    I still use it and I don't have any issues with it. The only thing that bothers me is that it can stop running for no reason and doesn't let you know. Not that often but it's annoying. Just have to keep checking to make sure it's running.

    Yeah, I do. Every once in awhile it glitches out on me for no reason. I just have to look at it every so often and make sure it's all still running.

    Yeah sometimes it stops and you have to restart it. Also sometimes you lose all your data so it's good to back up what you have every few days at least cause you never know when it's going to happen.

    Panda Crazy, on the other hand doesn't do that. I've never seen it go offline for no reason. The only time Panda Crazy goes offline is when it's time for the 12th hour log in with Mturk. It does notify you. So that's pretty neat.

    That's pretty much what got me to try out Panda Crazy. It has a learning curve to it when you first use it but it's easy to use once you get the hang of it.

    I was told that if Mturk ever goes into the new site alone, worker.mturk.com, Turkmaster may or may not get updated for that site but Panda Crazy already is made for both sites.

    Nice! I'll have to check out Panda Crazy. Took a break from Mturk but have been working a bit again. Whats up with worker.mturk.com?

    Looks like Amazon was working on improving mturk by making an updated site for it. Don't know what's going on with that whether they'll do away with the regular site or not.

    Here's the link when they announced it.

    I think that was from last year March. I don't see a year on it but it's been around for while.

    Wow I can't believe it's been a year since then. I'm glad they are dragging their ass this time cause I didn't like the new site. I'm sure I'd get used to it but usually when they make a change it sucks.

    Actually, that's from 2017. I've been checking https://blog.mturk.com/ periodically.
