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.

I got kicked off. - no more work due to rushing. Never mind its a tricky one is bane.

I've since asked them to take me off it rather then wait and get kicked off. Seems like it is too much rushing for the time they give.

yep - Its the only project where Im rushing to do the tasks in the hour. But the minute you rush you are off the project.

Hi everyone,
A quick question, I received a text through on Thursday about Bane Curation, they said that an email had been sent, however, I have still haven't received anything through. Perhaps a dumb question but how do I get onto the Bane curation?

Thank you.
Katy

Hi Katy

The bane project is very hit and miss and they will send you an email about once a month for work. You can always send a ticket to ask to send the email again.

You dont get a lot of work through this project through and they seem to change the guidelines frequently. See the above messages.

I registered with Appen last week - attempted one of the initial tasks which it said I needed to do before being able to move onto others. When I log on now, a week later, I cant get onto any other page apart from one which says

"Thank you for completing the required forms. Your documents have been received, and after we review them, we will finalize your registration.

A follow-up email will be sent if we notice any discrepancies in your paperwork."

At the top of the page there is 'All Projects' title which is clickable but the same page remains.
Im not sure what they mean by 'your documents have been received' and I havent received any emails from them

Is there an email address for contractors to message them? Theres just an international phone number on the Contact Us page

I had an email from Appen today, I don't normally get emails from them. Telling me about 2 projects, one called Meiss which is about sign language so I can't do that one as I don't know any. The other one was called Carr so I've applied for that one. Just wondering, because they've emailed me does that mean it's more likely I will get accepted now? Because all of the other ones I applied for when I first joined I still haven't heard anything about.

This is my screen at the minute...

I'm sure you don't mean to ask questions that involve a crystal ball but take it as a good thing that they have emailed! Appen are very random and take it for what it is. Sometimes they tell you you're on a project and then you never hear a thing back. Well that's my experience anyhow. I am on Carr too but haven't started yet as I'm struggling to get a moments peace with the kids. Plus the pay is pretty dire for 200 recordings.

Haha, I just wondered if getting an email from them (because this is the first time in months) is a sign that work might start coming through soon. What's the pay by the way? I didn't even look.

I was accepted onto Carr yet cant get on as there are no prompts at the moment. I have been told it was a temporary problem that has been fixed and I will be able to use it but that has not happened.

I did Carr last month - Im still waiting for it to show on my invoice. Fairly straight forward task. Im waiting for work on alum now which seems to be of the same kind of thing.

Which projects currently have the most work?

It varies project to project and how lucky you are to get the work. Most of the projects Im on at at the moment are on a first come first served basis and the work comes in batches. Which are hit or miss as to when the batches come through.

For me Im not really being invited on long term projects.

Im on bane - hit and miss as to when work is (Ive done about two hours this month which is not bad for this one)

Peppermint - some months I hear and others I dont. About an hour work a month if Im lucky.

Recurring matla queues - went really well last month - I got work every weekend and on average did about 12 hours per weekend. But this month they seem to be having a bit of an issue with queues yet to see it if improves.

Every so often I get invited to do some audio recordings - had one last month and one this month but they are random and no set project.

Ah right - how did you get onto Peppermint and Malta? There's no option for me to apply.

You just have to wait and see what projects get sent to you. Its luck of the draw and no way to apply for projects that you are not sent out to. I think peppermint is pretty much over. The Malta projects go by lots of different names.
