    Yeah, VG generally sucks in terms of pay, but they usually approve, and quickly. To get to $8.00+/hr when nothing else is around, try this (developers will laugh, I'm sure, but this is for idiots like me):

    1. Go to Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey and install the lightest MTurk userscript you can find
    2. Access the script options, click edit script, and make sure there are no match URLS. If so, delete them
    3. Check for include URLS, and make sure these are included:
    // @include https://www.mturkcontent.com/dynamic/*
    // @include https://s3.amazonaws.com/*
    4. Delete the contents of the script you downloaded (everything under // ==/UserScript== ) or everything under the part that includes, well, includes
    5. Copy and paste this text into the script under the portion you just deleted (this will permanently hide the instructions and perhaps other things on almost all HITs)***DISABLE THE SCRIPT WHEN NOT IN USE!!!***:

    //Hides Instructions

    document.getElementsByClassName('container')[0].style.display='none';
    document.getElementsByClassName('guidelines')[0].style.display='none';


    6. If you are a FF user, install BoxShooter: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/boxshooter/?src=api
    7. After installation, click on BoxShooter options and enable checkboxes.
    8. From now on, just right click once on each Genome iFrame page that's reloaded (every time you click the next arrow, right click once), select all on from the checkbox menu that pops up, and move on. All checkboxes in every iFrame (on every new page) will be checked automatically so you don't ever have to worry about checking them on unusable sentences and/or sentences written by complete dipshits.
