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.

    Yah.. seems like timers 60min or higher are unaffected. IIRC the spring back will make anything under 60 mins impossible to complete for a little while. [​IMG]

    Just a friendly reminder to all... I've seen 2 people this week who said that they lost their settings either due to cleaning cookies, or thought they had to start from scratch because of a new computer.

    Take a moment right now, on Sunday while it's slow, to back up your stuff.

    Tampermonkey:
    Code:
    Open Tampermonkey's dashboard in its own tab. (Click the app icon & right-click on Dashboard)
    Click on the Utilities tab on the right.
    Choose the type of export you would like and click the export button associated with the backup you want.
    Overwatch:
    Code:
    Click on the export button, it will give you a data dump in your log. Copy/paste to a text file.
    Don't forget to save your Blocklist too, if you use it.  The export won't save it.
    If you do, click on Edit Blocklist & copy & save it to another text file.
    
    Panda Crazy:
    Code:
    Select Jobs tab
    Select Export tab
    Select Export To File
    Copy to wherever you are saving.
    
    HIT Database Mk. II:
    Code:
    Click Create Backup. It'll save a hitdb_{today's date}.bak file in your default downloads folder.
    Hit Finder:
    Code:
    Click on the Block List/Include List button and then Export.
    HitScraper:
    Code:
    Click on Settings then Utilities and then Export.
    Hit Monitor:
    Code:
    Click Export. That will save the txt to your clipboard.
    Paste it to text editor of choice and save it with a name you'll remember.
    TurkMaster:
    Code:
    Click the gear and then the three vertical dots next to Export.
    Copy the entire text that is shown there and save it as a .txt file.
    And the best practices after doing the above... Don't just keep all this saved stuff local. Sync it to cloud storage, or attach them to an E-mail to yourself.

    @Melting Glacier if anything bad happens today I blame the fact that I ended on 666 hits submitted yesterday.

    I've got a Q. I'm not very computer literate in terms of hardware. I have a 1TB HD laptop with Intell Core i3. It came with 4GB DDR4 and I slipped another 4GB stick in there when I first got it. Aside from my son's Minecraft download, I use the computer almost exclusively for turking. I don't game or stream on this device. I've put the flag on Chrome start up so it won't throttle my OW & Panda Cray. The Q is this: if I pop out those two 4 GB sticks and pop in a couple of 16 GB DDR4s will it help my turking abilities or is it all really about the hamster?

    It depends on what you are doing but you most likely won't be able to upgrade the ram on the laptop anymore anyways.

    HA! By doing all my backups... and then organizing them for safekeeping, I found an old OW backup that I did (and forgot all about) which I merged into my existing OW stuff.

    I also added an Edit to the original "backup your scripts" post... Since Live Update doesn't forgive... make sure you're saving everything to cloud storage.

    How so? There are compatable 16 GB memory stick thingies available for it. But I don't know if it's worth it. They're like 350 bucks for the pair.
