    Hi everyone! I'm new here but an old turker(been turking off and on for about 4 years). I'm coming back from a several month long break and was wondering if anyone could fill me in on mturk? I see a lot of new requesters that I don't recognize and would appreciate suggestions/tips for decent requesters/batches/etc to keep an eye out for.

    Google has died off for sure.
    Though Zoltar has been really active this last week.

    The good paying requesters change from day to day.
    Nothing is ever certain on Mturk.

    There are some new scripts.

    https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/21815-hit-finder-beta
    This is pretty much going to be the new hitscraper once Mturk switches to their new website.
    It's in beta right now.....like Mturk has been for 10 years.

    https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/19168-jr-mturk-panda-crazy
    Many are using this as a replacement for Turkmaster as it helps with "batch throttling"

    oh and captchas are easier to fill out now you don't have to worry about going too fast on them. In case you're not part of that elite master crew @Defective@Defective

    I'm assuming Zoltar is a new google variant? I'll have to keep an eye out, though I'm sure everyone eats those up every time they post, lol.

    Batch throttling....I never thought I'd see that with Mturk...

    Thank you so much for the information and the links! Going to try to set up panda crazy and hit finder right now since it seems kinda slow atm.

    I have masters...I don't feel elite though- I feel very much like a noob since I've come back lol. Thanks for the info, though! I'm glad they changed them...they were always so frustrating before.

    Zoltar is a google requester.
    They go by "Project Endor (Zoltar)"
    Usually post in the mornings though they have been occasionally posting in the later afternoon/early evening..

    Everyone gets a piece of the pie from them so if you're here in the mornings, or whenever they post you'll be able to grab some.

    For Masters, Christoper Chi has been really hype right now though they just had a pay cut.

    Replace Gears with Titanfall 2 and you got a deal.
