    I've got to work to keep myself motivated. I hope I can get some turking done this weekend :-/

    The good news is, I'm now up to $75 or so transferred into my Amazon payments account, so only another $50 or so left to go :-)

    She sent an email to Mechanical Turk, and sent me the link to the MTurk contact page if I don't hear from them soon.

    Again, 10 days isn't the problem, I started doing HITs on 2/2. But, I have only gotten paid for 4 HITs, in each case 10 days after they were approved (one on the 2nd, 3 on the 3rd). I had more that that approved by Feb. 3, but have not seen those yet. Aside from the details in the Payment account, is there any way to see what date a HIT was approved? All I can see in the Dashboard is the day I submitted, plus the status of "Pending Approval" "Approved - Pending Payment" and "Paid."
    The only thing I'm sure of is that it definitely isn't tied to 10 days after the work is done or approved. My payment detail area shows payments from tasks done on 2/29 already in my account.

    EDIT 3/2: sweet - I just crossed $118 - not bad for 10 days of spare time easy work! YAY!

    EDIT 3/4: all approved and "paid" work is now in my account as far as I can tell

    I've made a bit of money (approved) but when I want to transfer it , it says your balance is 0 why ? does it related to what spamgirl said ?

    Yes, there is a delay going from "approved pending payment" to "paid".

    I have two requesters who have been fiddle-farting around since the 7th and 8th of June, respectively. They can't seem to get around to approving my work and potentially paying me. I'm giving them two more days--I'm feeling generous--and then their names go in the Hall of Shame.

    That is not a reason to put them in the Hall of Shame. Requesters have up to 30 days to pay you. If you worked in a traditional job setting you would not expect payment in a weeks time. Although many requesters pay quickly, instant gratification can not be expected. Requesters are people too and don't sit around waiting to approve our hits. Its nice when they do, but I am sure they have plenty of other things to do. The hall of fame/shame should be used for telling us what is good and bad about requesters. For example: majority rules, rejection happy, hits timing out, etc. And on the flip side well set up hits, good paying hits, and quick approvals can go here.

    Aww, yeah, true that. Sorry, I was feeling grumpy for a moment. Now I know.

    I don't know any way in dashboard to see when a hit was approved.
    That is great info. I started on the 4th, and today is the 14th, so I was thinking today would be the day. But since I didn't work for two days, by Amazon's rules, I've only worked 8 days so far, and will need to work two more days. I'm glad I caught this

    Thank you for the post. This is right on time for me. Thanks for the tip.

    Thanks for clarifying that it's total days you do a HIT on, not just how many days that had passed - I would have been very confused in a couple of days (yeah, I took of the 4th doing holiday stuff)

    I have something slightly odd going on- I have only worked for 8 days now, but my HITS have started to be actually paid, rather than just pending payment! $1.50 ish is in my amazon payments account right now, while most is still inaccessible. I figured I would mention it and see if anyone knew what was going on though, as it doesnt fit the pattern I have seen on the forums.

    Perhaps they have reduced the 10 day limit!
