    Richie Rich's Diary

    Wow! This is amazing but I can also see how it's very stressful too. Just take a deep breath, keep hydrated, eat regularly and keep going. And remember that you are doing a grand job and this is for your future. Once Christmas is over, it will get quieter and then you need to make sure you get...

    NorthernMoneySaver’s Earning Diary

    Those delayed Appen projects are very frustrating! No doubt work will show up at the most inconvenient moment or very late at night! Like you, I put my spare money into a shares ISA although I buy tracker funds rather than individual shares so glad to hear your shares are doing well.

    Question / Discussion Lionbridge Query

    This is not it then. As Jon mentioned, you have a three-part exam which you have a week to complete. The exam is quite tricky and lots of people fail. It might be worth getting back to them and checking what happened. It might just be a mistake and they sent you the wrong emails.

    Question / Discussion Lionbridge Query

    I do the evaluation role for another company and it is nothing like UHRS. I don't know why that happened to you.

    Question / Discussion Lionbridge Query

    UHRS is not the search engine evaluator job. That project is paid by the hour. UHRS is a crowd working micro-task platform.

    Question / Discussion Lionbridge Query

    Are you doing UHRS? I have access to do this via a different provider - teamai. I only go on it if I have nothing else to do as these days most tasks are poorly paid yet still have tedious guidelines to understand and quizzes to pass. From what I can gather from others on Lionbridge, they are...

    Richie Rich's Diary

    Agree. If you use images or clips on YouTube, you will often, even if the rest of content is your own, get the video taken down or the money from ads is given to the company that own the clips. Some don't mind as it drives new users/listeners/viewers/buyers to them and they see it as free...

    Richie Rich's Diary

    Well done. You are doing so well and should give yourself a pat on the back! I think often people are jealous when others start doing well for themselves and I am sorry that your parents have not been more supportive. I think you are right to remember that you are doing this for yourself. Keep...

    Coronavirus Discussion So.... The Coronavirus / COVID-19

    Plus it can be stored in a regular fridge so can be given by GPs without specialist storage or safety equipment. This means it really can be rolled out quickly. Well done Oxford.

    Coronavirus Discussion So.... The Coronavirus / COVID-19

    What are people's views on Christmas? I would love to have Christmas but do not think it's worth another month of lockdown. I'd rather wait and treat Valentines as if it is Christmas!

    Coronavirus Discussion So.... The Coronavirus / COVID-19

    Ultimately, doesn't matter which of these vaccines are first as it all depends on production capacity and who has the ability and possibly the 'rights' to get hold of the vaccine for their population. I really hope wealthier countries don't exclude poorer nations from this process. Fingers...

    Appen [OT] Appen Work Opportunities

    This is just a feeling and not based on any real knowledge but I suspect how much help you get totally depends on which member of staff reads the email. Sometimes my issue is resolved immediately and other times I get a response which shows they definitely didn't bother to read the details.

    Appen [OT] Appen Work Opportunities

    Welcome to the world of working with Appen! I am afraid this is not unusual. Many of us have been invited to do exams then can't get access. Support is the only way I know to contact them.

    Question / Discussion Anyone making money from Youtube?

    One other note of caution, having a YouTube channel also opens you up to having to deal with some not so pleasant people.

    Appen [OT] Appen Work Opportunities

    Don't take it personally. Their guidelines are ambiguous and open to interpretation. I've been invited to do the exams for a couple of their projects recently but decided to turn them down as not sure I could meet the minimum hours necessary as well the work requirements for current long term...
