    Ever try to get ahold of Remesh? I don't know how anyone manages to catch those. Been trying for years. Caught one back in '19. Those were the days.

    Work is done...
    Attaching a TLDR email from Xi Chen FYI-

    Hello Sherry Stanley,

    Thank you for reaching out! What you are saying is very helpful! As you probably read in my email, this is my first online study and I didn’t have the perspective as a worker. So I’m still learning and appreciate your suggestions!

    Your email made me realize that I should change my expectation and think through as an online worker more. I do think I always value our participants greatly and sincerely appreciate their time. I have had a lot of experience working with research participants in person. That is a very rewarding part of my job. So forgive me but I don’t think it’s fair to assume I don’t value people’s time and effort. But thank you for explaining to me what people may feel about it. I can see why it may be perceived that way. I have relied on my experience in traditional research settings, but didn’t learn to adapt to the online environment. In traditional research settings, participants are volunteers and it is considered unethical to think research volunteers as “workers”. It is embedded in my training and I’m used to that thinking. But like you mentioned, although we don’t mean to recruit workers for paid jobs, for people who sign up for the task, they may consider the task a paid work and expect higher pay. To most people, getting paid at a higher rate is the most direct way they feel respected. This is important for me to remember. Thank you!

    Finally, I just want to thank you for helping many workers on a very important issue. Thank you and all the people helping workers heard, and helping me hear their perspective. Protecting workers is important for a healthier MTurk environment, which will be beneficial for both workers and requesters in the long term. Maybe what I shared as a new MTurk requester could also be helpful in this process too. :) Thank you very much!

    Homemade? What kind of cooking skills do you think I have? :emoji_laughing:
    It was a Supreme burrito from Taco Bell, and I had two of them. :emoji_yum:

    What is sushi if not a tiny burrito wrapped in nori instead of a tortilla?

    :emoji_joy::emoji_joy::emoji_joy: I got you buddy. You can save this recipe and never make it like 95% of the people who watch cooking videos.



    I waited too long to go grab food, and now everything is closed. All I have is ingredients, so I have to actually make something :emoji_sob:

    I usually keep a big batch of homemade ones in my deep freezer, but I've been slacking on my meal prep.

    I'm so hungry :emoji_cry:

    I gotta do this boring jury duty hit first :/

    I might make this for dinner. Presentation isn't my strong suit, so I'm sure it won't look as pretty
