Anyone have opinions about hits where you have to record yourself with the webcam? I'm pretty new to this and have been returning hits with this requirement so far. I'm not sure why, but it kind of creeps me out. Are webcam hits required to get to masters level one day? Any feedback appreciated! :banghead:

Morning, I have Masters and I have never done a webcam hit. The nice thing with MTurk is you can do the jobs that are your comfort level. My son does jobs I don't and he is Masters also.

Nobody knows how you get Masters. As many people will tell you, it seems to have no Rhyme or reason as to who gets it or not. The best thing you can do is focus on doing the best jobs you can. Read the forums. I spent a lot of time when I first started using the search bar at the top and putting in key words to find good requesters and information. Grab as many quals as you can even if they seem bad. You don't have to do the job, once you have the qual but you may regret not having it down the road.

Thanks for the great info! It's great to know that webcamming is not going to be a requirement down the road. I will definitely take your advice along with doing more quals. :D

Only if they pay a lot. I've done ones for $10. Those are fun. There's one requester, can't think of the name now, but they run a qual test a lot and I think quite a few people do those. But if you want in my work space, you're gonna pay for it. That's my opinion. Some folks don't mind selling their privacy in their home.

Don't bet on it not being a requirement down the road. I got one on prolific one day that wanted to record me working a survey for a buck. Not been back to that site since.

Good morning! Finishing up my second week of being on Mturk & I still have really good feelings about it especially knowing how to use scripts to my advantage. I try to at least get 30 HITs a day and so far I've got 160 approved and made about $130. I know that may not be much for two weeks but I'm trying to focus on getting the most approved HITs possible so that the workload gets better & more diverse. You guys on this forum have been a great help!!! :)

Ricky Mok Research Study on Internet performance and video quality assessment $2

It looks like a lot of promise for bonus' if you don't mind revisiting the task page repeatedly. I got through the tutorial, so I'm in. :blackalien:

At least you do not have to go back and chase the bonus, you can just settle for the $2 with the hit.

That's not bad at all! I made a little over $3 my first week and did over 100 HITs, I clearly had no idea what I was doing :LOL:

On today's National calendar, I predict a few MTC'ers will be giddy.

National Day of the Horse - I know of at least savvy @savvy is involved with horses so happy day to you and the other MTCers who enjoy or own horses

National Violin Day

National Guard Day
- happy birthday to the National Guard. Around here, it's the Air National Guard and keep filling the skies with sweet CV-22 Osprey noise as you fly around on your training missions!

National Cocoa Day

National Salesperson Day
