    Concerns regarding methods for avoiding the 40% fee

    I've been testing out a python script that automatically reposts the same HIT while keeping the total number of assignments per HIT at or below 9, thus staying within the 20% fee category. It may be too early to tell, but do you think this workaround is something Amazon may suspend my requester account for?

    Nope, I have been using a similar technique in many of my recent studies on AMT and had no issues. Just be sure to monitor your email, because if one of your HITs *does* violate the TOS and you keep reposting a HIT after it's pulled, they will temporarily suspend your account.
    It's all good.
