Hello fellow Turkers! I've been turking for about 9 days now. Tommorow will mark the end of my probationary period. My method of turking thus far has been to get my numbers up, but also make money doing it. I understand that some of you would rather suggest I do safe batch hits, but the way i see it, I'd much rather get to 1000 approval rating by doing hits that pay at least decent arund 10 cents a hit and up. Don't get me wrong, i've done a couple of 1 cnters that i knew would not take a long time to complete but on average I aim for hits that are time efficent and compensate at least 20 cents or higher. I'm here today to ask for a bit of advice or insight into my turking goals. My initial goal for turking is to get to a point where i could make 50 dolllars a day. It would be nice If I could accomplish this in 4 hours or less. I guess time will only tell. The scripts i have installed are as follows: Turkopticon Turkmaster (Which for some reson is not working at the moment/I will have to trouble shoot it) Hitscraper with EXPORT MTurk HIT Database MK.II MTurk Header Expanded Info - update Pending Earnings MTurk I/D Copy and paste Now today was the first day of me using Hitscraper. I found it to be slightly more effective than turkmaster, but when i get Turkmaster back on i think i will try them both simultaneously. I've heard the belief that Hitscraper is bestf or batches. In my daily turking I'm doing mostly surveys, question style hits (typed responses required, and sometimes simple low paying batches where a simple task is required. I find myself scared to accept another hit in a batch if i'm not sure wheather or not i can do another one. Is there a way to tell if I can do another hit in a batch without the requester Grinching? lol Also, I've found out that its nice to keep my queche filled within reason. As long as I can see that the time alloted is enough to complete the task i will go ahead and accept about 5 in a row maybe more depending on the type of task and time alloted for all. There were a couple of times where i had to return hits. Oh and I'm really careful about my approval rating. The first time I got rejected was because i didn't read one of the questions at the end which was an attention check and in a way i'm glad that happened to me, because in every survey now I read every question, and I still can move fast. Can someone point me in the direction or the name of the script that allows you to select the radio options faster. I think it's some type of hot key script. Would be much appreciated thank you. tweaking and testing on my end to see what works with me as far as turking but I'm willing to learn. I've followed the daily threads here and there, but have not as much as i should. Quite frankly, I don't really see the point in it. Most of the hits i find that are posted only have one available or if not, they ar quickly snagged up. i am starting to notice a pattern in the surveys that allows me to work faster. The attention checks are also quite obvious and dI can also begin to tell when a survey is going to be hellishly long, lol. Overall i'm learning. I'm hoping that once i get to 1000 hits that more hits and more money will open up to me, but I will see. What was your guys experience after the first 1000 hits? I am going to be watching a couple youtube videos on the panda and see how I can incorporate that into my routine. I've also noticed that their seems to be more and better paying hits which i qualify for in the morning like after 8am. Maybe part of turking is luck,, but I do believe that there ae some things I'm just going to have to figure out for myself. Anyway, I was just really sharing my process and what ive noticed and learned. Maybe there is somebody out there that can help me with some advice or insight that I havent been privy to. Feel free to let me know, thanks guys. This really is a great community. If you'd like more information about me, I posted my introduction to this forum a couple of days ago: https://turkerhub.com/threads/whats-good-broskies.636/ Thanks.
