              Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. In a shocking twist of events, the requester I was talking about last week (Gizem Gezici) actually reversed all 55 of my HITs that had been rejected! I was not expecting that based on the TO reviews. It did require a great deal of emailing to get done, but it was worth it. Here's hoping today is full of $$$$$ for all!!!

                Remember those HITs from Requester where you had to decide whether a package was properly framed? My rejection from that was reversed and was paid instead. Yay!

                  Nice! Mine all approved last night, so now I can stop checking for rejections every ten minutes.

                  Now I'm wondering if there was a glitch or something. I'll probably try them again if I get the qual, but we'll see.

                  I think it would be very helpful to all of us if you started a new thread called "dealing with rejections" and input all of the information you used to get 55 rejections reversed. We can also add our own tricks and experiences to get rejections over turned.

                    I'd say to put something like that in the FAQ area...something like "How to deal with Rejections"

                    Okay, I'd be glad to, I'm just not sure what exactly my experience can add aside from the obvious tip to email the requester and ask them nicely to explain the reason for the rejection. Is there a different takeaway that others are getting from this?
