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 asked if we were allowed to do it again when they put the new ones up.

    "Yes, no user will be blocked from completing the HIT again.

    We will run a new batch in the upcoming days."

    ... When requesters fail to provide a fair average hourly wage, or worse, steal the labor of workers with unfair rejections of completed tasks, it is these more vulnerable workers who suffer disproportionately. An pertinent example that immediately comes to mind of the sort of unfair conditions that are extant on the platform would be this very note I am currently writing; the requester in this case has instructed workers to provide a thoughtful and relevant note to you, but has only offered a single dollar in compensation for a task requiring a significant amount of extemporaneous writing ...

    I was so pissed by this. I sort of Grinched them out in a comment at the end about how they made the test so hard to complete by not putting it all on one page and how it wouldn't scroll smoothly and show all the answers on one page so we could check all answers before submitting and how we had to sit through an extremely long "children's" video for the instructions, when one short document would be better. I thought I must have really missed something. What I think they should do is just give all of us a $40 bonus. I don't want to go through all BS again, just to get to the lottery part.
