Turker Nation

Turker Nation is a general forum where (mainly US-based) Amazon Mechanical Turk workers discuss issues related to aspects of work on the platform, such as problems they encounter, suggestions, scripts, tools and advice. When new members join the forum, they have limited access, but with increasing activity and contribution to the community in terms of providing advice and sharing scripts, they can increase their access rights. One area of the forum is the ‘Requesters’ hall of fame/shame ratings,’ where workers note and discuss behaviour, communication, and perceived fairness they experienced in their dealing with a particular requester. There are also areas where workers and requesters may interact directly, for example resolving conflicts or discussing optimal task (HITs) design.
