    Another new user question from me. In the top right hand corner of my hits page are the letters FLBS. Because it's where it is, I cannot click on anything. Nothing works. I can't go to my page and transfer money. I can't copy my turk number. What do I do?

    FYI, I just figured out how to transfer money with that thing still up there but I still don't know what it is.

    So I haven't turked in forever and a day but wanted to get back into it....until I saw the interface on mturk.com is totally different. Is there a script or a way I can change it back to how I had it 2-3 years ago?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Nope. Most of us don't like it and there's nothing we can do about it but adapt to it. :(

    Thanks for the quick reply :) I hate change though :(. Do you know if old scripts work still work for the new look, or did everyone have to change everything when the new look was implemented?

    I hate it too. It was all we talked about for weeks, filled with complaints of what we didn't like. Now everyone has gotten used to it.

    All the scripts had to be updated to work on the new site. There is a thread on it with list of updated scripts. You may find your old ones on there updated or completely new ones like Panda Crazy that pretty much replaces Turkmaster. (Turkmaster has been updated for the new site but I'm not sure how well it works) Hit DB doesn't look like it's going to be updated so people have turned to Mturk Suite for that.

    http://mturkforum.com/index.php?threads/updated-scripts-for-the-new-site.14524/

    List of scripts is at the 3rd post on that thread.

    I like it but I'm using a bunch of scripts too lol. If you have suggestions mturk does take them and passes them on to the appropriate department.

    Forget the old site. The new site is worker.mturk.com. We all got accustomed to it after a few weeks.

    I haven't updated that list since there's more that has been added onto it but there's a link that I included of all the updated scripts.

    I will double check to see if there are any others I want to use.

    Can someone tell me what this means? How does it affect me going forward? This is the first time I've had something like this.

    That's just the requester cleaning up their quals. Doesn't mean anything to us. They assign us qualifications to do HITs then when their study is done, they remove them or add them to prevent re-takes.

    I downloaded and have TO in my bookmarks, but I don't see it popping up on my MTurk page near requesters?

    Hi! Welcome to the forum! Glad you joined us.

    Before you install any scripts, you need to install Tampermonkey (Chrome) or Greasemonkey (Firefox).

    See if that TO works after you install Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey. I'm not sure if that link works.

    If not, Turkopticon has it's own site where you can install it. https://turkopticon.ucsd.edu/

    Feel free to join us in the daily thread where most of us hang out. We can answer any questions you have there.

    Hi Flora,
    I also installed Tampermonkey when I installed TO. Not sure why I'm not getting any feedback on requesters when I look through HITS though?

    How long does it take once some say "approved" to go "paid"?
