Mturkgrind Forum Rules
Rule #1 - General Respect of Others
Do not make derogatory comments, post images, or use avatars that are disrespectful to others' race, gender, sexual preference, religion, ideologies, or political affiliation. Trolling is strictly forbidden. Do not post personally identifiable information such as email addresses or phone numbers. Be respectful of other MTurk-related forums and websites. We here at MTG believe this rule is common sense, the saying "treat others how you would like to be treated" applies here. You wouldn't talk to someone in a rude manner in real life, so we expect the same treatment of and from all members on MTG. Note: Swearing is allowed on MTG, however we ask that you keep it to a minimum where possible.
Rule #2 - Survey Content
Discussing the content of surveys, qualification tests or revealing "golden" answers in HITs is strictly prohibited. Do not reveal attention checks for any HITs. Survey content means anything past the MTurk HIT preview page.
Rule #3 - Scamming and/or Cheating
We do not allow posts promoting the violation of MTurk's Terms of Service or posts that encourage anyone to not following requester instructions. Please be respectful of what a requester has asked of you to do, if you feel that the requester is being unfair (such as paying poorly for a task) just don't do the hit.
Rule #4 - "Awesome HITS" Threads
The daily "Awesome HITS" thread is mainly for HITs and MTurk-related conversation. Some general off-topic conversation is fine, but any off-topic conversation that becomes excessive may be moved to a separate thread. Please PM a moderator about any moderation issues rather than posting in the daily thread, or feel free to report the post in question using the inbuilt reporting feature on each post. For general discussion, we have a dedicated Lounge forum which you may post whatever you like as long as these rules are followed.
Rule #5 - Prohibited Content
The posting of pornographic, gore or shock material, links to copyright material (such as movies, music, etc. aka torrents) are strictly prohibited. The exception to this rule is posting HIT links that contain adult content (I.E a hit is adult content orientated).
Rule #6 - Scripts
Scripts are fine as long as they don't auto-submit HITs. Also do not post PANDA (previewandaccept) links without context.
Rule #7 - Intoxication
You may not be intoxicated while completing HITs. MTG allows you access while you're intoxicated (such as alcohol or drugs), however it is strictly forbidden to work whilst intoxicated, as such you may not use MTG to complete HITs posted on our forum.
Rule #8 - Age
Registration to MTG requires you to be 18 years of age or older.
Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact an MTG staff member which can be found here.
These rules are subject to change at any given time as deemed fit by management, it is up to you the user to be familar with these rules at all times.
