    Sadly I travel by bus all the damn time. Finally it's paying off with a 70 cent MTurk survey. :p:p:p

    This requester was so stubborn that I had to get his ethics office involved. My guess is he didn't like the message he received from me after he rejected. This took an email chain over a week with his ethics office.

    Luckily, the EO decided to show me the reply they received from this Dr. Roy (who's the PhD supervising one of his students running this study) & I caught him telling two separate lies about why he's not paying me that I was able to prove thanks to Turkerview.

    1) He stated that they created some hidden benchmark of 5 minutes & rejected everyone who finished faster.
    I linked the EO to his consent form which doesn't state anywhere that we must take at least 5 minutes & anyone under that would be rejected. It's simply a time estimate so they can't create some hidden benchmark & reject us on that basis. He has the option to use timed-based pages if he desires and he didn't choose to do that.
    2) He tried stating that I was the only participant who finished under 5 minutes to which I linked the EO his TV profile to show the other person who posted a review about a rejection, who also had a faster completion time than me had already had his rejection reversed. I suggested that this PhD was holding a grudge against me because he didn't like getting a message from me calling him out.

    This dude had a bunch of excuses as to why he couldn't pay me or reverse this rejection. This is some of the stuff this PhD tried telling his Ethics Office:
    • I had to take this up with mTurk support because they didn't know how to reverse it (yet he had already reversed someone else's & it showed that on TV)
    • they were paying participants in Australian currency so they couldn't pay the conversion rate to me via bonus (...what??)
    • that I was the one & only participant who finished under 5 minutes (I finished at 4:50, really? but this was false anyway)
    All of this over 40 cents. I stated in my last reply to the EO that this is very childish over 40 cents & 10-20 seconds, how this has turned into a battle of egos & how ridiculous it is that this email chain is required for an academic organization to do what's right.

    This is the 3rd noob requester in the last couple of months I've had to send emails to an IRB, advocate or ethics office to get overturned. Make sure you guys are vigilant when doing studies for them if they have no ratings yet. They're not all bad as I just had a $3.00 HIT that took 4 minutes from Walter last night that was new and he approved 30 minutes later.

    Stay vigilant!

    I tracked down a guy who rejected my hits once an obvious shady requester. I found out where he worked and who his manager was and posted the info on a bunch of forums and discords lol. Must have worked because I ended up getting a reply about how he wont be abusing mturk anymore because he no longer has his job with the company. I really wish we had more power against bad requesters the approval rate is a good start tho.

    I haven't gotten a rejection in over a year, and when I do I pitch quite the fit. Its also why I shy away from batches so I kind of wish amazon would make the rules a little more up front for us end users

    ABOUT Roasted Duck hit yesterday, the one where he said to do the survey BEFORE you accept.
    I emailed him, and he sent me to 3BAKUKE4AKE5V12V66JUVYQ37IXR1A for payment

    Search can't find that, and nothing for "duck" or "caltech.edu" or the site of the survey, http://minty.ssel.caltech.edu/

    Anyone have any ideas before I email him again?
