- HIT Rejected
ProsSimple, write description of video in at least ten words.
ConsSome videos slower to load.
1 of 10 hits completed was rejected, the others were paid. Reason given was 1 did not meet requirements. While this is possible I did try to ensure each description met the 10 word minimum and was phrased according to the rules.
I have emailed the requester and will update with the results and rate communication once that has been completed.
I contacted the requester to inquire about the issue with the hit which was rejected. I was extrememly polite, I explained that knowing what went wrong with the hit would allow me to adjust my response to meet his/her needs more fully. I also offered to correct the error I made and all the typical rejection appeal tactics one would expect. It has been over 3 days and there has yet to be a response. I understand that requesters are not required to communicate with us, however, an unwillingness to reach out to the worker base when posting batch work is just a huge red flag to me. Given that I completed multiple hits and there was only an issue with 1 of them leaves me unable to complete further work if I don't understand where I went wrong.

ConsThese do take way longer than you think they would, as another reviewer pointed out. The instructions are not super clear, and the requester does not say that there is only ONE correct answer - so beware! Completed 10 of these and 2 were rejected. I would seriously say to avoid these unless there's absolutely nothing else to do.
Advice to RequesterClarify that there is only ONE right answer choice. Provide more examples that are helpful for ambiguous questions. Also, do not be so generous with rejections on already underpaid work - make allowances for lesser mistakes or where the questions were ambiguous to begin with.

ProsDid one after studying the instructions before accepting HIT. Was pretty simple and quick. Pay seems pretty good.
ConsDirections are a bit confusing. You've got to have decent copywriting and editing skills to do this properly. Requester does reject (though no history of rejection on this HIT in particular) so I'm hesitant to do more until I get approved.
