How Turk Alert Works

Do you see a wrong/old name for a requester?
Is a Requester listed as "Not in Database"?
Please fill out this form to let us know so we can correct it.

Turk Alert constantly monitors Amazon's Mechanical Turk (MTurk) and keeps track of all new HITs posted.

When a requester that you're subscribed to posts new HITs, you'll receive an e-mail notification with a link to the HITs on MTurk.

Important Info About E-Mails:

  • E-mail alerts are sent every 5 minutes. This means there will be, at most, a 5-minute delay between the HIT going live and a notification being sent, with an average delay of 3 minutes.

  • You may receive up to a maximum of 15 e-mail alerts each day, dependent upon both the number of requesters to whom you are subscribed, and their HIT-posting frequency. You can increase your email limit by upgrading your account.

  • You will be notified by e-mail of any subscribed requesters' new HITs ONCE PER HOUR at most; for example, if Requester X posts new HITs at 8:15 AM, you will receive an alert if you haven't already received an alert from this requester in the past hour. This prevents any one requester from using up all of your allotted alerts should they post several successive batches of HITs closely together.

  • E-mail counts are reset each night at midnight CST.
