An Explanation for what the "Thanks for Your Hard Work!" message means, and why you might be seeing it even if more work appears to be available.
I recently added a topic addressing this to our list of "task basics", but I wanted to make this as visible as possible.
Right off the bat, if you are seeing a message thanking you for your hard work, and telling you to feel free to work on another task instead: you have done the maximum amount of work on that task. It is not a glitch. It means what It says. Not all of our tasks allow you to do the same amount of work. Not all of our tasks reset their work limits at the same time. If we could show you a calendar letting you know exactly when the work limits would be reset, we would, but there are any number of reasons why we can't keep it to an exact schedule.
One of the big reasons for this is that we can't reset a task until we have collected the amount of data that we need. You might be wondering why we'll only let you work on a task a certain number of times, when it seems like we need it done many more times, and the numbers do not seem to be going down.
The reason for this, is that if we let a small section of hard workers do huge percentages of the tasks, we'd end up with useless data, it would be a pointless exercise.
Unfortunately, the fact is, for many of our tasks to run properly, we really can't take in that much data from a single person. We just don't need it, it we can't really get anything useful out of running a task if a small subset of hard workers are doing 100+ of the same task (and in doing so, essentially answering the same questions over and over again), it corrupts our datasets.
The basic method we use to collect data from all of these tasks is to ask as many people as possible the same question. The more people agree on a single answer, the more certain we can be that that answer is correct. Because of this, we really can't use more than a few answers from one person on one of these, because it makes our data less reliable, it skews it to the opinions of those few workers.
As an example, if we had no work limits, and one person answered a question 90 times, the same way every time, it would look to us like it was probably correct, and like 90 people had agreed on that answer. It would defeat the purpose of putting it to a vote, and we'd be no closer to a right answer than if we had just asked it once.
Basically, what this means is: this is not a problem that needs to be fixed, this is the way the tasks work. If you are getting a message that says you have completed the maximum amount of work on a task, it means you have completed the maximum amount of work on a task, and that we do not need any more work from you on it. It literally means exactly what it says.
We value the contributions that all of you make to our tasks, and we encourage you to continue working on as many different tasks as you're able to. Thanks again for all your hard work
