    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 should be able to make threads in most sections of the forum. If not, let me know.

    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 links.
    • If you notice your posts needs moderation, they will post after they've been reviewed or try editing your post and deleting any links.
    • After you make a few posts, the limits should be removed.

    Hello. Apologies in advance if this reply is in the wrong place, but I'm totally new here. I actually received a link to Mturk in an email message from a friend. I've been looking for employment for awhile, and he just thought I might like to check out Mturk. I am rather new to the idea of crowd-sourcing, and I need to read up on HITS and everything. I recently registered for a Worker account over at the Mturk general site, and heard about this forum in a YouTube video that I watched yesterday. I've pretty much been on my own as far as this is concerned, and don't really know what I'm doing yet.

    Welcome! Good luck. Hope you get accepted. It's pretty random whether people get accepted and it varies how long it takes to get accepted too.

    Feel free to ask any questions you may have once you get accepted to start working in Mturk.
