MTurk was launched publicly on November 2, 2005. Following its launch, the Mechanical Turk user base grew quickly. In early- to mid-November 2005, there were tens of thousands of jobs, all of them uploaded to the system by Amazon itself for some of its internal tasks that required human intelligence. HIT types have expanded to include transcribing, rating, image tagging, surveys, and writing.

just accepted some random 1 cent survey to see if that will load and same thing. Its the hits landing page that wont load for any hit. Any other page on mturk works just fine.

Edit nvm now the hits page on Mturk is not working either. constant loading circle.

Edit # 2 i guess mturk is broken. landing page of hits wont load at all. stuck on constant loading circles.
