    i keep expecting Georgia to make a push (and they still might),
    but so far Texas' defense is stepping up

    I'm hearing rumors that North Korea purchased this forum.

    Restaurant reviews...:p

    "so it has this really intense yellow flavour."
    Yellow is my favourite flavour.

    "a guy called Dennis who made us feel derogatory to him."
    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    There's no fixed number. I typically base it off of how helpful our clients are finding the comments in your videos. If you want me to consider "promoting" you, use mturk.com to request the qualification the next time you see a HIT that requires a 3 or 4. (Or send me your workerId in a private message.)

    Happy New Year everyone! The end of my 2018 was completely crazy. I'm hoping to hop back into MTurk next week. I miss hanging out with you all while turking away! I hope you have all been well. I just glanced at MTurk today and apparently I'm missing a lot of new Quals or something because it's telling me I don't qualify for much!

    It's just very dead. Biggest "day off" holiday of the year. No requesters posting. Should pick up tomorrow, if life goes like last year. Though it is much slower than last New Year's day.:)

    This guy's bio is pretty amazing as well.

    Amazon resets their day at 12 PST.(PDT?)
    2 hours and 36 minutes from now.

    I thought the transfers were still 24 hours apart regardless of the new day... no?

    I'm pretty sure they reset at day change and aren't bound to a rolling 24-hour limit.
    I could be wrong, though.
    If anyone wants to throw me some test money, I'll transfer and let you know ;)

    Not that I'm aware of. First off, are we talking about Payments or transferring out of Mturk?

    If it's Mturk, I can transfer out at 2:59a(11:59p amazon time) and then again at 3:00a EST(12:00a Amazon time), after the day change.
    If it's payments, obviously I can withdraw multiple times per day, with no 24 hour wait.

    So, neither is...
    Well said.:)

    Oh man... I thought transferring was a rolling 24hrs. Like the 12-hour log out :ROFL:
    I just assumed since it was worded in a "once every 24 hours" way and not "once-a-day".

    I'm also wondering why yesterday's transfer has today's date, and the one I did just now (only just after 10 their time!) has tomorrow's... o.0
