This is a very basic intro to using the types of scripts that will help you on mturk. If you have no idea what a script is, this should be a good start. For more advanced questions or information about writing scripts there are much more knowledgeable people to ask. What the hell are scripts? Scripts are like mini computer programs that you add to your browser to streamline working on mturk. There are many scripts that have been written by other turkers that do many different things, but I'm just going to cover a few of the most used and most useful ones. How do I install scripts? To install scripts you'll need to install a script management extension. Tampermonkey is the most popular. https://tampermonkey.net/ You add scripts to tampermonkey and can turn them on/off and edit them as needed from there. There are a few basic categories of scripts that will be useful on mturk. Hit Catching Scripts These scripts auto refresh a link to a hit so that you can try to catch hits that you may have missed initially or catch multiple hits in a batch before that batch disappears. If you hang around the forums, you'll often see these refreshing links referred to as "pandas". This is an outdated nickname which refers to the fact that the url for these links used to say "previewandaccept" (P and A), but mturk has changed quite a bit since then and you won't see that in the urls anymore. A word of advice for using these: Try to keep the number of pandas running at one time to a minimum. 10 at most, ideally 3-5. The more hits you try to catch at once, the less efficient these scripts are. Panda Crazy is by far the most popular stand alone hit catching script https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/19168-jr-mturk-panda-crazy If you use Panda Crazy you'll also want this helper script which creates buttons on mturk and on the forums to easily add new jobs to Panda Crazy. https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/20380-jr-mturk-panda-crazy-helper The script's author created a help page here that explains more about Panda Crazy http://pandacrazy.allbyjohn.com/ Scraper Scripts These search mturk on a timer and display the results to make it easier for you to find hits you want to do. The best standalone scraper right now is Hit Forker https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/36368-hit-forker You can set a timer and search filters and it will display what it finds as well as refresh on the timer. You can add requesters that you like working for to the built in Include List and it will alert you when it finds a hit by that requester. If you want to use the TurkerView API (https://turkerview.com/account/api/) to see review scores for requesters, this is one of the scripts that will use that. It will color code the hits it displays based on the pay rating from TurkerView reviews. Assorted Other Scripts Other types of scripts are usually for something specific. People have created scripts to speed up working on certain types of hits by creating hotkeys or simplifying the page layout of a hit that's designed poorly. There are too many of these to really summarize them here, since they are often specific to a particular hit or do a very specific job. One script you may want to consider if you want to see how what other workers have thought of the hits you're doing or leave reviews yourself is the TurkerViewJS script, which you can install here: https://turkerview.com/mturk-scripts/1-TurkerViewJS This seems really complicated? If you're looking for a one stop shop, one convenient way to get started is the chrome extension MTurk Suite: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mturk-suite/iglbakfobmoijpbigmlfklckogbefnlf?hl=en-US MTS combines several useful scripts together. It has its own scraper, Hit Finder, and its own hit catching script, Hit Catcher, built in along with a number of quality of life features. It's pretty beginner friendly. If you still have questions, don't be afraid to ask around. The Daily Thread here is the busiest place in the forum and probably the best place to catch people's attention. Keep in mind that the more specific you can be with your question and the more accurately you can describe your issue, the better we'll be able to understand where you're at and what the answer is. Edit: I've removed the section describing how to make changes to the PC Helper script because the script has now been updated by the author. If you have the latest version of the script installed, you should be good to go.
