ConsMan I'm not even sure where to begin.
Alright so the pay is supposedly sitting at 10.50 an hour that will be bonused to me. There might be a higher bonus depending if my ad did well or not. I do say my ad because I did 4 rounds of this and I did all the work in all of them. In the first two rounds I participated with what seemed to be real people as they did not do a fucking thing and the first dude just whined about the time we had versus doing the work. the second person just said what I did was fine. The last two rounds I just worked by myself.
Now, I personally am not typically willing to work for 10/hr ish, but I have worked for these dudes in the past and I liked the experience so I thought I'd give this a whirl. It wasn't hard, but there is going to be a large variation of work/annoyance going into these it looks like.

Wait for other people with a 'helper bot' that asks you a neverending series of questions. It doesn't matter how many you answer or how you answer the questions, it's just there to waste your time.
Timed chatroom sessions of 10 minutes long each so you can come up with an ad with your group. You do this 4 times with different groups each time.
ConsI was booted out after one task and 20 minutes, and they said I would be compensated for my time. I only got the base pay and nothing else, so I was basically working for less than half the minimum wage, which is inexcusable for Stanford's standards.
Even if you do the entire thing it's still very underpaid for how much effort you have to put into the task.
There is no way to report chatroom members that don't contribute at all, which is stupid.
Avoid this HIT and consider blocking the requester, they've gone to shit recently.

ProsMy HIT was going to expire after I had rated 900+ images (100 qualifier, and then 800+ which included another 100 training). I took screenshots and used the "It's Broke" process to submit. It did say "uploading" while submitting and I sent the requester a note.
Followup: I had expected an $8 bonus and got a $7.01, but I'm pretty happy to get anything at all.
ConsThe bonus increased and decreased throughout the 800 images. I'm guessing it will decrease if you don't keep a streak going (which also means the images flash for only 10ms?) But that was pretty disheartening to watch while I was also watching my HIT timer clock down and realizing I'd spent an hour on something I may not get credit for.
