    Just don't wait too long. These hits are very time consuming. The last one had you clicking through a transcript 1 word at a time. By the end I was very ready to be done. But man was it worth it.

    Jeremy I. Skipper posted "Even More Predictability of Words on Television" for $9.

    I did the last one for $8, but this one doesn't say not to do it if you've already done his HIT before. Does anyone know if I can repeat this one? It appears to be the same transcript as my first HIT of his. I don't want to spend another hour on this tedious HIT if I won't get paid.

    EDIT - I went ahead and started it. It is the same episode from before, but it's the 2nd half of the episode, so I'm confident I'll get paid for it :) I've already gotten paid for the first one, so this should make today one of my best days turking yet!

    Haha, did that one yesterday, still hasn't approved though (I guess it's on 7-day auto-approve or something). It definitely is tedious, but can be done in as little as 45 minutes if you're quick enough. Worth it for the money.

    They make me read the whole thing before beginning to do the task...

    Don't bother! Just skip ahead to the actual task. There's no need to read the whole thing beforehand.

    Thanks! Any specific tactics you used?
    Alot of moving the mouse, and TAB button is not efficient here.

    No there's not much you can do to make it too much faster aside from getting into a good rhythm and moving that mouse as fast as you can!

    I had to answer a couple of questions. I guess the pay will come as a bonus.

    Shoot them an email! I asked and they told me that there *should* have been a confirmation code, but that there was a problem with it. They told me to just go to the Part 2 HIT (https://www.mturk.com/mturk/preview?groupId=2PBXCNHMVHVKZ4NJRJT7AJ7ELV0139) and submit it with my mTurk ID and to leave a note saying that the discussion got cancelled.

    So if you didn't get a code either be sure to email them about it.

    Finished the $9.00 HIT.
    It can be completed in 30 min if working briskly.

    Agreed. I just finished and it took me 54 minutes, but I had my wisdom teeth removed a couple days ago so the vicodin slowed me down a little bit :)

    In the cell task, is the dark part inside the cell considered part of the cell? And should the dot be inside the same cell?
