Requestors, if you read one thing here and decide to follow just the one thing, please let it be this: STOP ASKING WHETHER WE'VE DONE SIMILAR STUDIES! The answer is almost always going to be yes, even though you might see a no, because after 1000s of surveys and other tasks completed on mTurk, just by odds, one is likely to have done at least one study similar to yours. There are members here who have done >1 million hits over the years. I have over 120K hits in my time. Do you really think your survey is unique? Trust me. It's not. So, please, for the love of everything good, true and beautiful, stop asking whether the person or bot doing your survey has done studies similar to yours. We have. I promise you.
