      I'm super new to the forum (and OTTO) and I have done MTurk for awhile. I'm not very good at it though. I have a 1 requester I work for religiously and a few random pulls on panda I figure I should probably be a part of something (like a forum) and attempt to be a part of a community lol

        Welcome, I am new too. For now, I mostly lurk. I have been on mturk for over a year now. But I am not that technical. So I joined this forum so I could find out more about what I should do.

        We are so glad you have joined us JHkerriokey and Alexkr. I am not around as much as I used to be because of a new job, but I love my forum friends and no matter how little I work on mturk I still come here to check up on everyone.

        it takes forever to load, but its passive. The hit itself was 25ish minutes and not hard, just repetetive

        Thanks, it didn't happen over night though. I think I've been turking since like 2011.... a bunch of breaks in there and never for a full time income.

          You might have been turking longer, I've been turking since 2010 and am just now starting to creep up to 150K.

          I've become horribly picky though. I have bad habits or returning stuff I just don't FEEL like doing. I'm big on easy batches.... which as you've got to know aren't easy to come by and when they do come up they are gone in no time at all. However, my goals are low. Just paying down debt with turking and resale stuff.

            we have started having monthly challenges here, it has helped me be less picky. Some days I am more open to grinding than others

          Does everyone here use OTTO? I started yesterday and honestly I'm still unsure I like it. When you change the requirements in the application you change it on the MTurk page. This means I can't look independently for .05 HITS without changing it every time I go to refresh the page. Any thoughts on that?

            Unfortunately, there's no way around that issue. Otto searches in exactly the same fashion as you would manually. This avoids any issues that might cause trouble with mTurk and is why nobody has ever had problems with their mTurk account because of Otto.

            I would suggest using a scraper like Hit Forker to separately search for low paying Hits....but of course that brings us to the topic of keeping your page request rate down...

            If your computer can handle it, I run OTTO on Google Chrome and pick through hits on Firefox

            I run forker to look for batches and lower paying hits.

            I did at some point, but not currently. I had to keep changing the settings and I guess I just got tired of doing that because?.... I just run a few Panda's now. Thanks for the info though. That makes more sense. I'm not too fond of surveys so maybe OTTO is not for me either

              Otto will change the way you work. If you're open to that, you can make more from it. The beauty of Otto is in the fact that he's looking for Hits WHILE you're doing other Hits, while you're away from the desk, etc. It frees you from staring at the screen all day.
