    "The new Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) Worker site now enables Workers to discover, accept, and submit Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs), to Request Qualifications, to view detailed status of HITs they’ve submitted, and to disburse their earnings. The MTurk homepage has also been refreshed with simpler navigation and a new look-and-feel."

    "Workers that registered after November 1st 2017, have been using the new Worker website as their default experience. These customers have helped share valuable and thoughtful feedback to improve the site further. We’ve drawn from that feedback as we’ve continued to add functionality to the new Worker site."

    So they basically redesigned the entire site based on the advice of people who know jacksh*t about mturk.
    Am I missing something?
    Don't they have someone on staff who's job is to KNOW how mturk work gets done?
    If they don't, that is CRAZY.
