    Help ! I made a mistake

    Dear requesters,

    I poorly designed my HIT on AMT thus workers were not able to complete it. How can compensate them for their time and feedback knowing their workerID ?

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards,

    mcb

    Hi mcb, if the worker has never submitted a HIT for you, unfortunately you are not able to send them a message (or grant them a bonus) through the Mechanical Turk platform.

    You can, however, assign them a qualification.

    I would create a custom qualification, and grant it to those workers. Then, create a make-up HIT and apply that qualification, so only those workers you have identified can access the HIT. Finally, hope that they see it and complete it to collect their reward.

    Good luck!
    Eschew obfuscation, espouse elucidation. Batch HITs for newbs. 1000 req'd. 5000 req'd.

    I'm guessing that at least some of them contacted you? You will be able to respond to their queries and you can ask them to spread the word. You might also go to your turkopticon page and add a comment for the other workers to contact you. Good luck! It is great that you are willing to admit that you made a mistake and that you want to make it right. Turkers are a forgiving bunch. They will appreciate it tremendously.
