    My HIT for the "ASU Speech Research" was rejected, citing:
    "Your workerID does not match the ones in the title."
    I've only been doing HITs for about three weeks, and I had no idea that I could do a HIT, if it wasn't meant for me. Otherwise, I wouldn't have done it. I explained this to the requester and asked if they would remove the rejection. Has anyone ever experienced this, and do you think they'll remove it?

    Its never happened to me but i've had rejections before...

    Anyways I looked it up and yes in the title it says "This HIT is for Worker AYIFHDQSXQJ6B, A2X977GVQ6L90X, A1Q5RFVJKMZBEN -- All others will be rejected"

    Screenshot -- http://prntscr.com/m660ah

    So yea you weren't supposed to do it.. Those number are your worker ID. So pretty much don't do anything that says stuff like that. Just be more careful and no I doubt they will reverse the rejection but maybe if they are really nice and see your side of the story it will happen.

    They should have their hits set up to where you have to enter your Worker ID before you can even start, and if it doesn't match, you can't start it. Hell, I don't even look at the HIT titles, most of the time. I'm usually in such a hurry to click on them, before it's too late, and I get this message:
    There are no more of these HITs available
    Browse all available HITs.

    It's a compensation hit for those specific workers. There's around 600 compensation hits from kim jaewoo alone for the past week or so.

    You're going to be bumping into quite a lot more of these types of compensation HITs among other qualifications asked on MTurk. Ignoring the title is not a good long term strategy for your approval rate.

    Good morning.
    I'm up to $7.00 so far. I can finally afford that Burger King value meal I've had my eye on for a while. Who knows? By the end of the day, I may be able to afford to rent a movie from RedBox as well.
