    No!

    You know I think you are the HIT God!

    But having 5k plus dos NOT guarantee quality was my point.

    I had an e-mail conversation with this requester and all is good. Hit requirements are a necessary part of the study - That's ALL GOOD!!!

    I just know of others that have 100k plus HITs that focus on batches and are not the best Turkers out their, if you know what I mean... You do not fall in this category. We would all be worse off if not for your help an support!

    Same with you Shell!

    We all know you are awesome! You do great work and have great approvals from what you have said!

    I was just upset at first that the requester felt he could only get good quality from people with over 5k HITs... You and I both know that is BS!!!

    If you have over 5k Hit's and above 99% you are rocking!!! There are so may that get so may rejections that at 5k they are at 95% or 97%. I just won't do crappy work - and I won't do batches I can't make $0.10 a minute on. I have way too much other stuff to do... Family obligations, Lionbridge, etc...

    I jumped the gun on this and bitched when I should have contacted the requester directly. I have since resolved that and will do the HITs when I can. Shell and 2Much, you are awesome! And I did not mean to insult!

    ahh I understand the frustration. I experienced it also in my push to get numbers up. I did feel snubbed a bit though. Thanks for reiterating.

    Sorry you felt snubbed. It was not my intention! You were one of the key people that helped me get profitable on mTurk! And I think every one else feels the same way!

    This was just a case of me jumping the gun and my fingers worked quicker than my mind... Hopefully I will eventually live it down.

    The requester is awesome! And explained everything in an email! I had to remember this was a research study - not just a simple rate the tweet sentiment thing. The requester has his own needs above mine. And I was a fool!

    Thanks all for reminding me..

    PS. I still think having 5k HITs is not a guarantee of quality - but 5k Hits and over 99% or in that range is! It was the 5k thing that was bugging me....

    Trust me RW you didn't offend me at all. My numbers and stats speak for themselves. I was actually disagreeing with you that just because your approval rating is 99.9 does not mean you are a good worker. The same as having an approval rating below that does not mean you give crap work. It is my opinion that you need both numbers and quality to prove that you are a good worker.

    My point exactly!!!!!

    Agreed!

    That's why we need you "experienced" workers! LOL

    Always to the point and on the level!

    We have seen the workers that have 100k+ approved HITs that we know are scamming... This makes it harder for all of us!

    My point was that with almost 1900 and only 2 rejections (99.9% approval) that should say something. But not as much as some one with 45,000 approvals and over 96%!!! If you have those kind of stats you are obviously doing the right thing! Just was pointing out that 1900 approvals and 99.9% approval shows good work.

    Again... I put my foot in my mouth in this one. The study required the same sample set doing the HITs. I didn't think about that and just ran and bitched. Should not have done that! I have resolved it with the requester.

    I have 100% approval rate (only 2 rejections out of ~28.000 HITs) and still haven't got his second qualification, only the first one. It wasn't rejected, just pending; and i haven't had any luck in contacting him. I think he just needs a fixed number of workers, not too many.

    Right now i'm hoping to see more HITs like the first ones. If i'm not mistaken, he said they will come soon.

    He did...

    And this is an awesome HIT...

    My bitching was inappropriate and ill advised! I am more professional than that and knew better!

    Every HIT I've done for this requester has been approved with out fail; not one reject!!! I was just very disappointed I couldn't participate in the new batch and so I launched my mouth. Please ignore my ignorance!

    I wonder what the subject of his research is. Is he studying the incidence of trending subjects in tweets, or is he studying us?

    Mind you, as long as my food dish is full and my cage is kept clean, I'm fine with being a lab rat.

    Once again, somebody on the original batch has to have been doing crap work. I had one I had to give back because none of the tweets were keyword related, and lots of them with two or three unrelated ones.

    I saw one tweet that was nothing but the word "soup".

    Was there a second batch of these put up tonight? I just found three of them left, none of which I could do, because none of the tweets were about the keywords.
