    Im gonna take a guess and say mturk is not looking for any more indian workers.

    The vast majority of indian workers and notice i didnt say ALL .. But i did say vast majority of indian workers could fawk up a bowl of cereal with out even trying let alone Mturk of all things..

    Sorry to say but i think mturk is tired of kicking indians off left and right so there just not gonna accept any more..

    Again just my 2 cents and sorry if ive offended anyone but its the truth..

    No, the only reason is that now Mturk only wants to allow turkers who are actually serious about working sincerely in mturk. Mturk must have received complaint from their clients that some workers are simply clicking at random without reading any instructions which might be causing some requester money.

    Another reason might be the US economic downfall and the mass unmployment due to which many americans are now enrolling for mturk and so mturk can't manage the huge number of mturk and anyway if mturk ever had an option of selecting between and indian turker and and a US turker they might probably go for a US one.

    Third, there might be many more speculations. As I told earlier mine are nothing more than speculation just like yours but you are free to.

    But the question is how do they judge the seriousness of a worker even before creating an account for them?

    If they have altogether blocked new Indian registration, then they should mention it on their registration page.

    If they want to test the capabilities of an user they should have some qualification test created for the new users - if they pass the qualification test, hire them else fire them.

    Mturk is in the process of suspending new accounts which is the same like firing them. Until this purification process continues, they won't be able to hire new turkers. Damn it, does that means that even I'm at the risk of being axed. OOOOOuuuucccchhhh.

    Where in the world are you s10ii? We know for sure about Indian, Canadian and UK applicants having new accounts refused since the pre-approvals started.

    I think we have also had confirmation of at least 1 new US account being approved.

    Therefore I think we can deduce that new applicants from outside the US are being arbitrarily refused based solely on geographic location.

    If we know where you are, it will help to add data to this knowledge.

    I don't think it's anything personal - they don't know anything about the people being refused except location (as far as I know).
