    I've come across a few requesters that send out the same HIT, under the same name, but the HIT ID is different. If you try to PANDA the task, it will often come out under a completely new ID. Sometimes the requester will even list the HIT under their same requester name, but different requester ID.

    For example:
    Requester: Bob Ross, HIT: Paint with me, PANDA Code: abc123
    Requester: Bob Ross, HIT: Paint with me, PANDA Code: zxc098
    Requester: Bob Ross, HIT: Paint with me, PANDA Code: poi456

    So, does anyone know of a way to PANDA all HITs of the same name automatically?
    Not just search them, but actually PANDA/accept them as soon as they are seen.


    edit: Wrote an AutoIt macro bc I didn't want to learn Javascript. Works like a charm.

    Not with any existing script that I know of and if it did exist it would be very inefficient and would likely get some false positives.

    Interesting nothing exists for this. Hit Forker and Mturk Suite can ALMOST do this. As in, they can search for a hit by name. The only piece they can't do is automatically add it to PANDA.

    I'm going to look into writing a little baby greasemonkey script myself then. Wish me luck!

    Nobody uses it. You should look into Tampermonkey instead.

    They're the same thing right? But one is Chrome and the other is Firefox?

    Firefox also has Tampermonkey, every major browser has Tampermonkey. Greasemonkey is a weird extension that is inferior to Tampermonkey in almost every way, and also doesn't support many popular scripts for MTurk.
