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.

    Turkerview will compare your submitted review times with other turkers submitted review times, and TV had noticed that you're much faster than others.

    This usually happens when times are submitted from a newly opened HIT window or refreshing the HIT window before submitting - thus not showing an accurate time it took. (TV determines your time by how long the actual HIT window is open, so if it was closed or reopened or whatever - TV review won't have an accurate timer)

    As I mentioned in the PM - you can always submit a review with a 0 for the timer if you're not confident on the time it took.

    There's also a pause timer button on the HIT window - in case you have to run to the bathroom or make lunch or whatever.
