    Scraper on FF wipes out the "block" and "Include" lists every time you close it. I've stopped redoing them. The reply to "It does things" is mine. I'm Parfork over there. What I need is the reverse: send the lists from MTS to Scraper.

    did you say you use some privacy extension or program?
    if you have something that deletes cookies on exit,
    it's probably clearing the data that hit scraper is saving also
    maybe you can put in an exception, they would be stored in your firefox profile somewhere

    No I have various privacy features on my regular profile. I have 2 completely different profiles, not even the same bookmarks. The one I use for MT doesn't clear data or cookies, and has some other rules. Anyway, offsite data doesn't apply to scripts. It's cookies + the data in the file webappstore.sqlite.

    Thank you! I installed the Firefox addon. The only change I see is "Earnings $" up at the top next to my ID $ that can be copied. Some of the functions listed I am already using some individual scripts for. Many on the list I have no idea what that is supposed to do. Is there a problem having two scripts do the same thing?

    All I wanted was to have a history of my hits like Hit database. lol. I guess it's no biggy I haven't had any history since the change and a long time before that when my Hit Database went haywire and I couldn't update it anymore. Most requestors have an ID checker in place or qualifications anyway.

    I found where to access MTS. Is there somewhere that explains the option choices more in detail than the hover over description as well as the icons and what the colors mean on the main Hits page? I can't figure out how to disable most of that. It's too busy and it seems like it's duplicated information.

    His Wiki, which you can reach from the MTS Options tab. He's better than some other authors at explaining his scripts. Like the guy who wrote "Does stuff."

    Which colors? The ones with the person icon or the colored rows? (life is so complicated.)

    On FF MTS, Catcher doesn't work at all, so I use MTS only on Chrome.

    Oh, thanks for that. It was the three colors red yellow green that rates the requestors pay. It was the person icons.
    I disabled most everything but still have a minus sign next to the Requestor name and Title that I would like to get rid of. That export arrow was annoying so glad there is the option to disable it.

    I don't catch hits so no big deal on that.

    1.--The red-green-yellow-orange represent TO average. Black means no TO. I use them rather than the colored bars because I have "visited" links in another color, and I need the contrast against the gray backgrounds. If you don't have that, you can use colored bars instead of colored people icons.

    2. - is whether you did the hit or not, but it's not very accurate
    check means yes,
    minus=no,
    ? means done but not yet paid.

    3.
    You can't remove some things in Settings. You'll just learn to ignore some stuff.

    I hate Chrome. This is the only place on the entire web that I use it. If MTS were ever finished for FF, I would chuck Chrome altogether.

    There's still no Hit DB, but Chrome MTS has Hit Tracker for 45 days..

    Thanks for the breakdown. Yes, I realized after I posted that the minus sign was part of the history. I came across my first green check mark and could not figure out what it was. When I saw paid then I realized how that part of the script worked. I see that the ? also includes Return of hits.

    I think for now I've gotten used to the way the screen looks. I guess once you use one the of the icons i.e., green check mark, then the symbols are easier to get used to seeing.

    Ya, I only use Chrome when Firefox is slow. Even though it still freezes up with multiple tabs open it has gotten faster for me once Quantum was released.

    I'm strictly a Firefox user, but K never finished the script. I think he's unwell, said he can't sit at the computer for long. I use FF 52.6ESR. I probably won't go back to the regular track because I'll lose most of my extensions.

    Anyone having issues with turkopticon, i had to reformat my computer the other day and after reinstalling everything now TO's are popping up everyone says this user has not been reviewed yet. 2 days ago it was fine, no idea what the heck i did because everything is different and like i said no reviews for any requester.

    I think you have to login once to see reviews?
    new TO asks me to login every time I restart the browser

    There website is being crappy right now and wont let me recover my password so i cant log in. Also I'm just wondering what if i screwed something up because the format is now different than it was a couple of days when you mouse over to see the requesters reviews. Seems unlikely that would have changed in the time it took me to reformat the computer.

    I don't know if you've resolved this. If not, just make up a new name and PW for TO.

    IN MTS Chrome

    Can you block single words in a title, like Smartphone or Android, rather than entire titles? It doesn't work.
    Is the script using a lot of bandwidth if you have a lot of blocks? If so, would removing old ones help?

    You could. On the top where it says Block list. Click on that and then on the bottom, click "add" and you can type in words you want it to block. Click save and you should be good to go.
