    Hi, I was wondering if there is any trick or ability or script to add to watch a requester with hits posted over a certain number? I suppose on turkmaster specifically, but any script really..I've noticed several of my 'fav's have I guess a placeholder? When the hits I was working on run out but it still shows in a search with just one hit showing for a while,
    Similarly, another I enjoyed working on no longer had any available for me, though it showed 200-something hits left, now down to 176, which I understand, my issue is that I don't really want to be contacted for this specific...group? of hits... still learning the jargon..haha...But would like to know when there is another 'group' posted. or is this just how it is and I just need to deal with it.
    Thanks :)

    Have you looked into Hit Monitor? It's not quite as specific as what you're asking for but I think it's more stream lined than setting up a requester watcher on turk master

    I don't use it so I can't be of much help but here is the link to the info thread: http://www.mturkcrowd.com/threads/new-hit-monitor-v2-with-sms-alerts.200/

    Only looking for groups with over a certain number isn't really going to be that helpful because you can't really know what size batch will be posted and what if it's only 1 hit less than what you set it for? I think it's better to see anything posted by your favorite requesters, then you choose what you want to work on.

    I hope that helps!

    Thanks I'll check on that, I went a little script-happy and not sure what I have anymore...btw probably another thread, too lazy.. but I had all my bookmarked requesters disappear yesterday in the middle of things, disabled other scripts, still not there, and nothing I was adding to turkmaster was showing up, just me? anything to do with site issues maybe?
