    I'm trying to get past this: "In this study, you will be asked to complete a survey, play a video game and complete additional questions after game play. You will spend around 30 minutes on this HIT."
    Which yes definitely is the worst most disturbing hit I have ever done, with no warning whatsoever. I am so glad my girls werent sitting here a wake as I had no reason to think it wasn't just fine. It took me forever to get it to work on my pc, now i am actually at the game and nothing is happening. I can move and that's it. Does anyone know what I'm missing here? i want my $4 and I want to go to bed. sorry done now.

    I know! I was talking about this in yesterday's thread. I actually had to return it because I was too scared to continue. I did email the requester and they replied back promptly so maybe they will respond with the game fix

    Well, looking at the video that he posted, I'd say it could go either way.

    it's finally moving forward now, had to refresh it, sorry i have never been so upset by a hit before. I don't watch things like that are faked, i do not want to see the real thing.
    I think I started to reply to your post, was going to ask what hit it was but instead just decided to hurry up and get this one working...it didn't even cross my mind it was the same thing!

    Spoilers are my email to them and their reply. They were very nice and just goofed up.
    Hello,
    >
    > I started doing your HIT and at first it was fine and I went through answering all the questions and then I am sent to gory and horrendous pictures?!?
    >
    > I am very careful of all the surveys I do on MTurk and I avoid anything that will have gore in it. In the Amazon FAQ's it says " Include the following phrase in your HIT title: "(WARNING: This HIT may contain adult content. Worker discretion is advised.)" if it will contain explicit or offensive content.
    >
    > The description of your HIT does not even hint at all to the fact that the taker would be subject to seeing dead children or bloody plane crash victims. I cannot finish this HIT as I'm afraid of what may pop up next as every picture was worse than the one before.
    >
    > Please, next time you post a HIT make the warning present so people are not subjected to these types of pictures with out being informed (I would have NEVER attempted it if I had known).

    Reply:

    Hi Tracy,

    I want to sincerely apologize for this grave error. We, of course,
    generally put a trigger warning in the HIT description, the consent
    form, and again just prior to the images being loaded. This time was
    simply an omission on our part as we copied and adjusted the HIT from
    a similar game we posted recently.

    We fixed the current consent form and instructions page immediately
    after receiving your message and we appreciate you bringing this to
    our attention. You notifying us will help other workers who are in the
    same position avoid taking this HIT.

    Again, I am very sorry and I thank you for letting us know of this
    error. I am grateful to you for bringing this to our attention.

    Best,
    Regan

    I'm glad you wrote to them. At least they intended to warn people I guess? That was a big omission. I think I will be writing.

    Go so far to ask for compensation for your time wasted?
