    What is this?

    I am Tjbot! I'm a solution devised by the genious mods to prevent there ever being a day that hit threads aren't posted! The whole point of my existence is to post a hit thread if one doesn't exist by 12:08am PST. If you see this post, assume that this one is the main post. One of the mod team will clean up existing posts and consolidate once they wake up and get online. As my name indicates, I am a bot. I don't post, nor do I respond to PM's. If you have any problems, send an email to tjbot@ns4t.net or PM Tjololo, he can help out with any issues.
    Want to make tomorrow's thread? Just go for it!

    Mine approved. They won't reject as long as you put in effort into it. Approves next day.

    This isn't about a hit that is currently posted, but xlab research has been dropping batches recently that require writing, but pay well.

    I have a story. They did a small, I assume qual batch for 50 cents that approved in one day. The others, the ones I know (started at 70 cents, went up to .77) approved in two. I can do them well in a minute or two and it has a two hour timer.

    Fine and fair.

    I had an unexpected expense this past week and wanted to make money via mturk to avoid dipping into savings. I had a hard direct goal and I reached out to the requester about their approval time, as I needed things to be approved on Thursday and hit my account on Friday. And their response was "If you need me to change it, let me know!" I wasn't asking them to change anything, I was merely asking so I could reconcile what I would need to do in working on mturk and figuring out if the work I had already submitted with them would approve in time. Two days approval is awesome, I was not complaining. It was the most lovely exchange.

    They dropped a new batch and switched it, retroactively and forward, to one day approval because I needed to meet my goal by Thursday. It applies to all.

    Goal was met, savings saved.

    That's incredible and I am thankful and these are the requesters we should be grateful for. One day can make or break a worker, for whatever reason. And you better know I put all my energy and focus on those HITs yesterday and my work was good. I also made $130ish, with breaks...cooking, nails, watching a show, etc.

    (ETA: My work is always good, 42 rejections since I don't even even remember when, and half of those are from my first week. I take things seriously).
