    Question about Hit Exporter. I have just MTC ticked:
    [​IMG]

    Are all the options suppose to show when I try and export a HIT? And after I confirm the export, I have to click again to get the box to disappear. Is this working as intended?

    What happened to the bars where you put your daily and weekly goal and it told you how much more you had to go to get to it?

    probably a dumb question where the answer is 'it depends', but how difficult is it to update scripts to work on the new site if one wanted to?

    (*I'm not using MTS (yet?), just various other scripts that do things I like)

    scripts that work in the HIT frame seem to be basically the same/are working fine.

    some of the other scripts I use I don't expect the writers to update them, I'm down with DIY fixing, I just haven't looked into it much yet.

    blah blah I'm probably just thinking out loud tbh

    It's intended as of now, but it will work like export does on worker when its up to speed.

    Its not so much as updating the scripts as it is completely rewriting them since worker and www share nothing in terms of DOM.

    Is there a way to contact a requester on the new site when I haven't done a hit for them yet? I can only find the link for requesters that I've done work for, and they changed it so I can't just put in the requester ID I want. thx

    Turking without a working data base is scaring me. I have a comfortable cushion for rejections, I just hate them. I was on a Mturk break when the change happened.
