    Where do I tell Hit Catcher which noise to make when it finds something? It keeps sounding even where there are no hits caught.

    Yes, this is one of the most annoying things. I wish I could have a little alert popup asking if you want to update now, update on next browser reload or delay. But I unfortunately cannot.

    What you can do is download MTS from GitHub and install it as an unpacked extension in developer mode and it would only update when you downloaded and applied the update yourself.

    That is a new one. HC doesn't have the option like HF does to choose voice or sounds yet.

    I have a voice saying the requ name and and money amount, when there really is a hit caught, but not all of them. And sometimes a springy sound when there isn't. I see the choice in HF, but I don't have an "include" list.

    Yeah, its coming over. I have a lot that I want to do to smooth out some edges that HC and HF but I have other stuff to do first. I did have to switch the way TTS was handled since the Firefox version is about ready and I had to change it up for that so I'm hoping it makes the voice more reliable (that will be hitting on the 1st with the HIT Tracker full release).

    About "mmmturkeybacon Color Coded Search with Checkpoints", it sort of looked like http://i.imgur.com/hg1bHG3.png (link is on https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/3118-mmmturkeybacon-color-coded-search-with-checkpoints). Maybe I was using a different version. Or perhaps I modified mine. But that is the old site anyway.

    Someone modified that script to work on the new site. I might try posting a picture of it later. I just need permission to post on greasyfork given their rules.

    Here is the script to make titles (and long requester names) fit.
    https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/36951-maketitlesfit

    Is the site supposed to make everything a hyperlink automatically? Is there a way to disable that? (Not up for searching the web to find out right now.)

    Someone also made a Preview4Panda script for me. So on the search pages and such, it replaces the Accept & Work buttons with Preview buttons, for those who prefer that. I also have a script that will replace the Created Time column with a Time Allotted column. Neither of these are posted yet. I also have an updated version of the Highlight Masters script, but I haven't uploaded it yet. I'm questioning whether it should be a new script or an update of the old one. Oh, and I have a script that removes the 'Upgrade Your Browser' thing and 'No more HITs' thing too. Some of these are buggy. To clarify, I haven't uploaded any of these in this specific paragraph yet.

    That's not our problem, or at least not mine. We need the title of the tabs to be logical, like it is in every other site on the web. All 3 title scripts don't work any more


    "Is the site supposed to make everything a hyperlink automatically? Is there a way to disable that? (Not up for searching the web to find out right now.)"
    Don't know yet. Haven't had time. But there's a Help page right on the forum, I think below your name in the corner


    "mmmturkeybacon Color Coded Search with Checkpoints"
    I don't work directly from the site, always through MTS. You can't filter out enough stuff working directly on the site. I would chuck Chrome if I had a panda program other than PC and TM for Firefox.

    HERE"S MY PROBLEM currently
    didn't know you script. :) I used to be able to view the whole queue, see how the time is distributed, how much is left, then choose one, maybe or maybe not the one on top. Now I can never view the whole queue because the top hit opens immediately. Don't know if the fault is Amazon or one of my scripts. Should I list my scripts for you? It's Firefox.

    I'll be back later this afternoon.

    Accept + Work--
    there's already one either in my Hit Details Enhancer or Dashboard Enhancer. If you fixed the tab titles, I would leave you in my will.

    I don't really know how to script. I can make some modifications, but someone has been creating scripts for me. Did elt need the MakeTitlesFit script I uploaded?

    parro, can you please explain the tab title issue? I do have a custom script I use to change the tab's titles for certain links. That it, if it matches a URL, it changes the tab's title to something custom. Although, I'm worried it may be lagging my browser after a period of time. Are you saying that the titles don't fit on the tabs, and you can't tell what tab is which?

    The MakeTitleFit script is about the page, not tabs. You know how we have a column for HIT titles? And if the HIT's title is long, it ends with ..., and how it can be a problem? This sort of wraps it.

    PC scripts are the only other thing that I can think of off the top of my head.

    even better, from the great hit thread
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/mturk-suite/

    thanks for making it work again on firefox!
    a few snags, after a restart the MTS icon gets placed at the end of the icon list
    and no longer works so there is no way to start anything
    not sure this can be fixed but Hit Finder doesn't restart from a pinned tab
    non of the export copy work, none of the script exports copy either so it might be some local conflict
    after I started Hit Finder the find button and delay spinbox no longer worked

    also, for sync Hit Tracker. status pages date.json goes much further back than 45 days
    I didn't test to see just how far but I was able to go back 3 months

    thanks, this does work on some pages. I think the @match lines have to be updated
    some of the search links miss getting the titles fixed
    but a big improvement

    wonder if it could work on the hit forker too?
    though it would be better just to get the hit forker patched

    Which URLs am I missing for the MakeTitlesFit? Or are you referring to specific cases where it doesn't look right? The script isn't perfect on all results by the way, especially if you use mmmturkeybacon Color Coded Search with Checkpoints. (I haven't uploaded this. Still needs some work done. It's a modification. I am not mmmturkeybacon.)

    I believe we can go back 150 days on status details. https://www.mturk.com/help

    My guess is that it's 120 days + 30 days as a buffer, hence 150 days.

    Scripts I'm thinking about uploading to greasyfork.
    1. mmmturkeybacon Color Coded Search with Checkpoints [a modification of someone else's script to work on WORKER]
    2. HighlightMasters: It will change the Title font color to red on search pages. Easier to see.
    3. Preview4Panda: Adds a button to toggle the Accept & Work button to Preview and back.
    4. warningUPGRADEandNOHITS: Gets rid of the UPGRADE banner and NO MORE HITS banner.
    5. Time4Created: That column that tells us when the HIT was created... gets replaced by the Time Allotted for the HIT itself.

    There is a way to determine your Approved amount without checking more than the dashboard. But you have to have your previous year amounts plus any errors to do the calculations. I don't know if it's worth putting out a script like this. I have one that's in my Goal script.

    6. NextHIT: Opens the Next Hit in queue by going to a bookmark.

    I might also try tearing one of my scripts apart to put a timer in the titlebar. Right now, it's in a script that does more than just that. That same script puts like (5) on the Tasks page if there are 5 HITs accepted. I need to think about this.
