    Yes, the infamous Oscar Muncher. I just recently got flagged by meaning that I could not submit any information as card image simply blocked with a message essentially saying "Your Account Has Been Flagged For Suspicious Activity". I have done legitimate work for this particular requester (500+ with making sure looking up websites for blurry images), and it really disappoint me that it has to come to this. I do notice that the pay could have been better but at least it is steady and I always gives me something to do (I don't mind typing).

    Does anyone has a similar experience regarding flagged account. Sent a mail to the requester just yesterday when I received the notice, hoping for something good. Still couldn't believe sagging for all that work hoping for "quals" :/

    Well, I've decided to flag Oscar.

    This "guy" behaves like some fickle schizophrenic who can't decide which voice he's going to listen to on any given day......"hmmm....good boss, crappy irresponsible boss, good boss, crappy irresponsible boss". I picture him stopping in the middle of a joke while lounging next to his indoor pool. He reaches for his two million dollar, bling-encrusted smart phone he calls Hal. "Excuse me, ladies," he says to the five fake blondes and one token natural brunette, "I have to make sure to send out the latest batch of 2 cent checks to those ungrateful hamsters who won't leave me the *&^% alone."

    Or we might be getting paid by some poor guy who works overtime, going blind looking at all the submissions while getting a massive .10 an hour.

    Whatever.

    I think we're all subjects of a twisted experiment.:p

    haha, but sadly there's almost nothing else to do here. At least I could sit down for hours for work that I typically enjoy (I usually sat down listened to some music and burn 100-150 of them). It's such a a damn shame that I have to sit down being unproductive again (really trying to avoid it!) anywhoo, it seems that this dude is blocking me for sure, and he also seems to be ignoring my emails.

    Work is earning, although we do have enough resources for everyone so everyone don't have to work, you know why that's a myth. :)

    I cannot say for sure why your account was flagged. I have read in another thread that he is not responding to emails. He has also not responded to my 3 emails in the past 2 weeks about masters qual. So maybe there is something going on on his end of things.

    I don't know what to say - I never had trouble and I have a 90 Rating. Do you use a lot of different IP addresses? Maybe something like that raised a flag to him.

    Email him a Calm email and ask him what caused the flag and what you can do. Appologize if you did do something wrong and say you want to learn. That is the best advice. But if you are as irrate as you have been posting here in an email to him, then I wouldn't expect a reply back.

    Poor submission perhaps might initiate the flag, at least by their justification. I have noticed that to avoid requester from blocking you is simply just don't send them HITs that would clearly less in comparison with other fellow workers submission. Since this I have been diligently trying to distiguish HITs that I rather return or submit, for example, been yesterday I did few HITs for brelig (receipts), one of the store was incorrectly tagged, therefore you have the option to notify that this receipt is incorrectly tagged or just simply start filling the entries. For this I know for sure that simply notifying, in mean lesser work is justified as poor submission, so I just returned the HIT instead (annoying, but hey).

    So what happen with Oscar's HIT is that I seems to have a habit to enlarge every picture before I even do the transcription for obvious reason, and one day I accidently hit submit button instead before even going on to transcribing. So the logic is I perhaps reached the limit of submitting empty transcription (previous empty transcription was invalid pictures that doesnt relate to cards: sim cards, table, desk, etc.), So I could easily avoid the flag this by simply returning these bastards to where they came from :facepalm:.

    Anyways I don't wish to further bash on this requester. Very consistent but iffy, that's all I got to say. No, I have not received reply for any of my inquiries yet until today. But perhaps my loss could be your gain.

    Now go back to work! :p

    Do you accept those hits and then immediately return them to get through a "capcha"? Seems they don't like that.

    People have been blocked for doing that. Not a good idea.

    I wouldn't want to do a hit for that fat f**k anyway. His hits take too long and he pays too little per hit. There are several other hits that pay better who won't flag you for properly doing their hits.
