    Hello,

    I have been running a study through mTurk with a task called "Decision-making game; up to 10-20 minutes long". One set of HITs I posted on Friday had terrible delays with the servers so some participants had extreme timeouts and in some cases weren't able to submit the HIT. I would like to make it right and compensate you for your time, but unfortunately, I can't contact workers through mTurk if they didn't submit my HIT.

    So if you're a worker that this happened to, I apologize for the inconvenience. Please email me directly at saj2@williams.edu with your mTurk worker ID, and I'll do my best to make it right.

    Best regards,

    -Sarah

    @Sarah Jacobson

    I would remove your email and type it out in spaces so it can't be picked up by those who aren't supposed to have it.

    Thank you for the suggestion; but like other professors my email address is easy to find on the internet so I didn't see any need to make it harder for people here!

    It is more of an anti bot thing but :dunno: that email is fairly public so I'm not sure how much of a difference it would make.
