New to Mturk, looking to make some side income (if I can)
any tips for newbies?
Welcome. You won't get masters for a long time. There are some really good turkers here without it. Just work on not getting rejections and learning how to use the common scripts. Info on scripts is around with a little searching.
Hello and welcome.
Make sure to pop over to the daily thread. It's amazing what you can absorb just lurking, but feel free to ask questions and join in the banter.
Here's a beginner's guide to scripts that @CorvusSapiens put together: https://turkerhub.com/posts/636527/ This is a very good place to start.
Make sure to be careful about rejections since you're new, check out reviews before working and be especially careful about doing a large number of hits for the same requester until you build up a buffer of approved hits.
If you're using the polls and your DMs for research purposes - we'd all prefer you to be honest about it.
I'd be happy to be interviewed and give my point of view on the platform if you'd like - but we'll need to be honest with each other.
Best of luck with your research!
