How to Get Mechanical Turk User ID Outside the US:
  • Watched the video about how to get a Mechanical Turk ID for workers living outside the US.
  • The service that you discussed within the video doesn't produce much trust and also the involved cost is too high that we cannot take a risk.
  • Nevertheless, I have researched a bit more on this topic and turned this research into a document (can be turned into a blog post). Please have a review of How to Get Mechanical Turk Worker IDs Outside the US.xlsx in the High Priority folder

Content 2.0 Administrative Support:
  • Received a user-submitted story, which I published after little formatting and cleaning up. Since the story has enough word count, therefore published it individually. Please review "Bad to Worse"
  • Another submission was very short, so I submitted it as a comment under "Funniest Dare List - Read and Share Funny Dares Here"

Other Administrative Support:
  • About broken Aweber mailing list subscription thank you page, I have investigated it and found that the Subscription Thank you page we have deleted some days ago. Now I have rebuilt the same Thank you page.
  • I have recalculated word count for all submissions where we have used "nofollow" "noindex", and made the following changes:
    • Updated the word count within the excelsheet 
    • Merged some of the posts into other pages 
    • Removed the "nofollow" "noindex" tag where the word count is sufficient. 
  • Thank for the explanation regarding the Brainstorming for the FBI on IH-DUYP task. 
  • Distributed more party games website pages to the RSS feed.
