    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.

    Thanks for the information. I did a huge number of scans and I was surprised just how many things depend on numbers. I personally have a favorite number that I have been picking throughout my whole life. It's actually the number 1 or 11. I noticed that the most successful and happy moments in my life happened on the 1st or the 11th. I got curious and decided to read more about this number. You guys can read about it here: <a href="https://www.sunsigns.org/angel-number-1111-meaning/">https://www.sunsigns.org/angel-number-1111-meaning/</a> Hopefully you guys will like it as well.
