    Well I'm new to both MTurk in general as well as this forum.

    I've been doing this 1 or 2 weeks, but only now researching more on MTurk.

    Honestly, I don't understand most of it.. I know scripts make it easier, but it seems like it's still missing stuff. (MTurk site)

    There's no list or option to search for requesters. I've got to click "Take Test" on an offer from a requester.
    Info:
    Age: 27
    Sex: M
    Location: USA
    Mturk Experience / Skill / Knowledge Lvl: Beginner
    Contact info: Ask me for Discord if needed.

    I'm not, at the moment, able to upload a pic of me for my avatar, so I hope this one will do until then.
    If not, I will remove it.

    Well I think that's it. I hope this was a good intro. See you all around and good luck.

    Here's a post I wrote for someone else as an intro to using scripts
    If you know a requester name you can search for them in the search box at the top of the page. If you see a hit from a requester and want to see more from them, you can click their name on the search results page to show everything that they have available right now.

    As for the "Take Test" thing, I think you're referring to a qualification. Requesters add quals to hits to limit the people who work on them to those that meet certain criteria. Some quals you can take a test to get, others are given out after completing other work for the requester, some are based on how much work you've already done on the site, and some are given out by MTurk.

    Speaking of which, you should do the hits by this requester https://worker.mturk.com/requesters/AXKBO5V1Y75RL/projects?ref=w_pl_prvw

    If nothing shows up under that link open "Filter" at the top of the page and change the reward to Pays at least 0. Those hits are used by Mturk to give out demographic quals that requesters sometimes use.

    Welcome!

    Lots of HITs tend to dissappear as quick as they come.


    Always be sure to check out the daily work thread, where most of the general discussion ( And most of the surveys worth doing) get posted throughout each day. https://turkerhub.com/forums/daily-mturk-hits-threads.2/

    You'll get the hang of it, especially with the assistance given on the daily forums, and also make sure to check out TurkerView when you do catch tasks! A good way to make sure you aren't wasting time on a poor hourly (I've only been doing this for a year and my first few months I was doing ANYTHING for a dollar...mind out of the gutter people)
