Hi there, I have received an email saying I have been invited to the Carmel EN-UK Collection task with details about what the task entails but no information on how to access it ... did you have a similar thing?


Yes I had to wait till the tasks opened - I got sent an email when they were opened but I remember some tasks closed early so you will have to be quick - basically it was a bit like the speech one - but a lot quicker as all I needed to do was type different answers. I got paid $35 which took around 2 1/2 hours to do.

I've been working for Appen since February on the same project & really happy with it. Takes less than an hour a day. Just going through the qualification process for another project so fingers crossed on that.
It's just a waiting game I'm afraid

Ah ... OK .. I got the email to say I was "in" and logged into the Appen portal straight away - however the status of the task is still "In Progress" and not "Work This"? I have sent a reply to their email - but as yet haven't had any response ... I will wait and see. Sounds easier than the Fletcher task though :)

Good luck! I was in the same situation a month ago until eventually they emailed again to say that the task was now full. I really don't understand how they work! lol

Ive completed one Noyo project and was paid $5
I've done my first survey on it - what happens now? It says in the guidelines that I don't need to do anything to be paid for (I'm already set up on Payoneer etc) but I keep getting emails asking me to do the survey?

The payment appeared on my invoice - both for Noyo and Carmel. I've already got an invoice set up as draft due to the other projects I'm working on. One day the payments just appeared. I did see the messages through not to submit your invoice before the 4th of June I think if they were not showing on the invoice.

Has anyone received an email about the new UK English voice rating project or worked on a similar project before? I am obviously suspicious about the 2.7 hours quoted for the task - the rate of pay is borderline acceptable, but it wouldn't be worth doing if it were to take any longer.

Yeah I got that email today and the same thing I thought was “I bet it takes longer!”

I received an email about the voice rating task which said register your interest but we haven't decided on the pay yet. My first thought was they were waiting to see if they had enough interest so they could offer a lower fee. I also though they were probably underestimating the time again. I decided not to bother with it. It's sad but I just don't have much faith in Appen anymore.

Appen are testing my patience at the moment. I've worked for them for the majority of the last few years on one project or another. In the last month they've asked me to qualify for two projects. The first, I studied the guidelines all weekend, passed the exam and was told to wait on the next email for my login information but the next email was to tell me there'd been a mistake and I wasn't actually eligible for the project anyway. I'd spent all that time qualifying for a project I wasn't actually eligible for.

Yesterday I was asked to qualify for another project. Printed off the guidelines and thankfully decided to delay working through them until today. Received an email during the night to tell me they didn't actually need anybody else on the project and 'thanking me for my time'.

Those issues and the unceremonious booting you get with no notice have really put me off Appen when it used to be the majority of my income.

They've now emailed to say that they've created the invoice for me and all is good.

I did this task and I'm glad to say it didn't take anywhere near the estimated time. Was really straightforward too. Pleasantly surprised!

Has anyone else received an email regarding a project with a message saying "If you have not done so previously, please take the qualification test for this project linked on your Projects page."

I have opened my Projects page but cannot see where to go for the qualification test ... the project is there but it's just the usual View Progress pop up message that appears...?

I got that email too. I was wondering if that was going to happen. They seemed pretty desperate to get people to do it. I still don't think it's worth my time because I did hate the task.
