I am looking for a little bit of help in acquiring batch work. Over the past 2 days I was able to work on a $.01 batch and because they literally only took seconds to complete I was able to maintain a 11.80/hr rating. Because of this the last two days have been the best of my short life on MTurk. I am now interesting in the best way for someone that has 500 approved HITs to acquire batch work? I have over 2000 HITs pending so once they are approved I know that I will hopefully have better paying HITs open up to me.

Are they a trustworthy requester (so you know they will approve?)
It's unlikely there will be a mass rejection - but just want to put out there - it has happened :(.
As for finding good batches, years ago -we'd list a few names. These days, those names have long since moved on to greener pastures. Mturk is a shadow of it's heyday-self. So, there isn't a list. When opportunities pop up, do a few hits - and see. Sometimes, it will evolve into a closed qual and that will be awesome :).
Otherwise, it's hard out there......and to make matters worse, it's summer - and it's always a bit slow during summer.

The requestor that I did the work for has approved my work in the past but this was the first time I did so many HITs for them. I sure hope that they do not do a mass rejection.

Thanks for the response on the batches and I hope that one day batches come back for I really enjoyed the mindless task that I had done over the past 2 days. I was not required to type a response or even hardly think...lol

I would not mind getting some free toothpaste. It reminds me of being a kid back with my mother signed the family up at National Family Opinion back in the late 70s.
