I could not quote you from yesterday's thread, but just in case you are unaware, garlic is very easy to grow, and planting season is pretty much now to three weeks from now and it does well in poor soil.

I personally do not bother because I have a local very small farmers market with a lady that sells local garlic 4 or 5 for a dollar that can sit on a counter for a year without sprouting.

morning all.... just my opinion, but hit's have been pretty lousy lately. Am I right or just imagining things?
Not for me. I think, depending on what you like to do, things may be different. But, doing surveys for most of the day, I can stay mostly busy during the week, and make the same as I always do, within that range anyway. :)

The great bot scare has really scared off requesters. There is no telling whether or not they will return (the academic ones). As for other hits, they were dropping off as well (it seems). IDK. I don't know if there's a way to calculate the number of hits available (as there was before).

But that's my impression.

There is definitely less available HITs though. You're right about that.

I'm getting less surveys, but it's made me start doing more batches and finding other types of hits I can do.

Noah's for instance.

Exactly right. The one thing that you can depend on with Mturk, is that you'll have to adapt and learn, to survive.:p

There is definitely less available HITs though. You're right about that.
It seems to me that some of the academic requesters are going masters (to mitigate the bot-idea)? (Not sure about that, either - but it looks like that, to me)

idk anything about that but, I've been talking with a lot of requesters and I think they just need to be reedjucated and made aware of the non-situation, and the hype surrounding it. It seems to work pretty well. I feel that whenever we bring it up en masse, not like this but, like sometimes happens(like /beermoney and reddit in general), we do ourselves a disservice by reinforcing the stigma, regardless of intention.:) It sucks but, talking to requesters seems to work for me, so far.

EDIT It alleviates a bit of the fear and adds a human face to Mturk workers.:D
