    Well...I feel...welll....I guess if there is ever a need for having experience of tracing over male zebra genitals, I can put that down now on my resume. Thank you Computer Vision Turk for making it all possible. :trophy: (seriously though gave me a laugh and broke up the monotony for the evening)

    Fwiw, unless it's been changed recently, there isn't anything in mturk's TOS that states that workers cannot use mturk when outside of their country of origin. Iirc, it says something or other like services are not offered to citizens of eligible countries that are residents of another country. I always interpreted that to mean that if you are a US citizen that's living in some country where mturk isn't available, you can't open an account with a foreign address or cash to a foreign bank account just because you're American.

    That being said, that doesn't mean that there's no risk in working when outside the country. Amazon's rules aren't clear, their CS sucks, and their enforcement of lots of things is super random. On top of that, I'm sure they do actually care about people selling accounts to workers in ineligible countries, and people who aren't actually taking part in that probably get mistakenly caught up in enforcement.

    I was out of the country a lot the last 3 years, and I did a fair amount of work still, but only for a handful of requesters that I had already done work for forever. I didn't consider it to be immoral in any way, but I did consider it to be a small risk.

    Thank you for reaching out to me. The codes that were rejected were really far off from the ones that were issued. Is it possible you copy and pasted a code from another survey by accident? Unfortunately, our protocol specified that any mismatched codes would be rejected and responses that did not receive compensation would be deleted and not included in our analyses. At this point, we have filled the number of participants we needed and they have been compensated, so I cannot overturn the rejection. I wish I had better news.

    :hammered:At least it was only 50 cents

    Yeah, I'm with @PeachyRider@PeachyRider ... I think I'm going to let that requester get some more experience under his belt before I complete any of those hits.

    ETA: At least there's some basic quals on it, now.
