    Heads up:

    Between 2 and 2:30 AM PST, about 4-5 days in a row, Pinterests have been dropping. some days I'll nab 5 and can do 5, and yesterday, I nabbed 9, and was only able to do one... before the 20 minute timer expired. You'll get false caps, and sometimes actual caps, with these. If you wait long enough, they sometimes free back up, although... it's not consistent. Anyhoo, here's the info I have on them, enjoy.

    Just caught this on panda. Did the same HIT on 1/26/17, still unpaid. HIT description says, "If you have participated in a similar HIT before, there is no problem with you taking this HIT as well. " I did drop a note to the requester, just in case.

    I got bored with waiting for Mozilla to approve the ext, so I added commas to the HIT totals for the upcoming chrome update.

    Dermot Lynott will give you an exclusionary qual very quickly after you do it. A panda will say not qualified if you can't do it. They're very good about telling you if you can do it...or not. The only time I didn't see that ''not qualified'' was when the same HIT I had just completed came up again. And it did appear shortly. I keep a list of the last 3 characters of those Dermot HITs I've already done. In case I'm unsure if a recent posted HIT is new for me or not....but then I'm odd like that. I like to know what I'm doing--at least some of the time...

    Thank you! I noticed the directions said they record your Amazon ID while you're taking the HIT so... I also noticed the content was different than the last HIT on 1/26/17, even though the structure was the same.

    Thank you again for responding :rolleyes:

    Dermot apparently posts his HITs in little groups--you're only able to do one form each. I think this because of comments about words that were different from the words I got in the same HIT. He usually posts 3 per day--when he's posting. Lately they'll be the same for 2 or more days. So I get 2 one day and then have to wait for the next group........Also I'm up at this unholy hour 'cause panda screamed out that a Dermot HIT was up. This is the same HIT (URL ending 8NR) that has been repeatedly posted in the very early hours of the morning for weeks. Finally got the sucker.

    Now I added commas to Submitted, Approved, Rejected, Pending under the Your HIT Status section.

    If I don't like marzipan does that mean I can go back to sleep until it isn't Monday anymore?

    Just did this HIT, no history requester, timer 15 minutes. They want 6 pictures, as well as 2 videos of your feet in dark socks, on a piece of standard paper.

    Anyone else do this? I've written the requester with the "success code" after completion, as the HIT expired.
