How to Attract “Turkers” and Be the Ultimate Mechanical Turk Hero!
John David Martin

For new requesters, it is sometimes hard to attract workers. Workers rely on having a great approval rating (>99%) to qualify for some of the best HITs. Workers may steer away from new requesters since many new requesters will reject someone’s work for random reasons. The mturk site does not provide a way for workers to rate requesters; however, workers rely on a third party site called TurkOpticon to know which requesters are fair and which ones aren’t. All requesters should monitor their turkopticon rating (known as T.O. to workers) and respond to any feedback from workers.
