    Hello fellow turkers! Quick question about pending HIT status. I did some HITs about a week ago, and they're still showing pending, how long should I wait before contacting the requester to ask about It?

    Appreciate your thoughts and look forward to reading them.

    Requesters have 30 days to approve HITs. If they don't approve within 30 days, they just approve automatically. I wouldn't bother with messaging a requester about it.

    Just the answer I needed. Thanks! I have to keep waiting now. Strange that I had 1 rejected of the 11 I submitted and it's been 15 days and 10 still pending. :thinking:

    Some will reject very quickly based on an attention check or some other criteria, and then the other hits may not approve until their auto approve date.

    Were they all the in the same batch - by the same requester?
