Study on the repeated prediction of events - $1.00 +2.40 bonus
$23.72 / hour
00:08:36 / completion time
- HIT Rejected
Pros- Potential bonus based on choices
Cons- REJECTION WITHOUT MESSAGE
Will update if I receive anything from the requester
Update: Requester realized they made a mistake, but told me that they are unable to reverse the rejection due to the third party system that they use. They may a compensation HIT for slightly (60 cents) higher than the value of the HIT as make up... however the rejection will not be reverse which is not worth the 60 cents in my opinion. So beware, if you get rejected, your fault or not, it will not be reversed by this requester.
Study on group decision-making (real-time interaction with other MTurk workers!) - $1.50
$12.19 / hour
00:07:23 / completion time
ProsOne of the laziest group studies I've ever done. You and 6 other participants try to all pick the same color. The catch: you can't see what all of the other participants have picked, only a few. You have 50 rounds to get it right.
I'm sure this would have been interesting. However, one person went inactive in the very first round, cancelling the whole study. So they paid me $1.50 to wait and then have the thing cancelled. The money was appreciated, but I feel bad for the poor researchers!
ConsDependent on other people's attention to complete. As mentioned above, you still get paid even if someone drops out.

ProsFast Approval and bonus email a few minutes later!
There's a waiting bonus, .50 cents for 10 minutes, there weren't enough other players so I couldn't make the actual task bonus which could have been a lot better.
ConsI only got to read the instructions and then I waited in the lobby for 10 minutes waiting for other workers to join (which didn't happen), and playing their included "Snake" game while waiting, if the window loses focus for more than 20 seconds during the 10 minute waiting period you don't get paid.
