    I don't wear a labcoat anymore since I've been banned from most labs due to trying to make blue meth just like they did in Breaking Bad. But this is how I usually spend my time in the computer.

    Legion Invasions were hotfixed. I leveled my 90 to 100 in less than 2 hours.

    I leveled an alt that was 40 to 60 in an hour and a half.

    Don't want to sleep so I can finish up my characters on my new server.

    That's right. It goes back to what a panda is in the first place which is just changing a link like https://www.mturk.com/mturk/preview?groupId=XXXXXXX to https://www.mturk.com/mturk/previewandaccept?groupId=XXXXXXX

    When you set the option to pantha, panda crazy uses the preview version of the link and then accepts the HIT instead of just using the previewandaccept (panda) version that would normally accept the HIT automatically when you first load the page. But batch throttling tells you there's no more HITs available if you try to panda when in reality there's hundreds or thousands available which makes panda so much weaker when it's normally so much stronger than previewing a HIT first

    Sounds like an awesome rundown to me. But it also sounds like a foreign language because I'm trying to understand it way too late at night.

    Basically what it comes down to is that for some reason when a batch is throttled and panda only works like once out of every 100 refreshes, if you preview the HIT first if there's any available it'll always show one to accept. So it essentially replaces panda'ing when panda becomes useless like that.

    Another situation where pantha becomes superior is if you're working on a batch that has let's say 100,000 available and you have the "Automatically Accept the next HIT" checkbox ticked and it suddenly tells you there's none left in the group after you submit.

    I tried to keep it short and sweet but I ended up typing another long message lol

    @Yuk@Yuk if I want a url or requester search like in TM, is there a way to do that without it accepting any hits (just notifying you if they start posting)? should i even bother doing this with PC and just leave it for other scripts?

    Leave it to nbc though to make a 2 second highlight last 50 seconds *and* have a misleading title. Connor Fields didn't lead from the start at all lolol.
    BMX is the only sport that's interesting to me at this olympics and they butchered the highlights.
    At least next year they will have skateboarding.

    You actually just stated the one strength TM has over Panda Crazy. It doesn't have a general search functionality that TM has.

    The author actually talks about it here http://www.mturkcrowd.com/posts/353803/
