    USES
    To catch surveys that you missed
    -Even if it says, "There are no more hits in this group," you still have a chance. Requesters may repost another batch of surveys under the same group ID, or someone will throw it back/have it expire.

    To hoard batches or catch trickle batches
    -To hoard batches: you can 'run the panda' or repeatedly hit refresh (ctrl+r, f5, etc.) to grab/hoard the batch if you dont have the hoard script.
    -Batches that trickle may come in throughout the day at random amounts. 'running the panda' may help you catch these tricklers throughout the day.


    WHAT IS "RUNNING A PANDA," "TURNING ON THE PANDA," OR ANY OTHER SIMILAR VARIATION?
    PUT LINK IN ADDRESS BAR
    HIT ENTER
    TURN ON AUTO-REFRESH PROGRAM
    LET RUN UNTIL YOU GET IT OR GET BORED


    IF YOU ARE TRYING TO CATCH SOMETHING, IGNORE THE "THERE ARE NO MORE HITS IN THIS GROUP" MESSAGE

    2nd guide - use your queue
    the most basic way

    WORK FROM QUEUE
    When working on batches with decent timers

    STEP 1: USE PANDA AUTO-REFRESHING in a DIFFERENT WINDOW

    STEP 2: CLICK ON "HITS ASSIGNED TO YOU

    STEP 3: CLICK ON "CONTINUE..." on the FIRST JOB near the top

    (WHEN YOU FINISH THAT JOB, THE NEXT ONE IN QUEUE WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE SHOWN)


    TIPS:
    HAVE THE AUTO REFRESH PROGRAM GOING ABOUT AS FAST, or a little slower, THAN YOU CAN COMPLETE THE HITS SO YOUR QUEUE STAYS FULL ALL THE TIME.

    ok- Have a question- somehow I no longer have auto accept in my Turkmaster menu- I just checked, "alert" for a requester and it went away and now it does not show up at all- I feel like am idiot- I disabled it in FF and installed again, but still the only choice I get is for an alert- anybody have a suggestion- what did I do- I broke it :(


    Alright, I think I'm figuring it out- once I click alert- the auto accept and the stop after accept disappear- and you can only alert for a page or group- like .75 surveys- so you only see the alert option- but if you "watch" a hit that is posted- then you get the option to auto accept...and you can set it for hits that there are no more of currently, too- very cool.


    Thank you so much for the thread, Yahu- very nice.

    GETTING STARTED WITH SCRIPTS

    WHY?
    -Can help with efficiency
    -Track data/save numbers/etc.


    HOW?
    -By installing tampermonkey or greasemonkey on chrome/ff, youll be able to use scripts which can be found at greasyfork, etc.

    HOLD ON
    Before you start
    -Remember scripts are helpful, but this shouldn't be translated to instant gratification
    -If you do not know how a script works, id suggest not using it then
    -In addition, not knowing how a script works make you even more responsible for your own damn errors. A rejection because you left a script running is your own fault, dumbnuts!
    -If a script works for someone (ie. they know how to use it), don't always assume that it'll work as well for you.
    Keep in mind
    -Scripts are NOT for cheating
    -Again, don't install a script if you don't know what it does.
    -Scripts don't make you a better worker, especially if you don't understand why/how they work.


    WHAT?
    Track data/Save Numbers:
    -HITDB - Database of past hits. needs to be manually updated.
    -Turkopticon - shows requester ratings that are used "to add context" (ie. colors are cool, but dont be a lazy ******** and read that shit)
    -Save AA time - On the pending part of the dashboard (where you look at the actual hits youve done, not just the number) shows an AA time. Not retroactive.
    -Scroll to work space - Scrolls to work space. I love this script




    REMEMBER!
    -Less is more- you dont need to have all scripts active at the same time. In fact, it's probably better that you have the bare minimum running. Some scripts stay active on certain HIT frames (zing script, etc.) but others stay active at all times, which can lead to an accidental submission, etc. For this reason, it is important that you keep track of what scripts stay active, and on what pages.
    --For example: I have about 7 active scripts when I open my dashboard (all of which are things like 'projected earnings,' HITdb, etc.). When I open the 'HITs' page (All hits), I have 4 (TO, Great hit export, Database, and an ID script).
    ---One very important reason for this is, besides accidental submissions etc., Some scripts cause a page request, which adds to your already very stretched limit. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? It means that you can't PANDA things as fast.


    This post was slightly adapted from the "scripts disclaimer," and contains a bunch of spelling errors and grammatical issues. It also contains a bunch of strong opinions by me, YAHU. -Shaddap
