I've done about 25 of these, not to be confused with the Improve a Transcript HITs. I've only done about 200 transcriptions for CW. These are my ratings with CW: In other words, take whatever I write with a big lump of salt. My first edit was a dud. I got a 5. The audio was about an hour long, the time before it expired was 4 hours and all the transcribers had been graded 9s. This was back when I thought a 9 meant that the transcript was near perfect. Live and learn. I only finished editing two-thirds of the transcript. I removed a crapton of filler words and made comma usage consistent. I then verified all names and acronyms. That alone took forever. I eventually ran out of time. I kept wondering how in the hell someone could get a 9 with all those style guide violations. In my transcriptions, I got negative feedback when I didn't verify names on Google, yet none of these people had done that. I wanted to scream. Anyway, I emailed them that I ran out of time. Rather than reject it, they gave me a 5. More than fair IMO. I took heart in the fact that out of the seven things mentioned in the feedback of that edit, only one was something that I had done. (I made a change like "Jogging's really healthy" to "Jogging is really healthy." Most transcribers do it and get 9s, I didn't. I paid for the other mistakes because I didn't have time to fix them. Again, OK with me since I didn't finish it. I waited for a month to try my next one. It was a 9. Since that first one, all but two have been 9s. The other two were 8s. Like the Improve HITs, you don't get to see where your problems were. To this day, I have no clue. I guess whatever I did wrong, resolved itself.
