I just started a month or so ago, and am up to over 2700 hits, mostly due to the information on this forum. I can only suggest - download ALL of the scripts, and start making a list of good requesters. When nothing is available to work on, search those requesters and you start finding things. I also do some text searches on things like "survey" or "opinion" etc... and that finds things as well. Look at the TO and see if the hit is reasonable for the time allowed.
