I'm using this 'clickhappier-archive' account to post archival copies of old MTurk-related userscripts from userscripts-mirror.org (which is itself an archive of the defunct site userscripts.org) and forum posts, which their authors or others haven't re-posted on Greasyfork yet. Some of these may no longer be all that interesting as more recent scripts may do what they do better, but some remain very useful.

Version: 0.1


Note from Clickhappier: I've been using this script for months, and it works well for my needs, but how it works is more suitable for some workflows than others. It can only save the correct time when you accept a HIT and immediately work on it in the same tab. If you're accepting a bunch of HITs via repeated refreshing, or letting an accepted HIT sit for a while before working on it, or changing browsers, or whatever, it can't keep up with that. In those situations, I just keep track of my start/end times myself; and with batches, use that to calculate an estimated average time per HIT.
