    What is this?

    I am Tjbot! I'm a solution devised by the genious mods to prevent there ever being a day that hit threads aren't posted! The whole point of my existence is to post a hit thread if one doesn't exist by 12:08am PST. If you see this post, assume that this one is the main post. One of the mod team will clean up existing posts and consolidate once they wake up and get online. As my name indicates, I am a bot. I don't post, nor do I respond to PM's. If you have any problems, send an email to tjbot@ns4t.net or PM Tjololo, he can help out with any issues.

    I need a TO for Prolific studies.

    Researcher claimed 8 minutes of Inquisit for £0.80. Took me 16. Average is 18. That isn't a misestimate, that's just a lie.

    Edit: On the plus side, Prolific isn't Mturk. I don't hesitate to call them on it. Not worried about blocks and losing my account and all that.

    Prolific doesn't work with MT. But I once sent them an email about an error, and they were very nice about it.

    Thought I'd catch a few late things, but the board hasn't moved since 12:26. If I'm home, I generally knit and watch TV at night, then go back to MT feeling refreshed. Here's what I've done since 2011:

    You sound much like my mother -- knitting and watching TV. She churns out endless socks and hats and such and usually ends up taking them to the homeless shelter. She does do some fancier things like some of yours, but it is usually just mindless and relaxing I think.

    And yes, I've found Prolific to be much more responsive that Mechanical Turk. But then the automated email you get makes that true. I've always received a human response later though. They aren't necessarily quick to fix issues, but they seem to get to things eventually.

    At first almost everything there paid quite well, but they've been slowly sliding. I'd hate to see it turn into another mturk with 10 cent surveys and 5 cents/minute garbage.

    NVm, switched to tampermonkey from grease monkey and now it's all fine. Still, what were they thinking by just saying "fuck it, break ALL the scripts!"

    I've learned to knit on the web, and I haven't been doing it for very long. Mine isn't mindless; I'm constantly learning new techniques. Most of my projects are for me. And each hat and pair of socks is unique, otherwise I'd die of boredom.

    It's not just the scripts. All extensions have to be written in a diff programming language now called WebExtensions. Check out www.forums.mozillazine.com, the best help site for Mozilla products.

    You can use TamperMonkey with Firefox?

    Looks like no codes this morning ><, see this is what sucks about having to be up at 4:30 am in the morning. If they don't post you end up wasting your time because fuck all else posts at the asscrack of dawn.

    Maybe they aren't posting? Do they ever not post or skip days?

    Nvm, here they are.

    The later they post, the faster they get done.

    You mean the faster they get scammed, someone posted the other day they managed 400 of them done in that short a timeframe >.>

    Sometimes I wish I didn't have ethics...
