    crystal.jiang@cityu.edu.hk [A2RSYN5UM9VSEZ] Survey about Health Behaviors(~ 15 minutes) - $1.50 | PANDA

    For some reason my actual one got cancelled but still want to say my piece.

    This HIT should honestly be the gold standard for what you can put as work on MTURK. I finished with 44$ an hour. Questions are clear and easy to understand and process. Questions weren't repeated multilple times. I wasn't pretty much spit on by the requester for wasting 3-5 minutes of my time to then have the audacity to ask for a college level essay paper for .80 damn cents.

    I know that people from other countries do mTurk which drives the whole system down. Amazon could easily address this by seperating US/non us workers into different sites. While harshly enforcing the borders.

    It honestly blows my mind some of the hits that you see. Like there is no way in hell this dude wrote that with a straight face.

    If 3$ US is decent for someone in whatever country then it's understandable why hits that they are more often to target are lower paying. I also believe I remember reading that they straight up can't cash out to a bank either. So they trade for gift cards then get a fraction of that 2 weeks later. So that 10 cent hit was actually worth closer to 7 cents. They can't do the US only work any, and if they are using a VPN to lie and take hits from US workers then I disapprove of that hard and I hope those peoples accounts are banned.

    I found Mturk almost 2 years ago. In that time i'm coming up on about 5k hits completed and a little over 2 grand banked. Beside the high rate of low quality hits gunking up the finder, I have nothing but postiive things to say about the site. With the way things are I have easily been able to clear 50$ a day. I work nights and am home by 7 am. An ideal time to start turking. Over the next 4-8 hours I can accumulate usually 30-50 dollars. I have tried all the other ways you can supposedly work from home or whatever but mTurk ;has been a pretty steady and consistent source of extra money that can literally be done while i'm doing other stuff on my computer like I was literally doing anyway.


    If they actually put some effort into this place it could be amazing. Instead of everything being snapped up incredibly quickly I could actually sit down and steadily and actually work for 2-4 hours and end with 50-100 dollar bill in my pocket would be great. Damn near as good as a serving job honestly.

    Well shit sorry for the rant I'll go ahead and call it their. It already rambled on a bit longer then I expected, so sorry about that fellas.

    The most unfortunate part of this is the fact that we are all anonymous, which completely takes away our ability to really work together to improve the site and have someone checking hits to make sure that they are not insults. I wanna say that an almost digital strike from all of us could force their hand to finally improve on mTurk and even make it better.

    TLDR: Great start, over abundance of workers, Give this guy a gold medal if a hit someone posts does not come close to this there should be a moderator that tosses it in the trash and to make the point clear to keep the payment money that was put in to cover the hits.

    It's straight up child's advice. If you can't afford something then don't do it. I remember the first day i found this stie and looked it over. See a huge stack of receipts that are barely legible and are barely readable, each one easily taking 5-10 minutes paid a penny.

    I hope you took the time to read my little rant here. Would love to hear others input. I'd really be interested in creating a discord for turkers to hang out in and maybe using power in numbers start to cleaning the site up and returning it to it's glory days. This is no different then any other job that you work with a computer. So it's not really physical labor but it's the same sort of labor as a lot of jobs.

    /rant.

    I will post when I have a discord set up. Thanks for reading. Good luck and stack good old grampa Benjamin.

    I don't want to sound rude, but no. The entire post, all of it, just no. Bad.

    Here is the discord that I created for any mturkers that want to come. Invite your friends as well. If there is general interest shown I will definitely put some work into it. Right now it's fairly bare bones but if you have any thoughts/ideas/suggestions don't hesitate to send them my way. I want this to be more of just a laid back community for turkers to interact with eachother.

    It's one of the things that is definitely missing with mTurk is the small frequency that you interact with other human beings.

    Apes together strong!

    They could call it Turkerview Forums. No wait, that's a dumb name. What about Turkerhub.
