    you were probably owed a crowdflower settlement check. but iirc we got ours around 2015? 2016?

    crowdflower got sued by turkers because crowdflower got paid by requesters to create/set up/post hits along with whatever design, qualifications, things like that. I think, but it's been awhile so I could be wrong about the specifics. the gist of it was that money was supposed to go to mturk and to the workers, not to an intermediary. and it seemed like everyone was in agreement iirc, there wasn't any benefit to mturk or to the turkers that crowdflower was sort of skimming money from the requesters.

    makes me wonder if the requesters are paying turkprime/cr or if mturk is paying turkprime/cr? because I would feel better if it was mturk.

    the requesters would have spent that money towards paying the workers if crowdflower hadn't taken a cut. and I mean I thought it was kind of settled law now, because crowdflower losing was a big deal. and our settlement checks were big in proportion to how much work we had done. mine alone was hundreds of dollars. so it wasn't just a slap on the wrist. there used to be a lot of crowdflower-like businesses that went out of business following that. the message felt like "don't get between mturk and the workers". so I would feel better if turkprime/cr was part of mturk. because there is an enormous amount of people that would love to take a cut this way or that way.

    I haven't heard anything about that. I think it's too far before my time, but sounds like you went through a lot!

    Here's hoping that this all gets sorted for everyone in the weeks to come and that you all have a great 4th!

    I like going through the quals and finding the SUPER strongly worded ones that are just trying to prevent you from retaking it.

    Like chill out I barely liked your survey the first time.
