View Full Version : Can a requester or mTurk link my TN account to my Worker ID?

I received this question via PM, and the answer is NO. Unless your TN user name IS your WorkerID, there is no way to be connected. The only way I will give your IP address to mTurk (I wouldn't give it to a requester) is if you publicly admit you're doing something really, really bad on mTurk (scamming, for example) I've only done it a handful of times and only in situations where I thought the member was causing a major hardship to a requester, mTurk in general, or other Turkers.

Good idea to never publicly post your user ID# or Mturk name on this forum.
I have seen requesters ask for it in posts, and people give it to them right in the thread.
That will connect you very quickly lol

Might not be the best idea to put your info out there where anyone can see it, especially if there have been attempts to hack this board....
