Merovign @Merovign regarding your most recent post, you're experiencing throttling. No way around it and support wouldn't do anything about it

It happens when a lot of people are accepting/trying to accept the hit at the same time
Well thanks for explaining. Don't know why it didn't happen during the day but it happened all night, when traffic is supposed to be lower.

Cost me a bunch of $$ apparently, yesterday would have been my record day so far otherwise.

Hah! go to sleep for 5 hours and vicky drops the qual hits again...fug it...if its meant to be it will be. I do not care
I'm trying to be Zen, too. Bad night for it. Morning for you. :)

Yeah I just got screwed on another one that didn't work. My Zen tank is empty, I'm out for the night.

Good luck to the morning crew, I kind of hope it's just my turn in the barrel rather than some systemwide problem.

yep 1 1/2 years..finally after talking on the phone to customer reps many times and many emails, I sent a last email. It was something like this. "Hi folks, I am about to start collecting SS and I had found that working for mturk was like having a part time job. I like it. At this point I would just like to know why. No one has been able to explain that to me" In less than an hour I got an email that said I needed to change my birthday on my mturk stuff. I was born in 1956, they had me listed as born in 2056. I changed that and in 30 minutes ,I got an email thanking me and saying that I was good to go. I signed on, did a four cent hit and was back in...go figure?

I stayed up way too late but I got a HIT to work without the failures I was having all last night. Fingers crossed maybe today will be better.

Much later today, as I haven't gone to sleep yet.

Fingers crossed for you, too, greg.

Thanks

At least the Prolific surveys keep coming. And I've never had one rejected, so there's that.

Good grief.
Every article that I read has a different opinion about tires. (To get studded ones or not). So confused.....
