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.

    They could at least make it a little more balanced. .50c to 20.00 is a pretty large gap. Lol. I totally agree on the sketchy feel though.

    yeah $20 to .50c is a insane gap. and yeah i also didnt like that the $2 wasnt really that when they spelled it out for you, its like wow....ok then
    just the entire thing felt off and in comments i told them that much and about how the gap in bonus was just insane to have a 50/50 split on it

    Oh right, it's actually only 1.50, plus the .50 for the hit, and then if you actually win the .50 bonus, they'll give you everything. I was a little miffed about that myself.

    The gap was very likely survey design. The requester doesn't care how you feel about how "fair" the payment seems, they want to get their research done.
