Hi stormy_mouse,

I am Indian turker as well. While I can certainly understand your point, the problem is that a lot of “surveys” are targeted towards native English speakers. A lot of the researchers are based in the US so it’s understandable that the target audience of their study would be based in US as well. Unfortunately there always will be a big gap in number of surveys available to us as compared to somebody in US or other native English country.

I do have issue when some other non-survey related work is excluded from us, especially when the task is not significant to a specific location. I feel everyone should get equal opportunity to work on those HITs. In these cases, it’s always worth writing to the requester. I have done that and have received positive replies from the requesters on a few occasions so I would strongly suggest you to try that as well.

Hope my answer helped. :)
