Every time someone posts a HIT in here and I click on it...

Yeah, by the time they're posted here, they've been up for at least a few seconds. Long enough for anything good to be long gone. Expect to have to PandA most everything you try to pick up in the forum. Lots of people even post after they've done the HIT(making it less likely that it will be up but giving you the benefit of a completion time). I post before I do them so there's a bit more chance, if you're quick but, still longer than if you grab it from "Finder".


EDIT Also, since you're not a contributor, you have to refresh the forum to see new posts. Contributors get 'auto-update' https://www.mturkcrowd.com/donate/ which keeps the forum current, for them. So they'll see it before you refresh most times.:(

I need to research Panda and a few others I keep hearing about. I feel I'm at an extreme disadvantage, by refreshing every 10 seconds...for all eternity.

PandA is just an abbreviation of Preview and Accept.
Used here, it means any extension or script that will repeatedly try and preview and accept(really just accept from the preview page) a HIT that you specify.

It can be done lots of different ways. I use MTurk Suite(MTS). https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mturk-suite/iglbakfobmoijpbigmlfklckogbefnlf
I think you're referring to Panda Crazy(PC), which is another solution that can do it. https://www.mturkcrowd.com/threads/panda-crazy-script-for-pandas.1381/

So, when someone says, "PandA it," they just mean, "set something up to keep trying to grab it."

And, "got a PandA?" just means, "do you have a link?(for the HIT)":)

I see. I thought you were referring to Panda Crazy:

Which you just mentioned. I'm blind.

Is MLDataLabeler good for increasing number of hits?
They seem to be. They have multiple batches. Some are better than others. Depends on which "click" for you. As a requester, I've seen no big issues. Ymmv.:)

Semi-Pro Tip from your Uncle Jer: Don't always believe TO.

Title: Reading Speed Test with bonus | Accept
Requester: PUKProjectNR [A1MRJ9QM66DPMY] Contact
TV: No Reviews
TO: [Pay=1.00] [Fast=1.00] [Comm=1.00] [Fair=1.00] [Reviews=1] [ToS=0]
TO2: No Reviews
Reward: 0.25
Duration: 20:00
Available: 1
Description: This HIT is made to record reading times of sentences.
Qualifications: Location In CA, IN, US

This took 19 minutes. It had no TO when I started. 14 minutes in, I'm like, "what am I doing?" I got it submitted at 19:46. I was like, "why did I just do that for 20 minutes?! FOR A QUARTER!!"

2 minutes after I subbed mine, that TO showed up. I was sorta ready for a rejection after that. But, I knew I had done the HIT correctly, which was my saving grace. 10 minutes later, mine approved.:D
Then...


You've received a bonus from PUKProjectNR for work related to 3K8CQCU3KFY9FHWOVI95D3WBFUXNWE.
The value of your bonus is: $6.50 USD

The Requester included this note:
You get this bonus because you successfully read: 26 texts.


Woot! Scared money don't make money. Good start to the morning! :greathit:
YMMV.
Good morning ladies and gents.
Mernin'.
