1. With the changes to MTurk's payment systems I'm recommending people take a moment to consider securing their on-site banking information from userscripts. TVJS has already been updated to explicitly prevent it from accessing sensitive pages, but workers should strongly consider permanently blacklisting scripts from running on pages containing banking information.

    [Guide] Globally Blacklisting Scripts From Running on MTurk's Bank Account Management Pages will show you how.

    I wouldn't call under $5 a stupid amount of money for the best chicken sandwich I've ever had? Would you?

    there has been a few articles about people paying like a hundred plus dollars for them, hence me asking. i had heard about the stabbing, and a few robberies from the sandwich too.

    I don't know anything about this but I do know this. A man got stabbed, but not because of a chicken sandwich. There are more serious issues at play here than someone getting angry over food.

    Rahul [A25ODJNLUU33NW] Short Personality Survey - $0.50 | PANDA


    Fair

    Unrated

    Unrated
    $10.40 / hour
    00:02:53 / completion time
    Pros:
    Cons:
    Could have been finished in half the time, but there are mandatory 10 second timers on each page for no reason, and only one question per page. And they're not questions that require a lot of calculation or thought; they're personality questions. Baffling design choice.

    Caught that damn Yulia hit
    I know you posted this a bit back but I'm just reading it. I don't think they have higher standards. They just don't typically have an IRB you can run to if they make a "mistake" or flat out try to scam you. Or at least one that's easily found or has a rep that speaks English fluently. Not much different from the scammers right here in the US who don't include any or little identifying information and reject people in droves. Ol Andy's a good example. Just thieves thieving.
