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.

    actually I guess this is technically wrong, I think I made the account when I was like 18-20 and Amazon Payments couldn't verify my identity at the time so I just gave up

    Are you one of those folks that usually means to be funny/sarcastic but comes off like a huge dick, or something? If so, then I'll regard the response as humorous, because I too am one of those folks.

    I'm thrilled that they will be over seeing our bank transfers, take a semi-competent team that you can actually converse with and replace it with, well, that.

    It was never based on account age. There's honestly no real way of telling how it's chosen who gets the email and who doesn't. Everyone from actual top earners to Reddit "my goal is $100/week" posters has gotten it. Except me. I didn't get it because I'm basically perfect and Amazon knows my earnings are legit.
