    Is it supposed to turn purple right away or do I need to wait a while for it to change?

    Is this true for MTS or is this specifically a PC thing?

    Should be within 10-20 cycles max.

    Not familiar with the inner workings of MTS, but if it somehow indicates that you're not qualified when the hit is active, it should do the same when its not.

    I don't know for MTS but I don't think that Hit Catcher has anything telling you that you have been blocked but I could be wrong. @Kadauchi would have that answer for you if he is around. I know that PC purple means you're blocked :lol:

    It's running and not turning purple so :dunno:
    Honestly though, thinking about it just makes my blood boil. I've been sick all day, so I'm moving on to happier thoughts.

    I decided to just test it myself to know for sure. MTS doesn't turn purple as expected, but it turns purple for me just fine in PC. By it I'm referring to a requester that blocked me. :emoji_joy:

    Well if it's not purple that means you're not blocked. Blocks can hurt your account and too many can get your account suspended so at least that's good news lol :ay:

    I know. Which is why I know I can take a block from her and still be fine. I would only have been worried if I had at least two blocks within a 6 month period (I think it's 6 months unless it's changed). What I was actually troubled by was the threat to report. Because THAT will get accounts closed regardless of blocks. However, I had my documented ammo and didn't just blindly jump into this. I was careful what I sent the IRB for a reason.

    To be fair, she damned herself with her own email

    "I tried the way you provided but didn't work.
    Also, I still believe 226 second was a right cutting time for 101 questions.
    I checked time you spent. It was much longer than 226 seconds However, It seems Mturk only count the time you actually contribute to the survey.
    If you continue, maybe I should report to Mturk and block you. I don't want to make an uncomfortable situation."

    Nevermind: "If you completed our previous HIT, Test of Data Aptitude, you may NOT work on this one. Your HIT will be rejected."

    Exact same. The requester also asks that you do not participate again.

    Johanna Peetz [A1TD89VNMSNI7I] Daily Interactions Study - DAY 4(~ 10 minutes) - $0.50 | PANDA


    Generous

    Unrated

    Excellent
    $29.03 / hour
    00:01:02 / completion time
    Pros:
    Short follow up survey depending on how you answer. This is day four. Good hourly. You get a $1 bonus for completing all the surveys -7 total-. The requester was nice enough to offer to pay the bonus even though I missed the first and second surveys because I didn't get the reminder emails.
    Cons:
    Did not receive the reminder emails even though the requester said she sent them so I missed the first two days. Te requester said they would fix this but I didn't get one the fourth day either, so this remains an issue for now.

    Qualifications: Inc: [124775-124568] Exists ; Location In CA, US;
