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.
