    Celebrate Kwanzaa HITs December 26, 2019

    Kwanzaa is a seven day festival that celebrates African and African American culture and history. Kwanzaa takes place from 26th December to 1st January.

    The name Kwanzaa comes from the phrase 'matunda ya kwanza' which means 'first fruits' in the Swahili language (an Eastern African language spoken in countries including Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique and Zimbabwe). Kwanzaa is mostly celebrated in the USA.

      Good, morning Bear. I don't have anything to return, but I have some gift cards to spend. I love gift cards because I can get what I want.

      I like gift cards too. Would rather buy my own present.

      I need to return some bar stools to Walmart. I will do it later on. I prefer people and hubby to give me gift cards and good old fashion cash. Don’t buy me junk and expect me to like it. I won’t do it to you. Be considerate.

        Happy Kwanzaa, Merry Christmas, Happy Boxing Day, and all the other holidays I have probably missed here. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas/holiday! Ours was full of family, excitement and chaos. Dinner for 10 went as well as could be expected. Our 2 year old woke up with the worst cold she has ever had on Christmas, but that didn't surprise us, last Easter she ended up with Croup which turned into a terrible ear infection, Halloween she got the stomach flu, and Christmas a horrible cold. That's about the only times she has been sick in 2 and a half years as well. Just always for the holidays. My wife will be disinfecting every toy she got for the next week now and is slowly dying inside since she knows she will get it as well. Our daughter seems to assume her mommy is a Kleenex. Other than that, she was in great spirits, seemed to really get the concept of Christmas this year, and was spoiled beyond belief. Where we are going to put all this stuff, we don't know. Things are still a bit of a train wreck around here from the renovations. Going to try to not work much this week, though I am 11 HITS away from 10,000 so I figure I need to get those out of the way.

        Hope it's a successful day for everyone, or as best as it can be the week of Christmas.

          Thanks everyone. She's pretty cuddly today and just wants to curl up and read books so hopefully we can just relax for a few days and this won't turn into something else once again. Fingers crossed. It's pretty sad when they get sick.

          I hope she feels better soon. I know I've always had the uncanny ability to get sick on holidays and my Birthday. Never fails. I was surprised I wasn't sick this Christmas.

            I caught 2 HITs from kixlab-jean but they won't move past the tutorial. Anyone else having this problem? Never mind, I figured it out!

              Happy holidays everyone. I had been missing in action for a long time. I knew I needed to Turk since Christmas is over with and I spent too much money. I hosted Christmas at my house this year and we had 2 separate parties. One party was a gingerbread house party that happened last week and this week was Christmas. For Christmas, we decided on a low country boil for 8 people. The children had pizza. So now I am here trying to make money while I’m off. 😢

                unfortunately, the rest of the year tends to be pretty slow. I am here but not expecting much

                Consider giving Otto a try, makes turking so much easier and more profitable, even on a slow day.

              Good Morning, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Boxing day and happy return day. I have a gift card to use too. We don't do many presents because we are all adults and usually buy what we want when we want it. Of course after we save the money to buy it.

                Good to see that we all made it past Christmas okay. I'm going to start getting re-organized for the new year now. Mostly that means that I'm doubling down on making a sustained, and organized push forward for the board and myself. So, in the new year, if you notice that things are becoming more organized...that's me.

                  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.

                  I'm always relieved when Christmas is over. I really don't enjoy the week between Christmas and New Year's Day...I just want everything to get back to normal.

                  I set up my withdrawal schedule this morning. Hopefully it will be there each Friday like I want, so we'll see next week. If it's not, I'll switch to 3 days until I get to the day of the week that I want.

                    I set mine up this morning too. I am going on the 3 day mostly because I don't think Amazon needs to make anymore money off me than they already make.
