Thread: Expired HIT problems...

    Expired HIT problems...

    Hey everyone, I'm a newbie here and on Mturk. I'm not sure if this is where I should post this but I just feel like I need to vent. I'm frustrated with this HIT I accepted days ago (maybe a week? Can't remember) that gave me 15 minutes to complete a survey. Well, I ran out of time and it expired. I was less than 5 minutes late but that's irrelevant. I don't like to be rushed and try to do my best to submit quality work. I completed the survey but I couldn't submit my completion code so I sent this requester a message.... Still no response. Not looking like I will ever get one either. I saved my code and still have it but it looks like it's all for naught. It was only $2.00 but now I feel scammed like I did work for free or something. I don't want to do another HIT for this requester again but I can't even remember their name since I can't see my sent messages and can't see my expired HITs. All I remember was that is was for the University of Manitoba.
    Anyway, that's all for now. Thanks for letting me vent and I'm sure a lot of you can relate!

    It's a huge frustration. I've done that many times. Some reply and set up a dummy HIT to pay me, but many don't.

    Most Turkers submit with a note explaining that they will send the code later. Few reject, but it is a risk. I am not a risk taker, so I don't do that. You have to decide if you'd rather risk rejection or non payment. You also might want to avoid HITs with short timers.

    Yes, I will definitely be more careful next time. I was keeping up with the timer as I was doing the survey and then I saw it getting close to the end and I kind of started to panic as the questions kept coming. I thought maybe I could finish it just in time... Nope.

    Hopefully,they will at least allow for more time for people to do their surveys in the future since I brought it to their attention in that email. Assuming that they saw it, that is.

    Hopefully. I've had them contact me after a very kind time. It could still happen.
