anyone else getting emails about one off voice recording tasks?
Yeah did the test which actually was only 3 questions with a bit of a guess for one of them. Failed it, allowed to take it again and then I got an email saying to take an exam. Clicked the link and it took me to the projects available and the project wasn't there. Appen really don't seem to know their arse from their elbow.

After the TMS email this week, I signed up for Appen and now accepted to a project. Need to understand how this works! Hopefully i can earn some to add my savings!

I have applied several projects. Hopefully, that's ok. I'm baffled though as I failed a transcribe project in my native language. I tried twice thinking the first one would be due to using the English keyboard but still the same result. Very odd.

Same here, got it wrong first time, one of them doesn't give the answer in the instructions, so I'm not sure how they think we're meant to know it. Tried it again, but when I clicked submit it took me back to the main projects page again, so yeah bit of a waste of time really. Good one Appen :rolleyes:

Got invited to take the test for the one off recording task too. Says on the pag' to answer based on the instructions given, only as with others I've not been given any instructions. And the project page just take me to the quiz.

I got an email to say I passed it the second time but when I click on the link it's not even there in the projects page.

Can I ask where you found the instructions? I can’t for the life of me find them and they’ve sent me two emails asking me to take the qualifying tests. Have of course ignored my email asking how when I can’t see the instructions.

I just meant the details in the actual job itself, where they tell you what the project is about. The test is only 3 questions, 2 of these questions are answered in the project details, so no maybe I worded it wrong by saying instructions. All you do is look at the job and read what it's about.

I started this one today but it was so tedious and did not enjoy it. Not sure if I am going to continue with it. How are you finding it?

I'm still going but I hate it.

I've missed the min days twice so expecting to be booted soon.

Did you carry on?

I have just started this as the first job I have done for them. The ads are not appearing. There is the chance to rate but I have had to log on and off quite a few times. I have given up after 5 ads as I worry I am messing up the system by getting new batches generated..

More questions regarding Appen. If there is no way to get to the website - no link or the link showing 404 error among others, do you just put that in the comments or are we supposed to Google it? Thanks

I’ve signed up and it says I need to do a practice one to start with, I’ve applied for 2 and it just says “there’s nothing for you to do at the moment” - is this normal?? How am I meant to qualify if there’s nothing for me to do?

That's just how nile works, if you looked in the chat you'd see everyone has the same issues. You just get new batches until you've done 30.

When it works its great but there are days when you get one add then connection error for an hour, then one ad then connection error for an hour, log out, log back in, delete app and re-download etc etc etc, all the things they advise you to do when you'e getting connection error, none of which actually work, so there are days you can start rating in the morning and give up at midnight after only doing three ads.

They prefer Nile to be done on mobile, desktop is supposed to be a last resort when the mobile tool is being particularly useless.
