    Recently Pinterest has implemented a temporary block system into their batches. If you get too many wrong from their golden pins then they block you from that batch. Many were confused about what we were getting wrong and causing the temporary blocks.

    They added in this link that explains what they are looking for in Rate How Relevant a Pin is to a Query.

    If you notice more explanation links in their other HITs, please link them here.

    And in case you haven't noticed; the have hotkeys already built in to their HITs. Click the ? and a little drop down will show you their navigation keys.

    Instructions for: Identify Inappropriate Search Queries

    The purpose of this task is to identify search terms that we can use in email and marketing outreach. You'll help us remove terms that may be sensitive or controversial for a general audience. We'll provide the search term and a link to Google to research the term.

    • Take time to evaluate each search term
    • If the query might be inappropriate or controversial for some audiences, mark as "inappropriate/controversial"
    • Use your best judgment and be conservative. For example, some people might be offended if they got an email saying “Check out funeral ideas.”
    • Use the Google link If you don’t know what a search term means, since brands or borrowed foreign words like “Häagen-Dazs” or "culottes" could be appropriate queries
    • If the words are gibberish, mark as "inappropriate/controversial"
    • Generally, any topics related to profanity, politics, religion, sex or sexual humor, drugs, guns, violence, war, natural disasters, or tragedies should be considered "inappropriate/controversial"
