    When you do a hit that asks for a total, and the receipt says subtotal because it still needs someone to put the tip in from a restaurant, what should my answer be? Do I figure the tip or do I just put in one of their answers like no name or total is provided? Thanks!

    who is the requester? I don't do those hits, but if you told me their name, I'd start out by checking TO and see what others say.

    The reason that most of us don't do receipt hits - btw - is that they aren't profitable. Are you making a good hourly wage on them?

    The requester is Scoutit. And no I don't make that great a wage, but sometimes I shy away from hits because I don't want rejections.

    Oh. Well, I wouldn't advise those hits. He's a terrible requester. Have you signed up for TO? I think it's going to work for awhile yet (turk opticon). It goes through his whole history. Have you installed any scripts? If you check the requesters reviews, that will help - you'll be able to make an informed decision. Your first step is mturk suite https://github.com/Kadauchi/mturk-suite
