    I'd like to keep building my Turkmaster list during my downtime, but I'm unable to find how to watch a specific requester if they have no currently active HITs available. Is there a list I can use or line I can manually add to my exported list? Tried searching Google and around the forums, but I guess I'm not using the best search parameters.

    If you can find an forum post with a HIT export from the requester you want, you can click on the requester name and it will take you to a page on mTurk where a "Watch this Requester" button for TM will pop up.

    i.e. if you were to click on "Viral Mturk" in this export (http://www.mturkcrowd.com/posts/230375/), it will show no results on mturk but that little gray button pops up. You could also click the PANDA link from there to get the "Watch this HIT" button.

    If you can't find an export, you can still get to that page by finding the requester ID # from a search on Turk Opticon (or other means) and then add that number (looks like our IDs) at the end of this url: https://www.mturk.com/mturk/searchbar?selectedSearchType=hitgroups&requesterId=PUTITRIGHTHERE

    i.e. Viral Mturk ID is A2UFLDVZ75JD9M so the link is https://www.mturk.com/mturk/searchbar?selectedSearchType=hitgroups&requesterId=A2UFLDVZ75JD9M

    I hope that helps!
