Retired from Mturk =]
It's pretty amazing how amazon doesn't have any rules or regulations against client's conduct while they will come crashing on any mistake of a turker.
Sad thing is, it isn't the mistake of a turker. Someone named Sammie, at CrowdSource, emailed me and stated that she reviewed all the hits I was rejected for and it wasn't nothing at my fault. It was a glitch on their part. As they promised to be reversed yesterday morning they are still not.
Are you saying that you closed your AMT (Amazon Mechanical Turk) account and started another one, just to clear your stats?
Just want to make sure I understand what you are saying.
I was wondering the same thing... whether he has created another account?
Wow! I think you jumped the gun. Sometimes people get busy. You should have given them a few more days to see if they would in fact reverse the rejections. Now if they do you have deleted your account. You could have simply sent them a reminder to find out what is taking so long. I would have given it a few more days! I'm sure they'll fix it but now you've deleted your entire account. What about pending transactions that hadn't paid out yet?
Are you a US Worker?
Looking back through the post the OP has made I wouldn't doubt this one bit.
Yes, I believe she was the one arguing with Andy about being hacked into, correct me if I'm wrong.
yea I agree... I would have kept sending reminders and would have completed other hits like oscar or redwood or something just to get the stats back up if the numbers bothered you... either way if you started over your gonna have to do the same thing ya know
I thought Amazon would block you for life if you tried to create a second/duplicate account? Or is that just an urban legend?
Amazon told me as long as we deleted the other one. And also Amazon stated for example two people of a couple can have an account, but they can't be linked to the same banking account.
thats good to know for future reference though.. just sucks you are starting over
Ummmm NO!!!!! This is not allowed! You are only ever allowed to have ONE AMT account per person.
Edit: the couple thing is correct as a husband/bf/so can have one account while the wife/gf/so has another account but you cannot screw up an account for one individual and then open another account for that same individual without breaking TOS. I don't care if you delete the first account or not that is not allowed. If this is the information you are getting it is BS! After all, why would they let you fuck up one account with rejections and blocks and then just start over from square one to do it again? That doesn't make any sense at all is not correct. You should not be telling peeps that giving them false hope or a false sense of security that they can just open up a new account if the screw up.
