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.

    Greetings and Salutations,
    I just thought I'd stop and introduce myself, as this seems to be a thriving community, and I have already seen much, much help from it. So here goes!

    I'm Giles, things have been a little rough as of late, and I am basically confined to my home. I can go outside and do chores, of course, but after my little brother passed away, I have been diagnosed with severe agoraphobia. It sounds a little ridiculous, at least it does to me, but unfortunately, I have been struggling to overcome what I once thought was a rather bizarre affliction. In any case, I was struggling to pay the bills, and voila, I stumbled across Mturks, and I actually rather enjoy doing it. Some of the HITs are a little challenging, some of them are easy, but its nice to be able to make a difference in my current financial situation while dealing with my current issues if you will.
    Anyways! That's my story, and Im workin' on improvin' it! So! Nice to meetcha.
    Adios

    Hello and welcome. :wave:

    Sorry to hear about the problems, but I'm glad mturk is working out for you.

    It sounds like you've already looked around a little so you've probably already found the daily thread. Feel free to join in the banter and ask questions if you need any help.

    Hello and welcome. Many of us on here are stuck working at home due to various health conditions, myself included. It sucks but you learn to take pleasure in the little things. Some come on here to talk about Turking, fitness, video games, or whatever. Personally what I find rewarding is making fun of @leafs4_cup for being Canadian.

    If you want to make a living doing this make sure to read about workflows, study scripts, and get qualifications. Glad to have you here with us!!!!

    I appreciate the warm welcome, thank you kindly!
    Hahaha, ah, Canadians. :emoji_joy:

    Also, thank you for the advice! I will definitely take that to heart, it seems that there is quite a bit of potential for earning here, and I am sort of in a serious need for that in my life right now!

    all of this except I like to point out to @SirKiwiTheBrave and others that their love of marmite is wrong:emoji_joy:
    and don't be afraid to ask questions as long as there isn't a hot batch running someone will answer even if i's not mturk related. I'm not as confined to my house as I used to be but when I was I often vented to a few people on here when I thought I was going to go out of my mind
