M @Mikey Chlanda - ah ok, thanks for clarifying. That's an interesting thing to be aware of, so I'm glad you clarified!

I wrongly thought that if I got to the part where I got the code, it was "approved."
Thankfully, I've done heaps of surveys for online money earning - Swagbucks, etc., so I'm tuned into the attention checks and such.

With regards to the dashboard, thanks for mentioning that. It's definitely an important thing to monitor! I've been keeping an eagle eye on it, and out of the 300 HITs I've submitted so far (yes, I'm definitely a newbie), I've only had 1 rejection - I was bummed to see that rejection & wish there was a way to know WHY it was rejected other than messaging the requester... if there is a way to somehow see what that exact HIT was aside from seeing just the title of it, I'd love to know. Like what was the content of it, and what were my inputs. Maybe I'd be able to see what I did wrong and understand it.
if you go to the day you did the hit that was rejected In your dashboard, you'll see a listing of the hits you did that day. Go to the one that was rejected and click on it. It'll expand and show you the reason the requestor gave for rejecting. usually it's not that helpful, sometimes it says you missed an attention check, sometime that you did it before. Else that, only thing to do is email the requestor and ask for an explanation.

With the conversation today around the "request qual" situation - I have another question... is there any way to contact the task requester to explain WHY you should be given the qualification? It seems so odd that there is this randomness otherwise. All they see is this person on MTURK who has clicked their button to request the qualification, and they don't know necessarily why this person is a good fit for their task, other than them trying to decipher your current list of MTURK qualifications. People DO have qualifications that exist outside of MTURK for pete's sake... or maybe had they been on MTURK when this previous wave 1 study happened or whatever, they would have qualified.

Forgive me if this is something I should have been able to figure out by myself, but all I can see is the ability to contact a requester if they are in my dashboard - if I've actually completed one of their HITs.

I would love to qualify for the HIT entitled "Covid-19 & psychological health of people with cats (10-15 mins)(~ 10 minutes)" for $2 - I am definitely interested in this topic - but there are 2 quals for it that I don't have, and I have no clue what they actually mean:
  • TP Panel: 86431744 N is not less than 100
  • Inc: [19-335711] has been granted
I did click to request those quals, but I doubt I will get them.

I have 3 cats, and they have helped me get through COVID lockdowns for sure. Speaking of my cats, one of them is currently snuggled up next to me on my recliner, one of them is sitting on the footstool and is mad that SHE isn't the one snuggled into that spot on the recliner, and the 3rd cat is not in view currently... she is most likely wedged into a spot where she shouldn't be (I did hear something crashing down earlier. Hmmm....)

jan @jan - what are your thoughts on this? Or others that may know?

Thanks for helping this newbie out!
I knew someone who personally requested a qual and got it. It was for batch work.

But for academic quals? You can always try. But if they DID give it to you, it would mess up their study (they are really supposed to stick with their method section. So, they say - my sample was from X population, I did these things...... oh, and someone else wanted to join so I did that too!). From a scientific perspective, it's wrong.

eta: I hope I explained that adequately. I can see I did not explain it well, lol. but perhaps you got it anyway :). it would mess up the methods section.

What a day. what weather. Saw lots of high creeks, ditches and fields flooded going throught the country this morning. did our regular weekly run to walmart and aldi's. But started here https://www.lehmans.com/ and ended up here: https://www.beyondmeasuremarket.com/
It is pouring here - and the snow is almost gone (this time of year, we always have snow.......).

weird winter!

and lehmans is such a cool store (never been in one, but I used to get their catalog!)
