    They're often internal or bonus structure HITs - I can't imagine running 0 cent HITs for numbers alone, plenty of penny HITS for that.

    A lot of those have a qual like Internal Workers. Unless it is something that pays by bonus, I would never do a 0 pay hit. That just lets a requester know they can get away with paying nothing, or very low pay, to get their work done.

    Agreed. I was just wondering. Even last night when I wanted to get my submitted HITs up past 500 I didn't do them.

    Currently, the fanciful belief that they will lead to a lucrative closed qualification is a popular reason.

    Some do like Content Research but 99% do not. The ones that do will say it is a qual at least.
