    I've heard of people turning off their TO to make it run faster. I need my TO even if half of the time it's useless. Looks alright on my end. I'm using 2 refresh delay though, don't know if that makes a difference.

    Ebay listing $400 prepaid Visa sold for $489j

    I am...confused. I'm guessing this has to do with people trying to convert online currency into physical cash? Target sells these cards for face value plus a $6 fee. From the description it certainly sounds like many scammers buy these.

    Member here that usually posts outside of daily threads. Usually on other threads out there.

    The article is good evidence that the mod here does a great job of catching scamming talk!

    Yeah, I've tried turning TO off and it obviously speeds it up. But I suffer without it. I just don't deal well with the information overload of all the HITs popping up, especially if I am busy doing a survey at the time. I find I end up all but ignoring scraper.

    And yeah, it means I miss some perfectly good HITs with low TO by filtering... I rely on you guys to bring them to my attention. :D

    From that paper and "ONLINE TURKER FORUMS AND DECEPTION"

    MTurk Forum (MTF)
    Registered users: 54,831

    It may well be true. But providing that number is certainly deceptive.

    Someone is always watching. Even requesters. I cringe when I see HWTF mentions all kinds of screeners, memory checks and attention checks.

    Yeah I was surprised by those numbers. That has to be total since the forum started in 2009.

    Lately it's mostly spambots that have been registering like crazy! That's why you'll see all these unknown names out there outside of the threads.

    This is further evidence that general demographic information should be handled by Amazon through their surveys and then fed into the requester surveys either through qualifiers or coding.

    Think about how much time each day it would save no having to enter age, race, orientation, education, income, family size, etc. just for those basic questions.

    They posted a teeny tiny batch a few hours ago, so here's hoping they'll start up again this week.
