    Thank you for sharing so much helpful information about this pair of HITs. Just wanted to clarify that you do get your performance bonus, and... your waiting room bonus, even if something happens and you end up missing the time limits on a few pages. It's just the $4.00 "active participation" bonus that you miss out on if too many pages are left without a response. I know it sucks that the $4.00 is withheld for "active participation" but I've tried a lot of different ways to keep everyone moving through the game at a good pace, and this was one of the most effective. I really just don't want people getting stuck waiting forever for others to catch up, which is also why we have the strict time limits.

    Thank you for your honest review. The game should take 60 minutes on average once the group is formed. I pay for the time you wait for the group to form, and that rate is based on the CA Fed Wage ($15/hr). I understand the frustration with the variable wait times. I've taken as many precautions as I can to make this HIT as painless as possible, but it is very difficult to coordinate groups of 6 people, so I'm sure I fall short sometimes. The timers on each page are the only way for me to keep the game moving , and prevent groups from being held up by one player taking too long. I understand these are stressful, but I haven't figured out a better workaround to keep the game moving. I also understand how difficult and tedious the task feels, especially compared with other HITs that tend to be much shorter. Unfortunately, this is really the simplest and least tedious version of the procedure that I can use if I want to test the specific hypotheses we are focused on in this project. And, regarding the pay rate, I do wish I could pay more. I've thrown in my personal savings to increase the pay rate, because I actually don't have enough funding to reach the $15/hr average I'm trying to come up with for you guys. I do apologize if you feel the pay was unfair.

    Pros:
    Description: Live investment game. Instruction, 2 practice rounds, 10 actual rounds, another 10 round with additional feature, 1 page questionnaire at end.
    Bonus is possible, and total is disclosed at end of survey.
    Cons:
    - It's a live game, so waiting around is possible. Forced timers on game rounds.
    - Messed up design; the graph was laid over the chart, so you couldn't read half of any given results pages.
    - You could get screwed by your team members, mine were awesome though. Nice talk about water lol

    A little more unwieldy than the usual checking products on Amazon hits... you have to search for this manually, no link provided.
