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.

    I know right? You used to take some pleasure in angrily hanging up on telemarketers knowing that they heard a slight *click* before the line went dead...when you hung up on them they knew it!

    I'm assuming that the multi-quote utility posted them in chronological order. I should've done "reply" one-by-one to keep them in ranking order. But yep, you're on there.
    It was just a prank.

    Hey all--and I'll repost this tomorrow--but I bet a bunch of y'all did our finance/general knowledge quiz/qual earlier today. Which, thanks, first of all!

    Anyway, we mentioned in the HIT and maybe the survey that it was for a two-part HIT on Thursday. Just heard from a partner on that project, and we need to move that two-part hit back to Friday late afternoon on the east coast.

    Sorry about that!

    Someone at a higher pay grade than I will be issuing the quals in the next 24 hours however.

    Hello,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced with our HITs this evening. The problem is entirely on our end and is related to the switch to the new MTurk interface. Luckily this occurred on a small test batch, but we understand that several workers were still impacted.

    We expect to have a new batch up tomorrow. In the meantime, we greatly appreciate your patience.

    Thank you,
    NoblisCV
    Thought I share (sorry if someone already did). So glad it is being fixed with a new batch tomorrow!

    The post office, fed ex and UPS have all botched deliveries today dealing with them and the phone company I ended up returning a $13 hit because I relized I didn't have time to finish it.
