Have you been suspended by mturk?

October 8, 2010 2:38am CST
I did a survey from a requester "PED Research" and I got rejected, in fact, this requester blocked me. Just for being blocked by one requester mturk gave me a warning that if I get blocked again my a/c would be suspended, which I find very unfair. My success rate is %98 but mturk does not look at the success rate. I find mturk very unfair. Have you experience the same? What happened to your account?

I agree that being blocked is a serious offence in Amazon's eyes and yet it is so easy for a requester to block a person. Perhaps reading these three threads (from an MTurk Forum) will help you to understand and may help you resolve the problem. There are three good sized articles here. They are worth reading right through. As an "MTurker", you may also want to join the forum. It looks a bit under used but could be helpful. 1: http://www.mturkforum.com/showthread.php?t=333 2: http://www.mturkforum.com/showthread.php?t=334 3: http://www.mturkforum.com/showthread.php?t=335
