    So I just joined this site, but looking at these sticky posts, many of them have loads of replies.

    A couple questions. Do some of these techniques still work despite the fact that this topic was started years back? Where would be a good place to start reading from?

    Is there a page or post that gets updated when things with mturk change that is easier for new mturk members to get started?

    Hi! Welcome. Yes most of the sticky posts are still good today. Not much has changed except for some new scripts that help people look for HITs.

    If you have any questions, feel free to join us in the daily thread where people hang out, share HITs and chat.

    Has anyone been banned and reinstated? I had a bunch of submissions rejected by Site Mechanics for criteria that was not listed in their posting. I emailed them every day for each rejection for the past two weeks asking them to reconsider and stating that they did not request such info in their posting. They never replied to any of my emails. Then I got banned from Turk a few days ago. I'm almost certain they complained about me because there's no other reason why I would be banned. I called 5 days ago and they told me that I would receive an email explanation why my account was inactive in 24 hours. Never happened. I called twice yesterday and both times, they put me on hold and then I got mysteriously disconnected. Same exact thing happened today. I called and got "disconnected" again today. On the second time I called, I told the lady that I kept getting mysteriously disconnected. She told me that if we got disconnected, she had my phone number and she would definitely call me back "you have my word." We got disconnected, and she never called me back as she promised. I take it this will keep happening with them hoping I will eventually give up? Anyone been banned and reinstated. It seems so cowardly of them to do it in this manner and all because I was unfairly rejected and just wanted one reply to my inquiry. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hello. Welcome to the forum.

    Sorry to hear about your account.

    Yes there have been people that got their accounts back after being banned. Only thing you can do is just keep calling until you get some answers.

    to the forum!

    You probably can get better answers at a requester forum regarding designing HITs. I'm sure someone can help you there.

    Good luck!

    How do I delete my Mturk Forum account? The Contact Us link down below leads to "Sorry. The email function has been disabled by the administrator."
