After giving it a go for nearly nine months, the board will be closed December 1. It seems like the right time to shut it down since most members no longer post and there are less guests.
Mechanical Turk is kind of a community, so if you like being a member of a forum, hopefully you'll find another one that you feel at home at. Turkopticon has a list of other forums here: turkopticon.ucsd.edu/ If you find a forum to switch to, it would be great if you would let people here know where you'll be, in your signature.
Thank you to everyone who joined, for all your wonderful posts, and for being willing to give this little board a try.
