Communication humour continues. Received late last night an email asking B888 project workers to participate in a qualification quiz for the upcoming month. The work on this project is ad hoc and last few months non-existent. Decided to sleep on it and first thing this morning got an email saying the quiz has now closed????
That project has been a Pain from the start, with blunt messages, removal of a timer to help you out etc. I was going to do it today, assume it was pulled as it was wrong

Yep not giving us a timer was incredibly helpful, I wonder who they thought would appreciate working blind. I think I lost about 10% of the work to forgetting to press my phone timer and hence submitting too late.

apply for everything and hope you get something, its a lottery on times. Apply as soon as you see them come up too and act fast on any qualification exam as places often fill fast

Be prepared to be messed about a lot as well

Click on the All Projects tab and they'll be a pages-long list for you to browse through.

Apply for everything you think you can do but do check the requirements no point in applying for a project that needs a Mac system or a linguistics qualification.

Anyone had any surveys to do this week? Don't think I've had any since Monday.

Brilliant. I have only been doing it today. The instructions are bonkers(as per). So I am tracking my time with a timer. It says RPH has to be 60 I think... I am racking up so much more than that. What am I doing wrong?

You are not supposed to mention project names or the tools and client. It's in your NDA that you signed. Be careful it's best to be generic in what you say.

The timings are a bit generous, but you need to be inline with what they expect or you could be removed, slow down.

New Appen project - 20/30 hours a week commitment. Just wondering if this is the same as my current Lionbridge SME job, - my year is up in May but let's say my some HUGE quirk of fate I get accepted for this one, will they also realise about my Lionbridge job
PROJECT OVERVIEW:

Sutherland consists of various tasks focusing on improving the accuracy of our client’s tooling. Consultants will be selecting entities from various document types.

Web Search evaluators work 4-6 hours a day (Saturday through Friday) depending on current project opening opportunity. Evaluators commit to be available to complete a minimum of 20 production hours each week when data is available.
I've just finished my year with Lionbridge & have applied for the Search Evaluator job, through to the next part of the assessment, really hope i get on it as I'm missing my SME money. Fingers crossed for both of us!

Can anyone please help me....
Do Appen let you know if your work was good enough or not? I'm new to Appen and did my first work for them almost a week ago. It was Harpeth, the speech recording project. However, I have not heard anything since I submitted it. No email or anything when I log on to Appen. I'm worried my work wasn't good enough. What normally happens next? Thank you
Ive done this one and so has @Jute We were both convinced we had done it wrong - Jute got a confirmation next day that it had been accepted. I never got the email so I messaged them, got a reply about a week later saying it has been successfully reviewed.
Ive only just started to bother with Appen with my Lionbridge project ending soon but already its obvious that you have to make a note of what you've done, which ones are auto generated payments, which are submitted invoices etc.

You might want to edit your post!

They do scan the internet and I know people have been caught in the past.
I don't get this. If someone is posting on here with a pseudonym. How could they possibly identify that person as someone on one of their projects? On my username here, they wouldn't have a clue who I was.

well in past on the green site some people used the same nickname or part of email address etc and Butler hill as they were then found them and terminated their contracts.

Not only that- you are breaking the NDA talking about project names and sites used, so you are opening yourself up to a can of worms. It's best to talk about everything generic, you don't know how many people are in each market for any project- for all we know the UK is say 10! so not too hard to track someone-( its prob way higher than that), I am just saying don't break the NDA you signed or be prepared for the consequences if you do.

Also I don't think TMS wants the wrath of Appen on his back - though that's very unlikely.
