Thanks, might keep an eye out. Do you think it would make a difference to me working on Lionbridge. Are places ok with doing both?
As long as you are not doing WSE for both it should be fine :)

Hi, I'm looking at Leapforce. They ask for 1hr a day for 5 days in a week. Are they really strict on this, is there chance to add in vacation time etc?

I have reading through some of the "social" comments on Leapforce, and many people have been saying that Nile only lasts for 12-18 months and you're never allowed to partake again.

Is anyone able to confirm this? While it doesn't surprise me it is a bit of a bummer - and I have applied for other projects such as Yukon but it always appears to just stagnate and then eventually it reverts back to "qualify" again.

Thank you!

I've not worked for Leapforce for a while not but when I was working on project Yukon and Nile got offered alongside it I don't remember it having an end date of any kind.

Thanks for replying, Jon.

I am on another project at the moment (1 hour a week) but when signing up to that there was a definitive "this project will last 12 months" - to paraphrase - but nothing like that when reviewing the initial documents for Nile.

I will have to wait and see, but hopefully you're right!

Nile does have a limit - like you say I think its something like 18 months @David H although I got booted from it before that. There is another similar project that is similar to Nile and a few people have done both, but as far as I am aware Nile is a one time thing.

Appen have a similar project too , so that could be worth applying for.

I have just been taken off Nile after 18 months which I expected but am gutted all the same.
It is an hour a week, minimum 5 days a week which they are very strict on.

It's definitely a shame you cannot do it indefinitely because it's a great income boost!

Though, I said to my partner that it's just the nature of that kind of work and I just have to become adept at finding new projects. It's also a struggle because you don't necessarily become reliant on that income but you can become more generous with your spending.

Hi everyone,

Did any fellow Truckee workers get the boot from the project yesterday? I was on it for around 10 months and out of the blue last night, I received an email to say I was being terminated from the project. I really enjoyed doing the project and the little bit of extra money each month. They said to look out for more projects but to be honest, in the 10 months I was doing this task there was never anything else to apply for on my Leapforce page. Do you guys know of any projects coming up with Leapforce or is it down to being online at the right time and finding a suitable project on your Leapforce page?

@Lizziew24 and I were also booted off yesterday so sounds like they've had a big clear out. Very disappointing as such easy work for good pay. I'm on project yukon which I enjoy but availability or work is much more variable and its not as convenient as needs the laptop.

Yukon and truckee are only projects I've been invited to in near 3 years with leapforce but fingers crossed something else appears. Not sure if the appen takeover is good or bad news but we'll see....

I’d like to think something will turn up. Appen website says there are loads of jobs but nothing ever forthcoming!

Oh no, it's disappointing to get that termination email. Yeah I am also registered with Appen but I never receive any invites from them.

Yeah the Appen takeover is a strange thing. I thought our payments were going to be received via Paypal this month but my payment came through today as a direct bank transfer.

Fingers crossed we get invited onto other work soon.

No, I have been able to log on ok. Did you receive an email around 11.30pm with the new link? I was able to log on via that. I haven't submitted my September invoice yet but I'll be doing it now! Hope you get this sorted.

Truckee appeared for me two weeks ago, tried to qualify for it but still says “Being reviewed by Appen Team - IN PROGRESS’.

Again this was 2 weeks ago, any idea how long it takes for them to get back to you?

How do I know when new projects come up please. I cannot seem to find a projects tab on Appen Global? I recently joined via a link to do the phone call one, I know there are jobs on the website you cna apply for but cannot seem to see how to apply for those if I already have a Appen Global account. Am I missing something here?

Hopefully that is understandable, I am not 100% certain what I am trying to ask!
