    Default Turk Alert is No More

    “We are sorry to announce that Turk Alert has closed. The changes Amazon made in 2015 effectively crippled our service since we were unable to gather the information necessary to send alerts after they removed the ability to see Requester IDs when logged out, and added a CAPTCHA to any service logging in automatically. That meant we didn't know who was posting HITs, and could no longer add new Requesters to our database. As a result, this service was no longer functional, and we couldn't continue to offer any benefit to the community. ”

    FWIW, I still used the email alerts and will miss TA. Some notice would have been nice; I wish I had been able to export my list of requester IDs before they shut it down. Oh well.

    This is a really sad news... hopefully we'll be able to come up with something new in the future.

    Flora and the others on Masters use batches with closed quals, so it's as if we have 2 populations in the group and on MT.
