“Are we all in the same boat?” Customizable and Evolving Avatars in Online Crowd Work

Figure 1: The image is the worker community space. The interface has buttons that allow it to refresh the subset of displayed workers, filter on workers with a similar mood, order workers on level, and load more avatars. The avatar of the worker is surrounded by the other workers’ avatars to induce a sense of group identification.
