    Welcome to the forum.

    In order to post a thread, you would need to click on 'forum' tab on top of this thread then pick the topic you want to post in. Click the topic, like 'general'. Once in, go to the top where it says +Post New Thread. Click that then you can start a thread.

    Hello all, impatiently waiting for day three to get another day closer to finishing probationary period. Glad there's a forum that's still active to help out noobs like me! I've been lurking for about five days as it took a couple days to get my account fully functional with amazon.

    It is because you are new that's why it says you may not post images and start new threads yet until you've posted certain number of posts.

    Hi All,

    i m from UAE originally from Jordan, working in UAE since 2010 in a real estate firm. Ready to explore places outside the box, i m looking for different places that others won't have in their list for now and i guess Tenerife is one of them, i heard much about in Wikipedia and was looking for a better community to get along with more people including native and tourists.

    I can't create a new thread in the "Do my HIT" section. I would like to advertise for our upcoming online experiment HIT.

    Hi everyone! I'm a potential requester for MTurk, but I have a question. Is there a particular forum where I should ask it?

    In short, I want to limit workers to completing one HIT per batch. I have a set of tasks that, due to their nature, should only be completed once by any given person. I can see on the MTurk website how to do this for something such as a survey, but the tasks I have in mind are all different. Any advice?

    Hi everyone I'm a requester with Pindrop, Inc. I'm diligent about treating workers well and have the positive reviews on Turkopticon to show for it: Requester ID A1BTZJCOJPKRO1. Hoping to use this site to advertise our HITs!

    Workers are automatically restricted to one assignment per HIT. Does this fulfill your needs?

    Hi all,

    I'm a requester and I was hoping to post about a study in the "Do my HIT" section. I understand that my first post can't be a new thread. Could I please get authorization to post about my HIT? Thanks!

    Hi all,

    I'm a new requester and I am very appreciative of this thread. I was hoping to post about a study in the "Do my HIT" section (10 minutes, $1.25). I see that my first post can't be a new thread. Could I please get authorization to post about my HIT? Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum!

    Since you made your first post already, I think you can post your study in the Do my HIT section. If not, let me know I'll look into it.

    Okay let me look into it and get you posting...

    EDIT: Go ahead and try to post. It should work now.

    Also feel free to post it again at the daily thread where you said good morning. That's where most of us hang out and share HITs as well.

    Again, thanks for joining the forum and good luck on your HITs.

    :wave: Hi. Welcome!

    Did you sign up for Mturk and get accepted? That would be the first place to start.
