    I am not really new to MTurk, but I have been off for almost 2 years. Things have certainly changed! Is there a place where I can go on this forum to better understand how MTS, Hit Finder, Hit Catcher, and Panda Crazy all work together? Thank you!

    Usually people stick to either MTS/Hit finder/Hit Catcher *or* Panda Crazy and a scraper like Hit Forker. As far as I'm aware, they don't tend to use both together.

    Welcome!
    This might be more basic than what you're looking for but I wrote a beginners guide to scripts here:
    Super beginners guide to scripts
    You should read through some of my follow up posts responding to questions in that thread since I go over some of how the scripts interact with each other.

    MTurkSuite Hit Finder is a scraper that helps search through what's available on mturk.
    MTurkSuite Hit Catcher is a "panda" script that helps to catch hits you think might be good

    Hit Forker is another scraper
    Panda Crazy is another "panda" script

    You'll generally want to use either MTS Hit Finder + MTS Hit Catcher OR use Hit Forker + Panda Crazy
