    Requester just now learning about these forums

    Hi, I work for a company that started to use Turk for certain tasks this year and we're slowly coming around to the fact that these forums are active and useful to the Turk community. My company's gotten some flack for setting prices that are too low for the work that we've tasked out, and I was wondering about the nature of work that you guys most prefer, or what's the kind of HIT that you folks hate the least. We're looking to up our use of Turk in the future and want to get ahead of the curve by reaching out to Turkers now rather than later.

    So far we've had Turkers do some custom Google searching, transcribe images, and manipulate photos for us, with varying degrees of success. I'd say the transcriptions are the easiest for people, and the photo manipulation is the most arduous. We're looking to do something that randomizes pairs and asks Turkers to tell us if this pair makes sense or doesn't make sense; a simple binary task. What do you guys think?

    Welcome to Turker Nation! Different people like different kinds of tasks, but we all like fair pay. The task you describe sounds like something I might like, providing it comes with clear instructions and examples so I don't agonize over my decisions.

    Hi, welcome to our forum. As Rosie said, different people like different tasks. Some people will do every task they can do if the pay is fair. Some of the very best requesters post their new hits on our Daily Hit thread (you can do that once a day as a requester) and then stay around on the thread to get immediate feedback on quality of instructions and pay. Turkers can ask you questions and say what they want about the pay. Once you get the specific task going successfully, you don't need to hang around any more.
