Is it the same thing as the last ones but 3 colleges to look at per hit or something? Never managed to get one
You look at one college and say what the Deadline is to put in your application and for financial aid

I woke up late today and have struggled. Good news is I'm over $150 for this shortened week. Bad news is I have $150ish more to go.

Does anyone have any ideas on this problem? I complete a giphy hit, I have the accept next box checked, but even so it take me to the "you're submitted this hit, check back later for others, blah, blah" main amazon search page. Searching giphy, more are certainly there, in fact, the number available is increasing. And I can accept and do them. I've never had this happen with any other hit I've done.

Wow i got an Mturk present. I seem to have really bad luck and no skill at timing things, like I end up with too many surveys at once and they all expire, or I don't pay attention, spend forever on something not realizing it was about to expire, etc...So I was trying to decide whether to do a $4 survey taking a chance I would finish, but possibly wasting my time...which usually turns out bad...and another of the same survey just pops up in my queue! Sorry for the long boring story but 9 times out of 10 it would have been something to whine about.

this is called throttling. Direct your hate at Amazon. It's because so many people are doing them Amazon cuts you off to preserve server stuff.

That wsa slightly awkward but mostly pleasant interview. Also forwarded her to TO, she seemed genuinely upset by it but she was more than assuring that she'd address these issues.

Make sure you send them an e-mail about it, so that they can print it and glue it together with the hundreds of all other mturk e-mails that Jeff Bezos uses as a blanket of hate to sleep comfy every night.

A lot of the requesters are actually college kids as well or professors from what I have noticed.

Actually you should. If enough of us complain it might make a difference. Something happened once where PREs were unbearable for some people for like a week. Tons messaged Jeff. IIRC we got an actually response form his office and the problem was solved shortly there after. They won't know it's an issue if you don't yell about it.
