    That shouldn't happen. There's no settings in OW itself that would cause that. The only thing I can think of is that you're somehow clearing your cookies every time you close the window. That might be a chrome setting? I'm not sure. Are you in incognito mode or anything like that?

    I do have to clear cookies from time to time. My son also uses my computer, but I also use it for work so I clear cookies and websites so he doesn't accidentally pull up my work stuff. Turkmaster used to save the watches in it's own separate database that clearing cookies did not affect. I guess I assumed OW did something similar. But it apparently does not?

    It uses localStorage so clearing cookies will delete everything it saves.

    So with www pandas being gimped right now for whatever reason it might be a good idea to move overwatch over to www. I know that worker is faster ect but it might be better if that was possible for right now... until the meta of mturk changes again.

    I looked at the code and it looks like a decent amount of stuff would need to be changed to get it working on www but you prob would know better seeing as it is your baby. For now I'll just slow down overwatch a bunch and move hit finder beta (userscript version) over to www I guess.

    It would be a pretty big re-write, and based on how some of our scripters have been treated lately, I'm not holding my breath.

    For the muggles in the house, please expand on what you mean by "gimped."

    In the past I though WWW was 500? Msec ahead of Worker, so I had PC set up to use WWW.

    Much more recently I've seen claims that j-los work on Worker but not on WWW, and in fact this morning I switched PC over after getting shut out recently, and had a lot more success. But I couldn't swear that was the reason it happened, and if there's "science" here, I'd like to understand it instead of one-offs or speculation.

    I haven't been active here the last 3 days, so sorry if I missed a big discussion.

    For some reason www pandas aren't catching them like they used to. If the HIT was available, it would catch, but www only seems to catch if it's available on the MTurk platform view. So, like when you used to be able to catch it even if the site showed there were no hits, it isn't doing that anymore pretty much except for worker.

    Hey everybody, sorry for not being around much lately.
    WWW is a sinking ship imo and i just don't want to spend the time parsing through the html return data for something that isn't going to be very useful in the future, probably near future. If someone wanted to put in the work, and host a forked OW somewhere I'd be cool with that, but as far as i'm concerned, it wouldn't be worth the effort.

    Uh I just noticed that overwatch stopped saving my watchers after a refresh.... I'm going to go ahead and upgrade from that old pastebin version to the current gf and hope that stops being an issue lol
