    Bic66 were you asking me how I posted the link to the HIT the way that I did? Like this?
    Title: Demographics survey | Accept
    Requester: Panos Ipeirotis [A3DL93QTPE513P] Contact
    TO: [Pay=4.42] [Fast=4.68] [Comm=5.00] [Fair=4.92] [Reviews=64] [ToS=1]
    TO2: [Hrly=9.87] [Pen=0.19] [Res=null] [Rec=100] [Rej=0] [ToS=0] [Brk=0]
    Reward: 0.10
    Duration: 1:00:00
    Available: 1
    Description: Demographics survey
    Qualifications: None

    (BTW, you can do this HIT once every 30 days. Quick and easy.) If you use MTS, when you scroll through the mturk hits page, there's a little yellow arrow next to each hit title. Click that and select BBCode. It copies the hit information, and you can paste it into the forum. If you want to copy one you see on Hit Forker, click the vB button next to the hit titles and then you can paste it here.

    Bic66 I wanted to check on you and see if you knocked out a few hits? How is it going?

    I think a lot of those take a few days for Amazon actually update on their end. Also you probably have to sync MTS as well. I only use MTS for hit tracker and do a 45 day sync every few days.

    Welcome and glad to have you! It can be intimidating to start off especially when you know your approval is a huge make or break, specifically when you are first starting out. Many of us have been turking for many years (I'm on 10 years myself). My best advice is to go with a safe requester to start off. MLDataLabeler is a very safe requester. I have done over 10K probably closer to 20K hits from them an never a rejection. They will take about 5 days to approve. Also 411Richmond and Ibotta are safe requesters to start to get your numbers up with although their hits are not as abundant and frequently posted as MLDataLabeler. I would go ahead and do your profile information hits. There are 10 hits posted from Amazon Mechanical Turk Team titled Profile Information and what they are looking for in each of those. They are 0.00 pay but you will at least have your first 10 hits logged (and it will help you qualify for other hits some requesters use).
    We all have to start somewhere and the sooner you start logging hits the sooner you have money in your pocket!
    Well. Completed 8 of the Profile Information hits. Went over to qualifications in MTS and after review, a great deal of information was incorrect! FB account, for example? Said value of '0'. Of course I've a FB account. Credit Cards, I clicked radio button for a 'Yes'... value posted in column is '0' for a no. Just a couple examples.

    First two errors I clicked 'request retry' Said up to 5 minutes... thoughts? Thanks, folks. A day for the journal...

    Thank you witch1 Truth. Btw... can you possibly tell me how to include someone's comment in my post reply? See below. Some folks on forums I've strolled really get annoyed if the quoter isn't included in reply. I tried checking the box and selecting 'post reply' above and it did not include the person's comment (zeldafoot). Eternally grateful...

    Heh, Fisherman is right, get comfortable with doing hits on the regular and then get Otto - you'll be so glad you did

    I completely get where you're coming from on a soul level! I have over 30,000 hits and 99.87% approval rating and a rejection pretty much freezes me for a day or two. If it makes you feel better you ARE going to get a rejection unless you don't work. There are some fantastic requesters that rarely, if ever, reject that you can do to pad your numbers.
