Project Description

Developing a Wordpress plugin that will allow a user to create, approve & reject Amazon Mechanical Turk HITs from within their WP dashboard. Approved HITs will then have the ability to be posted to the blog on a user defined schedule (i.e. 1 post every 1 day, 4 posts/week, etc.) (SEE DELIVERABLES FOR DETAIL) This plugin partly created by another coder who then disappeared. If you'd like a copy of the work that was done, please let me know and I will send it to you.

## Deliverables

Developing a Wordpress plugin that will allow a user to create, approve & reject Amazon Mechanical Turk HITs from within their WP dashboard. Approved HITs will then have the ability to be posted to the blog on a user defined schedule (i.e. 1 post every 1 day, 4 posts/week, etc.) We want to be able to create HIT's in bulk. HIT's will be writing assignments, we'll allow the plugin users to describe the HIT assignment. HIT's will be based on keywords - so the plugin user would upload a .txt file with different keywords and the plugin will create seperate HIT's for each keyword. SO the plugin user might want 3 posts, one on "juice cleanse" one on "master cleanse" and one on "apple juice cleanse". They would create a HIT template saying something along the lines of "Please write a 100 word blog post on {keyword}. All spelling and grammar must be corect." The plugin would change the token {keyword} to juice cleanse, master cleanse, apple juice cleanse etc. respectively for all the HIT's it creates. Plugin user will be able to determine how much they will pay per HIT and the HIT's will be created on Mechanical Turk via their API. The workers on Mechanical Turk will than accept the HIT job, and the posts that they write will be automatically posted to the blog. If the plugin user has set a minimum word length for the post, the plugin will check that the post meets the minimum word length and automatically reject it if it does not. Plugin user should have the option to have the HIT's workers write be posted automatically, or should have the option to review them (perhaps in "Draft" status within WP?) before they are approved in Mechanical Turk and the worker paid. Plugin user should also have the ability to determine how often these posts are scheduled to appear, i.e. one every day, every 3 days, once per week, etc. Ideally, if a plugin user loads of the plugin with, say, 30 keywords and has the plugin set to post the writings HIT workers make automatically, 1 per day, then plugin user's blog would get a new post every day for 30 days, completley hands-free. Some work on plugin done by another coder, you may use their framework or start from scratch (if you'd like a copy of the plugin in it's current state, please let me know and I will upload it for you). The way the plugin is now it has way too many options (original programmer seemed to integrate every aspect of the Mturk API when we really didn't need everything) and the interface is not intuitive at all, I'm not sure how to use it. Amazon has API instructions on their website. 1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.


2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Worker in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the worker's Worker Legal Agreement).
