    Well, it may have had something to do with you completing hits too fast. Just my opinion but it doesn't surprise me.

    I just realized you said that you had no blocks in the past month, if you had blocks before that it may have just taken them that long to catch up with you.

    Thats a shocking news to be frank, just goes to show no one is safe. You got a stupendous stats playa. Did you contact them about the reason for the same? Not long before, they unlocked iceblink once he build up his case. Get behind them see what they have to say.

    Sorry to hear that as I see your posts from time to time and they are helpful.

    I understand you don't care but it would be good to know why you were suspended, could help some of us...

    It's a shame. Your numbers look good too.

    Damn sad to hear that Playa..

    Your stats aren't that different from mine and I got my suspension reversed pretty fast. All it is is when people like you and me do tons of HITs and work hard in a short space of time (60000 in 3 months) then you're gonna encounter dog turd requesters along the way no matter what your work is like.. That's just law of averages I guess.

    I know they will reverse it for you cuz you're a good worker.

    What a rotten, stupid, absurd thing they did to you. Bunch of f****** idiots.

    Playa, you have always been one of the members here that I respect the most. I am so sorry this has happened and I hope you get the decision reversed asap.

    Maybe it was, as Ice says, because you were too good, and Mturk expects mediocrity.

    OMG That's awful for you and scary for us.

    I'm really sorry that happened.

    I don't blame you for being fed up at all, but I hope that you do contact them to find out why.

    Maybe it could have been a mistake, even?

    Please don't give up without at least asking why they did this to you.

    All the suspension email said was due to too many blocks from requestors your account has been suspended by the amazon mturk team.. blah blah.. So i guess its from to many blocks.. But the last block i got was ages ago and it was reversed.. havnt gotten a single email saying ive gotten a block in the past month..

    As far as contacting amazon i just dont care.. Im glad its over tbh.. My hand hurt day in day out.. its exhausting sitting here all day waiting for a hit looking for a hit clicking hits .. Surveys omg dont get me started on that bullshit..

    The constant STRESS that comes with mturk the mass rejection worrys the new requesters.. to the old ones who just plain wanna screw people..

    Its just not worth it anymore.. in the short time ive been on mturk ive seen it decline to a point i was scraping the bottom of the barrel for work.. Its stressfull and i just dont need it anymore :D

    You can use the mTurk contact form and ask them if you have any. Usually you'll get an email if a requester blocks you, but as you can see Amazon isn't exactly diligent about it. It's better to contact them and ask if you have any blocks, and if so, what requesters they are from so you can attempt to contact them to get the block reversed. Doesn't always work.

    I've been Turking seriously since the beginning of the year and when I contacted Amazon last week they said I have zero blocks and my account is in great standing. Definitely refreshing after the hiring freeze and recent account suspensions.

    Hate to see anyone go with 63000+ approvals, but it would be nice to know which requesters blocked you.

    You will have gotten a block when you got the account suspension email.. The final block triggers it automatically. You will have been on the edge with probably 2 blocks and just received a 3rd from someone..

    Have you had any rejections or problems in the past few days?

    That most probably seems the case.

    Playa, could it be because of the new requester Matt Krudop whose HITs you were knocking down in 100s yesterday?

    I would email Amazon - Just ask what is up - you thought you had great work, and maybe it was the survey folks blocking?
