    Hello,

    I'm fairly new and wanted to contribute by making a Post on information involving Rejections/Blocks/Suspensions. I will do my best to keep it updated. If anyone else wants to help me out, I would appreciate it.

    Please, when posting about Rejections/Blocks/Suspension, keep it civil and respectful overall. I know Rejections/Blocks/Suspensions are hard to deal with. However, just try your best to give Amazon Mturk Support Team and Requesters on Mturk the benefit of the doubt. Lastly, try and respect one another. Hopefully, we are all here to try and keep our account from being hit with a Rejection/Block/Suspension.

    Example of information Post (to try and keep it organized):

    Requester Name: John Doe
    Hit Name (Optional): Click on Blue Squares
    Report reason for Rejection/Block/Account Suspension (a sentence or two of Hits rejected and reason why): "I was Rejected In 15/20 Hits for missing a Blue Square."
    Resolution/Additional Information : "I reached out to requester and was responsive. He has overturned rejections for the unclear instructions provided in Hit."


    Suspended: Amazon Mturk
    Reason (if any): Received too many Blocks on account
    Resolution/Additional Information: "Informed that account received too many rejections and blocks on Account. Account was closed."

    *Please, feel free to give any advice, suggestions, comments, tips, etc. My PM box is open. Not everything is set in stone in this post. I encourage everyone that has an idea to reach out.

    Thank You so much for letting me be part of the community. A special shout out to @kryssyy@kryssyy for the idea and helping me put this all together.

    Resolution/Additional Information : If any new information is available, it will be updated ASAP.

    I think if you stay above 98% you can accept most assignments on mturk. I'm at 99.999 something or other.

    But the big yardstick is what will sink your ability to pick up work. So, in general, above 98% is good for that.
