    Hi guys, my name is Callum, I'm 18 and from Scotland. I'm completely new to MTurk and am currently waiting for my account to be approved. Thought I'd sign up and start reading up about MTurk and how to maximise efficiency before I get approved.

    See you all around!

    You're doing yourself a huge favor by reading up first! MTurk is still, definitely a learning curve, so don't be afraid to ask questions once you get your feet wet.

    They've decided that I don't fit the criteria to become a turker, that sucks. Anyone have any idea why?

    They might not be accepting turkers from your country. I know they've recently opened up registrations outside the US again, but I'm not entirely sure which country's they're currently allowing.
