    I was thinking the same thing. Maybe it doesn't matter how many posts you have if you are not posting x amount per day. I don't know. I'm thinking I'll never gain access, so I just pretend that the rest of the forum no longer exists.

    To get full access to Turker Nation is based on several factors and the post count is only one of them. But, I can safely say a minimum number of posts a day is not one of them.

    I don't think this new rule is fair at all. I don't use Mturk all the time because I have a part time job. If I have something to say, I'll come and post. I don't work on tons of hits so I obviously can't really tell everyone about hits I don't know about. The whole point of coming to this website for me, is to check up or post about a random requester and then be on my way after a few days. Now I can't really do that anymore, because I don't turk on a frequent enough basis. I feel insulted because it's like this rule is trying to punish me for not contributing... well, I have!

    I joined the new forum as soon as I knew it existed and I was a member of the old forum too, so it's not like my post count is even accurate.

    Having access to the entire forum is a privilege not an entitlement. Every member on the board follows the same rules and has had to meet the requirements before gaining access. The rules are here to protect us (Turkers) and the information given. It is just one level of protection to help keep the scammers from seeing information easily and hurting good turkers that are working hard to earn a living.

    Please read the rules - especially Rule 10.

    Rule 10. Whining about having to post a few times before getting access to the good information on the forum will not be tolerated either. If a bank kept all it's money at the front door I think they'd have a problem with people stealing it. We have the same problem, so we've had to move all our information into the bank vault. It doesn't take a lot of effort to get it, but we're hoping it cuts down on the number of bad people who have access. Honestly, if you don't like it we don't care - we're looking at protecting ALL of mTurk, from Turkers to Requesters, and not pleasing the individual. Whine once we'll forgive you, continue to complain and you'll lose access to the entire forum.

    Oh well.
    Go elsewhere for your information then.


    I feel insulted that you want to come here and complain.
    I hope you get banned here.

Example: the other day my question about transferring money had been asked and answered, but since I didn't know the right words to use, it was up to someone kindly pointing out the link to the thread with the answer for me to find it.

    While I think unrestricted is a good word, please be advised there are still some rules that apply! For instance, talking about cheating or breaking Amazon MTurk's TOS. Just a heads up :-p

    Guess the cheating and breaking rules never crossed my mind.

    a few times i've signed onto this site and been shocked by people openly talking about cheating the mturk system in some way...

    then again, i was getting fast food a few months ago (yes, i love fried chicken LOL) and the person in front of me in line and the person ringing him up were talking about pirating movies still in the theater...

    Being the one that watches the chat room, those are things that will force me to take action. I will answer people's questions and help in whatever way I am able.
