    I don't understand why they would reinstate if they weren't going to let you turk?? Seems odd.

    After re-instation my Payment account functionalities were disabled and as result my MTurk identity cudnt be re-verified as an Indian and thats the reason i cant continue.

    Got a mail from them that i will need to create a new one after closing the old one with a new email.Means Mturk will be closed too..So no more Turking as Mturk isnt axepting new non-US members anymore and also new accounts at amazon and mturk cudnt b created with an old name that exists in their database..Holy Shite !!

    Seriously? That is shite. I get how/why it would be easier for them, from a data security perspective but...wow - that's a serious middle finger to the rest of the world :(

    Favorite childhood cartoon was "Jem and the Hollograms", now I watch too much "Dora" with the little one.
    Favorite animal would be monkeys
    Favorite school subject was English.
    My favorite requester is Crowdsource, especially when they put up a large batch of categorize the website HITs
    I really love to read but MTurk has really cut into the time I have for that!

    I, too, was way off on many of our members ages and genders.
