    Why was my post removed from the Hall of Fame/Shame?

    The Hall of Fame/Shame has been repeatedly been abused lately by many that don’t understand its purpose. It is to be used only for rating a requester or reporting one’s experience with a requester, not for posts like the following:

    • "How do you do these HITs?"
    • “This requester just posted HITs!”
    • “Can someone explain to me how to...”
    • "Me too!" or "Thanks!" or "Ditto!"
    • Simply copying the Turkopticon rating"
    • Giving info on how to do the HITs

    Posts like those do not help in rating a requester. They will be removed and repeat offenders will be penalized. The reason we have to adhere to this rule is to keep the information inside the Hall of Fame/Shame useful to everyone. The posts topics above add nothing useful to help judge a requester's worth. Please limit your posts to facts about the requester.

    Things like the following are permitted:

    • "What can I do about rejections I received?"
    • "Well, it sounds like you were rejected because..."
    • "I contacted the requester and they said..."
    • "My rejections were reversed, here's how you can get yours reversed, too..."
    • “All of my hits were rejected”
    • “I found this requester easy to contact and they have helped me by explaining how to do the hits posted”
    • “The requester never responded to my attempts to contact them”
    • “The requester was able to reverse my rejections”
    • "The pay is great for the work required"
    • "The instructions are unclear and difficult to understand"
    • "They did not pay the bonus promised"
    • "I don't see any other threads about this requester, are they okay to work for?"
    • "These HITs pay too little for the work required, so I passed"

    Use this simple guide to determine if a post belongs in the Hall of Fame/Shame. If it can help somebody to judge a requester, it is okay to post.

    This happens a lot because people click on latest posts and do not realize what part of the forum they are in.

    Thanks for the clarification! That will make the forum a lot cleaner I think.

    That's a really bad excuse. When you click on latest posts, look at the column on the far right. It shows what part of the forum the post is in.

    Please note new changes! You may now discuss other ratings or the Requesters' reputation in the HoF/S.
    It's all good.
