    Hey guys,
    I just set up a HIT that will allow us to add and vote on our favorite suggestions for making MTurk a better place. To get the ball rolling, I posted a couple myself, but I hope you'll drop by and add some of your own.

    HIT Link Expired and Removed

    Mechanical Turk Senior Product Manager, Yevgeny (Eugene) Kolovyanksy, will be receiving the results, so this is our chance to make our voices heard and let Amazon know what is important to us.

    Google provides the hosting for this service, and voting or submitting a suggestion to the site requires signing in with a Google account. If you don't already have one, it's easy to sign up right from the suggestions page by clicking 'Sign In' and then 'Get Started'. Google is the only one who will see your e-mail address or personal info.

    Alternately, you can submit your suggestion through the form in the HIT, and I will post it to the site for you.

    If there are no more HITs available, don't despair. I'll put up more soon. In the meantime, you can look at what other people have entered:

    Hope to see you there!

    Hi Ergo, I saw your hit at mturk and have contributed my thoughts. I hope something positive is done and we get to see some change.

    I wasn't aware this hit posted by you, until I submitted.

    MTurk's Senior Product Manager wrote me back regarding this HIT:

    It's not much, but at least he took a look at it. It's interesting that there were a few suggestions on there he hadn't heard before. My HIT must have attracted some particularly creative thinking. :)

    Congrats on the reply Ergo. It seems the big dogs have taken notice in you. I guess it isn't every day that they see someone who is genuinely interested in improving their service using their service!

    Payment procedure should be changed. really indians are facing alot of problem with the payment procedure.. its takes one week for exchange rate and six to 8 weeks to receive cheques.. And sometimes we won't receive cheques in six to 8 weeks also. Again we have send them the mail ,, their again reissue the cheque again it takes six to 8 weeks to receive..

    I DON'T WHY THEY TAKE THIS MUCH OF TIME.

    The whole rejection needs to be changed as well. There should be an appeal process for us honest turkers that get screwed (pardon my French) over.

    Are people still going to this link:

    There seems to be good items, that have hardly any votes...


    Also when will be the last time this is looked at by the powers that be?

    It's been looked at by one of their team members, the senior project manager, but I'm planning on sending it to their VP soon too. So anyone who hasn't voted or has any new suggestions, please check it out before the end of this week!
