Morning.:coffee4:

Just want to repost this in case J @Jason Garrett misses it on the last thread. I went to all the time.:p
I keep thinking that I should just do .01 batches to get to the larger numbers. But than I do 1 of them and spend more time than a .20 HIT.
Depends on the penny batches. Not all are equal...

That's just an example of the past few hours. Daytime, non-Sunday, non-post-Holiday weekend, I'm sure there's tons more.

You are absolutely right that a lot of them are rubbish. Then there are ones that are super quick. Also, getting those numbers(# HITs approved) up there will hopefully make you more likely to be able to participate in better batches. But, with lower numbers, your options are limited. Not that they're any better for anyone with better numbers, at the moment, but # of HITs approved is probably the second most used qualification, after location. It's like if you already know how to do a job but, have no experience. They want to see practical time "behind the wheel". Think of it like a lightly paid internship. I'm not saying do stuff that's severely underpaid but, we've all done things that we could consider a sacrifice of money for experience(qualifications, numbers, scripting, learning). If you think of turking more like a job that can grow with you, the numbers feel like they have more significance. If you think of it like a job that you just learn and then know, without the growth and practice(which you get from batches), a lot of people find that their income potential plateaus as well.

These also take less than 5 seconds...

Got it thank you, I have been going at anything I can do in a reasonable amount of time. Past week I got into some good batches and got to nearly 700 HITs done. Just need them all to be accepted now, there are about a 100 that people have been slow to accept.

Do at your own risk. I can't endorse.
Your work has not been accepted. The pedestrian is not visible enough.
Rather than not bonus for the unaccepted instruction, requester decided to reject. Pedestrian was clearly visible, in the middle of the road, with a bounding box that matched their footprint. Sadly, overly subjective on a HIT that shouldn't be. If you do do them, don't assume that the data that you're being given(bounding boxes) is accurate. It's hard to give quality data when the step before you was not done correctly(by the algo) and the definition of acceptable is subjective. Too bad. Thought it may have been good to go HAM. Ymmv but, I guarantee that the 2 HITs that I completed were done per instructions, with special care taken on the second(which was rejected) as I had received feedback prior to it's completion.
Do at your own risk!

EDIT
It's my opinion that a HIT like this should almost always pay the $.02. Otherwise, it's not worth the risk, regardless of the bonus promised.

Other than hiphop, folk, and christian, are there more quals?
Little samples of songs to rate. I think there is a qualification to it. But it's just like if you like jazz say yes type. Can't say I know how to find the qualification right now.

I can eat today! (IF :)
yay!

I'm going all in on a weird gywneth paltrow diet this week since my husband will be away all week :ROFL: actually she's toned it down from previous years - much more accessible and normal ingredients this year.

PS I don't think 'detoxing' is a thing but it's nice to have everything healthy and planned for the week including shopping list!
