    Same reason you ask why they did it, and didn't quote them to notify them you were talking to them:: they're new. Chillax, they're probably clicking buttons on the MTS and TVJS scripts trying to figure out what does what since there's no real consolidated instruction manual anywhere. Happens all the time, and I've accidentally exported $.01/hr HITs to here just by clicking on the wrong part of the description

    The difference was that that person popped in and went "Hey guys! How do I get started?"

    At least I was gentle and patient this time?

    I wasn't trying to be rude or anything I was kind of wondering if it was only broken for me or something

    YAAAAAAS!!! I just caught another HIT from the brand new requester who rejected me today, and refused to overturn the rejection because "you must have added an extra space or something to the attention check" despite telling them the attention check question and answer and make/model of the vehicle I had to copy/paste the specs from and they're at an 83% rating after 14 hours.

    So I DIDN'T screw up, and the rejection was just them messing up their text field reading algorithms and refusing to overturn it

    Nah, you weren't, but if the user avatar says New Turker, they're brand new and just poking at buttons trying to figure stuff out. If you look at the upper right of your window, you'll see a globe icon. That's our notification panel. Only way to trigger that is to quote someone. The mail icon is, as you might guess, private messages. If you have notifications set up, the Turkerview tab will blink with a notification that you have a new one.

    Any HITs older than a day or so, unless you have a closed qual for a followup or longitudinal study or a very rare location/demographic qual from the premium quals are going to be broken or so underpaying even the Indian server farms running on a VPN won't touch them. Quadruply so for anything hosted on Heroku. Noah Turk or Dialogue Evaluation or Zhou Yu, anything older than 30 minutes is gonna be broken.

    Also, if it says "Chat and Evaluate Bot", 9 times out of 10, it's broken in 10 minutes no matter the requester.

    Welcome Cryyo :)

    Keep asking questions. Sometimes there's not too many late-night folks around - but I think if you start to make it a habit to check TurkerView reviews on requesters you'll get a heads up when they are broken. Also if you find one that's broken and leave a review it's a good way to help other Turkers avoid those and keep working.

    Hope you're having a great night!

    Welcome Cryyo!

    To export make sure you have the TurkerView JS script installed. Here is the link: https://turkerview.com/mturk-scripts/

    When you complete a hit you'll be able to review it and either export the review here or just submit to the TV database.

    Oh this song was awesome!

    I'm on a Whitney Houston binge right now. Always loved her music.
