Back on 9/10 I got a rejection due to "missing an attention check", so I emailed them to ask them what I had missed. They replied
"Before receiving your e-mail, we noticed that your job was rejected inadvertently but we will correct the mistake and approve your assignment in two days. Thank you for your understanding,"

They still haven't reversed it, despite me sending an additional handful of very polite emails requesting them to do so.

Amazon probably won't do anything about it even though they admitted that it was an error on their end, will they? So basically bend over and take it? Think there's a point in continuing to send reminder emails? I'm so flipping annoyed.

I'm sorry :( That's happened to me a couple times too. I believe there is a 30 day window for rejections to be reversed, so that rejection is likely going to stick now unfortunately.

if it's a university requester, you can complain to their IRB. also Check to see if it's a student (then email their major professor :). But you have passed the window of approval, I think.

OTOH, complaining sometimes gives me peace of mind :).

eta: my pinkie is broken and typing is slow + got to get ready to do carpool. sorry for disjointed answer!

"They're trying to create a control grid that captures all the information – video, audio – wherever you're at, streams it back to a centralized data repository," he stated, "and then this god-like AI is able to figure out what it is that you're doing, who you're associating with, and create a shadow Facebook profile that you don't know exists, but exists for them."

Hmm ... Just what have we been up to? Shadow Man, Hat Man, Man in Black? Oh, Google Man!:stig:

Gm turkers, i have no idea what Noah's prob is. I did two of his hits yesterday where you continue a conversation naturally but the other player disconnected and i was prompted to submit the hit but was rejected saying i did not complete the full conversation. He was so good but now his hits are iffy and you don't know if a rejection is coming your way for no good reason, ugh

I took off my glasses and then had to hunch over and lean in to see the computer screen.

I'm not awake.


Good morning.
