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.

    Pros:
    Batches.
    Cons:
    Blacklisted. I need to increase my rating to 99.90% but this only requester lowered my rating to below 95% by rejecting all my hits and not willing to help either way. Stay away!

    No, guys, stop, the work is on the Amazon Mechanical Turk platform.

    That means it's good and I should be allowed to work on it and I have every right for the requester to approve all of my hits.

    I mean, to be fair, if I'm doing work for someone I do want to be paid, even if I'm doing it at $3/hr.

    Being new doesn't mean you have to accept being paid $3/hr.

    I didn't know how much it pays hourly. It was a batch and I did it to increase my numbers.

    You said you did enough of them to tank your approval to below 95%, which means you did multiple of them when you should've stopped after just one and realizing "hey, this takes too long." Also, don't do unknown hits as a new turker, you already have TVJS installed, so you should be able to see all those fine numbers hits flying by on your scraper that pay you more than $3/hr.

    Numbers are dumb. They're only cool when you can say "I have a million approved hits and no masters."

    Only 395k to go...

    I agree with this. People make such a big deal about having numbers or padding, but as long as you're actually doing the work right and not working for shady requesters, your approval rating should be fine and you should feel obligated to do work for trash underpaying requesters like MLD just to boost how many hits you have done.

    On the night of the first new moon of the year, at exactly midnight you must sacrifice a turkey to our lord and savior, Jeff Bezos.
