    Hi Mturk community members,


    Sid Suri here. I just wanted to address the recent HIT group we posted called Rating Movie Posters. We noticed that this HIT has generated some discussion because it requires an access code.


    First of all, we want to sincerely apologize for any confusion or frustration this HIT has caused, that is not our intention. As some of you have noticed these HITs are part of an experiment, so if you’re not interested in participating or dealing with access codes, you can ignore these HITs altogether. We will post different HITs in the future that won’t require an access code.


    Second, rest assured codes do in fact exist and are being continuously sent to hundreds of randomly selected workers as fast as possible. Codes provide access to a subset of the total HIT group and may expire as Turkers use them. You can use any access codes you find to try and work on HITs in this group.


    Thanks for all your interest in my HITs and sorry we didn’t make this post sooner.


    Sincerely,


    Sid

    Dear MTurk community members,


    Many of you came across a HIT we posted today called Rating Movie Posters, requiring access codes. As indicated, this HIT was part of an experiment on communication in the MTurk community.


    Because access codes were randomly granted to members of the community many Turkers did not have immediate access to these HITs leading to much confusion, frustration, anger and time loss. We deeply regret the trouble this HIT group caused. This was never our intention. We are committed to posting HITs that do not take advantage of the the community or its members and the creation of this HIT created circumstances that broke our commitment. For that we are sincerely sorry.


    We did not anticipate the effects this HIT would produce, so you if you feel like you’ve been significantly inconvenienced please do not hesitate to contact us directly: ssuri0@outlook.com


    Regards,


    Sid
