    Is there anyway to update the Pending HIT's dollar amount? It's been showing up as $47 for the past few days, and I'm sure I have more than that in pending HIT's.

    Edit: That was surprisingly simple. Thanks Sanurah!

    Yeah, click it to update, and if it still doesn't work, maybe start using HIT database instead.

    Can anyone tell me how to get check4change to work for a specific requester? I have it installed and my database keep updating, but that's as far as I was ever able to get. TIA

    Search for a requester. Highlight the text "Your search did not match any HITs." and right click on your mouse. Scroll down to Check4Change, and choose your desired refresh rate.

    Here's the tutorial:

    I see a lot of audio transcribing things that have a certain name and a number. Does this mean those are reserved for certain members?

    If you see a HIT posted with a certain Worker ID, yes it's reserved for that particular worker.

    I don't know about the audio ones but often times when there's a problem with surveys/study, the requesters sometimes will put up a HIT to make up for it.

    What kind of search terms do yall use to find good HITs?
    I want to be able to contribute to the Great HITs thread, but I never know how to find really good stuff.

    Thanks so much. I had tried everything I could find, and none of it made sense. I really appreciate the help.

    Is there a trick or a script to change the "next" or ">>" buttons into a keystroke? I feel like I lose so much time mousing down to the next button on every screen.

    I don't really use search terms, I just filter by Most Hits Available, or Newest Hits Created. Or, sort the HITs by the amount paid. There's a lot of ways to go about it.

    You can always hit Tab until it highlights the "next" or ">>" and then click Enter.

    Yes, they will show up in your email inbox. Make sure you check your spam folder, as well.

    It depends on what I feel like doing that day. If it's a survey kind of day then I'll probably type in survey and arrange the results by newest first. If I feel like writing or something I'll type in article, rewrite or anything that has to do with writing and arrange by highest paying.

    Does anyone know where in my settings to go to make my ID not be publicly linked to my reviews? It was talked about sometime last week, but I couldn't do it then.

    I'm not sure what you mean. What reviews are you talking about?

    Not really. Your mturk worker ID and your Amazon account ID are the same. The best you can really do is to remove any information from your Amazon profile that you don't want publicly accessible. You can read more in this reddit thread, along with the original article:

    OK, I may just be dumb, but how do I post a review on TO, without clicking the link from a script? I can't, for the life of me, figure out where on their page to click to make a review of a requester.

    I haven't figured that one out either. I guess you HAVE to use the link from the script to post reviews.

    Thanks. I double checked, and nothing that I can find from googling my ID has personal information, so I'm not too worried about it.

    Click the bubble for Non Adult if there is no adult content in the pic.

    Can someone tell me how to access what HITs and/or contributors make up my Bonuses amount? Would it be through the Database script, or through Amazon's data? Please help! And, thank you!

    Another question (I feel SO dumb asking) how do I export my database to CSV and/or back it up?
