    This isn't fair, I drank my caffeine and it still isn't working. :coffee:

    time for a (hopefully) 20-minute nap, with the hope the caffeine will kick in by the time I get up....

    Try going for a jog instead. Oversleeping tends to make people even sleepier and lazier. What you really need to do is get the blood pumping instead of resting.

    I have some questions!
    I spent ALL weekend with watchers active on TurkMaster, a huge list of watchers. I did not catch even one.
    I have to pay bills and I'm freaking out.
    Is there a way to find out if a HiT is dead in the water?

    Are you using pandas? Also wouldn't recommend relying solely on mturk for income when the bills come knocking, try looking into other online work platforms as well.

    Oh my. Switch to Panda Crazy, MTS, Overwatch or a mix of them. Turkmaster is old and no longer supported. Sorry, boo. :ba:

    Maybe the "huge" is the problem. I do not run more than 4-5 panda at the same time.

    I have auto-accept on all of them. Still nothing. I also work on Prolific but you know how spotty that can be.

    Sometimes that's just the way it falls. There's no real way to tell if the HIT you're going after is totally empty or if somebody might return something. There's a lot of luck of the draw in this.

    Also @Sneaky Taffer I delete my pandas daily except for batches/trickles that I do daily. Or big money hits that may post again. mturk is a revolving door with the hits, you gotta switch 'em out a lot.

    Hey all, just to clear up some confusion.

    Last Thursday we ran a big survey hit. We then randomly divided the people who did the survey into two groups for a research project we're working on.

    We then ran swarms for just the first group, consisting of half the people who did that survey. That set of swarms just concluded a few minutes ago.

    The second half of people who took the swarms are going to be qualled over the next day or so, with swarms for that group to take.

    Just to be clear too: there's a setting when we do our hits that sets them so they won't ping a HIT scraper or similar plugins unless you have the qualification. So if you didn't see any of our hits this morning or on Friday but you were around, assume that you're in the second group, and we'll be doing swarms with you soon!

    I hope that helps, and I can't tell you all how much we appreciate your help with this project we're running!
