A high percentage of those who apply to hop hubs for pay on Mechanical Turk are turned down because they do not pass the qualification test. Any hubber can hop hubs if they want to (unpaid of course), but HP may adjust or ignore their ratings if they do not match with those of their "Gold Panel." My question is, if I've been turned down on Mechanical Turk, is it of any value to HP for me to hop hubs, or am I just wasting my time?
I got turned down on mTurk and I frequently do hop Hubs, I just use the old version of the Hopper so that I can leave comments and follow the Hubber if I want to. Truthfully, I just use it as a way to find interesting new Hubs, anyway. Hopping gives us the opportunity to vote Hubs up or down and report any violations we find, so that's a good benefit to HP.
I enjoy hopping hubs when I have the time to do so. I like the old classic hopper best. I haven't considered mechanical turk. I simply enjoy reading other people's hubs in hopes of learning something new and finding other hubbers with my same interests to follow.

I'm curious as to whether there has been a decrease in hubbers using the hub hopper to rate hubs. I just have a feeling there is because my hub scores haven't been fluctuating as much (which is fine with me). Overall,...

I really don't like the "new" hopper and have not bothered to hop hubs since it came out several months ago. In the spirit of helping to clear up the backlog, however, I gave it another shot tonight.The...

I like hopping hubs, learning new things and meeting other hubbers. However, I have absolutely no interest in reading hubs on religion, politics, poems, fictional stories or some far away place I will never visit so I...
