    on this $6 hit I can't get past the attention check where you have to retype 2 long sentences. does anyone know how to fix it?

    edit: I just figured it out. They only put one space between the two sentences. So like after the "." at the end of the first sentence, only put one space not two. I think that might be how they have been teaching it in schools for awhile or something. That's not how I and a lot of other people learned to do it though.

    yeah I know someone told me why they ask for it but I can't remember. it's unnecessary because they could use simple scripts to get that info I thought. so idk why they are asking people to message them with that information. you don't know either?

    Found this with a quick search. It makes sense, but the double space is probably a habit I wont be able to break any time soon.

    "Here’s why: Back when we used typewriters, every character was given the exact same amount of space on the page. That meant the letter i was given the same amount of space as the letter m, even though it clearly didn’t need it. This is called monospaced typesetting and it’s, well, spacey. We needed that extra space between sentences to make it easier to see the beginning of new sentences.

    Word processors and computers and everything that is not a very old typewriter use mostly proportionally spaced fonts, which adjust spacing to the size of the letter. That’s why a proportional font can squeeze 12 letters into the same space where a monospace font can only fit nine"

    I set mine up in 2012 so it's been awhile, but just looking through the steps to change it, it displays whatever you have set up with your main Amazon account. For me, it's my first, middle initial, and last name. If you need to change it, click the link on the Mturk side and it will take you where you need to go.
