      I got one the other day for missing an attention check. It was the first hit of the day, so I'm sure I was tired and missed it - so my fault.

        Merry Christmas Eve Eve and of course, Happy Festivus for the rest of us! Since we are celebrating Festivus today, we need the origin of it.

        We are going to be in the worst week of the year. Or at least it was for me last year. Don't think I'll be working too much. Too much Christmas stuff going on and cleaning and preparing. Dinner for 10 on Wednesday and the wife is starting to go into panic mode now.

            Okay, the new payment processing works like a dream. All of my money-including the one done yesterday-went in the bank today. The one yesterday was completed at 5:30 pm CST and it was in the bank this morning.

              I really like it Sweetheart. I don't have to worry about it or stress about it. I also think hits are paying quicker, too.

              This makes me feel a lot better about pulling the trigger. Think I'll wait till after the 1st just to make sure I have enough money to cover me the rest of the month unless somehow I get money for Christmas from someone (Haha)

            Good morning everyone! Otto caught a survey from:

            Anthony Saravanos
            Answer a survey about your opinions on the topic of Search Engines

            for $3.41 that only took me about 7:30 minutes, but had no reviews. So hoping for no rejection on that. Couldn't get the export in time.

              ANNOUNCEMENT : Up until the implementation of the new payment system, the URLs for the mTurk system, and the Amazon Payments system have been separate and distinct. With the new system, for some inexplicable reason, they are the same. (meaning this hasn't been thought through very well) This can cause unintended, and intended conflicts with some scripts run through TamperMonkey. Mostly, this is a vulnerability, not a problem with legitimate scripts. However, please be careful who's scripts you choose to run, as an unscrupulous script writer could gain access to your payments, and financial information via this means. To safeguard against this, I am recommending the following:

              1. Go to the page chrome-extension://dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo/options.html#nav=settings

              2. Change "Config mode" at the top of the General header to "Advanced"

              3. Follow down the page to the security section.

              4. Add these two URLs to the blacklisted section

              https://*.mturk.com/direct_deposit*
              https://*.mturk.com/payment_schedule*

              copy these in their entirely, including the * at the end.

              Then hit Save

              What this does is to prevent any script running through TamperMonkey from having access to your payment information in any way.

              AND for those of you using FireFox :

              1. Click the TamperMonkey Icon.

              2. Choose Dashboard.

              3. Go to the Settings Tab.

              4. Set the "Config Mode" at the top of the General header to "Advanced"

              5. Move down to the Security section.

              6. Add the two domains mentioned above to the Blacklist

              https://*.mturk.com/direct_deposit*
              https://*.mturk.com/payment_schedule*

              7. Save it.

              BTW: Otto does not interact with the mTurk system in exactly this same way, as it directly calls the mTurk database, not the entire mTurk system, but just to be sure, we will be including some safeguards into Otto in the next update.

              I WILL RUN THIS ANNOUNCEMENT ONCE A DAY FOR THE NEXT WEEK.
              Thanks to witch1 for bringing this information to my attention.
