right so not worth it then lol

I got about 16 hours of work last month. There is no qualification to take and tasks are fairly easy - but yet to see any this month. I think as long as they have sorted out the invoices and how long they want you to spend on each task should be fairly straight forward.

The bane one is getting to be a joke...new tasks today...but you have two minutes to do two tasks... basically one saying if a search is relevant and then completing a search and going onto the top five webpages cutting and pasting the urls... most of the time it cuts out..

And should you rate anything as inappropriate or vague, you get booted.

Was supposed to start Bane today, but FigureEight seems to be down for me. Sounds like it's less than fun anyway!

This will be the third consecutive Appen project I can't work due to technical issues (seemingly) their end. Gutting, as I'm on approximately half my usual earnings right now...as is everyone.

I just had had another email about the bane job, but after originally having an account with F8 it won't let me log in, and when I try to register again, it just says "invalid business email" whatever that is meant to mean. So I think it's safe to say I won't be doing any of this job.

I wouldn't bother anyway - they still have massive problems with the whole project. Its annoying through when you get accepted but you cant work on it.

Yeah it is annoying a bit with whole login thing, nothing ever seems to run smoothly with these jobs, but if it's as bad as you say then that makes me feel better as I won't be missing anything.

Still waiting for the appen tool (formerly Figure Eight) to authorise my password.

Super glad I got up at 6am to work before the kids start school work on Forester to find someone has QA'd my work incorrectly leading to a batch of unpaid rework. I have attempted it and would change nothing about it as it was correct in the first place. I refuse to do the rework as there's nothing wrong with it and have sent an email informing them of this. They've removed me from the QA team as apparently my score has dropped. So this may be the end of the road for me with this task. They had been looking to take on more people so perhaps they are just vying to cull people. Grr I'm really annoyed!

Is it usual that you just get removed from things with no prior warning?

Yup. I got removed from a project a couple of years ago because apparently I'd "spotted a process error and the client doesn't like it". Shame they didn't want their project to be either correct or useful, but, you know, just ditch the freelancer and be done with it...

since I’ve disputed it I have had an email back saying they will remove that rework (unpaid) and replace it with other rework tomorrow. I think they’ll be struggling to find anything that needs a rework. But let’s see what tomorrow brings! I guess they can just ditch people like this as there’s people queuing up to take my place.

It's always worth disputing it just to be (the right kind of) difficult. Especially if you know you're right.

I have just had a link to work on Bane. I had a quick look and it looked like it could take a while to do 20. Do you have to have it done in the hour or is it just that you can only bill for the hour? I don't mind going a bit over the hour until I get used to it but don't want to do it until I get to say 17 and then have it cut off and not get paid.

If you take more than 3 minutes per task you're timed out. I say three minutes but I've got a timer running for 2:40 which alerts me, so I know I've got 20 seconds left, I've hit enter before the 2:40 and twice been timed out.

So now I'm basically putting anything in and will no doubt get booted for poor quality. But not sure what else they expect when you're giving people 2 minutes. You don't get quality with those time constraints.
