anyone here use a VPN while turking? What kinds of (negative) issues can it throw up? I'm just trying to speed up page loads, and since I'm in Bangkok, Thailand, I wanted to test out running a VPN node in Singapore to see if it improved page load speeds for me.... cheers.

the only negative I'm aware of is w/some survey requesters (who don't like it because they are looking at what country you turk from)

It's a pretty big national day.

Other than Halloween, Happy National Knock Knock Joke Day, Happy National Caramel Apple Day, and
a day to celebrate the invention that is going to get a workout today, Happy National Doorbell Day!

Yeah, thanks, thought it might be surveys that would be the main issue. Guess I can try and remember to turn the VPN off before doing surveys :)

last night was Cabbage Night
(apparently that's what they call Mischief Night up here)
so I'm a little worried about what I might find when the sun comes up.
Last year they broke all of our neighbors Pumpkins (don't worry! I went out and bought them new ones :)

I've never heard of it and keep telling people how glad I am that people don't really egg houses anymore on Halloween but I guess they still do!

MF Kneer - I read carefully but still was not able to continue as if I did not pass the attention check.

This is the one that requires English, but is in Hindi. You can translate, except for the check video, which is spoken Hindi... which pretty much stops you. Maybe they'll correct this, assuming that it isn't a Halloween trick after all.

Happy Halloween! Thunderstorms still in the forecast for the trick or treat period, but our township is standing firm behind their "rain or shine" policy so far. It's really warm here today compared to other years. Our poor pumpkins are barely holding on.

Us too the pumpkins are looking pretty sad they barely made it to today. Maybe the cold temps will help.
Happy Halloween!

Thanks. I've asked Mturk twice specifically about using VPNs in other countries, and both times they told me it was absolutely fine. One reply was was something like "we don't use your IP address to detect which country you are in." ... so make of that what you will :)
