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.

[Script] MTS showing a lot more pending than there actually is

    Howdy all. So, my MTS tracker says I have $66.08 pending from 215 HITs. But I actually have less than $50 pending from 29 HITs. I've synced, I've refreshed. No dice. How do I fix this?

    Can you see how old the HITs that are erroneously marked as pending are?

    No but since posting I uninstalled and reinstalled MTS which fixed it. I think it was long enough between syncs that it 'missed' a bunch of them being approved.

    You can also fix this by exporting then importing the HIT Tracker database. This will mark anything pending as paid if its outside of 30 days.

    Yay, thank you for posting this question, cause I had $4.89 annoying me on my laptop forever! I just came to see if this was where I should post my same question.

    Yay, thank you for answering!

    Is this the fix I should use, if my 'pending' hits are from two years ago? I haven't really turked in a couple of years, and when I switched to MTS from the old Hit Database Mk.II, those 'pending' hits were stuck, and I never bothered to fix them at that time.

    If the hits are stuck in MTS then this should work for you.

    Yes, use this to fix those pending HITs from two years ago.
