really hoping they accounted for the slow speed of the server in the 30 min estimate...
If you go under 70% they soft block you.
hmph a Movie Enquirer HIT I can't do! ruuuuude
So true. The book is almost always better than the movie. I will wait for DVD.
...at the end of this second task of 16 questions, page has been waiting for at least 4 minutes now...
Me too, then it timed out, so i wrote a message saying how slow it was and that i spent the 30 mins on it and submitted.
Its like about 70% or 80% I think. You just get a message about your accuracy being to low and go try something else.
It's not your PC.it's whatever program they are using. It made google crash.
Are you talking about the $3 survey from Decision Sciences?
500 Word Article: How to Unlock a Car Stereo's Anti-Theft Code
I've been below 70 (in fact like 40% once) and they just blocked me from doing anymore of that single hit...didn't block me from anything else.
at exact same spot, think it's going to be a bust
yeah. also for those who got locked out, first the survey opened a popup, so that could be a reason, but if you got to the first page with instructions, there was a logical reason you might have been stopped...
I got an error 30 minutes in, so I submitted the HIT with an explanation, hopefully it won't get rejected but it's worth the chance, don't want my time to go to waste like that.
I stopped awhile ago the baby was fussy i was just whining cause i didnt want to do them right now lol Im glad i didnt then! I hadnt seen Marks post :/
I'm on the third task and mine was stuck for 8 minutes, then finally moved forward another page. Their server is getting hammered by the continuous cycle of returns/re-accepts when people quit or get booted from it.
I ran though about 4000 of them this morning. Will do more later today.
i clicked the button again, it only got as far as 'connected to vlab.etc,etc' so their server is borked. i emailed them, hopefully they get back soon, i will probably just submit it with a note. i trust columbia not to screw people over like that... but i guess i don't trust them to run a server that can handle the number of connections or types of calculations they're running...
Mine croaked out as well, 30 mins in seems to be the lucky number.
Might have already been posted...
