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.

    What's up everyone, this is my first day doing any of this stuff. Applied for MTurk a couple days ago, got accepted, starting messing around today. Got some scripts up and running, did some HITs, came away with around 12 dollars and wide-eyed optimism.

    Y'all seem pretty cool, so I'm excited to be here...I still have no clue what I'm doing, but I hope to bring a certain comedic charm. I'm hailing from Northern Michigan, and it's stupid cold right now.

    $12 is pretty good for a brand new person in the probation period! Off to a good start!

    Howdy! Welcome!!!! Love Hannibal Buress (saw him recently in Maine!)

    How far north in Northern Michigan are we talking?

    I'm from Royal Oak (originally), went to MSU (plz, plz don't be a Wolverine :) ), husband is from the U.P. (his family is still digging out today) - and many relatives from Escanaba to Manistique. Parents from Wisconsin so obviously some sports (Packers!) rivalry but tons of fam currently scattered on snowmobiles across the top of Wisconsin to Min :) Still have parents, nieces, nephews, etc - in the Metro area.
