    Played too much runescape years ago, but I'm drinking beer, hope I make no bad decisions.

    It's not against the TOS to have pandas and scrapers running on one pc and work on a different one, right? Or if I had two pcs with my mturk account logged in at the same time on the same IP, would that get my account flagged?

    I just checked and my oldest account is 4,048 days old, so I'd be scared to know how much of my life I've spent on Runescape.

    Different locations, I'd get some more advice from people that have experience firsthand with that first. Ask again when more of the 9-to-5ers are awake. :lol:

    You can log into your MTurk account on multiple PCs or different browsers on the same PC, no big deal. The thing is, your page request pool is tied to your account. So if you leave your work PC running a scraper and pandas running after you leave, you won't be able to turk effectively at home. I've heard that you can change your password to force a logout for remote locations, but I've never tried it myself.

    No I have 2 PCs at home. So I mean can I monitor hits on one computer and do the hits on the other computer? Doing that wouldn't get my account flagged or anything? I just wasn't sure if it was allowed to have your mturk account open on two different computers at the same time. I would like to be able to game/watch videos/whatever on one computer while the other one monitors for hits, and then when I get a hit I would work on it on either computer.

    Ah, gotchya. Nope, I've never heard of that being a problem. Plenty of people log in on their phones to do penny HITs while they're away from their computer that's hitting pandas. Desktop as a main workstation and grabbing the laptop when you have to be in another room is also common.
    Once I get my laptop going again (replacing the hard drive) I plan on using it primarily as a remote desktop client, depending on how well it performs on LAN.

    Good morning everyone.
    I hope you all have a lovely day of turking, and make copious amounts of money.
