Can two people in the same household use mturk?
I was wondering if both my husband and I use mturk .. each of use logging on different accounts at the same time? I don't want my account to get suspended or anything!!
And also we will be transferring our earnings to the same bank account

I would like to know this as well - I've read varying things online from just searching, but most of these answers/questions were posted in 2009. My boyfriend and I are sharing an internet connect (so, consequently IP address) but we have two separate accounts, validated by SSN, and completely separate bank accounts. I didn't even realize it might be a problem until I thought about it the other day, but I've only been on MTurk for less than 10 days. Would really like to know too. Thanks!
I have friend who had mturk account, and created another for his son. Both were suspended. It is best to write to mturk about this subject, and ask them to allow you to work on two accounts from the same home.
I don't understand why would you like to have two accounts, isn't it better to work on one account together? Or you probably like to work simultaneously.
Two people in the same household can both have separate mturk accounts. However, they must have different bank accounts attached to them. In other words.... a husband and wife can both turk but just make sure you have separate turker accounts with separate bank accounts.

Yes. Three people can as well.
I, my girlfriend, and my brother(Whom sometimes uses our internet to work on Mturk).
We have been logged in simultaneously. I think that if you were to both be doing the same HITs all the time they may get suspicious.. As in surveys and such, but I have no clue. We generally don't do the same kind of HITs.
