    Does anyone do hits that pay nothing?

    Other than qualification hits?

    I don't think many of us do. They mostly make people angry.

    I've seen some labeled as volunteer work to support a cause though. If I found something very important to me I would want to help, but I think this sort of thing is pretty rare. I liked the ones about counting the number of chickens in each cage, and I'm not so worried about pay on those (they weren't zero, just a little underpaid).

    It's mostly what you expect - cheap requesters hoping we'll throw them some free work. Maybe some do them in hopes it will lead to more work, but this is doubtful.

    I did one once just to see if it would unlock a secret bonus treasure.

    I've done maybe a total of ten non-paying HITs, either because they're charity things, or because they're super funny and the "poor research student" was very convincing in that they were, in fact, a poor student, and the HIT was easy.

    I haven't noticed any yet for charity, but now that you mentioned it, I'll look once in a while.

    Majority of those are for internal workers

    I would rather wipe my anus with sandpaper then work for someone paying nothing. They need to take them down. Also if they have internal workers then get a internal site.
