    Hi All,

    Longtime lurker, but I had to create an account to ask a specific question. I have been turking on and off for a little bit, but only in the last week or so put things into overdrive, and am just now starting to see some decent returns on it. Today, I got a message saying that I have completed my maximum number of HITs for the day (I submitted 90) - I have never heard of anybody else having a cap on their HIT submissions in a day - is this a thing? Admittedly, I have never done that many HITs in 24 hours, but it kind of took the wind out of my sails after getting into a good rhythm!

    Am I still on some sort of probation or something?

    Yes you are still on probation. You are capped at 100 HITs submitted + returned for about a week. Afterward that jumps to 3800 HITs.

    Stupid followup: I have had an active account for the better part of two months - how do I go about unlocking the cap? Is there a daily threshold I need to hit?

    You may need to do a few HITs every day for that first week without taking a day off.
