    But do you have display scaling turned on for that monitor? I get this error when I have the image on my monitor with scaling turned on.

    Yes it's on "Maintain Display Scaling" these are the other options -
    Maintain Aspect Ratio
    Scale Full Screen
    Center Image
    Customize Aspect Ratio

    I don't know where those options are but they aren't related to what I'm asking.

    mine is the same except mine says 100% where yours says 150%. on the desktop when I left click - go to graphics properties - click "Display" there is a section titled "Scaling"

    not that it matters for this batch, but just salty about not being able to submit those super bowl streaming delay HITs while at work.

    If yours says 100% the issue isn't related to scaling and I have no clue why it wouldn't work.

    Note: Starting March 9th 2019, MTurk is deprecating its support for "Touchscreens" due to feedback that the screens were unhelpful to the majority of Workers. Please note that all of the information the "Touchscreens" submitted is available to be submitted via traditional devices.

    You could have paid @Kadauchi or @ChrisTurk @THFYM some money to make you a script that made it touch screen friendly.

    Touchscreens are not organic, this is a good choice.

    But seriously though it prob would be trivial to make that template touchscreen friendly as long as you don't care about it being ugly.

    Well if @ChrisTurk made the script it would be ugly.

    maybe it gives the error message and disables the submit button if it takes longer for the image to load than it expects. I'm trying these again. sometimes the error message/disabled submit button appears, then later the image appears, but the error message and disabled submit button stay.

    Black friday of pizza is day before thanksgiving and day after thanksgiving

    and labor day and memorial day.

    Superbowl sunday isn't anything special. Neither is Halloween unless it's raining
