[OBJECT X and Y] Write a pair of English sentences (v1b3) - $0.50
$4.18 / hour

ProsMy times are speeding up as I'm getting used to these. I also like their button that lets you check your work prior to submission, so you can fix it. No rejections so far, with six approved. ~18 hr approval time.
ConsThe 80% overlap measurement seems to be wonky. I'm not sure how they're applying it.
There are way too many rules, for the amount of money these pay. Finagling all of them takes most of your time.
You can't use any of the words on their list, apparently, despite it seemingly being there to help you out.
You can't use variations on a word, even pluralization, without it counting against that 80%.
Paradoxically, you start sounding like a robot in a supposed effort to counter AI!
Advice to RequesterPay more or adjust some of the rules.

The Requester included this note:
Hi there, thanks for trying my qual HIT 'Qual for: Rewrite visual questions+answers into facts'! I looked through people's responses and I appreciated the time+effort y'all spent on it! However, I think I wasn't clear with the instructions so I'm going to reformat the task to make it clearer and upload new qual HITs, hopefully tomorrow. Apologies as reading the instructions+trying out new qual HITs must be really time consuming, here's something to make up for that a little bit. Thanks!

ProsYou basically take what is already written and distill facts from it. The requester encourages copy-and-paste and discourages new and original contributions, so feel free to turn off your brain for the most part. Batches are huge with several thousand HITs apiece. You can tell from his emails and messages that he's a very gracious requester to work for. Well-paid.
ConsVery temporary work, as he only needed it done for a few days. Not all facts are easy to copy-and-paste, and you often have to add verbs like "is" and "are" to each one, which slows down the process some.
