    Welcome to today's MTurk Crowd work thread!

    Today's thread is a HIT Poster Award voting thread. The five nominees in the poll above were chosen because they were the top five HIT posters for the month of May. Please vote for whichever member you feel deserves recognition for the great HITs that they share with our community. Voting will take place today only, and the winner will be announced tomorrow.

    The winner of today's vote will receive $40 via PayPal, donation member perks, and a special "HIT Poster" banner under their username.


    Please keep in mind that campaigning for votes, whether for yourself or for someone else, is not allowed. Any forum post asking for votes will be removed and may lead to disqualification.

    Full award rules can be viewed here: HIT Poster Monthly Award
    The list of previous HIT Poster Award winners can be viewed in the HIT Poster Award Hall of Fame



    I don't have anything to go with the title, it was requested by @ducky@ducky. Have some tabbies instead.

    If anyone else is working the Emily Wilson hits, have many of your hits been approved yet? I've had 2 of 12 approved but those were almost instant approval. Then nothing.

    Good advice, I can take a few hundred rejections so shouldn't be worried. They just seem too easy.

    I did her last batch just like this one and didn't get a single rejection. I was very nervous about a mass rejection too for the first batch.

    The tutorial was a nightmare, I spent 1/2 hour on it. But the actual hits afterwards take 30 - 45 seconds.

    seriously how the hell did you get it to choose june 10 on example 4? i did exactly what she showed in example 1 and it just kept saying it was wrong...so i cleared it out to start over and hit some X on the page and bam -8% complete with no advancing

    edit: i'm just really f'n annoyed because i spent a half hour trying to figure it out and now i can't complete it or do any of her hits no matter what

    If you're at -8% then hit the redo button which will put you back at 0. Then, just figure out how to turn everything green. Pm me if you have a specific question.

    These Emily Wilson Hits.. it's really only one search and that's it? I feel it's far too easy for 50 cents each
