    If you have to be dumb to make a mistake, then everybody's dumb.

    ORRRRR you're not dumb. :)

    oh, the cereal bar HIT. yeah it's a bit frustrating. I did it last week. They posted on that other forum so they're aware people are having issues. It will probably be worth getting the qual as they are planning on their hits being worth $15/hr, even as far as giving bonuses to make it that high if things end up taking a long time

    So I was kinda desperate/bored on Christmas and did a few Benjamin Tan HITs. Stupid me. I got emails right away about two of them being rejected. So I emailed him and told him I legit couldn't see what he said I did wrong, and that I guess I wasn't suited for the HITs. And asked if he'd consider letting me do them over and/or reversing my rejections. They're only 10 cent HITs.

    He just emailed me back asking which HITs and that he'd reverse them for me.

    Cool. I was just going to eat them because I'm sure what he said was true, but the colors are so similar I just really can't make out the difference.

    Colors can be a pain because there's no real standard for monitors, that's why everyone who does serious graphics works has those little Pantone booklets so they can adjust their screen colors to at least get close.

    Yeah it sounds like everyone was worried about not completing it and/or had to do things more than once (trying to remember what it said on the preview page so I don't give any details I shouldn't).
