Thread: Do you pay?

  1. #1

    Do you pay?

    How many of you use Turk Alert?

    Do any of you pay for the upgraded service?

    I have not yet, but I blow through my 15 emails before the day even starts.

    Is it worth it?

    Thanks!

    It depends on what you work on Mturk for. If you are doing this for a living, then it is probably worth it. If you are doing it to buy your monthly supply of cat food for your kitties, then probably not. I think it is pretty cheap, so IDK. I only have requesters who rarely post work on alert, so I usually do not go through my 15 emails per day.

    No, I do not use the upgrade or will ever do so in the future. I have a selected group of requesters that I enjoy working for and I keep tabs on that. It might help for others though.

    I pay because I wanted to help this forum pay for the server and thought that the 200 emails would help me more than the forum package would.

    I paid for the upgrade. There are a lot of requesters who only post work every few weeks/months/years, and TurkAlert lets me know when they are posting. There's too many to keep track of with other scripts that scrape mturk all the time.
