Anyone got a time on this yet?
Can probably be done in 10 minutes. I took breaks but it was just rating the 8 applicants, one question, and then demographics page.
hi, hit return on a zoltar and waited 60 minutes and still can`t work on his hits. used to be 30 minutes "ban" how much is it now?
Should be the length of the timer on the hit you returned. 60 minutes for zoltar I think.
Now I'm not sure if trying one and getting an error resets that 60 minutes or not... I didn't think so, but I did something with some google HIT the other night that had me locked out forever. So either the something had a huge timer or me constantly testing was making it worse. Dunno.
Did you try a Brian Z? Those seem like google hits and have a 5-6 hour timer.
It took me about 15 minutes
Ah! Thank you, that was it then.
I tried one and tossed it. Never even thought it might be google and never noticed the timer. If I'd known I'd have finished out the one HIT.
3 minutes (10 minute timer)

I still have no idea how these google lock outs work.
Late this morning there was a batch that I was working on. I had to run out and figured I'd be back in time to finish the 3 left in my queue. Well I didn't get back in time and they expired.
Now with this latest batch which is hours (5-7hrs, can't remember) I'm getting the error message even after letting them sit in my queue for an hour and 20 minutes.
I thought that if they expired that would be it, I wouldn't be locked out since the timer ran it's course.
Can someone explain how it works?
Thanks in advance.
Expired and returned both have the same effect. You get locked out. Once a google HIT has been loaded (i.e. not just panda'd and in your queue, actually loaded with the frame contents filled in) it is "active", even if you close then close the tab. If the active HIT is returned or expires you get locked out for as long as the timer on the HIT was. Also once a HIT becomes "active" you can't open any other google HITs until that one is completed, which is why you sometimes have to hunt through your queue to find the one that works -- the active one.
There is one case where you can return a google HIT... say you have 10 Zoltars in your queue. One is loaded and thus "active". You decide you don't have time to do them, you can return the nine non-active ones safely. Then complete the one that is loaded and active. This is handy if you grab too many HITs and can't finish them all before they expire.
Thanks for clarifying this. I for some reason thought expired Hits wouldn't be affected.
So basically with these Brian Z Hits the timer is 5 hours, so then I'll be locked out for 5 hours after the last expired Hit?
I think I will have enough time after they are active to finish the one's that are currently in my queue.
