    Whether you're a new Turker, wide eyed and bushy tailed to hop on the best batches, or a grizzled vet who has seen more Brelig pay drops than you can remember we're happy you've joined TurkerHub :)

    In order to make the best of your first impression here there are a few simple things you may want to include in your post:

    1. An Avatar - Nothing says hello like a smiling face, and while you're welcome to take a quick selfie really anything that represents you and your personality will be the perfect addition to an introduction post :) Usernames can be really hard to remember without a picture (face) to attach them to, and some of us are old / forgetful so help us get to know you!
    2. You - Drop a few cool details about your life / goals in your post. Most folks here making good money on Turk started like everyone else, tirelessly working away on HITs trying to learn the ropes and if we have a better idea of your goals/time commitments you'll have a much better experience.
    That's it. Pretty simple :) Soon you'll be surrounded by tons of Turkers all chanting "One of us! One of us!" - just don't drink the Kool-Aid!

    It's a good idea to start your own introduction thread in this section of the forum. That way we can give you a more personalized welcome and answer questions you may have :)

    Hi everyone! I just read about Turkerhub on Reddit and thought it would be a great place to chat with others and maybe get some tips on how to increase earnings. I stay at home so this is just a way to get some extra cash!

    hi - Thanks for the warm welcome. Been doing Turk work a couple years now. Hoping to learn a few tricks. Would especially like to know how to stay away from researchers who mis-treat workers (low pay, slow pay, rejection for no valid reason).

    Hey everybody! I've been turking for a little over 2 weeks and just found this forum to join.I'm trying to learn better ways to earn more money faster. I'm turking for a lot... debt, bills, savings, rainy day. I'm a mom of 3 (and a half) and a full-time worker so this helps to earn extra cash on the side without having to be out of the house and away from my family.

    Hi, this is Hamza a computer science student, my goal was to save for fees of my upcoming tuition fees so I started looking for job few months ago even with my best efforts couldn't find a decent job, then I started turking and it was very good experience, heard a lot of good things about TurkerHub, just joined it hoping to learn more and improve myself, I hope I'll get guidance from my experienced fellows, really enthusiastic about this experience!

    Hi, All! I've heard of this forum for a while now and just never got around to signing up. I've been turking for a couple of years now in my spare time, just to earn a little extra to treat the fam to an occasional outing. I'm looking forward getting to know you, and taking part in what looks to be a stellar community! :emoji_relaxed:
