    I messaged the requester that rejected my HIT, and went back and forth with him for a while. His rejection reason actually makes sense, but the catch is that he sent me the Q&A’s submitted, and they’re not the answers I entered (or the same questions for that matter). I’m not sure if there was a database/replication error or what, but that really sucks for me.
    He won’t reverse the rejection (at least I’m 99% sure he won’t), but he sent me a bonus for the HIT amount. I can't decide how to feel about the whole situation

    The important thing is that I can see it, because I'm the only person that matters.

    A picture's worth a thousand words. And yes, I've heard of people being blamed for sorry work they didn't do--somebody else did and the innocent person was blamed. Requesters never want to believe(admit) this happens. Seems computers aren't infoulable. Who knew?

    Sometimes I love the writers of these Cornell HITs:

    Follow traffic to the light and go right. Go straight through the 3-way you encounter and go right at the next light. At the next light, go right again. To your right will be a white building with graffiti on plywood over the doors, and on the left, green construction fencing with k-walls in front of it.

    Rotate right for Lucifer, Lord of Darkness and Destruction, a red demon with horns on a white sticker half peeled away on the pillar of brown bricks. Face him; Lo! With the Lord Upon Thine Side, He Shall Not Harm Thee. But, also, Touchdown is sitting on his face.

    The only screenshot I have is of my post-test score being 12/15, and his data showed 13/15 (learning Latin names of species). It wasn't really a HIT you could take active screenshots of easily, but I really wish I would have tried. But honestly, I don't think it would have changed his mind even if I did.

    Oh ugh. I really hope it's just a random weird cluster of cells that is absolutely and positively not at all remotely cancer or any of its ugly relatives.
