work conscientiously some sort of bonus. Ah, well. What can you do, right?

    I'm glad you got to do it. Apparently a lot of people got disqualified out of it.

    Justneedto rant a little, I appologize in advance. Here it is:

    I realize prolonged exposure to porn can make some want to burn their eyes shut (been there!) but some of the things people are tagging as having happened in these tag image hits makes no sense. I openly admit I have seen enough porn to know what all the tags mean (yes, I am ashamed) and I don't hold it against people for not knowing what some things are (though it should be obvious usually). But for the love of all that is good in the world if you can not tell the difference between someone wearing lingerie and someone wearing a bra and panties, or better yet someone wearing a bikini perhaps you are not so well versed in female attire. If you think a woman with no hosiery on at all is the same as a woman wearing fishnets, no, it is not. Lastly, and this is the most confusing for me, body paint is body paint, similar to finger paint,but you know on a body (usually naked).

    Signed

    Sincerely,

    The person taking porn way too seriously:)

    I gave up on netmsi tagging because of stuff being so improperly tagged. Fisting is a very unmistakeable action, and when everyone is naked from the get-go, there is no formal wear.

    You guys were talking about UFC earlier. Was wondering if you were watching it on a free stream some where.

    The Matt Rubin find the course HITs are difficult. I don't bother with those. I return any Find the instructor HITs which I cannot find instead of stating the course doesn't exist or such. I try as many possible schools as I can and run the course through Google with the uni name. I don't want to come off as a dick, but if the work was limited to those from the US and a minimum of 5K HITs, I'm sure the quality of the info presented to us would be much better.

    For a school I'd use this and it would direct me to the index almost all the time.

    "USC class schedule" or "USC course schedule".

    Most of us don't speak Arabic...

    Oh wow....I really, really hope he sends out invites to those of us who did well for him. I did more than $140 worth of his hits and I did not turn in anything that wasn't 100% accurate, backwards and forwards. I checked and double checked before I submitted anything.

    i think the other thing with the rubins, and this has nothing to do with his quality control or scammers, is that from the comments i read here, even from people i assume to be honest, hard-working turkers, many people still weren't comfortable navigating school websites, course catalogs, class schedules and everything else required. not knowing that a university might have a separate engineering school that teaches these courses that aren't covered by the main college of arts and sciences catalog, understanding the difference between a course on linear algebra and a course that teaches math teachers how to teach linear algebra, knowing the difference between solid state physics and solid state electronics, etc. to do these hits really well, you had to first infer what the requester was going for, which was large courses that were for the most part mandatory in the majors for the departments they were offered in, and then understand each of these academic disciplines enough to make the right judgment call on whether or not a course fit the bill. for the absolute best job to be done, the usual metric of putting in an honest effort didn't necessarily cut it - you have to be familiar with academics, especially in the subjects he was requesting information for, at least to a moderate degree. it was obvious from the incorrect responses that made it to the professor batch that there were people who did try to find the best information but just didn't have the experience or knowledge to make the best decisions about courses from the earlier batches. there really isn't any blame to be assigned for this, it's what happens when you make requests that probably require a little more specialized knowledge than the usual 'here's a name, find an email' type of hits, but i'd say the quality issues were somewhat lacking across the board, not just where scammers were concerned.

    I had a little mini rant posted two days ago when people where tagging them. I knew it was coming and attempted to educate people on what a scrotum is and the difference between a creampie and just unloading on someone is.

    I think maybe its one of a few things going wrong.

    people think they have to pick at least one tag per page,

    they think if they put in at least 10 tags it will get a pass,

    they have no idea what they are looking at,

    they are just clicking random crap because they aren’t getting rejected.

    I would let someone slide on the fine line between sexy underwear and lingerie, its almost the same thing. But when you’re tasked with finding a thumbnail of someone fisting someone and after a full 2 min of having to look at each one twice you realize the person who tagged messed up, and that happens with half the tags when there is at least 10 tags per video… well that just pisses you off.

    I agree with you 100% ... I gave up when I had to report a total of 24 of the tags as being wrong on one scene

    Screw NetMSI. The pay is alright if you're fast, the don't reject unless you don't do it right, but their HITs irritate me. Every time I decide to do them I always get stuck with gay porn. It's revolting.



    My issue with the find the instructors were some course prefixes done by other turkers ere messed up. No, Physics is not taught in a language arts major; ENG 105 is not Quantum Mechanics II. Or worse yet, the total fuckup of prefixes. CHEM becomes CHEX. WTF?
