Release Notes

  • Version 0.5.1
    • New Features:
      • Script will be unpaused automatically after you close the popup window for filling in captcha or logging back in.
      • Search mode jobs should be a bit faster now after last update.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Captchas should get detected on the new site now.
      • Max and min price search options should now save correctly.
  • Version 0.5.0
    • New Features:
      • Search mode has 3 new options which will let you filter out hits by term or group ID. use these so it won't panda hits you don't want to do or already have done. You can also include hits by term for it to panda for you. Only one term will be searched so don't use commas to separate multiple terms. Doesn't work that way and could be extremely slow if it had to search each hit for each term.
      • Search mode can now be limited to a max price. Remember these new options are for convenient but could slow down search jobs so use them sparingly. Later I might allow more GID and terms.
      • You can now revert options back to the default value by pressing a D button on the right side of a text input field or double click the number for incremental digit values.
      • Ham timer can now be lowered to 5 seconds instead of 10 for delayed ham timer mode.
      • You can now force a job to automatically go into delayed ham mode on the job edit dialog.
      • The stop auto slowdown button option will now be saved so you don't have to always turn it on each time you restart the script.
      • Script detects mturk daily limit and will stop all jobs giving a new message as well.
      • You can now set a dailylimit in the details dialog for a job which can be used for personal limits you want. It resets at midnight MTURK time or if you set the dailylimit back to 0.
      • When receiving a captcha the requester name is now bold in the dialog that pops up.
      • Script now will work on the new site but with limited features and some problems. Two ways to make it work on new site:
        • go to: https://www.mturk.com/mturk/welcome?pandacrazy=on&usenewsite=yes
        • go to: https://worker.mturk.com/?filters[search_term]=pandacrazy=on
        Using the worker.mturk.com url to start Panda Crazy will allow it to accept added hits from the helper script when that gets updated in the future. If you use the old mturk.com url to start it then it only accepts added jobs from the helper script from the mturk.com and not from the new site. This is a security feature from the browser dealing with messaging passing only allowed on same domain name and not including subdomains.
      • Current problems and feature changes for new site:
        • Return links in queue watch will not be shown due to a different way of returning which needs more information.
        • Pantha jobs will just do a regular panda due to changes in the accepting a specific hit on new site. (Pantha mode is no longer great anyway)
        • Any filtered jobs will only panda the hits and not filter them out due to changes in the accepting a specific hit on new site.
      • More efficient use of the queue data for the queue helper script which will be updated soon with many new features.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Dialogs should show correct text color even if using stylish to change mturk theme.
      • Jobs Date Added will show the full date instead of a shorten version.
  • Version 0.4.4
    • New Features:
      • Will now remember the date a job was added and display it in the details section. (Shows date only for newer added jobs.)
      • Details section will now show the pay rate and duration. You can edit them too but will be changed by script after job is found.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Fixed a few problems with adding jobs from external scripts.
      • Fixed a bug when changing friendly name or title and it reverts back to the original.
  • Version 0.4.3
    • New Features:
      • Notifications will now be shown for a captcha alert and when you are logged off.
      • Clicking on any of the friendly options in the details section it will change both friendly options to an input so it's faster to change both.
      • Now when in search mode there is another stat displayed in the accepted stats. It will show the accepted number followed by a / and then the amount of new hits it has found. It will add to this counter every time a new hit drops. It will also add to the counter for every UNIQUE hit it finds.
      • When a job is in search mode it will now remember the last 12 hits it found and saves it in storage for future use.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Fixed a bug when showing the time that a hit was accepted and showing undefined for the hour.
      • Fixed a bug when background color of job does not change back to normal after limit reached and job is turned off.
      • Fixed a bug where clicking on the collecting status text wouldn't show the full list of jobs collecting.
      • Fixed a small bug when collecting keywords from a hit and it collected spaces and carriage return in text.
  • Version 0.4.2
    • New Features:
      • Will now show release notes for current updated version at first start after an update.
      • Can get a lot more help for the script at http://pandacrazy.allbyjohn.com/
      • Added an option to maybe speed up pantha mode but could cause more pre's.
      • Time accepted is now in a different color so it's easier to see in the accepted status window.
      • When exporting alarm sounds the file will end with "_w_alarms" to distinguish it from others with no alarms.
      • When importing a file the browse button will only show files ending with .json so data files are easier to find.
      • When searching through jobs you can now sort by jobs that have the once option enabled to make it easier to find disposable jobs.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Fixed a bug where the add tab button disappeared by mistake.
      • Fixed a bug where the captcha counter may not disappear after not getting any captchas after the limit.
      • May have fixed a bug when a hit is collected in between grabbing the queue hits and not having the newest hit in queue watch.
      • Fixed a bug when collection is stopped because once is enabled but the job cell stays red.
      • Fixed a bug where trying to change once in the details window will not work correctly.
