    I haven't been able to find an answer on my own and would appreciate the help. What would be considered the better setting for the number of hits scanned using MTS or hit forker. To me, it seems that the lower the number the quicker the scan, but it seems that I can't find a sweet spot. Any insight would be welcomed.

    100 is the largest number of HITs MTurk will return in 1 request, so there's no point in having it any lower.
