Hi! Thanks so much for this, it's extremely helpful. I'm an academic researcher, and I've been an MT requester for years, but have never tried to use this workaround, so please excuse this probably very basic two-part question. In the past I've recruited workers with certain characteristics relevant to my research in order to get larger samples with the chracteristics of interest. In these specialized HITs, I ask requesters to search for and participate through other HITs linking to the same survey if they don't have the characteristic of interest (e.g., recruitng the control group through a different HIT). I'd like to do this again, using the workaround code to set up each of the HITs. It seems like I can just use the same unique turker code for each of the HITs to ensure that workers can only do one of the HITs, one time (of course making this very clear to workers in the instructions). My first question is, do I use the same .CSV file for each of the HITs? That is, if I want 100 workers split between 5 HITs, should I use the same .CSV file with the link pasted 100 times in each HIT? Or do I create five separate .CSV file with the same link pasted 25 times?
Secondly, when I hit "Publish batch" on a HIT set up according to the super helpful instructions provided in this thread, I don't get a dialogue box asking me to upload a .CSV file at any stage before the final "publish." Did I mess up the code somehow?
Thank you SO MUCH for your help!
