a week ago I ran a survey on MTurk using Inquisit 4 web. However, after I had run the
study, I received a message from Amazon saying that I had violated their policy
of not requiring workers to download and install software and that my account
would be suspended if I continue to post such HITs. Even after
I reminded them of the fact that Inquisit was used in combination with MTurk in
dozens of studies they would not reassess their judgment. I am deeply shocked
by how unfairly they treat requesters and I wonder if others encountered the same silly opposition from Amazon? I mean this is simply ridiculous given that there are currently HITs on MTurk for which workers need to download the Inquisit plugin.
So is anybody here who uses the MTurk subject pool? Has anybody come across the same problem? If yes, how did you make a deal with them? I very much appreciate your feedback!!!
