      I did do something like this before, but MTS has no record of it. That is happening a lot to me, MTS doesn't show even though I know I have worked for a certain requester

      cyvamp I couldn't remember if I had done a first one and searched Hit Tracker but nothing showed up. When I started doing the hit I recognized I had done one before.

      ZeldaFoot I was somewhat amazed that Mturk responded.

      Fisherman you can get some sleep tonight. I slept terrible myself and woke at 4am and couldn't get back to sleep. And I have to go to the butt surgeon in a few hours to see what he can do. Not looking forward to it.

      Okay, this is just me spitballing, but between the emails going out and the payments glitch, I wonder if there is some sort of systemwide Amazon glitch. Or if Amazon has been hacked.

      It sounds like it is some glitch with Amazon. There's no valid reason Bear or this person with 0 rejections and 600k HITs should get an email like that. Something is definitely "off".

    Happy Friday! Yesterday ended up being pretty good, despite me starting the day out pretty busy. Hopefully today is just as good.
    Names have been drawn for the Our Hit Stop Gift Exchange. Don't forget to send a gift by December 21!.

If you continue to complete HITs without exercising human intelligence in a conscientious manner then your account will be suspended.

      We have forwarded your case to our investigations team to review this warning.

      We will reach out to you with a review decision in 2-3 business days.

        Every time something strange happens on Mechanical Turk, the first thing we all do (after saying or thinking a few bad words) is run to the forum to see if it is just us. Usually others are in the same situation, a rejection, trouble with transfers, a warning etc. We share information that is important and offer support where we can. This just shows how valuable the forum is and it is time to say Thank You to all who contribute here and especially to Fisherman .

          It really helps when something goes haywire to have someone say that is was them (Amazon, requester, whoever) and not you. I know it makes me feel better

        Hi guys, well I haven't been exercising my human intelligence in a conscientious manner on Mturk for a while but I woke up early to a phone call this morning, so I figured I would get on and exercise my human intelligence a bit. Problem is, my human intelligence currently has a bug by way of an ongoing anxiety attack since Monday. At least I haven't received any random and unwarranted threats from Amazon's non-human intelligence which is never exercised in a conscientious manner. Nor is their human intelligence, for that matter.

        May it be a productive day!

          Thanks Bear. I do but i don't think it's very effective and I can't see my doctor more than once per three months thanks to insurance. I could probably get a different one and see them more often but finding a good psychiatrist is a nightmare. Things have been ramped up since the car accident, and this week I just can't seem to calm down.
