How long did it take you to hear back? I applied 3 months ago and still waiting

It does take a while to hear back about projects. Thats even if you do hear back before they are full. I did a qualification test for one and passed and today found out it was full.

Really frustrated with Appen now. Been ready and willing to do work for them and been accepted but the first project I was asked to work on has been a total disaster. Followed all the instructions, installed the app on my phone, kept getting emails asking me to basically do some work, but not once since being accepted have I been able to access the programme, keep being told 'cannot connect to Appen server, try again later'. Have tried uninstalling it and installing it again, no joy, have had numerous emails to and from Appen, and even sent screen shots of the problem I am having. This is the last day for the Fletcher project and I have not earned a single penny, very disheartening. I am being appraised for a couple of other projects with them but can't see that happening now. Sorry guys for the rant, must look into some other ways to earn money online!

It is really annoying. Im on one project but every so often there is technical faults.

Hi guys.
I've just been accepted onto Pecwan - EQ. I was wondering if anyone here is on it? I see in the guidelines it mentions about having to provide reasons for why you cant decide on a rating, but i'm unsure as to if we have to provide reasons for all ratings, or if it is just for the cant decide one?

Back when I used to work on Yukon doing web Search Evaluator work I think we had to provide reasons for all ratings but that was task specific. So you would do it for say, images but not for search cards etc.

Thanks Jon. the only reference that i can see in the training regarding writing reasons down is the 'cant decide' option. I dont want to miss doing something, but obviously if i dont need to do them for all, then i can achieve a much higher throughput :)

Help! I am really confused. I have had a notice from Appen that I have qualified for project Nyasa, and that it is a one time only survey, however they don't appear to have sent me the link to the said survey, which means I am unable to work the job that they have given me. Anyone else have a problem or am I missing something?

Also I qualified for a project called Fletcher, and was then informed that they are now not taking anyone with English accents, so I don't quite see how I qualified for that!

On both of these I have queried more than once and have had no response, so anyone else got any bright ideas?

It's frustrating as it's telling me I can earn money with one hand and then taking it away with the other, and not getting any support either. Is this normal for them?

Thanks

I sometimes have the same things happen to me - what I tended to do was wait and sometimes link for surveys would appear on the project page. Sometimes they never appeared or went to closed as they had enough people. Sorry I can't be much help.

Appen bringing the Ops!

Hi,

Just want to share this great opportunity to you. We have recently moved to a new system called Appen Connect. Appen is currently conducting a study to understand how we can improve the quality of day-to-day interactions with home smart speakers, such as Amazon Echo and Google Home. As part of these efforts, we are currently looking for participants to share the transcripts of their voice commands to this type of home smart speakers.

We are looking for people who regularly use voice assistants through their home smart speakers. Participants of this study are required to be located in the following countries and use the corresponding language for their smart speaker:

United States - English
United Kingdom - English
Germany - German
India - English
Japan - Japanese

This will be an express micropayment project, where PM will submit custom payments.

We look forward to receiving your help on the project.

Oooh I have just had this email. Whilst currently plodding through the Accented English Project, again. Apparently I can do it up to 4 times for $200 or until I fall asleep from boredom!

Had an email this morning inviting me to apply for Appen Connect - apparently I was referred by one of their project managers, which is a bit strange as I usually abort projects due to the unacceptable pay!

Anyway, I have been accepted for Sankuru - does anyone do this? It appears to be another very low-paid task, but I am hoping that you can bomb through it and earn an acceptable hourly rate?

I had this same email - there's a quick test when you log in and I got accepted immediately after doing it

It seems to be using a third party company called Figure8 who the work will come through (it loads into your Appen dashboard still)

No work has appeared yet though
