The referral project is a different thing. IT should appear on your dashboard when you login to apply for

Did I read somewhere (on @Jon 's email?) that they are not wanting Scottish voices yet?

I wondered if I could ask those who have completed the task a few questions, please?
  1. Once you find someone to talk with (I'd probs use a family member), do you both have to use a phone to record the conversation on their platform?
  2. Does the phone call cost you anything to record (thinking about my phone bill!)?
  3. How long should the conversation take?
  4. Do you get any pointers on what to discuss? (thinking that I might not be able to think of an hour's worth of chat on insurance off the top of my head).
I'd be having to fit this in between kids' naps or trying to do it once they are in bed (and hopefully staying asleep!) so need to be as prepped as possible.

Thanks for any help!
I can help with these. :)

1. Yes, the system calls you both on your individual numbers and connects you.

2. As above - the system calls you, so you do not incur any costs.

3. Each conversation lasts 15 minutes. The system disconnects you after this time.

4. Yes, you have a list of topics, such as friends, family and work.

Perfect, thanks! Will find out if they are looking for all English speaking dialects or just English then I'll join in too.

Thanks for using my recruiters reference number - your recruiters reference number should be the same as your Appen Global ID found on account settings and the speech collection referral tab :)

I thought it would be an easy task lol, but the person who was my receiver's phone was not ringing out! we tried many times and triple checked all the info beforehand and not sure why this is happening. I have sent them an email for support. They said screenshot them to see if they can see what is going on, but most of the info is basic like name, age, subject topic so not sure why it is not working. Really want it to work as it's got to be the easiest cash ever haha.

Any suggestions most welcome :):)

I potentially have someone now to do the calls with! I've asked Appen to extend my deadline past 11th November but haven't heard back.

Do you guys know if they are still accepting submissions for this task?
So annoying, my nominated person has bailed on me! I think they were confused about the task and have opted out.

I've since had an email from Appen with an increased payment of $60 and a deadline of Sunday 18th so if any money shedder would also like to complete this task and needs a call buddy, feel free to get in touch via PM :)

Any luck? If not, have you asked the Skype group? Appen probably won't respond until Monday.

Update - for those who haven't started/are in the process of doing it/want to take part, the project is going to end soon (within the next week). So, if you want to take part make sure you do the phone calls soon :)

Hi :) i did manage to complete the phone calls with someone else. I was under the impression that the deadline was Sunday at midnight so i rallied round to get it done for the $50. If i'd known they were going to increase the amount i sooo would have waited. Glad i did it though :)

It happens. Just gotta brush it off

The smartphone task apps (Roamler, BeMyeye) are RIFE with work that generally increases in pay as they struggle to find people to do it!

Not so much lately I'm afraid. Too many mugs around willing to do the jobs for peanuts now. Gone are the days that you could sit on your hands for a few days and watch a £3 job go up to £10 or more. They usually get taken really fast now. Minimum wage my arse as Mr Royale might have said ;)
