    You got lucky and beat the AA. Good job admitting you did them wrong though.

    I emailed him and never heard back, mostly they were n/a but a found a couple that were in canada. They approved so I assumed it was fine. It's not like i was actively looking for non us zip codes scamming him.

    So many requesters can't seem to figure out how to use this platform today. *shakes head*

    His instructions stated he only wanted US zip codes. I skipped anything foreign.

    The rejections were primarily for "4 digits" - which leads me to believe the leading 0 got cut off of NJ and CT zips. I know I submitted a few that began with 0.

    I did like 20 and I know that quite a few were NJ zips. It's definitely a case of leading 0s being stripped because of csv.

    I don't care about 7 rejections but the reasoning is on that guy. This is a huge problem with Mturk. That is, the inequitable distribution of power from Requester to Worker and the lack of proper recourse for workers to dispute rejections. If someone actually cared it would probably be an easy case to sue Amazon for facilitating inequitable arrangements :eek:

    Still no response :( I'm hoping he's just MIA until Monday, but I'm not holding my breath. I only wound up with 3 rejections, but it still kinda sucks, and unfortunately there's no indication there's anything wrong with the template. I just hope people read TO before going all in.

    I see PA has implemented an approval score into their pre-screening.

    Good luck with the reversals. I can't do these, but just reading what you guys have been saying about them, would it still be possible to make money and not get rejected by just cherry picking ones with zips that (a) are there, (b) are U.S. and (c) don't start with a zero?

    The problem is they aren't worth all that much to begin with. Cherrypicking them makes them even less worthwhile.
