    This is a notice about approvals.

    Recently, I've been getting complaints about approvals but I didn't put two and two together until someone with the approval time script installed told me that it changed.

    That was a bug. You guys may have noticed that we recently changed the HITs in a few ways. For example, we combined select HITs and enabled US HITs. We also improved our admin side in many ways, and now other people except just me provide feedback to you guys.

    As part of these changes the new version contained a bug. I accidentally misspelled the very long parameter name AutoApprovalDelayInSeconds and didn't notice because it does not appear in the HIT, which means that all auto approval were defaulting to 30 days. As you guys know, all 11223344 HITs auto-approve, so this means nothing was approving.

    I fixed this, so new HITs will have an approval of 240 minutes (4 hours), just like before. I am also manually approving all HITs with 30 day auto approvals right now.

    I would like to encourage you to please complete both groups. Several times in the next few days I will manually approve all the buggy 30 day auto approve HITs.

    I apologize for the inconvenience. Please feel free to email me with any bugs you might find in the future. I didn't realize this until this morning when someone in the Turkernation IRC chat room told me that it changed.

    Thanks for all your work! :eek:
