Oh shit. The Leafs have lost 3 in a row. Everyone remember to keep all sharp and rope-like objects away from @leafs4_cup just in case.
They might decide to go out in a pile of leaves
A PSA for people using the "broken hit" script to submit Rekogs:
You're scamming, and if they ever look at their data, you'll be rejected.
The reason the HITs don't submit aren't because of an error with the HIT, and there not being any path for the form to submit, which is what the submit() is meant to bypass.
The Rekogs don't submit because of permission error (500) on the S3 server Rekogs are hosted on. When you submit normally, the rekog code wraps the data and sends it to their server, noting your worker ID, HIT id, and the data.
It then redirects to mturk, with just your workerid and hitid and no data, so that you can get credit for the assignment.
Using the 'broken HIT' script is equivalent to not watching the videos at all and just submitting without doing the work. Even if you're OK with that, you probably shouldn't post about it. Maybe.
Edited to add: When in doubt, open the dev console and look at the network traffic.
This song's about heroin. Don't do heroin. PSA or something.
But... but... no! That makes me sad! I watch my videos!
I don't think you can blame the dog for eating your data though
This one is the REVOLUTION. Even if I don't care about it.
They finally fixed the whole payment error that happened on 10/22 not sure if it was mentioned. Just login to your payments and send it to your bank again
No, I only blame myself, but it's similar, no? Lots of folks use the force script and have for some time. People that I generally consider reputable. And yeah, no one ever mentioned that it sends your name and info with no data from the hit or I'd have never touched it. That kind of thing pisses me off. And before someone spouts off that I should learn to code, bite me. Not everyone has the time, inclination, or ability to do it. So we depend on others, reviews, etc., and that generally works. This is the first time something like this has come up for me - and really, I pay attention to most of the comments on scripts that are widely shared, and so very seldom does a "hey, this is a cheat" come up.
Mine isn't fixed yet but you give me hope.
fwiw, the "It's Broke" script is valuable in a lot of instances. This is just not one of them.
IIRC it also submits blank data for joe Lo.
As far as i know that script says to use it at your own risk. I'm sure for some hits it works perfectly fine but it just depends on how the data gets sent to the servers. If you don't want to look into the details / don't know how its probably best not to use a script like that until you know the intricacies of certain hits. I don't think anyone is doubting your ethics. Just need to be more careful next time

The thing is that's not always the case. There are plenty of situations where the script is fine. Its pretty much impossible to know unless you can read the source frame of the HIT (and even then, there may be instances where you can't be sure)
Its just an unfortunate legacy mess lol. Heck whoever wrote it may have had no clue either for all I know, given how many "self taught" scripters created stuff they don't really understand.
Don't worry about it. Stuff happens, if you're ever in doubt post the iframe source link and ask, generally there is someone around who can take a peek and make sure its cool. I didn't have the rekog source handy so I kinda just ignored the convo earlier lol.
I've been calling every day for an update. You probably should get it tomorrow then. I may have only gotten priority cause they took my name down when I first called CS. No idea if you did the same.
Correctomundo hombre. At least for w/e answers didn't get shipped off to the server that prevent it from submitting in the first place.
