    Me and someone else. I only got the qual an hour ago when I email the requester and said, "Gimme that qual." Got a full queue real quick before they ran out, since they have an hour timer. So, still got 20 more.:)

    So you only got around 100 of them? The other guy got at least 400, and he started a hour or 2 after I did. I did 550 before I went to grab dinner. They're all approved now, btw. 170 dollars today in just that single batch. Am I glad you told me about batches. Ha.

    Edit: Emailing the requester for qualifications to do batches, huh!? Ahhh...I should've done that when those 2 other guys were doing that batch that they posted on here a few days ago.

    Yeah, I got at least 100. Yeah, this batch was silly. The qualification should have gone out to more people. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy I got it but, literally only a few getting the qual isn't something that normally happens. Think of it as a New Year's present because it was a fluke.:)
    That said, you sure you don't want to go back to $.70 HITs? :p Sure you don't want to look down your nose at those $.30 HITs? I'll gladly do them all.:D

    Glad you got to see what can actually happen with a great batch. It's so dead right now, that's the only reason it worked out like that. Normally that guy would have gotten hundreds of messages requesting the qual. Lucky nobody is on atm.

    They usually don't work that way. You can ask but, you're usually wasting your time. But, this was a new requester, with a new qual, with a batch that was taking way too long, and I got a perfect score on the qual HIT. If it was daytime, 100 people would have messaged. Then we all would have got it. If he wasn't a new requester, we all would have gotten it when that qual HIT approved, like you did. And, if it wasn't this slow, I wouldn't have bothered either. I mean, shit, I really didn't bother until the end I was like, "Well, I got a perfect score, why's this kid making all my monies?" But, normally an email asking for a qual is just as useful as emailing a dead email address. As I said, it was a fluke all around.
