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 took it this morning - they give you two attempts - but failed. The instructions say that you choose the most precise one - but I think its a bit vague.

Same here. I had already googled etc and put the answers I felt best fit. Also failed.

I don't really understand how they expect anyone to pass without guidelines

it was all really confusing as they said pick the most precise one yet I felt like the ones in more detail were more clearer... and the marshmallow one threw me.

I passed a couple of days ago and have finished the registration process so just waiting on work becoming available which should hopefully be in the next few days.

I do agree that some of the questions were a bit ambiguous. I failed the first time so the 2nd time round I changed the answers for the 2 questions I was unsure of (2 possible answers I deemed to be appropriate) and passed.

I don’t know what I’m doing wrong with Appen. Can’t seem to get any work. I’ve applied for loads.

Are you still working Lionbridge? Sometimes they cotton on that you are working on that site and they don't allow you to work both (I got rejected by Lionbridge for this - they found out)

Hmmmn, ok, thanks. Will put me off doing bits and pieces for Appen moving forward since I'll lose so much of it. At least I know now I guess lol.

The money goes from payoneer to my PayPal account. I think they have changed the fees now - theres not a lot of information on it through.

I haven't started work with appen yet (applied for loads, been accepted on 2 but haven't worked or been paid yet), but when I set up my Payoneer account I looked at the fees section and according to that I should be charged 2% for them to convert $ to £ and those are the only fees that were mentioned. I didn't have a problem with that as Paypal charge the same for currency conversion anyway. If you do have to pay fees you should be able to claim them back on your tax return?

They've charged me $2 for account inactivity, I'm sure I saw a fee to receive money, a minimum withdrawal and the one to convert currency so I plan to close the account after I've had this payment. I don't earn enough to pay tax so won't get anything back there.

I wish Appen would send it straight to my bank account. I don't think you have a choice with Appen though, it's them or nothing.
