    Do you think Indian workers have more HIT options then us Canadians?

    No, we're both locked out of all the US only, and there are more Canada only than India only in my experience. Sucks to be a non-American Turker in general, I think.
    It's all good.

    The problem for me as a Canadian is that sites like hit notifier and hits worth turking for, or pretty much any forum that posts hits is useless to me because they are all posting US hits As a Canadian I've only found one requester that I can consistently work for, just one lol.

    I feel you. I use a combination of HIT Scraper, PandA Crazy, and Overwatch. I also made a script that turns "US only" red on the forum, so I can skip those HITs quickly. I can share it with you if you have Tampermonkey.

    I do indeed have Tampermonkey and would love that script if you would be willing to share!

    Is overwatch better than Mturk Suite? that's what I currently use in conjunction with Panda Crazy, should I switch or add overwatch possibly?

    I don't know, I've got mTurk Suite but I only use it for Tracker. I like overwatch, but it might be a personal preference. I think the most important thing is having stuff to put into it.

    I'll PM you about the script.
    It's all good.

    Ok, to my fellow Canadian mturks. I just completed my ten day probation period and have the option to transfer to "amazon gift card" which is useless for us Canadians, since most vendors there will not ship to Canada or will charge heavy fees. You cannot even purchase other gift cards to liquidate the funds that are owed to you. It's like working for Canadian tire and being paid with their canadian tire money. You should immediately write to Jeff Bezos here jeff@amazon.com This is complete nonsense!

    On top of everything, I reached the 500 hit approval mark and I see very little work available to us Canadians.

    We could start an "Expand your horizons beyond the U.S. - include Canada in your requirements!" contact-the-requester campaign

    I've already contacted a few - if nothing else, hopefully it'll at least put a bug in their ear and get them thinking

    It's just like company towns, where you were paid in "scrip" you could only spend at the company store, which overpriced everything. *sigh* It's not good to be a Canadian Turker tbh.

    I'm not going to say something like that was going on for a very long time and had really great results. I'm also not going to say maybe we should start again.
