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.

    We are going to publish the next Thusly HITs today.

    We selected 25% of the workers who completed “Softcite Trainer Part 2” at random for the next batch.

    Everyone who has qualification “Softcite Group 1" is qualified. If your score is 100, you are in the first random cohort, if it is 99, we will be doing another 25% cohort next week until we get to everyone.

    There are enough HITs for each worker, and we are keeping them open for one week, so there is no rush, we want people to work at a pace that is good for quality.

    Hi guys,

    Just had a worker report that they used Pandas to queue up 5 Softcite HITs, and then realized the HITs are harder than they thought and so some expired on them after an hour.

    So we recommend that you don't use Pandas, as our HITs require some concentrated reading.
