every 5 minutes the website crashes, but what annoys me more is that no one complains or reacts!
I think that soon we will say goodbye mturk!

This is not the cause!
The collapse occurs even without having PCM active.
I have pointed this out several times.

The reason is that now the mturk platform only supports a limited number of participants because it has been alloted much less data storage space and this can be seen, for example, in the "HIT Tracker" section where all the older data has evaporated and so you can't find a hit that you made a year ago.
All in all, the platform has lost the prestige it enjoyed until recently, as a result of the underground destabilization maneuvers carried out in a surprising way even by some people who were invested with a lot of trust and had the opportunity to disturb the waters as a revenge for reasons known only to them.

gotta be the lowest paying Prolific survey I've seen
Privacy at work T1
By mail2.sysu.edu.cn
  • £0.20 • £1.25/hr
  • 9 mins
  • 273 places



Here is the relevant part about the pay of this study.



We are academic researchers from one large university. This research project is an investigation of the privacy at work with three waves of surveys. There is five-day interval between waves. In each wave, you need to complete a questionnaire, which takes about 1-3 minutes. Participants will receive £ 0.2 in the first wave, £ 0.2 in the second wave and £ 0.8 in the third wave for compensation.

I've given up on making more than a few dollars a day on here. Glad I've got other resources to fall back on. I can remember the day when I could make a $100. a day long gone are those days:banghead::banghead::banghead:
I picked the wrong time to come back for a bit. Just to casually try it out.
Haven't really worked in about 3 years, casually for a few months 2 years ago.
It was meh then but now, this is just crazy. Theres nothing.

Is there anything else out that is similar work, or even different online work, that I can do in addition to MTurk? I'm just trying to do something in my down time to make around $100 a week. MTurk just isn't cutting it anymore.
