    They have been inconsistent about it. They have said it does not matter, but those who kept "USA" in the autocomplete for the last two quals all received a message that they passed but should keep in mind that it should be changed to "United States." They received this message while VRAPI was also telling those already with the qual that "USA" was fine. So you may want to change it just to avoid getting the message/adding another flag to your submission, but people have received the qual (including myself!) without having changed it. Even though they were told they should have changed it. Even though it doesn't matter.

    So...yeah.

    On the last qual round I used the autocomplete that had USA. I passed, but they mentioned it in the email that said that I passed....

    "You provided ', Los Angeles, CA, USA', but the correct address was ', Los Angeles, CA, United States'. It is very important that you let the address autocomplete the entry in the future. This should return a result with only the state name abbreviated and without any zipcode. The instructions on the HIT were as follows: Autocompleted Street Address. Don't abbreviate the street address. (e.g. '100 Main Street, San Francisco, CA, United States'. So 'Street' or 'Saint', not 'St'. 'Avenue' not 'Ave')."

    I took out the house number and street on the off chance they used the same place for the new qual.

    I figured as much, but I would have felt like an ass if it turned out they did so went with better safe than sorry.

    On my qual test, I submitted USA and got slapped on the wrist, but still got the qual. I then changed it to United States for an entire year before they told us in the slack that it doesn't matter.

    I'd go with United States for the test, but don't lose sleep if you submitted USA

    I went "United States" because that's what the text above the field said. Seemed like the easy choice to me

    One of your partners disconnected in the middle of the HIT. We won't penalize you for their disconnect, but you did not complete enough of the task to submit the HIT. Please return this HIT and accept a new one if you would like to try again.

    wtf?

    How long does it usually take VRAPI for them to approve the qual?
