    Yeah, I feel like I can't get much consistency either. I had a $100 day earlier this week but very little since then. I've been having hours with no hits at all the past few days. QBC has made it so much nicer though.

    Same, though I also don't have Masters and I have the CR Research 2 qual so that's a big hindrance. QBC does help catch a lot of HITs I might miss otherwise, but if anyone has any other pointers it would be a big help.

    The last couple of weeks has been slow for me too. I speculate that it is because of colleges letting out around now. it will pick back up again because it usually does.

    what does qbc do? is this something that I should be worried is taking hits, so I can't catch hits unless I also get qbc?

    QBC will find a hit that meets your criteria and auto create a panda, which is faster than most people can do on their own with forker/mts

    This is entering a seasonally trash time for MTurk, this week in particular. Same last year, and the year before. It's weekly waves, all the summer months are absolutely desolate wastelands at the bookends. So the last few days of a month / first 1.5-two weeks are dead (when splitting things down into yearweeks). Mostly because of holidays (Memorial Day weekend, July 4th), and that first half of August is brutal but early/mid Aug-early Sept is tepid (about how last week was). The bigger issue with Summer is the large (relative) increase in workers. The volume of work doesn't drop as significantly as other portions of the year, but the worker side pressure changes are immense.

    Anyway halfway into Sept and all of Oct is complete yuck. November is generally okayish outside the week of thanksgiving.

    The week of XMas => NYE is statistically not even worth signing on for. NY week tends to actually have a large volume of work which trails off until everything gets back into normal swing.

    The cycles are pretty predictable. Funny enough the biggest oddities are actually "bad" news events when for whatever reason a slam piece on MTurk tends to result in a ton of random stuff being uploaded to the platform :emoji_joy:

    And yes everyone will have a banner "BEST DAY OF THE YEAR" moment on Xmas or w/e, especially closed quals/absolute awesome workers, I'm just speaking to the general volumes of the platform.
