Default M*Turk (just venting!)

I could earn more if my HITs were not sitting in "pending" for days.

I am not allowed to work on certain ones until these have been approved.

*Sigh*

Yep, some companies approve much faster than others!

In my time working there (several years now) I've found it all works out in the end...

Some companies do edit much faster than others. I did just go through and edit a bunch of articles with one company today, but I think with many editing is a multiple stage process. Each level of editor is looking for specific things based on a checklist and that takes time to work through.

I believe Crowdsource has different levels of editing which makes the process take a bit longer.

If you like MTurks but can't get your HITS approved fast enough, you may want to use other small task sites also like Microworkers.

Have you tried Microworkers LilBlackDress? Do you like it? Do they use Paypal?

I've looked at Microworkers, they pay with Skrill/Moneybookers or Payza. I like that after a set amount of time a client who still hasn't approved your work has to pay up. I wish Mturk would do that. Most of my work last week has cleared, but there's one college study from Monday that's still sitting there.

I really need to look into Skrill more. Last I knew it didn't accept US residents, though they are saying they do now. Payza seems to be newer.

I wish I could say more, but the validation link they say they keep sending to my email never arrives. It doesn't show up in my spam box or in box and I've verified they have the right email, so I don't know what's going on.

Is anyone actually making good money with Mturks? Right now I have a fantastic private client but need to make about 200 more per week than I am. Would this be a good way to do that? Could someone explain to me a little more about Mturk?

Thanks

I recently set up a Skrill/Moneybookers account, in order to receive payment from a client. I've been paid several times, without issue.
