Thanks for the advice everyone! As for focusing on the payout, I'm not too worried about that at the moment. More interested in getting my numbers up safely so those unavoidable rejections won't hurt too bad. I actually do economy lab experiments very similar to these at my university for a bit better pay. I have to say i'm surprised with how similar some of the tasks are but I guess a lot of the requests are from universities after all.
I know people often say not to do the super low paying hits because it is a waste of time, but I got my first 1000 doing mostly $0.03 and below batch hits. Didn't take too long. After that, I focused on money a bit with surveys. I average $20-$25/ weekday now. Pulled $27 yesterday. Maybe I'll start doing low batches on the weekend for another boost. The key seems to be getting that first 1000 as quickly as possible. The fact that you found this site is a good start.

Did Zoltars post more then once yesterday? If those post regularly they are safe hits and a good way to get your numbers up Bark.

I noticed after I got to 3000 hits approved the amount of dollar and above survey hits that I could get with panda crazy went up noticeably. I can average around 30 dollars on a weekday and 15 on a weekend day.

I could be mistaken, as I haven't had a Z panda on in a couple of days...but I haven't seem them post now since the beginning of the month. They come and go though.

There's also a girl that just started posting in here recently (can't remember her name) that said she did penny hits and I think she said she was over 3000 hits approved and 1 rejection with in her first 2 weeks. Which is amazeballs!!! lol

Is it in your activity for the day when you click on today in the dashboard? If it's just missing your your PE generated by MTS, try opening Hit Tracker and clicking sync. This happens to me occasionally, where a HIT seems to get lost in the mix...but it's all good after syncing MTS.

Its much harder to make money just starting out now, right? I just found a tweet of mine from when I started and within the first 4 days I made 120 bucks. This was in the Summer, too. Almost all surveys, if I remember right. That still possible for noobies?

I'm not a fan of people reposting their HITs. i refresh and see things change just to realize its the same p9r an 20bn i've been staring at for the last few hours.

On the bright side, if all of my hits get approved i'm up ~$15 in 5 ish hours of writing a paper and checking turk occasionally

ISO competent DMG partners.
I was waiting for a partner for about 30 minutes, while working on those Emily HITs...no one showed. Also, even though I've completed 3 of these HITs in the past, it's treating me like a first timer, and making me do the whole tutorial deal :p
