    If You've Never Been Here Before...Read This

    Greetings, and welcome to Our Hit Stop.

    We are a community of Amazon Mechanical Turk Workers who have come together here to support one another, share HITS, Qualifications, Scripts, tips, tricks, and a ton of useful advice to make our work easier and more profitable.

    More so than most other sites such as this, we are truly a community. Many of our members have been working together daily for years. That being said, we are definitely not a closed society and are very welcoming to new members who wish to become a part of our group.

    We require very little from our members to get started. The first thing you should do is to register. In order to accomplish this, you only need to click on the link at the top right of any page titled "Login or Register" and follow that along.

    After doing this, your IP address will be personally reviewed by me to make sure that you are, in fact, not a spammer...(not somewhere in Russia...etc.) Upon approval, which should be within 24 hours, but often much faster, you will receive an email welcoming you to the site. At this point, you will already have access to the site and in fact be a Tier 1 Member. You will then receive an email from me with some detailed information about how best to interact on the site and get started.

    You may wish to remain a Tier 1 Member for some time. However, at some point, you're probably going to want access to Otto, our feature rich, mTurk Hit finding application. or Otto Lite, a stripped down version of Otto for those who prefer to keep things simple. In order to do this, you must increase your Tier Membership Level. Tier levels commonly available to members are 1-3. There are other special Tiers for moderators, developers, etc...for example as Administrator, I am a Tier 9.

    To Increase your Tier Membership Level, all you'll need to do is contact me at [email protected] to request a Membership Tier Upgrade.

    Our current, available Tier levels are :

    Tier 1 : Free Membership Level for New Members
    Tier 2 : A $10.00/month Membership including access to Otto Lite
    Tier 3 : A $15.00/month Membership including a choice of access to Otto, or Otto Lite, and the ability to participate in Beta Testing (when in progress) of future developments.
    My goal is to build a life that I don't need a vacation from.

    What Now ?

    Once you've taken a look and registered, I'd suggest that you stop in and introduce yourself here
