    Hello, and I am Jekyll20. Recently I've been trying my hand at Amazon Mechanical Turk because I've run out of options for good jobs to apply for in my are and am currently waiting to be accepted for a few, but I am not expecting to hear back.

    With no career prospects in my area, I have taken to finding work online through turk work and teaching myself web development in hopes of eventually saying up enough money to move to a place that has more job prospects and pay the first month's rent.

    Hey, thank you. Sorry, this forum layout IS a bit different from what I'm used to. I also don't see many other threads by people so I take it this forum is new, but how new exactly?

    Also, I'm not sure where to post a thread for this, but I've recently come across a hit that's pretty confusing. It wants me to pair questions with answers, bu the English isn't very good, and I'm concerned I will mess up. Has anyone ever dealt with these before?

      I have not done these hits before and the requester has no TO rating. If the English is poorly written and confusing I suggest limiting how many of these you do until a few clear.

      Yes. So far, all of them have cleared, but still. I forgot, how did you pull up that information?

      If trying to find out if the hits cleared check on the worker dashboard if you are trying to find the hits go to the dashboard click hits then search be requester.

    Greetings, everyone. New to Mturk and this site. Trying to make sense of Panda crazy as it does not seem to be working for me for some reason, other than that, Ive become familiar and use some other scripts that are helping me dive into the world of Mturk! Looking forward to learning and growing and getting to know folks on here!

      Welcome aboard Beth! I would suggest to take a look at our Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUM...HzbUP3OEmzRy1w
      There is a video on the basics of Panda Crazy hopefully that will help guide you a bit on how to use it. If you are still struggling feel free to just ask on the DHT (Daily Hits Thread), we have all been there at one point and will be glad to help answer your questions and clarify things. I look forward to seeing you around!

    Hey Everyone. I am new to this forum. But I am not new to Mturk. I have been turking on and off for about two years now. I am quite familiar with basics and scripts of the mturk. This COVID-19 has brought me back to Mturk. Its good to be back.

      Glad to have you, I don't say this lightly, but we're probably the most "top-heavy" mTurk forum on the web...that being...we have the largest number of long term mTurk workers you'll find in one place. So, I'm really glad to see you here. You won't see anybody "buying & selling" IDs, fighting, or any of that here, and when one of our members says something, it actually carries a lot of weight. Welcome to your new mTurk home.

    Hello! I am new here. I kept hearing great things about the OTTO app on fb mturk forums and finally decided it was something I wanted to try out. I have been doing this since Oct 2019 and love making extra money so I can stay home with (and homeschool) my kiddos. I cannot wait to see how this can help me reach my goals. I try to be active every day and I love helping others, especially when I know everyone is reaching for the same goals. Anyway, thank you for having me!!

    Hello everyone! I have been turking for about 4 years now. And it has recently slowed down for me. I'm not making what I used to. I had been hearing people talking about Otto in other forums. So I have decided to take the plunge and try it out. I am very hopeful this will help me bring my income back up!

      Well we are glad to have you, we are all here to help each other succeed so hopefully we can help you out. Otto has definitely saved me many times when it is slow and when I'm not feeling like really working I love being able to walk away from the compute without always worrying what hits I'm missing from my scraper. Hope to see you around more on the DHT and let us know there if you have any questions. Always happy to help each other out!

    Hello! I have been turking for 4 years, this year it has really slowed down. I am making 1/3 of what I used to make. Another group I am in raves about OTTO, so I decided to try it and hope that not only I can recoup what I have not made, but not sit in front of my monitor all day/night when I need to do other things while waiting for Panda to sing to me.

      Welcome HondaGirl123! I think you'll find Otto is incredibly helpful, but it is slow right now for everyone. Hopefully as universities start back up we'll be seeing an increase
