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.

    "Over the course of several weeks in September, I completed 221 HITs in a little over eight hours of dedicated turking, and earned a grand total of $7.83. That works out to 97 cents an hour."

    Guess a certain writer should have taken the time to install Turkviewer and read up on the unofficial benchmarks... This is the equivalent of a person making instant ramen and then writing a review on what it's like to be a chef.

    Anyone that starts turking without reading the forum post you find by searching "first 1000 hits mturk" deserves the pay they get

    I forgot that part in history where the slaves signed up willingly and could talk things out with their masters/ refuse to do the work. If this is what slavery was like people are really overselling the human suffering aspect.

    Plus side being that right now they seem to not be taking new workers. My buddy applied a few weeks ago and Mturk basically told him 'nah, we're full. Come back later'. So we wont have to worry about the flood of curious people trying to make accounts.

    Of course that could be based on his demographics cause he's a very average American.

    If I wrote an article on my first eight hours of Turking it would be a cross between a comic and a horror story. No more QOCR. Nooo.
