    Define "Promptness"

    I have the Opticon add-in and I am fascinated by the promptness rating.... It seems that when a requester is rated 4 or 5 on the promptness scale, I often experience something completely different.

    Is promptness referring to something other than payment?

    I would consider a good Promptness score to be paying within a day or 2 at most. Technically, requesters can set it up to 30 days (which I do not consider prompt). Some might consider a week to be prompt. It is, at best, relative.

    I see some with multiple raters selecting 5 - which indicates to me immediate payment or within a couple hours. But I have hits hanging in limbo from 5's that are days out in various states- some haven't been approved, some are pending payment. I'm really curious how raters make their selections / criteria.

    Prompt is 2-3 days in my opinion.

    I use the following when making my ratings on Turkopticon:

    5 - 24 hours
    4 - 2-3 days
    3 - 4-7 days
    5 - longer than a week
    Eschew obfuscation, espouse elucidation. Batch HITs for newbs. 1000 req'd. 5000 req'd.

    Here is my rating for promptness.

    5* up to 24 hours
    4 * 24 hours to one week
    3* one week to two weeks
    2* two to three weeks
    1* anything three weeks or longer
