    Email / contact a requester if you're not qualified for their HITs

    I wanted to send a message to a requester through a HIT that I am not qualified for. When I expand the HIT from my dashboard, the "Contact the Requester of this HIT" link in the lower right corner is not there. Anyone know if this something the requester may have purposefully disabled, or is it a glitch?


    Thanks to anyone who knows!

    Spamgirl edited to put this in the first post:

    How to get around it:

    a) Find the requester's ID (right click their name on mTurk, copy the link, grab the ID)
    b) Plug it in here:

    Code:
    https://www.mturk.com/mturk/contact?subject=Replace+Me&requesterId=(put the ID here)


    It doesn't matter that their name is missing, it'll still email them.

    Okay, thank you. Maybe it has something to do with the "is US" qualification. Anyone out there who is not US that can check the link and see if it appears for them?

    That was helpful to narrow it down - thanks for checking.

    you're welcome i am a little curious to know myself if it's possible for them to keep people from messaging them that aren't "qualled" (not that living in a specific country is a qual)

    I appear to be wrong, so ignore me
    It's all good.

    This looks to be a system-wide change, presumably made by AMT, not the requester. I just looked at several pages of All Hits. The contact requester link is not there for any hits that I'm not qualified to do.

    Ditto. Cannot see the contact requester link if not qualified for hit. In US.
    May the hits be with you.

    Probably too many complaints from requesters with closed qualifications being bothered by ppl emailing them.
