ProsThere's an option to continue onto a separate, though still related study for additional compensation.
ConsRe-vamping this to make more concise:
I completed this HIT on September 13th, and there was an additional study I could complete after this initial one of $.17. The second one was for $.55. When I tried to submit this HIT, it was giving me a "no feedback provided" error of some sort and regardless how I changed the selections it wouldn't clear. I was given the option to override and submit, so I did. This HIT was rejected afterwards and since then I've made multiple attempts to reach the requestor in hopes of having this rejection reversed. I have not received any response back to any of my politely worded messages, however, have received the $.55 bonus for the second study and a $1.00 bonus on September 27th. I'd much rather have the rejection reversed or a response from this requestor on the why they can't/won't reverse this rejection. I've completed multiple HITs from this requestor before without an issue, so this has been very disappointing. They're not obligated to respond, but it's certainly disappointing for things to play out this way.
TL/DR: If you receive a "no feedback error" when attempting to submit one of their HITs, just return it. I did provide feedback but it didn't register for some reason. This requestor will not respond to any messages nor will they reverse your rejection. If you're cool with receiving bonuses but taking the hit to your approval rating then that's your call. Frankly, it's not worth it and I regret bothering to submit this HIT.
**UPDATE: To my surprise this rejection has been reversed. I received the following response from this requestor:
Apologies for this, a member of the team was managing this, and should have communicated with you directly. I've since reversed the rejection, which was what should have happened after your first message: I apologise sincerely for the error, and appreciate you writing to us.

Game is somewhat fun and detailed
Performance based bonus
ConsThere is a LOT of reading with the most infuriating quiz setup. If you miss any of the comprehension questions, you have to reread the instructions and wait at least 30 seconds because of a timed reading page. The study won't even tell you what questions you missed, and tells you to go back to the instructions or leave the study, so there is a chance of getting kicked out without compensation here.
There are timers for every round of the game. There are 45 rounds, and there is at least a 10 second timer for every round, so the game itself is tedious. It's annoying having to wait that long just to submit your choices every time.

ProsThe surveys from Positly can range from trash to fire. This one is in the 'good' range. A good way to tell is if it is like this one and is a semi high value hit. As long as it doesn't have writing it will likely be decent.
No writing in this hit so it was great.
The no code system is kind of neat and works well imo with the optional feedback section at the end of every hit from them.
ConsThe survey layout on these is still a bit annoying and I hate it a bit every time. I still hate the way that they screen hits it is unnecessary but they aren't going to change I guess.
The timer could be longer as well I guess.
