    I think the major difference is the inclusion of the Search window, which is a big deal for me at least. You can have it watch all your favorite requesters and do arbitrary searches automatically, and you can set it to automatically add pandas to the main window based on those.

    The only other thing I know about it is that the "old" script from Greasy Fork isn't actively maintained anymore, so any sort of breakage due to browser updates will probably be the permanent end of it.

    We're actually in a bit of a sketchy spot as far as Mturk software is concerned I think. None of the three main developers (Kaduchi for MTS, Chris for QBC and JohnnyRS for PCM) are very active anywhere anymore, and a lot of people depend on one or more of those programs to keep working.

    A request is just that...a request. And an invite is an invite. There is no guarantee for either. QBC was private for many years. When it went public it was always with the understanding that it was invite only. A request does not guarantee an invite. Constantly tagging him and creating new threads is unlikely to yield the results you're after. QBC is Chris' program and he has the right to be selective with who uses it.

    No. This is @ChrisTurk 's tool and no one else can authorize you to use it, unless something has drastically changed that I'm not aware of in the past couple months. But, I can't imagine Chris would hand over that power to anyone, tbh, nor should he feel as though he has to regardless of how busy he is or how little time he has to be tied to the forum at the moment.

    Many people have learned to turk without QBC. Many people still do. I would suggest focusing on learning to use a tool that is available to you and perhaps you'll have an opportunity to use QBC in the future when CT isn't so busy or when he's adding new people.

    ^^ this

    No one is going to tell you anything different.

    My guess is if he hasn't responded to your messages about it that he isn't taking on new users currently. As others have suggested I would just look into using other things like MTS or Panda Crazy. I believe there are some other paid services out there too but I am only familair with QBC so don't feel comfortable recommending any of them.

    All good information :). Thanks. I use Panda Crazy Max very very little, I bet there are so many perks to it. I only use it to transfer HITs from the forum and copy the HIT to the MSuite Catcher. I never had chance to learn it good tbh. I will look into, thanks so much everyone who tried to help. If you know good training on Panda Crazy Max and could put the link on the forum, that would be highly appreciated.

    PCM user here. Here's a YouTube video which covers a lot of ground:



    and there's also a guide floating around on the repo, if I remember correctly.

    Once you have PCM installed and setup each forum post HIT has a quick link/button for you to automatically add it to your main PCM window so it tries to capture the HIT until you get it, it'll queue them up. It'll change colors if you're not qualified for it so you can remove it.

    Pros:
    I was fairly slow at this task. It was confusing for me and had to keep reading the information over and over trying to come up with a cohesive answer to the written responses.It has been a long time since I was in high school, even college!
    Cons:
    I struggled with the material. so others may have found it easy. There was quite a bit of writing as well. . The subject was great but presented in a clinical way that bored me.

    Wow, how did you get this done so fast?

    I returned after 10 minutes when it said I was only 34% finished.
