Question

Wondering if there a script that's like Hit Scraper that'll auto accept based on TO / Pay :: IE: TO Pay Rating >3.5 / Pay >$1 ...and it auto-PandAs? Clearly, it won't catch all.. and it'll prob open 100 tabs if you leave it alone for a bit, but wondering if its something that exists/feasible?

Thanks!

Nothing like that currently exists... and it's not REALLY feasible, or the kind of thing you would want in practice.

1) TO reviews are for the requester, as opposed to the individual HIT. It's pretty common for a requester to post various kinds of work with drastically different pay rates, so you'd end up grabbing stuff that had decent reviews but sucked.

2) You would inevitably grab surveys that you didn't actually qualify for.

3) Unless you're monitoring it, you'll most likely grab things and have them expire.

4) Potentially, massive quantities of page request errors. Because you would basically be setting up an auto-refresh for every single thing that had decent pay reviews.

In essence what you would be creating is an automated version if an inexperience turker, blindly grabbing anything that showed a moderately acceptable rate of pay without looking at it. Automating certain functions is great, but if you remove your own human oversight from the process too much, you'll just shoot yourself in the foot. You do need to be monitoring the work that you accept.

Got a point there.... It all made sense in my head, but in theory makes none. Thank you
