So, does anyone know how the new MTURK Worker Site will impact scripts? Will HIT DB , Panda Crazy, and (most importantly for me) Hit Finder Beta still work?

Will we need all new scripts?

Also, is changing over by December 15th mandatory?

My experience with updates and new interfaces for established platforms is that they usually make things a lot worse so I'm very concerned.

Any insight appreciated as I don't want a big (lousy) surprise 10 days before Christmas!

Yes. The current version will cease to exist on December 15th.

The new site has been up and available for use since July of last year with people using it since that time so there shouldn't be any sudden surprises for anyone when December 15th arrives.
