I have been doing Forester for about a week, it's transcription work. I like many of you apply for everything I can on Appen and usually don't hear back but this little gem dropped into my inbox when i needed it the most. I have been managing to hit target easily and also have now been asked to move to QA which should hopefully be quicker and allow me to earn more.

So keep applying for projects folks, you never know when you'll get selected....

I think the ratings one most definitely would but I’m not entirely sure tbh.
I'm guessing the Scottish reason is why you have suddenly been onboarded with this task

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?

They prefer Nile to be done on mobile, desktop is supposed to be a last resort when the mobile tool is being particularly useless.
At the moment it is a problem and the message I get is the same that others are getting.

Yep, it’s a pita today. Managed three ads and n mobile since 12pm, desktop tool isn’t working either.

I do enjoy working from Appen but this issue has been happening for months and they have done absolutely nothing about it.

Does anyone have an email contact for Appen? it says my account is "not yet active". I registered a while ago but didn't complete the paperwork part, as it looked too complicated.

If you log on, there is an envelope symbol at the top of the page in the middle and you can click on that.

I couldn't get going with Forester and now I am booted. My score was low and I kept getting batches of rework that I just couldn't see any errors in. I'm sort of embarrassed because I have an English degree and worked in publishing for a few years but I just couldn't give them what they were looking for. Such a shame because there's loads of work in my locality on that project and it was much better paid that most online transcription mills.

I wouldn't worry about it. I find some of the projects difficult as you really need to be on the same wave length as them. Keep going and different projects will turn up. I think I gave up on the same one.

I'm applying for nile and inari on appen and for both I have to fill out a part saying company currently working as SEE. Can you only be recruited for these projects if your currently working as an evaluator?

From memory Nile first came out while you would be doing Yukon (which was the wse project) so that does sort of make sense though I didn’t know it applied now

No, they are hiring for those roles as standalones at the moment. But,

If you haven't worked for Appen or Lionbridge before I wouldn't appy for one of those roles as a first position anyway.

Those roles last a year at the most, are 7 hours a week each only, and doing them first could stop you getting better paid, long-term jobs with those companies.

If you're a WSE virgin I would apply for Lionbridge first, they have a few roles (not the socal media one) that they are hiring for, but they will not hire you if you have worked for another company.

After that go for apply for a WSE role at Appen. You can add one of the social media jobs once you've been hired.
Probably more info than you wanted, but there you go :D
