OK ... this is fun! One is in Egypt, one is a river in Turkey, one is a town in California and the other is in North Carolina ...
Is that as generic as you meant?! :cool:
lol

you'd be good in the secret service!

If Yukon is there go for that

If Nile is there go for that ;)

in that order

Ha ha ... yes, perhaps I should look for secret agent jobs!
Great, I will go for Egypt - as the other one you have suggested isn't even on my list! :)

Should I just stick with trying to Qualify for the one project rather than multiples?

I THINK from memory Nile is just a few hours a week work though others on here who have done it more recently can confirm @domravioli any ideas?

I logged in today to submit my hours and noticed that there are 5 jobs on there to 'qualify' for. I've submitted my interest for all 5 as more often than not nothing happens at all but I live in hope!

Anyone else had any new ones pop up?

I did pass the second chance test. Need to wait now until get email from manager. How long usually does it take? And how to know/find the project name?

So when my Nile contract ended in October, I can no longer log onto the portal thing, so can’t see if there’s anything there to qualify for. I’ve emailed them but get the standard “there’s nothing we can do right now” email. Then two days later get the “how do you rate your support “ email. However, I can’t rate it as the sodding link doesn’t work as I can’t log on anymore. So frustrating. I’m fed up with Appen.

That is frustrating. My £600+ a month with them has fallen dramatically over the last few months and is about to drop even further to less than £50 a month. Really hoping something else comes up.

I did hear from them about a web search evaluation type thing but it requires 15 - 20 hours of unpaid commitment just to take a qualification test... not going to happen I'm afraid.

Me too. Only took 10 mins though and sometimes these things lead onto more work. Fingers crossed :)

Got offered a recording task today which initially seemed decent - 288 recordings using their mobile app for $12.

"Please provide a new way you would verbally communicate with a conversational bot, in the context of wanting to navigate a web browser towards general image content destinations."

What it didn't say in the description, that only becomes apparent once you start the task in the app, is that each recording you make, you then have to write a transcription of.

For $12.

Rubbish.

I got this too. I completed the recordings but the instructions only appeared once I had a few tasks left, it said you have to record the first XX in a quiet environment, then the rest in a noisy environment. I raised a support ticket with them but haven't heard anything back yet.

Yikes, the sad thing is they will no doubt fill the quota of work that needs doing as people will do all that for the sad some of £9!!

Did you do all the transcriptions too? How long did it take you?

New job to apply for just popped up on my home page.

'Truckee' which I know some of you have done in the past.

I filled out the questionnaire and submitted my answers and it just disappeared. Didn't go into my 'active processes' like usual with the "under review" status. It just went.

Anyone know if this is normal?

Yes this happens a lot where projects appear and then disappear without trace. Something to do with them filling all the vacancies for the area you live in. Really frustrating!!
