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.

    Abandonment is letting it expire, not returning it. My abandon rate is just fine.

    "Recognizing that corporate interests often drive the design of these platforms, we encourage these crowdwork corporations – namely Amazon – to pursue and prioritize partnerships with research collectives of both academics and crowdworkers with the goal of exploring pathways for guiding the future of work. For example, to combat the fragmentation between work and nonwork, MTurk could provide workers with the ability to limit their work hours to an 8-hour window during the day."

    Still working on that. — I've completed my auto-sniping script (which basically does what probably a lot of other "custom secret-sauce private scripts" do). It's under-performing my overly optimistic expectations, but it's basically working. Often it'll catch or queue a HIT faster than I could humanly click. So it's helping me get a few more HITs that I might've missed otherwise. That's helping me to make a few more pennies than before.

    So I can write a script, gosh I'm special, that's one thing; but yes, as a worker I have yet to really learn "how to turk."

    Auto-accepting hits is straight up useless if you don't know what to scrape for or how to find good work.

    Why aren't you a code monkey somewhere? You should be a code monkey somewhere.

    I'm slow, and my poor little mind has a limited capacity for complexity.

    Most of my "overthinking" is just my lame brain's way of overcompensating.
