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.

    Does Turkerview include a script to tell if I already did a hit? If so I'm not seeing it or a special script to do that.

    MTS has this feature. If you have it installed you should have a little ? or check mark next to the hit on the site. If you hover over it, it will give you details.

    I should probably say that it's not perfect, especially with common hit names, but you can look the hit up in MTS's hit tracker if you're especially worried about it for a particular hit.

    I came back to this. I do not have any question marks. I don't see where on the script page it says there's one that shows you what hits you've done.

    If there aren't any checkmarks or question marks that should mean you haven't done anything for them, but I usually reload my queue once just to make sure.

    Another way to go about this is if you review most things you can always search on TV. You can search your reviews on your TV profile page.

    You can search for the hit here in MTS, in the HitTracker page:
