Just got an email from Appen too, saying they have now finished assigning people to the Blue Transcriber task so I have not been assigned this time. However, not being selected this time has no bearing on my chances of being assigned for future similar projects.

Yeah, right. Who says I WANT to apply again anyway - goes off into a corner of my cage to sulk!

You should have replied inviting them to do an exam and then just never reply!!:p

I got an email saying that the last remaining batches had been allocated and then it was done. I'm in the Northern group so if you're in a different group they might not have been as quick.

Oh maybe my email is coming today then. I am doing Northern so will see what happens once I complete this batch. I have quite enjoyed it too!

For WSE work?

I would assume the clients are still different.
I just got an email inviting me to be a social media assessor, so ads assessor I guess. This is the job I do for Leapforce but that’s max 7 hrs per week whereas this is max 20. It just tells me to log in to my dashboard and click interested and they will be in touch, but don’t want to get kicked off both!!

I just got an email as well from them, I had already applied for this role so not sure why they’ve sent an email as it’s still sitting on my dashboard as under review.

I got an email too, even though I applied for it ages ago and wasn't selected. Now it says its under review.

I emailed them last month when I got invited for this and told them I was working as a social media evaluator for Leapforce and asked if this was the same job and no one ever replied!

I've gone in for the linguist English role. Is that what you are doing Jon or is that something extra? I've never got any other work from them, so hopeful i may get something from this one?

I have had an email this week asking me to apply for the job of Social Media Evaluator (same one as last month) so may just apply and mention it again.

I had an email asking me to confirm that I have access to a windows machine in order to do crowdsourcing. I do nile for leapforce so assume it wouldn't clash if anything comes of it?

I do received the same email...... I don't know how to reply...... I do have a Windows Vista, but it is not really working due to old.......
So I just did not reply the email...

Appen before just ask for firefox to work.

Anyone else got an email today about a forthcoming English project with Appen?

Not sure whether to say I am interested as the pay is 10 AUD per hour, which I work out at around £5.65 per hour, so sounds abit low perhaps? especially if there are conversion fees on top to take into consideration.

Would appreciate any input from @Jon @Lizziew24 and others who have done Appen, thanks :)

Not had that one @Knopfler. I’ll let you know if I hear anything though. Does seem a bit low. It might be worth expressing your interest though. And then of course you may never hear back, in typical fashion!! :);)
