    I actually like it. Now, I rarely use the browse feature since most of the stuff I panda is on HITScraper.

    • To speed up finding Tasks to work on, only Projects matching your Qualifications are shown by default.
    Looks like the default filter is greyed out for All HITS......(I'm qualified to work on")

    I think this is all leading to mturk not being an open crowdsource platform. Within the next 3 years most of the work will be batches negotiated with Amazon, and they will just recruit the work outside of Amazon (india, whoever will do it the cheapest). This wipes Amazons hands of responsibility they won't have to ban non-American accounts anymore. So there will be many hits, but most invisible or just closed off to private work forces. Which will lead to some serious P/R issues for amazon, they are slowly turning into a slave labor aggregator instead of a crowdsource platform. I mean you can't just go on and find hits, it will all be qualed or private work to circumvent labor laws.
