    Who are your favorite requesters on MTurk? This might be because they pay well, they post frequently, they're responsive to email, they have fun HITs, or whatever other factors you can think of. You can include requesters who still post now or requesters who have posted in the past. Tell us about your favorites!

    I really loved Andrew Carman who had big batches of HITs to identify plates of food. They always made me so hungry and it was really interesting to see what other people were eating.

    Another favorite of mine was Taste of the World. Their older HITs were to identify whether a restaurant was closed or open. They still post now, but the HITs are different and they've had a closed qualification for a long time.

    I think my current favorite who posts frequently is Ben Peterson, who posts HITs to rate photos for dating profiles or business profiles.

    Past favorites: Before they got complicated and reformatted I rally liked the ProductRnR relevance hits. BlueJay Labs the hits were fun, but on top of that, the requester was so responsive and funny. (He would make jokes and everything. I feel like requesters don't engage very often so when they do and act like humans it's really funny.)

    Current: Probably Sergey Schmidt Sometimes he's hit and miss, but when he's good he's really good.

    One of the very few survey requesters I keep track of is Sandro Ambuehl. His hits usually pay pretty well for the time and he's one of the most polite requesters I've ever dealt with.

    +1 for sergey, but both past and current

    Past: When I was just starting out he'd post a good $20-30+ worth of surveys that took a few mins each at least weekly. Then after I got his qual it was pretty nice having semi-regular batches.

    Current: Sergey when he's firing. Though I think a few people screwed this up for the rest of us (re: the 10c/15c batches), he still tends to put out some decent work.
    Then hotels-- they went qual a while back for some reason, but they still put out regular batches. Its not the most money, but its regular and I like that.
    (I guess Viral Mturk would go here too since its a regular $10+?)

    Dem Wallstreets though.

    Srsly though. All-time favorite is henry (rip). Hourly rate has never been matched since with anything else. Current fave is prolly Sergey by default because his good batches are...really good.

    Right now I'm quite fond of Trulia... those are always well paid and fast.

    And dammit, I like Jeff Du and his corn. Not the lettuce though.

    I felt the same way. Heck after OCMP5 abandoned me I still can't recapture my former glory. I want them back. I want all my OCMP back and Alegion back.

    NoblisCV recently. They do big batches where they give you a google link to some one and show you a picture and ask if the person is it. Fast and fun. They take a long time to approve the HIT though.
