Pros-If you're consistent, you get a bonus.
-The block on their record seems to be the Requester trying out how to block people from doing more after 60 hits, not permablock them. They have a new qualifier to do it now. Some batches allow 100.
-If they relist the hit, very often, you can do more than 60, since the batch ID is different.
-The important phrases are shaded a darker green.
-Mostly quick approval.
Cons-If you get an inconsistent summary, you have to write 5-10 words explanation, and will take longer
-Some articles are long, with key points throughout.
-They will SPAM your email with bonuses. Check spam folder if you haven't gotten anything.
-Blocks and unpaid bonuses reported.
-Some batches and bonuses sit unpaid forever.
-There are throttles. If you speed too much, they will just let your entire batch go to automatic approval (30 days), and you get no bonus.
Advice to RequesterIf you answer your emails, we can do even better work for you.

Prosleaving this here since I can't review the main batch...
Conssince the requester revoked my qual, after i'd done a a couple thousand of these over the course of a month or so. they were very communicative at first and paid the stated bonus within a week or so normally for every hit completed that matched their requirements stated in the HIT description (which fluctuate slightly from batch to batch). however, after doing a several hundred one night back in december they let them all go to 30 day AA, disqual'd me, and suddenly forgot how to e-mail. no response after several contact attempts. by my reckoning they owe'd me at least $25-30 in bonuses off that batch. be wary of these folks.

ProsThese are way underpaid, even if they include a 5 cent bonus, they still are not worth the time if you are actually putting any effort into the task.
EDIT: These pay a 20c bonus. Worth the time now!
ConsGot my qual removed after 2 days due to "quality control standards". I have 50,000+ hits and 58 rejections in total, and take pride in doing accurate work. Some of the labels are up for a bit of interpretation, so you may get your qual dropped if they aren't in line with what the requester was thinking.
Advice to RequesterI have loved FlyingFish HITS in the past, but improvements can be made. Provide more specific instructions, a longer time to review the HIT so that we aren't forced into skimming through everything in hopes of completing the tasks in time, and communicate pay structure better if you want to have better quality work from us. Also, reply to messages sent by turkers because it usually means the worker is going above and beyond to try to give you quality work, and when you don't respond, it sends the message that you really just don't care. Let us give you your money's worth instead of just blocking good workers without any attempt at providing feedback.
