    ocmp has been around longer than me so I refuse to believe they didn't have a golden answers system in place already. That's how they've been able to detect and remove quals up to this point, right?

    I'm paying close attention to the wording of the email:
    "To mitigate the above problem we are introducing a feature to randomly check worker’s answers against our golden set while a batch is running."
    I think that's the change as compared to before. Before they would run answers after they've gathered all the data. Now the answers will be ran against the goldens in real time, probably just giving them a larger headache than before.

    This is pure conjecture

    If anyone else is like me and wants a nice cozy bedtime story before you go to sleep, Turkprime published a preprint containing lots of juicy data about mturk

    5.7% of workers take 42.2% of all turkprime surveys is what they're saying I think

    I'm just sitting here laughing at amazon
    "How Big is the MTurk Worker Pool? ... What is clear from published papers is that even though Amazon advertises more than 500,000 registered workers the number of active workers is considerably smaller" get rekt

    Also that study doesn't take into account at all how easy it is to get over 10k approved hits.

    I don't know if I'd call it easy. It's practically impossible for survey takers which is what this data is zoning in on. Also most quit before they can, they're saying over half of turkeys on the platform are new each year. That's a lot of turkey turnover

    mturk has a pretty steep learning curve, especially if you aren't likable enough to build a reliable spoonfeed network. It just seems like meaningless data to me, mostly because people from that side of the platform don't really understand how mturk works for people on the worker end.

    It's more complicated than that too. Not only is there the worker side, but there's layers to it. Like a fucking onion lol. I bet you those authors have turked at some point but all they saw was the surface
