    Howdy, it's probably best to start learning how to use scripts.

    Are you using scripts like panda crazy and hit forker yet? Scripts make it a lot easier to do well on mturk.

    Welcome to the Hub!

    If you haven't already I'd reccommend downloading the chrome extension Mturk Suite https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mturk-suite/iglbakfobmoijpbigmlfklckogbefnlf?hl=en-US

    Using it updates the Hits Page automatically and allows you to add them to the catcher function so that when they appear again it will automatically accept it for you. This only works well with a few hits at a time though. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have; or you can post it in the daily thread here. https://turkerhub.com/threads/07-28-stretching-saturday.1585/page-6#post-777619

    A new one is posted every day and that's where all the conversation, and all the great hits get posted.

    No problem!

    It may not seem super intuitive at first, but I find that it's easiest to look at the "logged Hits" section of hit finder, its the one under "new hits" because as the page refreshes every few seconds, many of the hits disappear if they are taken.

    The logged Hits section keeps them visible, so you can add them to the catcher, to do that, right click the title in hit finder, and in the dropdown box the section mturk suite will have "hitcatcher once" & you just click that. You also have to have hit catcher open in a separate window.
