    Are there any step by step instructions on how to use scripts anywhere ? I am no dummy when it comes to computers but no tech genuis either - I'm not sure about these scripts etc ... I desperately want to do well at this and I know I can but it will just take some time. I'm using Chrome and have installed Chrome Reload this morning. I tried it out on some Tagasauris hits. Probabaly not the best choice since every time I hit submit it told me that "something went wrong" so I had to go back and fo them over. Even so, I simply have no idea what I am doing and just wondered if there is any documentation as to exactly how these scripts ( specifically the auto accept ) work. I also installed Page Monitor - think I may be able to handle that one ;)

    I can't find the crowdsource highlighter script it seems to have disappeared.

    Just found it today myself. http://pastebin.com/zGPcjYL4 This works for me in Chrome I don't knoe if FF is the same script. I think I heard someone say it might get rejections because crowdsource says the HIT is blank. I have no first hand knowledge on way or the other. I'm new (still under 500) but starting to get the hang of it.

    Thank you for this tutorial. It helps to see how to modify the colors and settings. Initially I was off-put by the color scheme but now I can change it so my eyes can see it better. Thank you!

    Just wanted to add my thanks! I had been going repeatedly to userscripts.org which was always down. Got a couple of the scripts in your first post, Monica, from pastebin, and they are working great, in FF 31 on a Mac.

    I uninstalled the block requestors/block hits scripts and now I can't even reinstall them. The site appears to be down. Anybody know anything about this?

    I've been searching for this script too.. I added the script for HIT DataBase in Tamper monkey, comes up my fancy new user script.. Seems I already had it, and added it again. Maybe I'm not looking in the right area to see if I did a paticular hit or looked at it.. I got the graph of earnings script, and the scoring of requesters.

    Is there a time frame for the auto-accept trap tutorial? I really enjoyed the one for Hit Scraper.

    Also could use one for the script that notifies you when HITs are in for a certain requester.

    I'm lost. I'm not sure how any of this works. I downloaded Grease Monkey, I downloaded Expanded Header and Today's Projected Earnings, they're enabled, the Grease Monkey menu says Expanded Header is running on the page, but the page is exactly the same. I've refreshed my dashboard, restarted Firefox, but still nothing.

    Okay, I found projected earnings in my dashboard, but the header still isn't working.

    I don't think the old script works anymore since the last Firefox update. I re-made the script about a month ago because I didn't like how it does so many page requests (which makes you get the exceeded maximum rate errors more often). It works fine even on the latest Nightly version of Firefox.

    Here's the link: Mturk Expanded Header (Cached)

    I need a bit of help. I just bought a new computer and have been reloading all of my scripts, but can't find a working site to d/l the Block Requester script. The userscripts site is down, and I can't find it on the mirror site. Does anyone know where I can get this? That and Turkopticon were my most useful ones and I feel lost without it! TIA!

    I use that same Block Requester script myself, but I need to point out the side effects of the latest change by Amazon to the HIT pages.

    When you click on a requester's x to block, you'll see the garbage HTML "<span class=" stuff appear in the requester name. (The script doesn't know about the Amazon changes).

    The script will be consistent in its own operation, but it will 'break' the Turkopticon script unless the TO script appears ahead of the Block Requesters script in your sequence.

    Moral: Let the Turkopticon script go first. It deserves pride of place. ;)

    Ugh... I'm getting really frustrated. All of the scripts were working for me until I upgraded my system to windows 8.1 and now the only thing working is Turkopticon. The scripts show they are enabled and running in tampermonkey but nothing shows up on mturk. Help! I don't know what I'm doing wrong. :(
