Hi all, I got invited to join the Saldua project. Only thing is that it's been so long since I signed up that I cant remember which is which - I registering interest for 3 but they all had differing time commitments. Thanks for the help!
It's a nice easy one between 1 & 5 hrs per week. Social media ad rating.

This Did make me laugh since most of us on here helped Appen with the OK GOOGLE work a few years back and now it seems the public are HORRIFIED that we heard the recordings of their voice

Was anyone else on the UCI/ Zeya project. Have been on it since October but was told today I am no longer needed after Sunday :-(

Was a shame as it was a good earner.

Hope we get paid for April. I have no way of checking my hours are right now that they moved platform.

Hopefully something else will come up soon.

You will still get paid for the hours you've done. I've had a project end before and didn't have a problem with payment.

When you say you can't check your hours do you mean for last month or this month? You should just be able to use user metrics either way. :)

I can use the metrics. They juat no longer upload them into appen global as they moved over to leapforce platform on april 1.
Not sure why as that's a mess

I will continue to work until Sunday and see what else pops up. Hopefully something soon. Though this project came out of the blue.

I get invitation, but didnt pass test. Not sure if I am going to retake it, did not understand rules :/ Did you pass?
I decided not to go for it in the end. The qualification process was too much

Is this the one where it skips over verifying the email entirely or the one where the email doesn't show up? If it's the latter, my email showed up a while later. Not sure how to solve the one that skips verifying. I've been applying for everything in sight so hopefully something comes up.

Has anyone actually passed Java?

Yep, got another email from Appen asking me to finish my recordings. They've kindly extended the deadline! There's still time! I'm not sure I'd be willing to do it even if they doubled the payment. I really didn't like the task.

If only we could unsubscribe from certain emails - no matter how many I get, I will not be completing the voice recording tasks (and have already told that what I think of the remuneration) and do not have a Facebook account.

(Sorry for the longish post but) I've been looking at this thread and now I'm worried. I've been waiting for months to get onto one of Leapforce/Appen's projects and the other day, I happened to go onto the site and saw Project Fletcher. I applied and within minutes had been accepted (alert) without any sort of exam/test requirement. Then yesterday, I got a 'start now' type email with instructions to download the Appen Mobile Recorder app and do 800+ speech collection things for $50 by 1 May. They also claim that it should only take about 3 hours (I've never done this before so I don't know if that's even vaguely accurate or not).

Oddly, now when I log-in to my account with them, or follow the link in the email for guidance notes, I can't get into the projects page or make the link work on my 'active process' type bit of the page. I've tried on 2 of my devices, 2 of my husband's, 2 different browsers and cleared my cache. I've also emailed them twice (as it advises me to do in the email) but haven't had a reply.

So, my question is, if I upload all this via the app, will I be wasting my time re payment? Has anyone else been having trouble with their web-page or have problems getting anyone to answer emails at all please?

Hey @Jute

Hope you are well.


The voice recording project you've signed up to doesn't require any sort of exam or test, you just get straight on with it. I've not done this one myself but in the past when I've done similar ones you just went to a site on your mobile device and then ploughed through the phrases.
