    Hello and welcome to MTC. Be sure to check out the daily work thread. Lots of good tips there. Also, you can tag forum mentors using @Mentor if you need a question answered.

    Hey there! Welcome. Definitely check out these links, if you haven't. When I first started doing this 'full time' the info found in these is a good foundation for building your turking skills and, if you ask for help, it makes it easier to get the basics out of the way. Good luck and let me, or anyone, know if we can help.

    Thanks Jerami,
    I'm looking through the forums and trying to build those turking skills. I don't expect to pay my bills with Mturk but I am looking to turn it into a decent income stream. Not being contingent on anything but an active internet connection is appealing for a lot of reasons. I'd be open to hearing any tips, tricks, or helpful oddities that you've picked up along the way. Also of interest to me is what being a "full time" turker actually looks like. Time spent on the site, what the upper limits are in terms of income, and an overview of how you plan your work day if you do it "full time". If you would be willing to share or point me in the direction of a thread that has that info that would be great. Thanks for the response.
