noticed the credit change today ... I think the task is simple, and the 1 credit per task was too high. It's taken me a long time to get the credit I have also, so the credit change was appropriate and I agree with other comments above about credit/effort/time. However, I spent an hour typing yesterday, and only 5 minutes today!! So, .125 is now worth a lot of work for all that typing. Double-however, I like that credit amount ... and a difficult choice for the Capt'n most certainly.

When I started I thought of it like a typing test, so I only got a few incorrect that I noticed. Then I saw a big factor for incorrect was missing a special character or number - those are the ones I get wrong when not being careful.

Limit would be ok, but then again this is like Stardust (but much easier!) ... people with more free time will sit there for hours, then will eventually get bored. It's for a good cause, the credit is nice, however if someone wants to do this for hours on end to get credit then the task is getting completed anyway. My two cents ... and thanks for the cool little side project Capt'n! Aaarrggh!
