    This just to update everyone, we have extended the expiry of our Hits by a day. So, happy Turking.

    Also, we have fixed few issues as well as some of the recommendations, as per your feedbacks.

    We are eagerly waiting for your participation and also feedback to improve us.

    Thanks,

    Turkers

    We are ready with a new set of Mechanical Turk HIT groups (332 Hits) that we have published and in a following pattern you can search:

    WebomateS
    EC-178
    testing
    qa

    In last run, some of the turkers faced issue in logging-in due to the gateway authentication and that issue has been addressed

    We have also added a FAQ link, so that if you need help it's a click away. Currently the support is e-mail response. The email address is support@webomates.com

    We will continue to improve and evolve our guidelines as we move forward. Thank you for your input and most especially thank you for being a Webomates turker!

    The above mentioned time is the maximum time for a hit . There are workers who did ~73 hits in less than two hours as well.

    Dear Webomates Turkers

    We posted new set of HITs for Mac OSX-10/ Safari 10 and Windows 10 /Edge 38/HTML 14

    Did you get a chance to look at them

    Take 50 HITS in 2 hours and get 50% bonus. That is if your earnings were $1 you would make $1.5!.

    Do write us on support@webomates.com for feedback and queries.

    Hey,

    I'm about to get started on your HITS for the first time....as far as getting a rejection, are you basing "correct" answers on what the majority says?

    Thanks!
    Amanda

    Hi Amanda,

    Thanks for asking

    We are doing two level auditing, one which system does automatically and are on the basis of correct answers of the majority and then, there is a manual auditing getting done

    We are very keen to create a community of qualified turkers who will not only do the hits that we publish but will actually look forward to and seek out our hits, since you are new therefore, requesting you to please go for below for once

    1. WebomateS bonus program. If you achieve 50 hits in 2 hours at high quality you will be eligible for a 50% bonus on all 50 hits. That is if your earnings were $1 you would make $1.5!
    2. All hits will be approved/paid or rejected in under 24 hours
    3. We have added a support link everywhere we can so that if you need help it's a click away. Currently the support is e-mail response. The email address is support@webomates.com
    4. All hits will have webomates in the subject so you know it's us. Hits will have the words small medium and large to show that some hits are lower time and thus lower value along with the Platform (Win/IE) information

    General issues that we have encountered in the past and want the Turker's to avoid while submitting the answer's
    • Issues identified in Screenshot attached with Hit
    1. If steps is to validate mouse over, please capture the page screenshot having mouse hover shown for the specific element
    2. Screen shot of the wrong page​
    • Other Common issues:
    1. Wrong Answers
    2. Spelling mistake
    3. Extra space in answer​

    We will be publishing hit on weekly basis. We look forward for your continue participation and increase in quality and so accuracy score.

    WebomateS has recently joined as an MTurk requester, publishing small batches of HITs weekly. In recent weeks there has been trouble accessing the application under test. We extend our sincere apologies to the MTurk worker community for the inconvenience. We appreciate your alerting us to the issues.
    We investigated your reported technical difficulties and combed through our system logs. Indeed there are technical issues in the application access area in our domain. The fixes in our system are underway.
    In the meantime, we are initiating a new daily series of HITs. These will present no application access issues. The HITs test a public consumer-facing web site. There will be one HIT per day with 100 assignments with an expiry of 4 hours.
    When the HITs are ready, we will notify you via MTurk email if you have submitted HITs to us prior and will post the links in this forum.
    We appreciate your participation!
    (Please reach out to us for any feedback here or at support@webomates.com)

    Thank you,
