    It means that some poor soul, either TJ, Flora, or both, have to pretend to be a robot to make threads so that people don't pitch a fit over the same person creating the thread because now its a "robot". Because, as you know, this is kindergarten.

    I'm hoping the batches that couldn't post Friday finally come today. That or I hope I can convince my heathens that today would be a good day to go flea marketing. I need to go buy some more useless junk.

    Is the requester site back up? The notification on the turk page looks to be gone.

    I think they said yesterday it was back up and running. I waited like 4 hours for all the batches that couldn't go through Friday to come and they never did.

    Requesters tend not to work on holidays. Which is why Amazon chose Memorial Day weekend to do site maintenance. Nothing much was going to be posting anyway.

    Things do seem to slipping in slowly. Haven't looked at batch loads but have gotten 6.25 worth of Surveys so far

    Not exactly...it is, literally, a robot. It's a script that runs a around midnight pacific. I wrote it in python. If a new thread isn't made, it will post this. If a thread exists, it won't do anything.

    I can't share all of the code, but if you want to look at it for proof you can, just let me know.

    Edit: though I appreciate the solidarity lol, the thread stuff was a weird thing to get up in arms about, but it's over with now.

    Looks totally different to me! All my desktop icons are gone too.

    After it was done, looked around and I was totally lost. Things look different, reminds me of Win 8 with those colorful squares with items in it.

    All my files, pictures and scripts are gone. After some searching, I found my files elsewhere. But still no scripts. I was tempted to go go back to 7...

    I freaked out and went to bed figuring I'll sleep on it.

    Now that I'm up, I'll work on it and see what I want to do. For now all I can say is I hate it because I'm lost and I don't know where anything is.

    awww man that sucks, sorry to hear! The only reason I didnt flip out is because a friend told me everything would stay exactly the same. Hope you get your bearings straight before it's time to make some money.

    For me nothing moved or changed except the start menu and the cortana thing. The only things I even use are chorme, ff, wordpad, vlc, ahk, and vegas pro though so I might not be an expert in noticing small differences. Pretty sure it takes up more memory yet runs faster too but could be wrong.

    It was talked about in the past but we didn't think it was necessary because Nanaki was here and doing it for us. It wasn't until there were issues involving making threads that we then decided to resort to it.

    Wow, now I know why people call spam on forums robots. I always assumed there was a person on the other end. Learned something new today. And at least I know there isn't someone who just posts the same link 500 times a day.

    I'm trying not to give up and resort back to Win 7. One thing at a time. First I want to get my old desktop files back on my desktop. There's just major programs on there like Chrome, FF, Steam etc...but no personal files I had up there. Googling this issue. Then I guess I have to reinstall all my scripts, TM, Scraper...

    A nightmare if you ask me lol. But the last day to get Win 10 free is July 29 I think so I think I'm forced to keep it and figure it out.

    EDIT:

    Glad to hear that you got your money! That's a good sign.

    Thanks. I thought so too. Until I got another email from Payments yesterday. This was their response to what's been my standard spiel begging for clarification and reasoning behind the suspension...

    huh??? didnt mention one thing about store cards or synchrony bank. Asking about mTurk is like speaking chinese from outer space with these people.

    I hated 10 at first too, but you get used to it fairly quickly.

    You shouldn't have to reinstall anything. All of your files and programs should still be there, except for some desktop short cuts

    Oh it's July? Not sure why I thought it was June. I really don't want to change, but that'll give me more time to think about it. I'd die if my software all went nuts, though.

    Maybe you're mostly talking to bots?
