    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.
    Want to make tomorrow's thread? Just go for it!

    It says this site isn’t safe anymore, who can fix that?

    Oh wow you both got on? I thought I was locked out since last night. I got the same warning but still couldn't log in. I'm not sure how I did just now after fooling around for 10 min trying to bypass the warning. I've already let Andy know so we'll see. Only he can fix this. It's just the SSL certificate that needs to be installed which he hasn't done yet.

    Looks like someone forgot to renew it. Which means someone with an awful lot of skills and effort could theoretically hack the forum. I'd worry if my bank screwed this up; here, not so much.

    If you change the https in the URL to http the browser won't nag. Of course this probably turns off all the security and encryption too.

    Either way, why would anyone bother? I suspect the only "sensitive" info they could get is your MTF password. You shouldn't use the same password for something like this as important stuff like banks anyhow.

    I didn't have any problem logging in. I was wondering why no one was around. I thought everyone decided to take the day off.

    This has to be the best-tested beta feature ever. I'm sure once Amazon is finally happy with it, perhaps sometime next decade, it will be awesome.

    I forgot that was up there and was surprised to see it now. I totally blocked it out of my mind whenever I go to the dashboard.

    Said if nothing happens within 10 min, to submit so that's what I did. I was doing other HIT while waiting so that wasn't a big deal.

    I waited over 4 minutes. Then it started. Then it got writey even before the actual task started. I cursed him out and returned it.

    Not in a survey mood today. Not feeling tolerant enough.

    Yeah I'm having trouble in Chrome so I'm using Edge for now. Andy said he should be able to fix it tonight. :fingerscrossed:

    OK, really done with surveys for the day. It is stuck in a loop. I click Next and it just reloads the page with answers already selected.

    I'd turk more if requesters knew what the hell they were doing.

    I had that happen once but after that it went to the end for the code. I thought maybe I had missed a bubble.

    Probably would help if Mturk were more user friendly for requesters. I think I heard it's complicated on their end making HITs. I had one tell me the URL didn't go as planned that Mturk was messing it up and various other issues.

    I thought everybody took the day off.
    Pretty sure the link I had to this site was so old it was http instead of https, which is why I didn't have any problem

    Everything I did today sucked so hard it didn't feel like there was any sense in sharing it, anyway

    3.5 min - survey started off right away which made me think did I return this in the past? No, that's how it starts - without any consent form. Unusual.

    I'll always post my Good Morning post (unless I can't get on due to the forum issues or my service), even if I'm taking the day off.
