wow - just came across my first HIT with a a 30-second timeout. And there was me wishing 1 minute HITs would be banned ... crazy :wink:

p.s. do providers realize the time starts when the HIT is clicked on, not when the page has loaded? And the page has to be submitted within the time limit as well... sighhhhhhhh

I'm at 50 dollars already for the day just by doing the Noah Turks beat the system. It has over 100 hits right now and it looks like he keeps adding them.

It's boring to do a lot of these, and he takes forever to approve payment (some I have to wait the 30 days) but they add up a lot faster than 25-75 cent surveys and junk.

I just completed a 30-second one, lol.

By the time the page had loaded, 20 seconds had passed, so 4 seconds to do the job, and 4 to submit :)

I guess I moan so much because of my slow page loads, but there isn't anything I can do about that unfortunately, that's how long these massive pages take to load from Bangkok...

Here was my reply:

That sounds very dishonest and I will not do it. In fact I will be changing my review to reflect this and will not be recommending your product to my other cat and dog owners. This was not part of the deal, you were going to refund me the purchase price of the product for a review and now you are changing the deal.

I will also make sure that the people that work on mTurk know about this so that if you plan on being a requester again they will not be taken advantage of.

I am very disappointed that you have chosen to run your business this way, you had a very nice product.

Sincerely
-r****

Yeah I’m pretty sure that violates Turk TOS 101 and they’re not even trying to hide it

Waiting to hear from my neighbor who's kitty was attacked yesterday by neighbors' dogs, whippets or greyhounds. I don't know how it happened since my neighbor watches this kitty very closely when she's out and of course, she's not ready to talk about it yet. Kitty won't stay inside, a bit of a wild child. Baby spent night at OSU animal hospital in guarded condition in ICU.

Good morning. I work evenings/nights the next two days so I have some slightly uninterrupted turk time. Well, and I will ride my pony.
