    You're right - I remember it being a limited batch, subjective, and I wanted to do a bunch more. Glad Elsbeth capped us! One time I'm glad for a cap.

    I have no experience with them in particular, but overall it has seemed to be a mixed bag. I once accidentally swapped completion codes between two hits, realized it and sent a message detailing my error including the appropriate code. Never heard back on those two, I learned not to do that again.

    hey all

    about to take my $5 P.E. and go to bed but decided to see what was up. I had one Elsbeth hit that only just approved, where all the others were approved almost immediately. I'm assuming they had some kind of quality control questions mixed in and we 'failed' one and it got flagged for them to directly view and then they decided approve or reject. That's just me assuming a lot, could be completely wrong. Sorry yours got rejected

    this was the template rejection text on Mturk:

    "We appreciate your work, but unfortunately, your answers to this HIT deviated significantly from known answers or you did not correctly follow the instructions, which we informed you may lead to ending of your participation. We recognize that stress is a subjective concept, but some of the data in this study has been previously agreed to be straightforward according to the instructions. If you feel this message is in error, you may contact us at columbiastressstudy@gmail.com."

    I may just eat the rejection, and write a nice, detailed, SOME WORK REJECTED T.O. for them, and call it good.

    I worked at my day job from 10 to almost 7, just hit a couple surveys tonight. Sometimes my dude Foxtrot posts a bunch of grammar hits around 10-11pm, but not tonight I guess.

    If you can manage to snag one of the Campanelli Luca hits that have popped up in the past hour or so the bonus seems to be pretty good. Up to 11.20$ on top of the 12$ base.

    Gonna do some Ben Petersons just for numbers and then go to bed. Yesterday I saw my friend who owns a computer repair shop and I ended up buying two of these suckers to start being a serious turker:

    i'm going to be going from a 15 inch laptop to these two, not sure exactly how I'll set it up but current plan is hit forker/panda crazy on one monitor, doing hits on the laptop monitor, and having other crowdwork stuff open to catch like usersurveys, prolific, and appen (which i just got approved for) plus mturkcrowrd etc

    15.6" laptop to approximately 63" lol. i might have been a little overzealous but i got them both for about $130, they are $138 each at walmart
