    WebomateS has recently joined as an MTurk requester, publishing small batches of HITs weekly. In recent weeks there has been trouble accessing the application under test. We extend our sincere apologies to the MTurk worker community for the inconvenience. We appreciate your alerting us to the issues.
    We investigated your reported technical difficulties and combed through our system logs. Indeed there are technical issues in the application access area in our domain. The fixes in our system are underway.
    In the meantime, we are initiating a new daily series of HITs. These will present no application access issues. The HITs test a public consumer-facing web site. There will be one HIT per day with 100 assignments with an expiry of 4 hours.

    When the HITs are ready, we will notify you via MTurk email if you have submitted HITs to us prior and also find Hits Link below.

    I've missed these completely. Are you only using people who have worked them previously?

    Hi All,

    As part of our new series HIT publish, we have posted a $1 HIT. The HIT is to test a public consumer-facing website with an expiry of 4 hours.

    Link to the HIT: https://www.mturk.com/mturk/preview?groupId=37ZUGP9HACMPMXX12I7WP68QW7O18D

    We are looking forward to you to take up the HIT.

    We appreciate your participation!

    Please reach out to us for any feedback or any issue you face in completing the HIT (possibly with screenshot) at support@webomates.com.

    Note: We will give bonus for feedback that helps us to achieve the 100 assignments in 4 hours.


    Thank you,

    WebomateS Team

    All due respect, but just from a glance at one of your HITs I can see that it's badly underpaid. I'd consider that amount of work in a $3 HIT as filler for a very slow day.

    Hi Fellow Workers,

    Due to the technical mistake in the previously published cycle, notified by Worker, we had to expire and re-publish the HIT with updated instruction for opening help page for taking a screenshot in a new tab.

    Link to the HIT: https://www.mturk.com/mturk/preview?groupId=38GRQLZZRR2RRB2WNBJ1DNLZH660CI

    If you have already worked on our assignment in the previous batch than ignore the email.

    We apologize for the inconvenience caused.

    Note: In our previous Hit screenshot size limit was 3 MB and now it is increased to 10 MB.

    We appreciate your feedback and participation!

    Thanks
    Webomates Support

    I took the qualification test and passed, but the link to the bar graph in the test was broken, just fyi. That must have been the one question I got wrong =-)
