Turkers are getting....Picky. Little Brats.
But looking at trends in mTurk, it looks like Turkers may simply be becoming a picky bunch, with fewer and fewer new Turkers be born because all the hype about mTurk is basically dead. The current ones have learned to stop complaining at pricing and to simply not do tasks they don't feel like doing. Heck in the last 30 days I've only done 9 HITs (But I'm a lazy Turker). Amazon has always treated the Turkers as though they were expendable...Since there are always more fish in the sea of bored people on the internet. But, apparently these fish aren't finding the bait...So the question is...Will Requesters raise prices and show a little more concern for Turkers? Doubtfully. But I can see them using better bait. Or maybe just paying for work in Chinese currency? Only time will tell. Tune in next week for "Turkers Gone Lurkin OR Chinese Takeover!" (Sorry I've been watching to much Rocky and Bullwinkle, good show though)
