    What's the most you've did in a day? I'm curious to the most you've been able to squeeze out in one working day if you stayed at it all day without distractions?

    The most I've managed in one day is 49, and that's with a lot of breaks. I've gotten 19 so far today. I just started doing them last week and I've done 174 for him so far. I returned a lot that were really complicated, though apparently that's not a good idea so I won't anymore.

    I don't know why anyone would slave away on those unless you're just trying to get numbers up and have literally nothing else to do. The time involved to payout ratio is horrible IMO. More power to you though if you can get through them fast.

    That's basically it, out of available Crowdsource hits(no need to point out that they're hardly much better) ;P and done all the decent surveys for the moment. At least I know he'll approve and pay.

    Truth be told, not as fast as I'd like after making sure that all of the letters are the right case and that I've got all available information in the right place.

    If you're looking for numbers, be on the look out for when Redwood posts some caption reviews. They only pay 1 cent, but they all approve and it takes ~5-10 seconds at the most. Usually a good batch of about 100 will get put up a few times a day.

    I did one, but it looks like you can only one at a time. Is this like some of the crowdsource hits where they only let you do a certain number even though they say that they have 15,000 of them?

    The title is something like "Review a basic transcription >10 seconds" or something to that nature. You can do an unlimited amount of those when they are up.

    So i have found a way to approve all your HIT's for sure.. and yes there is a catch.... they are all surveys and a little bit tedious, but still it's worth it.....
    Well it is working for now until a rat reports it.. try it when you still have time..
    Here's the link..

    Does it involve us signing up on a website by you, so that we give you our IP address, a password, and email address? No thanks. Spamming with only four post?

    Ok, the one I did was called "Basic Caption Requirements Review". One cent and it was approved.

    I tried again this morning and got



    "Hi, at Redwood Tech we strive for quality results. Your work so far has not met our standards and we’re sorry, but you cannot complete our HITs anymore."

    Please return this HIT and select another one of a different type."

    After one, one cent approved hit? You'd think they'd give me another chance. Granted, the instructions there are a bit odd compared to what actually happens, so I probably wouldn't have gotten it right the second time either.

    Re: Redwood Hits - they seem to want a 90% approval rating. I took a BIG hit about 2 months ago, and got knocked down to about 80%. I'm working hard to bring my approval rating back up. It was consistently 95% before! : ( So that's why I'm doing Oscar hits. I also kind of enjoy Oscar hits, although they don't pay much.

    This fool also sent me private message with the very same message. She might have sent some of you too.
