    btw the masses swarming him thing was a joke, before anyone hates me for saying that. The "masses" of like 10 masters that browse the forum lmao, since its been like 4 years since its gone out. Most of whom didn't even work on this since it was later at night. This is what padding is for, after all. Just feels scummy that he put out a few small batches of <100 over the last few days, then puts up a big one and rejects it all. It is what mturk is after all, any requester can do this shit and get free data.

    That sucks. I've got 24 pending from a batch drop sometime yesterday. I'm gonna hope I'm safe since they haven't rejected yet.

    You might be safe. He hit me early this morning for the 2 large batches last night and silence since then. I have a few pending still from a couple days ago too.

    Is there a chance he changed a setting and they auto-rejected somehow? Perhaps he is unaware of them? Grasping here.

    Yeah, I've done a few batches before too, I considered him a pretty safe requester until I saw that @turker had rejections this morning. He actually posted a small batch right after I saw that. I'm figuring on avoiding him until I see how it plays out. Hopefully it was just an accident and they all get overturned. :emoji_fingers_crossed:

    It's possible, he rejected 100% of the hits and the feedback was "This is obviously debunked", which is curious because I definitely marked the ones that were debunking as that.
    For those that don't know, the HIT had you read a tweet and a response to the tweet and we had to label the response as Debunking or Other, so pretty simple stuff with only 2 choices. There were tweets where the only response was "Get well soon", which is obviously not a debunk.

    I've messaged him, which is all a lowly turker like me can do. That and cover my ass with a huge approved. I can take 26k before I drop to 99% but this is the kind of thing that could kill accounts if they don't have as much padding, so it's always unfortunate to see (if it wasn't just an error)

    I honestly feel sick for you and anyone else this happened to and don't think anything you've said is out of line. Even if it's not masses of people, hopefully everyone who got the rejections does reach out. Hopefully if people had masters they have a pretty good amount of padding but if something like this were to happen to a new or unused account, it could destroy their ability to work for quite a long time, not to mention how people should be paid for the work they do. I hope things get worked out and everything is overturned

    I have 1000 HITs from one batch, ~40 from another, 150 from one today, all pending. I can eat the 40 no problem, but if the others came back rejected, I would have some issues. If all the HITs I have pending rejected, my approval would drop to about 97%. As workers, we do the best work that we're able to do and trust the requesters to understand that. I don't think you're too hard on this guy for asking the masses to swarm him at all. I hope they do.

    Mass rejections are pretty rare, relatively speaking. So rare that it's not something I really consider at all when I work on something. Requesters on mturk are usually pretty good. Most understand that they're effectively blacklisting themselves if they try and pull shit like this, thanks to the community and its strong and easily accessible tools that allow us to "police" the platform ourselves. There's also the old adage "Scared money don't make money". Here's hoping for a swift payment for you on those :emoji_fingers_crossed:
