Today I have found about three HITs that just say your answers have been recorded without giving the code to submit the HIT. What do you guys do, just return it?

FYI still on my third day of turking.

Thanks in advance

For a while, I just put "No Code" in the MTurk page box, but I got a rejection once for doing that. So, now I just report them - every single time! - and return the hit. Safer that way.

ALWAYS SUBMIT THE HIT IF YOU DO THE WORK!

One rejection is not a big deal -- and more often than not, you will get paid!

Just input your Mturk ID or something from the final page of the survey.

I enter my mturk ID, and contact the requester letting them know what happened. To cover my bases. You've done the work. You should get paid for it.

I agree - I should get paid for it - but the requester who dinged me wouldn't even reply to my inquiry. For me, I've got to get a whole lot more hits under my belt to have it not matter if that happens again. When I get up to 10K, I will probably revise my stance on it. 4,000 to go! :D

It makes sense to hold off until you have enough HITS. However, reporting it to Amazon (I'm sorry to say) doesn't do anything.

Very rarely (as in once) have I ever seen them get involved. And that was because THEY were about to lose a lot of money. I'm certain they have intervened more than once.......but not that much more:\

Thanks, Jan -

Having been a seller on Amazon for 10 years, I'm not surprised. That seems to be the case across the board with AMZ.
But I appreciate your input, and will save myself the time from here on out!

I agree that holding off makes sense for people who are fairly new and don't have a lot of room for rejections, or might be doing dodgy requesters. But I don't think I have ever been rejected when the survey didn't give a code. Now I usually just write something like "no code" and add my ID. But I also take a screenshot of the final survey page and save it with a name I'll recognize. I find Fireshot works well for webpage screenshots.
