There's lots of projects at the moment that are qualifying people and then saying oh no work - which is really annoying esp if you do a test.

Lots of projects that have very little work as well.

I’ve just looked and it’s an email to say that my account has been activated and to register for Payoneer. So I haven’t qualified have I yet?

No. Basically everyone gets paid through payoneer and then transfers to PayPal. So another waiting game I am afraid to get a project.

When I go to All Projects it say's "Projects I'm qualified for" and then it's got one project which is "Firth". And it says "Work this" - does that mean I can do it? Bit confused.

Firth is what appen call a micro project (theres lots of them) Basically just one off projects. I did this one last week and then got sent an email no more females needed. What appen normally does is send you emails to access the work platform with what the task is on - you then get given access codes.

So even through the work this button is a good thing as it means you have been accepted on to the project you then need to normally wait for further instructions. I tend to click on the work this projects every now and again to see if they have updates or information on where to go next.

They don't tend to give you a lot of information normally you just have to figure it out as you go along. The social tab in appen normally has lots of people asking the same thing.

Guys is there anything I can do to get accepted for a project? My account is activated now so I really want to get on one. Should I do the Firth one?

With the firth one its done on a separate work system. Have you got the email to download the app and login in details?

Just make sure you completed any tests that the send you to do. Other than that its a waiting game. Some of the tests are quite tricky as well.

Need some idea on what I can do to replace project nile, I know you're only on it for a year and that's nearly up, and despite qualifying for 17 other projects on appen I've never gotten any work for them.

It's a waiting game I am afraid. Some months you seem to get lots of work others nothing. Make sure you do any qualifications keep checking back on the site and just wait. I got accepted on to one project then they told me that it wasn't starting till next year.

Yeah I know, I qualified for nile around 8 months before I was accepted to work it. This is why I'm trying to find something that brings in around the same £ to replace it as I know I may never get accepted to another appen project or if I do it may be in 9 months.

You could try lion bridge - but ive not had any luck with them as they found out I worked for appen. Im waiting on crisp thinking but that's a long wait. Also neevo - some people make lots of money through that - but I dont like the fact that if your work doesn't pass quality checks you dont get paid.

crisp thinking
Yeah same thing happened to me with lion bridge, soon as they found out I worked for appen. I am a member of neevo, but like yourself I don't like that you can do the work then not get paid for it if they decide it's not up to scratch. Will check crisp thinking, thank you.

Anyone been invited to take the exam for project Knox?

There're no guidelines, the email says there're no guidelines, so you're supposed to just guess the answers based on the absolute zero you know about the project.

Ive not taken the exam yet - hopefully today. It looks like to me that you just select the most relevant option form the multiple choice questions - I. think the questions are more aimed at how you think rather than any study material they provide - if you don't think the way they want you to then they will go with some one else. Only advice I can give is to put the question into google and see what comes up. Look for the best answer.
