Jen, I'm back to bother you again. So I've did my recordings, I'm not on the page were you get the survey link. So it says step 1 install, step 2 build number, step 3 complete homework, stop 4 survey. They all seems to be screen shots, but I don't understand what they want for the first one? The 2nd one seems to be a screenshot of beeb, and the 3rd one says "Show screenshot of completed phrases showing on screen"

Does that sound right?

step 1 you don’t need a screenshot
Step 2 is a screenshot of Beeb settings to prove the build number it’s running, go to the cog and choose app settings and it gives you the details - so either use the snipping tool on windows (there should be a search box at the bottom left of your screen) or you could take a photo with your phone and email it to yourself and then save it on your laptop to attach to the test case.
Step 3 - again just a screenshot of the final screen at the end of your phrases.
Step 4 - click on the link for the survey and when you get to the final screen thanking you for completing it - again take a screenshot and attach.

and remember and click the done or pass button at each step and hit submit and your done.

Thanks Rich, that's a good help. Yeah I read about your issues with the download, wish I could help, but I'm no expert on the minds of computers, are you going to try and download another update? All I say is when you get to the beeb part the speaking is easy and fast. It's just all this other stuff at the start and the end that's the confusing part. Hopefully though as this is the first one it will get easier the more we do.

I’ve just gone into Settings and pressed Windows Update and I’m installing it now. Hope it doesn’t take too long.

Where do you get the cycle ID and Test case number?

The cycle id is right at the top of the test case screen beside the name of the cycle and starts with a # so should be 262033 if your on week 3
And then scroll further down and you’ll see another number with a # and it has the words test case before it

Thanks, you're a star, that's that one done, I don't think I can do anymore again, ever! o_O:D

When does uTest pay out? I earned £10.19 on the first BBC task I did and I’m nearly about to submit the next one so when will I get the money for those?

As I said before they pay out twice a month, at the beginning and the middle. You will get an email from them once the test cases have been approved and your payment will be added into the next batch for payment. For this cycle they have been approving cases fairly quickly so you should hear soon about them. So if you hear before the 14th you’ll be paid in the middle of the month but if it’s after the 14th then it will be end/beg of next month.

I haven’t came across anything on this forum that is instant payouts unless I’ve missed a trick and generally you have to wait a few weeks to a month for money coming through. It’s the joys of online working unfortunately and the transition when you start out can be daunting as you just want to know where your going to get money from or when it’s going to appear. I’ve learnt that any day could be pay day in this game.

I got the email about homework week 4, when are we meant to do it? I assumed I would get a week off after the palaver of week 3, and it would be next week? Plus I take it it's just the same thing? I don't think I could cope with anymore downloads, or things not working.

there is an option to do a second round of homework 3 this week and they released homework 4 yesterday for eager testers. But there will be a week 4 cycle open soon for those that don’t want to do the extras this week. Yeah same idea but you’ll be asking it different things. Shouldn’t be anything to download unless there is an update to the app itself but it should just be a 5 min update, nothing crazy! But if your not feeling the love for it then you don’t need to join any new cycles that come up for it.

Thanks as always Jen, I did the 2nd week 3 homework, least I think I did :oops: I will stick with it, just was a bit overwhelmed by getting the whole thing set up. Hopefully the next one will be much easier.

Fair play to you all for doing this one. I was invited to do this and accepted the job... but decided to unaccept it after seeing how complicated it might be on here! I was also a bit worried about Microsoft Insider's warnings about the risk of losing my files etc by having a potentially unstable OS installed. Did you back up your files? I may give this a go down the line, maybe using a virtual machine.

I’ve not lost anything so no issues here, you can also turn it on and off for testing if you want so it’s not running all the time.

That's good to know, thanks! I've lost precious files in the past with corrupt installs of Windows so always like to be careful. Am I right in thinking you do the recordings on your phone and then upload them through your computer?

No you do all the recordings through your laptop via an app that the BBC will be launching.

You know when it says Homework 4 Respray and that you need to use a different BBC account.. do they mean I just need to make another BBC account and I can do the homework again myself?? Or do I actually have to have another person doing it with me?

Yeah just set up a different bbc account with a different email address and do the homework again yourself.

Awesome. Do they take ages to tell you whether you’ve passed or not? I’m dying to know.

I've just received this email. If anyone would like me to refer them please message me (I need to submit some info including email address into a form). I will split the referral bonus 50:50. If the referral bonus is this high I would imagine the actual testing reward would also be a reasonable amount.

"We're currently looking for testers based in Liverpool, Birmingham, Bristol, and Chester and would be interested in installing full-fibre broadband connection in their homes. This project involves testing this fibre broadband internet connection, therefore it requires the tester to have the right to have the full fibre installed at the premises.

If you do not live in those cities but know someone who does and may be interested, please keep reading for a referral bonus opportunity of $100. The project would last around 3 months starting late April and involves the following:

  • Our client engineer would come and install a full-fiber broadband connection at the property (The client connection would be installed as a secondary, separate connection and your existing connection would not be affected)
  • You would need to perform some simple tasks such as speed tests from time to time
  • Provide some feedback on your experience at the end of 3 months duration"
