    Hello Everyone,

    Our research group has published a hit recently: Reading, imaging and investigation, take about 7-10 minutes. The payment is 0.25 dollar.

    After several days, no submission at all. We don't know where goes wrong of the hit that nobody answers it.

    Can you help us to figure out the problem? A million of thanks.

    You can search HKU social lab or Reading, imaging and investigation, take about 7-10 minutes in the Mturk hits pool.

    Look forward to your feedback.

    Thank you very much,
    HKU social lab

    The problem is simple, you are not paying enough money for the hit. Would you work for $1.50 an hour?

    It is because something is wrong with the survey. When I clicked on it, the page load in a foreign language. When I selected the translate button, the survey ended with a message saying my answers have been recorded.

    To expand on the underpaid thing: a lot of workers use a general ".10 a minute" rule when deciding to do HITs - in other words, we consider the pay and the expected time to complete the HIT, and determine if it meets that standard. Keep in mind that by that standard, an hour's worth of work at that rate would bring in less than the federal minimum wage. So .10 a minute is still seen as underpaid - it's just the lowest amount we're willing to work for.

    So .10 a minute is a mediocre HIT. You're offering .03 a minute. No one is going to want to work for that. If your HIT takes a minimum of seven minutes, you should be offering a minimum of .70 if you want it done.

    I wouldn't do this HIT even if it were the only thing available. Do you know why? It's a waste of time. Your pay is bad and you should feel bad. Stop expecting people to work for next to nothing!
