    I want to thank you, Flora. Doing the balancing act between the 2 sites and the new hits is a lot of work.

    I saw a complaint, either here or at MTCrowd, that the filters disappear each time you view the list. Here's what I did. I sorted it for 100 per page, arranged by creation date, newest first. Then I made that into a bookmark. I had done that on the old site too.

    I made another bookmark sorting highest reward first. You can vary it to your needs. I also have bookmarks for Sign In and a few others. They're all in a bookmark folder in a handy place.

    I complained about that, as it effects TurkMaster and that's what I usually use, between that and manually searching. Now manually searching is a hell of a lot harder and Turkmaster doesn't work probably because you can't default it Newest First...

    Bookmarking is a good idea, but there is always gonna be a HIT you miss when it doesn't come right to you

    Here is what I've noticed so far tonight.

    I have always opened a new hit into a new window so I would always have the option of contacting the requester if my hit ran out of time and so I wouldn't have my place lost in the main list.

    If you open a hit by clicking the requester's name into a new window it brings up the hit but oh look, TO1 and TO2 scripts both show.
    If you open the Your Hits Queue into a new window then your filters won't get erased.

    I am using Firefox Quantum.

    I would like to be able to expand each hit and not the whole page of hits like before.
    I would like to be able to see the whole title so maybe they could make it to where you hover over the title or requester name it shows (like it does when you hover in Hit Scraper on the Hit title.)

    I have not found a way to see whether you've done a hit or not. Once you open a Hit it will automatically change all the Hits for that requestor to purple making it look like you've viewed them all. I used that option heavily before because my script broke long time ago and only half worked and I couldn't figure out how to fix it. Having that hit change color if you've viewed it would be helpful to have back.

    I know scripts are being updated and whatnot so just wanted to mention what I have found so far.

    If you need to get some information from the old dashboard, try https://www.mturk.com/mturk/dashboard?doNotRedirect=true
    I don't know how long that will work for. I recommend recording all the the previous year earnings. The part where you click "Show earnings details". It can be useful in calculating your Approved Pending Payment value without checking all the daily status detail pages. Total Earnings - (Previous Years + Current Year + Error) = Approved Pending Payment.

    Previous Years is like 2016, 2015, 2014, etc. all added up.
    Current Year is only available on the new Dashboard.
    Some of us may have an Error in our Total Earnings that persists throughout the year, so, it's something you have to figure out yourself.

    I updated my bookmarklet scripts page to open both TO pages
    when you're on a requesters page on the new worker site
    http://mturkforum.com/showthread.php?35137-new-TO-bookmarklet


    old and new TO sites say their scripts work on the new worker site.
    neither worked for me using old firefox, didn't try anything else

    I've heard others say the links work there
    I have no scripts working except panda crazy for some reason
    tried all the new scripts and updated all the old ones that would

    https://turkopticon.info/
    https://github.com/turkopticon/turkoptiscript/raw/master/dist/turkoptiscript.es5.user.js

    https://turkopticon.ucsd.edu/
    https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/27512-turkoptiscript


    update to firefox 55 or 56 worked
    also to avoid greasemonkey problems with 4.x update
    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/violentmonkey/

    I updated my bookmark folder to get dashboards from both sites.

    MTSuite is fully updated. When I click a hit and need to set a panda, the link opens to "All hits," although the familiar orange boxes are on the right of EVERYTHING. Previously they became part of the page title. How do I panda the hit I've chosen?

    In order to panda HITs, you'd have to use HIT Catcher, Panda Crazy or Turkmaster. I don't know of a way to manually panda HITs anymore on the new site.

    If you see a HIT you want to panda from the MTS HF, click on 'accept', copy the URL, put it into the HIT Catcher by clicking 'Add Watcher'.

    Not using TM any more, using MTS. Not bookmarking the hits, but the filters. Or did I misunderstood you?

    I just found the same thing at Crowd at the same time as you, and I thought I had posted it here.[​IMG] Guess not.

    With pandas in the bag, I can start making money. I made only $1.25 all weekend.

    Got it. Thanks, works on FF. I'm not generally an optimist, but I think there will be scripts to make up for at least some of the site's deficiencies. Programmers like the challenge. FF 57 will use some of the same extensions as Chrome, but I'm on 52ESR.

    I have the most important ones now: MTS, Projected Earnings, Title Fixer, couple small ones. It's enough for me to function.

    The "All Approved Rate" is what your approval rate will be if all pending hits are approved. The "All Rejected Rate" is what your APPROVAL rate will be if all your pending hits are rejected. Basically best/worst case.

    Click the "More" to see your actual current rejection rate.

    Not liking how the number of rejections is hidden like that. It is the one number I focus on most. If it changes I need to figure out what happened.

    The new hit finder doesn't have the option to filter out hits with a low TO rating, at least not that I can find. It was on of the best time saving features on Mturk suites. I can't imagine why they would get rid of it. Someone please tell me I'm just missing it. I'm okay with looking foolish, just ask my wife ;)

    I just got on 11 PM-- Weird HF

    [​IMG]
    Weird new look of HF, not there last night. Each one shouldn;t take up that much space.


    And the block lists shouldn't be showing, and it doesn't turn off

    On the bright side you have color! He is working on it. I'd try again tomorrow and see if it doesn't correct it's self. Oh, and he's discontinued the legacy finder...you need to use the top one (which didn't have color earlier, so I don't like it, but I'm hoping he will get it pretty again.)
