    I tried doing the qualification tests but it stopped me at 7. Is that because I had already failed the test? I thought I had read that we needed to do at least 8 to try for qualification.

    There's seems to be an issue with one of the HITs, we will of course take this into account, so don't worry.

    Is Radio networks considered be as News organisation?

    Sorry, I accidentally submit the hit without giving info in Box C, Y!! Pressed Enter button accidentally.
    Please forgive me.

    Radio is considered to be a news organisation.

    Could you give more detail on the HIT you incorrectly submitted? We have thousands...

    Again, without a copy of the link we wouldn't be able to say. There are a number of Telegraph newspapers. We certainly look out for it though, when we go through the results.

    Thank you

    I was wondering about taking your qualification...

    If the link provided is not only not a news organization/site, but also a buyable domain, i.e., a simple site with lists of links (none of which to a news organization), how would I fill out the information? Since there is no article title...

    I was looking at taking the 8 HITs, but I want to make sure I am doing them correctly.

    Thank you for your time and thank you for providing help on the forum!

    I was wondering if you have resolved this issue. I would love to be able to get the qualification for your hits.

    I made a couple of mistakes on the first and second HIT. One was entering NO instead of N. The other was entering the URL of the article for Question B. I have read the directions more carefully and now understand how to correctly enter the data that you need. I left a note on each one of the HITs where I made a mistake. I hope this will be taken into account as you review my test HITs. Thank you!

    Hi, I sent you an email through mturk, but figured I'd make a post as well

    There is currently only 1 HIT available in the qualifying batch, how can I do the 8 needed for qualification?

    Thanks for your time.

    I also sent you a message through MTurk :) and figured I would piggy back off of Lotkrotan's post here to see how else I can go about doing the rest needed for qualification.

    Thank you in advance.

    We were experiencing problems with that batch, so we have cancelled it and published a new batch. Let us know if there are any more issues.

    I certainly know what SPAM is as I see it daily in my email box but I am not sure how you are defining SPAM.

    Welp... My eight are turned in... Hope I did well... One was a radio/TV station (foreign) but all links seemed to stay on their site - so....

    Anyhow, welcome! Glad to have you here!
