    I try and do a hit and I get this message;

    Sorry, there was a problem with the requested page
    This was unexpected and we are looking into it. Feel free to contact us if this problem persists for you. In the meantime let’s go home and try again.

    I was posting on another post but I realized that it was from two years ago.. ha! So I am reposting this on a new one. Hoping someone can help. And hoping I'm not alone. I did contact Mturk with a message so I'll see if I hear back from them as well. Just wondered if anyone else is having problems getting into the hit's today.

    I got the exact same problem. The only thing I did different today was update firefox but not sure it's that.

    Well, I feel better I'm not alone now. I keep trying different things, I cleared my history and cookies, nothing is helping.

    I'm hoping it's the site and not something else that I won't be able to figure out.

    Was having the same problem today. Turns out I had to unplug my air fryer for MTurk to start working again. I know it sounds crazy, but apparently MTurk now uses some kind of new Internet-of-Things technology thingy and it interferes with air fryers and crashes everything. :dunno: Just try to unplug your air fryer and see if that helps.

    To-Do List:
    • Buy myself an Apple Inc. Airfryer with same-day delivery so I can unplug it.
