I'm VERY our of touch with Appen.

Are these projects you guys doing all long term ones? And if so how much do they bring in a month generally?
I have two right now - Rattle and Peppermint. Rattle is very long term (been running since 2016 I think) but it's hard to keep up with their quality standards in my opinion. 10 hours/week with room to increase it all the way to 35.

Peppermint is new but Appen is saying long term which I've never seen them do before. Minimum 10 hours/week, no maximum.

If Nile's what I think it is, 5-7 hours/week and also long term. No opportunities for extra hours on that one.

All of them are $14/hr rather than per task.

Just do your best. I did one project few years ago, I did it 9 months and almost every month I get an email with how bad I am :D Now I do Dorian with disagreement rate max 15%, but doesnt matter how many times I read guidelines or do my best - always have around 35% and I on this project 6months already. everyday I try to do my best but when check yesterday results :( a,lways very sad 2 minutes.
Thanks for that, at least I know I'm not the only one, I'm just finding them hard to please at the moment. Will keep re-reading the guide rules and see how it goes. I do think that in with the criticisms it would be nice if they could mention the good ratings, would be a bit more encouraging.

I have been told that Appen is for up to a year. Not certain on exact pay rates, I'm presuming they pay monthly, and I haven't been doing it for a month yet.

Yes it's rating facebook ads. I found it fairly easy but the audits on my work are putting me off a bit.
So I haven't been on the project for probably a couple of years so I don't know if it's changed massively but when I was on it there were a few rating scales and then the comments. The comments part was the main issue people were flagged for in audits. I didn't have a negative audit the whole time and I was on it for spot on the year mark. I had a format for my comments that I just edited for each one that was something like 'I found this ad for ____ to be ____ because _____.' I've forgotten what the required parts are for the comments but it definitely tells you and I'd just plug in the parts for each comment to make sure I wasn't missing anything. The extreme ends of the scale were exactly that - extreme. Unless you had an extreme reaction to it it would fall somewhere in the middle. I'm not sure if that's helpful to you or if it's changed too much to be useful.

I have been told that Appen is for up to a year. Not certain on exact pay rates, I'm presuming they pay monthly, and I haven't been doing it for a month yet.
Up to a year for your project in particular. Used to be $14/hr. Payment is the 14th of the following month if I remember right.

Im on the tigris project (been on this one since February - so I am lucky to be still on it). This is maximum 7 hours a week. You have to rate 20 ads but recently its been a bit hit and miss if you get 20 - you then have to reduce the minutes you do so you lose some pay. I get around £300 per week per month on this. This sounds a bit similar to nile?

Ive also done some of the audio recordings on and off. But not spent to much time on them. One off tasks. As well as noyo one off surveys.

Ive also done Carmel - which was a lot easier than the audio ones but similar.

Nile and Tigris are the same project for two companies owned by the same people. I'll let you figure that one out for yourself. :p Just for future reference so they don't waste your time like they did mine, you can't work on both projects. Even if you finish one, you can't do the other one after. They let me go through the qualification process and only told me after the fact.

I'm on Ramsey but the work is pretty sparse at the minute... Hoping it picks up this month since it's nice and straightforward.

Dorian (video) - minimum 5 hours/week (1per day) but you can get extra
Inari (instagram) - max 3 hours per day/5-7 days per week (for me around 1-2 hours per day)
+now will be Peppermint
During November I expect to earn not less than 22 hours of dorian and 30 of inari =~£500 + something from peppermint.

So I’ve had problems with NILE project and I’ve contacted them a few times to tell them this, so anyways I get an email saying I’ve been permanently banned from the project! I mean how rude.
I’ve got loads of projects waiting to start or in-process. I really don’t get how it works sometimes. Anyone on Bane? I got an email at like 11pm the. When I checked it had finished.

Pretty standard for them unfortunately, they remove people from projects at the drop of a hat often without any explanation.

I'm on Bane, had about 2 hours random work a couple of weeks ago but nothing since.

On Rattle I've been asked to cross qualify twice now. I've only been on the project two weeks! 70 pages of guidelines the first time, 90 this time. And that's on top of the 70 from the initial qualification. I've got a feeling I'm going to do all of this and get booted because I'm struggling with their guidelines so far. I can pass qualification but the minute they want me to apply it to Britain, it's awful.

Took me all morning to send an email to a potential client because I was nervous about the amount of money I was asking for. Pretty sure this never happens to men.
