    If you choose the color codes in MTS, the ones with no TO are gray. All the others are yellow, green or orange.

    Does anyone know of any good guides to maintaining your own private version of a regularly updated project like MTS?

    The legacy version only worked on the old www site.

    Is there a newer version, or has it been replaced by Hit Forker? or is there another workaround?

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding your issue, but could you leave a TO yourself with a bad rating, since you know they reject? Then they'll come up with a low rating and you can choose to only view results with high enough requester rating for you.

    No, but like, if you leave a TO rating with a bad rating, it doesn't really matter anymore on your end, since you already got the rejection, and your ratings are already affected. Sure you and everyone else can red bomb their TO to get even, but it won't make your own ratings any better to do so. But I do that anyways, even though it doesn't make me feel much better.

    What I'm saying is that it would be better to just have an option to block out requesters with no TO ratings. Or maybe just requesters with no TO ratings that offers under $1.00 HITs. Because it wouldn't be worth the risk to do their HITs. And save us more time, instead of panic accepting every HIT you see, and then having to return their HIT later because you don't want to risk it.

    There seem to be a bug in the Minimum Requiters Rating where it isn't working, and the most of the colors aren't showing up in mturk suite.

    RIP hit tracker history - I can't find my backup, and the computer said it kept all my personal files while factory resetting, but I don't know where MTS saves the tracker stuff to.

    By "factory resetting," you mean you wiped the HD? or you did a Windows repair install? What browser are you using?

    Quick question: is there a way to export the watchers from HIT Catcher? I don't see those in the json file when I do an export from HIT Tracker, and I can't find any other place to do exports.

    Thank you!

    Please.

    We really need a checkbox to block out new requesters. 95% of my rejections comes from new requesters. No ratings means high risk, and they shouldn't show up if we check the checkbox. Please.

    Judging new requesters is a skill that takes time to develop. You actually have to pay attention to all of the subtle details about how the HIT presents itself, and you have to do this pretty quickly. I have done many good "one shot" hits by new requesters and some good batch hits (although my batch skills are much weaker than my one shot skills right now...) I would personally suggest that avoiding new requesters is a strategy that will not yield long term success.

    Has anyone else's HIT Catcher stopped giving sound alerts? Mine catches, but hasn't sounded for the past week or so. I only have a few regulars, so I noted down Group IDs and reinstalled MTS, but still nothing.
