ProsAlmost everything this requester posts amounts to a great hourly (hourly posted is kind of an average of the different tasks this requester posts, could be more or less depending on hit type/ speed) that will go up as you do more and more of them or really get the hang of them.
Got a random bonus on one task a while back that took longer to bring the hourly up (according to the message with the bonus). was like 25$ or something.
EDIT: also, all of these batches are kind of related that have been coming up. You're either working on beginnings, middles, or endings of short stories. Kind of interesting. It's funny after doing one batch too, to see one's own work or be making edits on it days later.
Would love to know what exactly is being studied, etc.
ConsEDIT: Seems like the number of workers just rushing through/ writing gibberish has gone up again, which kind of makes the job of legitimate workers tougher. Guess it's good that the requester knows what's up and is continuing to eliminate those workers. Hope it was fun whoever's out there doing that. These jobs are so great. Really don't get why you would cheat on a batch that already pays super well and risk 100s of rejections and a hard block. 2/20/19
Only a con for people doing shitty work - requester blocks/ gives quals that block workers for poor work. I actually really appreciate this, as it means fewer and fewer workers have access to these great hits as time goes on.
Of course, I sometimes have to correct people's shoddy work in later hits, but I'm fine with that, as long as the requester keeps blocking and removing workers from the pool(s) of eligible workers....
So to the workers out there doing crappy work to make the hourly, which is already great on these, a little higher, keep copy and pasting without doing any work or submitting shit work. PLEASE. I really mean that. Just means more work for me and the other good workers out here.
Also, some tasks have started having 10k minimum (was even a 50k hit minimum qual the other day on one batch, so get those numbers up!
Advice to RequesterPlease continue to really get rid of workers just submitting crap, etc. Thanks for paying fairly.
Does the story make sense? - $0.25

ProsI really like these HITs. Once you read the instructions and understand what you need to do, these can be done fairly quickly. 1. Read the first part of a short story. 1. Read the second part. 3. Is the second part grammatically correct? 4. Does the second part make sense as the story's ending given part one? Do this 5 times. It's a batch and you can do as many as you want. This HIT was approved the same day.
ConsShe lowered the pay from 30 cents to 25 cents which I thought was not cool. If you're a fast reader/clicker these are kind of fun, otherwise, you may not find these worth your while.
Advice to RequesterWhen pay rate is fair or good, lowering it will not encourage good workers to keep doing your HITs.
How are two physical attributes associated ? - $0.03

ProsIt makes you think in an abstract kind of way (I feel like that's a Pro vs mindless surveys!). The instructions are clear and there are some examples.
ConsFor Alexandria, this is a poorly paid job. It requires an amount of thinking and a little typing to defend your viewpoint. Its not a 10 second job where 3 cents is acceptable. Its more like 6 cents or even 8 cents.
The work itself feels very subjective and even with explanations, I'm a bit worried about rejections. I won't do any more until these are approved.
Advice to RequesterIncrease the pay to account for 30 seconds per HIT at minimum wage. You'll get better data when people have a few extra seconds to think it through, not just flying through trying to make $5 per hour!