      • Fixed a bug when changing options and it would change it before you pushed the save button.
      • Fixed a bug where you couldn't put a job into Save Search Group ID Mode.
  • Version 0.4.1
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Fixed a bug where the new captcha counter would change captcha number to 0 and not count back up.
      • Changed how the script displays the jobs to make it faster at load up. Tested it with 400 jobs and the delay is better now. I still recommend to have under 400 jobs but it shouldn't cause a lot of slowness now.
      • Changed the text to disable captcha counter to: Show Captcha Counter Text
      • Will now show unknown if groupid is blank.
      • Will stop a panda if groupid is blank.
      • Disabled moving of tabs due to a bug when moving jobs to the moved tab.
  • Version 0.4.0
    • New Features:
      • Added a captcha counter on the bottom after the queue watcher tab. The script will count each hit it accepts and will reset the counter when it gets to a captcha. There is a new option in the generals menu for the number of hits before a captcha appears. It's at 35 by default.
      • Added a new option in the generals menu to disable the captcha counter for people who have masters and don't get captcha's.
      • Added a new option for the number of hits before a captcha appears. This number will be used for future updates but now it's only used to make the captcha counter disappear after (this number+5) hits accepted without a captcha.
      • The Search Jobs and Search Mturk window is now redesigned. It should be faster for large amount of jobs instead of taking around 10 seconds to load. The window looks a bit different too. The cancel or close button is at the top right of the window.
      • The captcha alert window now shows more details of the hit it was trying to grab and has a link to the panda it tried.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Fixed a bug where you couldn't delete multiple jobs in the search jobs window.
      • Fixed a bug where the search jobs didn't show all of the jobs you have. This happened because some jobs became an orphan and they had no position in any of the tabs. This might have happened due to moving them to different tabs or an error when deleting it. Now when you search jobs it will actually delete the orphans to make sure those jobs won't cause a problem.
  • Version 0.3.18
    • New Features:
      • The time a hit was accepted will now show up in the accepted tab on the bottom.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Fixed a bug where you couldn't search on mturk anymore with the search mturk button.
      • Fixed a bug where it would not get out of ham mode when deleting a job in ham mode.
  • Version 0.3.17
    • New Features:
      • Added a delete button on each job that looks like an X to make it easier for people to delete jobs.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Script should load up faster for people who have over 100 jobs. It will still be slow when listing all the jobs.
      • May have fixed a problem when listing jobs and not all of them shows up. If this problem still occurs I can fix it easier if someone could go into their javascript console and report any errors that come up when displaying the jobs. Also the next job after the last one is probably the reason why it's not listing all of the jobs so finding it and deleting it may fix it.
      • May fix a problem for people using the queue helper script where it doesn't always go to the next hit in queue.
      • Cleaned up some code to iterate over objects a bit faster.
  • Version 0.3.16
    • New Features:
      • Two more stats are added for PRE'S. It now counts pre's it gets in ham mode and out of ham mode. These stats can be seen by clicking on the PRE'S text at the top. Pre's from ham mode is expected so it's not as important as the pre's it gets in normal mode.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Queue hit limit for jobs are more responsive and more accurate.
      • A big memory problem was found and now fixed. If you found the script slowing down or not getting a lot of hits when leaving the script running for hours or days than this should fix it. I recommend to restart the script every day any way. Best way to restart in chrome specifically is to close the tab or window PC is running. Then make a new window and start PC so it clears out all the memory that tab or window was running. Chrome doesn't clear out that memory as much as it should.Technical: The memory problem was coming from tooltips in the Jquery UI library. It wasn't removing the div tooltip message it was creating so it would just add up until the script would slow down too much. The tooltips are supposed to do that to be compatible to all browsers but I didn't realize that. I found a work around by destroying the tooltip after the mouse moves away and then recreating the tooltip.
  • Version 0.3.15
    • New Features:
      • When importing an exported file you can now choose to load only data, only alarms or both so you don't need to save alarms all the time.
      • Total earning shows your P.E. plus the hits in your queue pay plus any new collected hits.
      • Can now go to https://www.mturk.com/mturk/welcome?pandacrazy=on&resetalldata=yes to reset data if you need to.
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Alarms from exported files did not save correctly sometimes but now it should work.
      • Some memory cleanup just in case of memory leaks which may happen on fast batches.
      • Display minimal shows 3 rows instead of 5 rows which stopped working when I made a previous fix.
      • Tries to fix any data that had a null value from previous versions. Can try importing an older exported file to see if it loads it in.
  • Version 0.3.8 to 0.3.14
    • Bugs Fixed:
      • Last update caused problems due to saving null data in 2 data spots.All these updates were small changes to try to fix this error.

  • Version 0.3.7 = Queue watch is now sorted when new hit is accepted. Search mode has a new option for minimum pay rate to collect. New way to input seconds or milliseconds for some options.

  • Version 0.3.1 = Dragging and dropping jobs on a tab will move jobs to the bottom of that tab contents. Moving jobs should now be a lot easier but can only position a job in it's own tab now.
