Default Any UK or Non-US equivalents to Mechanical Turk?

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.

Hi E-supreme I read an old post from you about Mturk if your outside the US! I want to start working for Mturk I got accepted as I put in I was from US but they are also asking for social security? Can your trick as you call it help me or will it only work if you are looking for work to get done for you as an imployer? I'm from ireland also out of work and am pretty desperate at this stage? Thanks

I know this is an old thread, but has anyone received any information about moving the money to the UK or setting up an account to receive the money while living in the UK?
