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.

    SAME!! Although my husband just stands there looking at me like I'm the biggest idiot on earth and says "Honey, I will go with you, but you know damm well something is going to go wrong and I'm going to call you up there anyways. Just get in the truck." I mean he's right though.

    I'M EMBARRASSED:emoji_disappointed:

    And here's why.
    I've been Turking for just over a year I believe, I have roughly 8000 HITS, 99.76 approval, however, I feel I am not using the scripts efficiently or correctly and it doesn't matter how many tutorials I read-and believe me I've read dozens-I feel I must be making fundamental mistakes, which if I knew I were doing/making for so long, I;d probably slap myself.
    So, the source of my embarrassment is that I feel too "dumb" to understand the scripts fully. When I do Turk, I'm competent and efficient, but by now I feel I should be making the $40-50 a day goal I set for myself(I said I would do it in a year), some days I can do that-and it usually takes 6 hour of hard grind, but most days I am nowhere near that amount. Have I set an un-realstic goal for myself, what with no special Quals or Masters? Is there anyone who can "Clif Note" scripts or convey the info to me as if I am in kindergarten, coz maybe that's what I need?, or maybe a visual?
    Maybe one of you will have mercy on on me and hear my wails of pain from TurkTorture and frustration.

    Just to give you an idea of how bad I am at using all the various functions on offer, when I receive a bonus-which I invariably forget what HIT I'm receiving said bonus for-it will say, for work pertaining to A7655x$$$88887, or whatever, I have NO idea where or how to put that number somewhere to see what HIT I've just been bonused for.

    So there it is,my confession of Turk Illiteracy.

    PLEASE BE GENTLE.

    I am so lucky to. He gets on my last nerve sometimes but he is my everything and I can't imagine life without him. Plus he puts up with me, so he basically qualifies as a saint. lmfao

    First of all...
    :hug: I was the SAME way. But the folks here, the ones that have been doing this a while, are more than happy to help when someone comes in with a genuine desire to learn. No need to be embarassed. You just have to find your work flow. The people here that are more experienced than I will help explain things.

    To be fair to yourself, most of us don't and even if we do it's a HUGE pain in the ass to figure it out. It is easier to put the potential bonus in the hit review then update.

    Seriously though guys, why do we care so much about proving that we can get a higher rate than what this dude says?
