    I was hard blocked by Oscar Smith after completing 7 HITs.
    I kept getting the same card over and over again. I am new to mTurk only 3 days in, so this worries me that requesters block for now reason, and don't respond to emails. I was told that if I get blocked again my account will be suspended . Anybody know how I can rectify this issue? Maybe get him to change ot from a hard to a soft block?

    Hi,


    Do you got a mail stating that it is a hard block?If you got a mail from amazon stating warning
    message then it is a hard block.
    Explain all your problems what happened on the hit and what you did, everything to the requester.
    Send him a mail.
    From my experience i think Oscar smith rarely responds to mails.
    But keep on trying to remove ur block.
    Best Wishes

    Well, you can't say there was no reason. They had a reason to block you but there is little you can do about it. Surely you knew you probably shouldn't do the same card over and over again. They are known for not answering emails plus rumor has it that they will be gone by mid Summer. The only thing you can do is make sure you do fault free work for every other requester. Make sure you have TO installed and only work for good requesters. Do great work and you will be okay.

    I think this rumor have some strength.

    I couldn't find Oscar Smith hits for about 2 days. He might have left at least without blocking BeezyGotSole.
