Hi, newbie here

I’ve signed up to Leapforce and two projects came up for me to qualify for last night, Nile and Truckee (sorry can’t remember the spelling). Anyway did the questionnaire bits but Nile has disappeared off my dashboard overnight so does this mean I didn’t meet criteria? The other one is still there and says under review.

Hi @JenC10 same has happened with me in the past. I think it means that the particular project you may meet the criteria for is not currently available for your location (I think they use a cross section of people/localities etc). Fingers crossed one of them will come through and then other projects may open up as and when. Hope that might help..

Thanks @Lizziew24, I just thought it was weird disappearing so quickly. Having seen a couple of threads now though they seem to have a frustrating process that they follow. Hopefully I get started on a project soon.

It can take a while. I was waiting on Nile but it vanished. Then Yellowstone popped up, then Truckee. Got accepted onto Truckee today which I think is a fairly new project. Good luck though. Hope you hear something soon!

I'm a little confused. I applied to Leapforce but received the acceptance e-mail from Appen as they have now taken over Leapforce. So I'm confused why Leapforce still have separate projects? Does anyone know if they're still run s two different companies? And could I still get accepted to Leapforce?

They have completely different clients

Just applied and got the generic email which makes you feel very confused about the status of your application, good think that I read the posts here otherwise most probably would have felt that my application went wrong. Hope is not a long wait.

@Jon im certain the answer is here somewhere but can’t quite find it, but is it possible to work on Leapforce (Truckee, which is Nile but Instagram) and Lionbridge at same time (which is Apple maps I believe). I seem to think you know the answer to this!!
Different clients so it 'should' be OK

Are you on Truckee? I'd really like to get on that but I have a pending Yukon exam (delayed until Jan 1st) but I'd actually prefer to just do Nile and Truckee... Perfect amount of extra work/income for me...

How did you get invited?

@luckyj142 i first got invited to do Nile but that disappeared overnight to be replaced by Yukon. Did Yukon exam and failed part 2, was told I could resit but didn’t hear back, then that disappeared to be replaced by Yellowstone. No idea what that is but have since been told it’s inactive. Then Truckee appeared. Took about a week to get set up. I know you can’t do Truckee and Nile at the same time, which is a shame as that would do me too!!
