    ...I do not normally wig out but the MTurk climate is getting ridiculous lately. Closed quals for batch work and surveys both of which now require Masters that were open to "everyone" for years and years,and because the qual hit is no longer available and I missed it because it was active at 3:00am in the morning my time OR while I was in the hospital or missed it for whatever reason .... surveys with huge amounts of crazy attention checks, and requesters who seemingly derive some sort of joy in using increasingly longer and longer UNPAID screeners because they are too busy (read that thoughtless) to state outside of the survey the needs of their data pool or lack time management skills to make time to learn how to use readily available data screening such as the normal demographics we report to MTurk. All this with shorter and shorter completion times.

    FURTHERMORE the issue of the lack of relatively ADA friendly hits. Those are few and far between ... many requesters do not realize there are those of us who work out of the need to purchase UNAFFORDABLE healthcare needs, medications, bandaging supplies, special skin washes, creams, powders etc. that are mandated by our various maladies, and yet pay out every extra penney we have to make certain we have caregivers who come to our homes to help manage those medical needs. All the extra bubbles scrolling up and down and side-to-side, shuffling of screens, TINY TYPE that we are supposed to read, let alone see changes or variations in postage size images ... Not all ability challenged individuals depend on the goverment dole ... we earn our keep and pay taxes one hit at a time.

    I could go on and on, but all of you among the abled in our MTurk community run into most of the same challenges every day. When I first started working MTurk back in 2009 I didn't understand how surveys worked and folks over at my other gig would laugh when I would say I was going to go "turkey trotting" or go "cut up the rug for a dime a dance". They would laugh at me while they would keep refreshing their work queue page only to see no work or work that had dried up by the time the page resolved. I would come over here, work for a while, and make $10 or $20 dollars while all they had to show for that time was no money and an impending case of carpal tunnel syndrome from refreshing the queue page.

    Then I found surveys and it was an on and off relationship until I went into the hospital and a month later MTurk as I knew it had tranformed into the new "worker" platform. Suddenly every thing was up-ended. My scripts were broken, new scripts had taken over and I felt like most all of you had passed me by. I had to learn how to Turk again. I remember days where there were literally millions of hits available as compared to the paltry 161,542 Total Available HITs showing tonight ... Somewhere something has gone very wrong with MTurk.

    It would be wonderful if the MTurk experience were to suddenly go back in time ever so slightly if only to gain back some of the older requesters.

    I think that there may have been more than one version of the hit. Still 5/5 pay either way.
