I am instituting a new policy. If you ask me to turn off my music, turn off my phone, be in a qpace, it's gonna cosst you an extra buck. Ditto with maximising my screen or not multitasking. If you pay $18/hour like cyber pilot does, yes, you can do this.
But if you're paying a buck for a ten minute, that is a big fat no. If the sanctity of your data is so sacred, then pay accordingly. It's hard to take your warnings and guilt-trips seriouusly when you're paying 50cents or a buck for a ten survey
Full disclosure - My PhD is complete except for my dissertation at Johns Hopkins. I would never dream of doing some of the shit I've seen researchers do on here. I swear I'm gonna do a study on why so many studies have shit data - it's b/c they paid a quarter for a 30 minute study full of open-ended questions. I mean, how seriously did they expect people to fill this out?
OK, rant over, back to regularly scheduled programming
Well I find it a bit insulting. I already have a quiet environment, Chrome is CLOSE to full screen and I am not playing any music or doing anything else. I just want to complete their study and move on, hopefully not so quickly that they decide my input is invalid. It would be nice if, when they reject a HIT and you question their rejection, they at least respond. And there is no recourse from a rejection unless there is an IRB.

Call it a "surcharge", like they do on your phone bill. Or maybe "non-roaming fee"

beware this requester

TALAL RAHWAN
Real-time interactive decision making activity(~ 25 minutes)

started working on this about 20 minutes in because i had another study i was working on when i caught it. Im going through the study and get to the part where i have to wait for other people to join. as per the instructions I can wait 5 minutes and choose to wait longer or not wait and get my show up fee for $1.50 , or i can wait another 5 minutes, (which i did) After 10 minutes if the team fails to form i would be given a completion code and will be able to submit for my show up fee.. ...

So here is where the problem starts,, I get to the 10 minutes nothing happens, I wait 30 more seconds, still nothing, I message the requester asking what should i do at this point? should i just use my ID to submit? no response , i get to past 15 minutes now ,, still nothing ,, I message again stating its 16 minutes now and im just going to use my id to submit as my timer is starting to expire. I get done sending that and notice I have a new email from the requester stating yeah that is fine to go ahead and use my id. So after reading that i click back on the study page I had open and notice that the study has started and ended because i did not respond in time,,, So i again reach out to the requester and expain again what happened, tell them i would not of even had time to do the study considering ,, and ask if im going to be rejected now because of this,, They tell me that because they can not see my ID because i am no longer eligible then for me to give them my paypal information so they can send me the $1.50 ....

ummm no?
