    I think with PDFs you have to be careful about checking the date on those. Just make sure it's a link listed on the actual webpage and not a cached page and I think you should be fine.

    I posted pdf file links when I was unable to find any answers from any other source. I figured that it would be better to post an answer then nothing at all. Trying to be as productive as possible for the requester and can understand it going both ways.

    Hi Dustin,

    When a person has multiple current titles within a company do you want all of them or just the main one? I haven't run into this yet for the names I've been looking for but I did notice one name had a co-worker that held a position in the company and also held several board positions.

    When a person has a title within a department such as someone that works at Microsoft is the Manager of Server Storage Software Development (Made that up. Sounds like a dept for MS) how would you like that listed?

    - Manager
    - Manager of Server Storage Software Developement
    - Manager, Server Storage Software Developement

    Or some other way. So far I've listed them how they are in your hits. I have not run across someone who has changed jobs in such a large company.

    Thanks!

    TC

    Gotcha, yeah the ones I was looking at and questioning were from the actual site of the company that the person was supposed to be connected to and it was usually minutes from a meeting where the person was being appointed to a position or something to that extent. So for instance, it would be www.Example1.com/meetingminutes.pdf. So it would be on the actually website, but a pdf that they had linked to their site with the info on it.

    Hey folks,

    I stepped away to work on another project for a while and it seems some questions popped up.

    Regarding .pdf's - They are perfectly acceptable as long as you can copy and paste the link and the name and title (along with the company) are within.

    Regarding the way you submit a title - Please give the fullest title available, so in tcgirl's example either Manager of Server Storage Software Development or Manager, Server Storage Software Development would be acceptable (we programmatically match and those two answer would be matched as the same thing).

    Hope this answered all questions posted since my last answer session.

    Hey Dustin,

    Just to clarify. On the .08 HITs you asked:

    The goal of this HIT is to collect the current title and company for the Executive in our database.

    and also:

    If you find the company name on the provided link, to click the button and submit the HIT.

    How current is current? For some people I was unable to find any current information about his position at the company but had evidence that he had or has worked there.

    Hopefully I'm being clear. Thanks Dustin!

    Wish I could stay up and answer questions all night long but I'm fading fast. I'll be on and off this forum tomorrow and trying to answer questions whenever around my computer. I'll be back full time on the forum Monday.

    I just wanted to let y'all know how much I appreciate the warm welcome this evening and all of the hard work that is being returned. I've been working on smaller scale projects the last few years and really had to expand my AMT comfort zone today, and thanks to this forum and everyone baring with me as I learn it has been relatively painless. In the coming days I'll learn some more, better figure out how to find only the best workers who submit the highest quality work, and hopefully build a lasting professional relationships with most of you on this forum.

    Until tomorrow.

    That is really a judgement question that I haven't even set a concrete answer for. I'd say that anything older than 5 years is too old. But I will ultimately give you the ability to make a "gut" call.

    Dustin,

    Thank you for the work. It seems to make the work more rewarding when you can match a person to the hit.

    Hi everyone,

    I just started up working and was a bit confused. The first part of the HIT is if the employee is with the current title right and the next part is if the title is changed. Please tell me if I am right or wrong....?

    Thanks

    I asked this question a few posts before you and it was answered.

    I noticed the same thing mahas... I was just putting it in the box (making sure to copy from web page) because I assumed that was the most current title.

    How can we leave good TO when nothing has been approved yet. I am nervous as I have done a lot of his HITS and really enjoy them but nothing approved yet. I am holding off on leaving good TO until my work is accepted. Has anyone had work approved yet?

    I am very happy Dustin is here communicating with us....just would feel a lot better seeing my work approved since I have done a lot of his HITS now.

    It nice to hear the view point of requester. So far he is responding to turker's doubts and suggestions. He seems to be a genuine requester as of now. As far as I am concerned, around 40% of the hits, there is a change in title. Remaining 60% have no change in title. They are still there. Is there any one out there, who got the hits approved from this requester.
