[OBJECT X and Y] Write a pair of English sentences (v1b3) - $0.50
$4.18 / hour
00:07:11 / completion time
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.
Which is more plausible? (binary choice question) - $0.02

ProsComes in large batches.
ConsHit keeps being lowered. Went from 3 cents for one question, to 2 cents for one question or 3 cents for two questions, now is 2 cents for two questions.
No longer worth the pay, hopefully not a trend and also hopefully people draw the line somewhere.
Advice to RequesterYou have been a good requester. Please don't become one that starts lowballing mturk workers.

ProsGood pay if you're paying attention once you get the hang of how to phrase the sentences. Paid out the day of.
ConsTakes a lot of focus. Sometimes you get a topic to write about that's really difficult to think about something for.
