    Hello Folks!

    I just wanted to quickly introduce myself as the newest, and greenest member of the forum, as well as the wider mTurk community in general.

    I am a New Orleans native living in Chicago. I am a combat Veteran of The United States Army, and served as an NCO in Iraq during 2004-2005. I also have an undergraduate education in a wide range of mostly unrelated, uninteresting, and unmarketable subjects.

    I came across this forum while researching and getting started with mTurk on the /r/mTurk subreddit. And when I say that I am green, I mean it! My account here, on mTurk.com, as well as with Amazon Payments are all less than two hours old. I have spent several weeks reading up as much as I could find before actually signing up, and am looking forward to getting started on my first Hit shortly.

    I am excited, to get down to it, and see how this all works, and to see how profitable I can make it. As I said, I have done a lot of reading, mostly of info in various reddit posts. I am just now starting to go through the boards on this forum, but if anyone would like to offer any suggestions, tips, advice, must-know info, etc. It would be graciously accepted!

    Thanks in advance, and I look forward to corresponding with the community here!
