    Hi, I was a little surprised to see out of my first 100 or so hits I have a 76% submission rate. The 14 returns I can sort of understand, some because I didn't know what I was doing, some accidental (for some reason I kept reading it as "Return to HIT" and would click w/out thinking...which I found a script I'm hoping will help.) But the 9 abandoned ones I was not aware of. I couldn't find any way to see what HITs specifically I abandoned, to n hopefully get an idea about why this was happening...is there a way? I understand it isn't as serious as rejections, but how much can this hurt me?
    Thanks

    An Abandon occurs whenever a HIT timer expires before you submit the HIT.

    As you already know, it's important to avoid Rejections.
    Abandons and Returns won't hurt much.
    Very few requesters look at Abandons, Returns, or Submission %.

    Title: Identify these images as School appropriate. (WARNING: This HIT may contain adult content. Worker discretion is advised.) | PANDA

    There's no way specifically to identify which HITs were abandoned or returned.

    Workers from India can see their precise numbers (in aggregate) on the dashboard.
    Since 2014, American workers generally can't get the precise numbers.
    To get the percentages, we need to use a script, or chase through the Qualifications tabs.
