Any UK or Non-US equivalents to Mechanical Turk?
Share on:

I love the idea of mechanical Turk, and think the principle behind it rocks, but I am in the UK and thus not allowed to use it.

Are there any "foreigner friendly" similar services or alternatives out there?

Hi Rondo,

Thanks very much for that.

Have you ever used the service before, does it have an active memberbase?

I used microworkers and the tasks were done well, althought the commission that the site takes seemed to be quiet high to me.

Do clients also have to reside in US or have US based presence to use the service? I am talking about http://requester.mturk.com
