So being a noob and all I have two questions:
Is it true the weekends are slower?
Does school going back into session for the fall change how busy it is generally speaking?

Those are both rumors I have heard
Thanks

It's often much slower - and though sometimes there is a batch to save the day - it's summer. And August.

In the Fall, survey's will probably pick up from school being in session. And hopefully more work-work, as well.

Yes to both. Most of the high paying survey HITs are college funded or at least related, correlate that with work days within the tech community and you get bad weekends for batches and droughty summers for surveys. And then terrible fall breaks. And horrifically bad winter holidays. And then spring time when requesters are out enjoying themselves instead of paying us for trivia. And then you'll skip a weekend during the summer and return to see everyone but you seemingly made $400 that day. And then...it goes on.

Luckily, I've found these great people to complain about it with so I don't feel helplessly alone in my frustrations so welcome to the pact!

''Pact''? No, no, you must mean pack. Pact sounds like an equitable agreement. I'd call turkers a ravenous pack of starving wolves...Welcome to the jungle. Just call me ''granny'' wolf.

I mean if we're going to get totally technical I'd settle on a 'murder'. Like crows that leave nuts they can't crack in the street waiting for a car to run over it.
