    olivia [A2SF0DWL6IZRYF] Answer a survey about your sport spectatorship experience - $0.50 | PANDA


    Low

    Unrated

    Unrated
    $6.10 / hour
    00:04:55 / completion time
    Pros:
    Glad it was over.
    Cons:
    Was moving as pretty damn fast on this one too to see how fast I could do it, but guess times won't be much faster, but could be 2-3 minutes longer if you're slower.

    Think this is longer than the quarter version posted before (esports version looked to be the same when I opened and returned it).

    I would stay away unless this pay comes up or there is literally nothing else available. Too bubbly. Should definitely pay at least 75 cents, if not more.

    I got it. But it is different than what you guys said. I did Hit Forker Advanced settings and it did it.

    You really needn't worry about this. It's awesome that you want to do good work, and also be considerate to other workers. That's so rare it's like winning the lottery or finding a hyperdermic needle on a New York subway that's both got all its heroin and doesn't have Hepatitis.

    But, for all we know, Cereal likes the varied data.

    As someone in the senior pool, I don't mind someone that's still learning the ropes a bit, if they're making a genuine effort. It's dirt simple and boring if you're a follower: if you've got a good leader, there's no ambiguity of what you need to do (where to turn, what to grab) so as long as you're willing to listen, you're not going to mess up.

    As a leader, even if you know what you're doing, it can still be difficult, and that's actually what I've come to quite like. Ideally, you've got to plan at least 2 of your turns (of 5 moves) ahead, 2 of the follower's, and also be aware what you want to do in the long term. I've yet to get even that good; if this were a chess game, I'd be falling for the 4 move checkmate, every game. I really enjoy the challenge of it, though

    One of the distinguishing things you'll see with a good leader, or as one, is when you get instructions like, "And after you get [x], [stage to grab y]/[go towards the tower and grab y when you see it]" versus "Go get [x]".
    This really makes a huge difference. With the follower having 10 (?) moves, if it only takes 2 for them to grab a card, they're wasting 8 they could have used to go for the next thing.

    One thing you can do as a follower is just automatically rotate yourself, if you have moves, and no further instructions. If you're facing off the grid, use two turns to reorient so you're facing inward; this is going to be helpful 90% of the time.

    Sorry, that got off into the weeds with advice, but what I want you to know is you shouldn't worry about screwing up other people. After a few games, you'll wonder what you thought was so hard at all. :^) I had a couple people in the senior group who mentioned that they were still learning, and they still did an adequate stand up job, so if you're leader and you're feeling intimidated, just type "I'm a bit flustered, bare with me", and unless whomever you're playing with is a real jerk, everything'll be fine. Heck, SilenceOfTheClams hasn't even sent me any Hallmark cards with short buses, so I know things work out. :)

    I officially dreamt about these during a nap today, so they've reached that mystical Playing Tetris In My Sleep status. Except, in my dreams, one of the cards turned into a black hole and sucked existence through the straw of a terrifying bunny rabbit, and not even Anyanka could stop it. I really hope that needle was one of the clean ones.

    Dark mode is the only mode. Only the heathens who haven't strained their eyes with decades of computer use enable the blighted bright blasphemy of the light theme.
