    Thanks for checking! I'll put a note about it in the worker site scripts thread.

    Hi, for people using Hitfinder, on Friday so we think that it'll be switched over to pull fromt he new site? I mean, I've switched my settings to the worker site, but my hits still come from the old site right now. I though someone said they thought the plan was that it was being worked on. Does anyone have any news about it? Am I missing something?

    The HITs come from Worker, they just point to Www since that was the most used site. MTS HF will be good to go by Friday, the userscript will not.

    Hey there :) great, thank you very much. (Not sure I know what the userscript is, but pretty happy to hear about HF.)

    Is this why the Worker URL for Finder isn't working? I've been trying it on and off all day and nothing.

    That's because of something else but will be addressed in the same update.

    Current progress and updates

    MTS:

    TL;DR be patient as things will actively be updated and fixed.

    MTurk HIT Database Mk.II

    It is my understanding that this will be updated, but not before the forced changeover.

    The more I use the new worker site, the more that I hate it. It resets filter preferences every time a new search page is loaded. It does a bunch of useless and buggy redirecting, and the restrictions on grabbing hits are terrible. I dunno how it's possible to spend so much time on something and end up with a product that's a downgrade from one of the most outdated sites on the internet, but apparently it's possible.

    Is there anymore information about AA on worker, or have they decided to not let us see it at all anymore?

    Their objective is to prevent workers from scamming HITs with short AA times.

    Sure hope TPTB doesn't get ideas to mess around with the requester defaults....

    (I shouldn't even say that because of 'eyes' and 'ears')
