    Welcome to mTurkForum! Congratulations on taking that next step as a worker or requester on Mechanical Turk.

    If you are a requester, please send me a private message, and I will work with you to set up your forum account. Thanks!

    Posting New Threads
    In order to cut down on spam, you won't be able to make a new thread for your first post, but can reply to an existing one instead.
    • I recommend popping over to the Daily HITs Forum and make a quick reply in today's thread which usually has a title like (Can't Find ____HITs).
    • These threads are where you will find most HITs posted, and most discussion about HITs.
    • After making that post, you can now make threads in most sections of the forum.

    Posting Links/Images
    Unfortunately, you also will be unable to post links for a short period of time.
    • This includes images, as well as any quotes.
    • If you notice your posts aren't going through, try editing your post and deleting any links.
    • After you make a few posts, the limits should be removed.

    This post was originally made because I was wondering why I was still unable to make threads, but I guess it just took a few minutes to update.

    That was because you are still under 10 posts. I approved it for you so it's up. You cannot post links until after 10th post which is why it didn't appear at first. They needed to be reviewed by a moderator/staff.

    Glad you joined us. Good luck!

    I have a question regarding the hit "
    Forum Exclusive: $25 for a 20 Minute Task. Email mturkcowfin@gmail.com" I submitted and the hit said would receive payment on Sunday. Then I did receive a follow up email saying payment would be Monday or Tuesday. Now it is Wednesday and I have no response to the email i sent 24 hours ago regarding payment. Has anyone else done this hit and not been paid?

    Hello! I am a new requester looking to make a thread advertising my HIT in the next day or so. I am looking to be able to find access to making a thread before creating the HIT, as to find optimum outcome for the upcoming HIT. Thank you!

    Glad I read this first, thanks. I would have been confused if I'd tried to post a new thread (my first post) and it didn't go through.

    Hi all. I was wondering why I couldn't post a new thread until I came here. It should be in the FAQ that your first post can't be a new thread.

    Yes, I saw that. I was just saying it would be helpful if that was in the FAQ.

    Hi, I am COgma (a Colorado Grandma) - I've been turking for several years, and teaching low-income women how to sign up and make money turking. Now that I am retired, I am trying to get more active in the forums, so I can hopefully repay all those who have posted great HITs that I have done over the years.

    Thanks for the directions here. I will wait to be approved and won't sneak in advertising about my HIT. Have a great day.

    Thank you for the nice introduction.
    How do I get approved as Requester to recruit for my HITS?

    Best regards

    Hello! *waves*

    I'm new to this site and still in the process of signing up for Mturk. I'll be finishing that up tonight or tomorrow and then waiting for my account verification.

    Edit:
    I just finished signing up, now the wait.

    Hi - I'm a psychology researcher. I am looking to post a HIT for people over the age of 40. I want to guarantee that people actually are that age, but I don't want to upset people by having them start my HIT, only to be told they are too young. Any suggestions for the way to do this that best ensures the quality of my data and doesn't bother Turkers?

    Make various attention checks asking for their age throughout the survey. If they're lying about their age, chances are they won't get all of the attention checks right; you can then reject them if they still submit the hit

    Hi,
    I am new here, I have been using Mturk for about 21 days, I have completed a bit over 210 hits. I stumbled onto Mturk and have been using it ever since. I have read on the Internet different people's accounts that they make minimum wage and for an hour, but I am only averaging $12-$15 a day that is for about 4-5 hours of doing surveys. I would not mind reading other forums that explains doing batches and other things to increase what I am making. I do not type very well and cannot transcribe anything.

    Hey people,

    Been turking for a couple months, just about 2000 hits. I'm pretty terrible at this, only making ~ $1-6 most days with the very rare $20 day. I really want to get my number of hits up to 5000 as my next goal .

    - beth
