    Wish I had knew that way back when I wanted to know it. haha. Now i've gotten it via replys from requestors. I had tried the one qualification thing for techlist, but its still in my pending months later...they never replied. hehe.

    Along the same lines, I'm thinking of writing a little Greasemonkey script to automatically hide HITs that say they're for some worker ID other than one's own. Some days there will be a whole crop of them and I'd rather just not see them.

    You know what would be cool? If I had a way to hide those requestors that I wouldn't work for if I was starving to death. I hate sifting through pages of low paying/no paying gigs to find the requestors I adore.

    The best solution would be if mturk would make a feature where we can search by requesters.

    Yeah, I agree with that and will urge ergo to do something on that line instead. I'm also often offended on seeing loads of HITs of Questions some Swami may be bothered about and different forms of query which is mostly organic. I'll be very grateful if you find me some way of getting rid of them.
    Confession is good for the soul, but bad for your career.

    I get so aggravated with those two! The questions are often so blatantly moronic that it's an insult to even be asked. Second graders in the "special class" know the answer to these questions. Worse still, they expect us to qualify the answer with a URL where we found it. As if we actually had to search, because we're THAT stupid. Why don't they just have one request with dozens of hits that ask different questions, instead of each question being a request? I want to go on a five state killing spree every time I have to go through 5-10 pages before I find a valuable request. Especially when I notice how absurd their requests are.

    Along the same lines, is there an easy way to extract the requestor id and the auto pay values out of the HIT source page?

    I tried playing around with the worker ID script to get the values of "hitAutoApply" and "requestorId" to show up in an alert box but I didn't have any luck.

    For example, here is an Askville 3 cent HIT with an autopay set for 11 days:

    <input type="hidden" name="hitAutoAppDelayInSeconds" value="950400">

    (950,400 seconds divided by 86,400 seconds in a day equals 11 days.)

    Requester ID:

    <input type="hidden" name="requesterId" value="A27TJJ2TRM2Q9I">

    Well, the easiest way is just to look at requesterId= in the URL.

    But by script, you can do:

    Code:
    javascript:alert("Requester ID is " + document.getElementsByName('requesterId')[0].value);
    Make it into a bookmark on your address bar and it will come in handy.
