Hey, I just bought MW2, seems like an awesome service. At any rate, just wondering, what's your turnaround like?

Hey, just wanted to point out a minor bug with login--the username is case-sensitive, so if I enter my username without a capital V I can't log in.

What kind of abuse were you getting?

Unfortunate you had to move to an account-based system, makes it less attractive to new-commers (easier to start right off the bat than to register an account) but I figured you would need to change your policy at some point.

This is not a big deal in the least, but just thought I'd point out this bug I've come across a few times. Here is a screenshot... It is basically where the two rolls for choices for choosing if search terms are satisfactory get kinda stuck. It's not a big deal, prob. an API problem anyhow, just thought I'd make you aware of it.

EDIT: Happens when scrolling while the "slide" is changing.

Yeah, that's why I asked if you wanted me to pursue the issue with granting too much leeway or not, figured it might have other implications, wasn't sure.

Anyhow, there is an annoying bug (not sure if it is just my system) but when I try to send feedback on a question, I end up getting a message about enabling something or another whenever I type the letter "t". Other than that, haven't had any other problems, and noticed you made it so that there is some check to make sure you entered a bitcoin address instead of a name or something, awesome Smiley

I've had a bit of trouble with some questions being marked kinda odd (or being marked one way one time or one way the other) as well, hasn't seemed like too much of an issue yet, I shall see...

To add to this, giving feedback on why a question is wrong/unfair is quite hard when typing the key "T" on my MacBook prompts the page to say something about tools activated. Want a video about this? (It'd be quick...)

Update to previous post, posted separate though:

Got to I think 63%, and it's booted me off for good, so it just seems it is a bit glitchy around the time when you are like borderline, like 71%, as well as in finishing the tests? Lemme know if you want me to pursue this further. Smiley
1688  Economy / Micro Earnings / Re: [Project Development] CoinWorker.com - earn bitcoin in your browser in minutes on: February 22, 2012, 03:39:00 AM
As well, I have taken it upon myself to take this accuracy/quality control testing one step further. Here are my results:

Did the test/prep for the 13 point "how relevant are these results". Passed the first time with 50%, but needed 2 more. Got the 2 more after being told I was wrong. Reloaded page, click on the icon for the 13-pt task, and was back in, chuggin' away. Got some incorrect, percentage went down. Percentage went down to like 71% or something. It booted me off, as expected, saying my accuracy was too low. I went back to the selection area (with the 12 and 13 point tasks) and selected the 13-point tasks again. Boom, in again, with still 71% as my percentile, but able to do more work.

There seems to be something extremely wrong with people not being able to complete results with good accuracy but still getting to go on. I'll do some more testing with even lower percentages...

I have reason to suspect this is CrowdFlower's issue, not yours, Warge, but I put in my BitCoin address, then chose the 13-point "how relevant are these items?" thing. I worked through the qualifications, got a 50% the first time (although I arguably should have gotten 100... not the point, but they said a car was very related to searching for a manual for a car, but I digress, lol) so I took it again to get my remaining 2 credits. I took it again, then go the sorry message about failing. I reloaded the page to see what I had missed this time, and it took me to the page with the choices for tasks. I clicked on the "how relevant are these items?" again, and it let me start earning. Any idea what is up with this? If this is a crowd flower issue, might want to let them know. I'll report back if anything odd happens with this not working.

Anyhow, very glad you got more tasks, that's awesome Smiley

But they would be able to see the bitcoin address last receiving coins on coinworker.com... They could see a bunch of little winnings from the same bitcoin address... :/
1691  Economy / Micro Earnings / Re: [Project Development] CoinWorker.com - earn bitcoin in your browser in minutes on: February 17, 2012, 03:04:28 AM
Man, tomorrow would be amazing if that did happen Smiley I've been checking the website like every few hours (and right when I get up in the mornings) to check for more work (a bit odd I suppose). IDK, I just think it's an awesome idea, and I love being able to pick up enough disposable income in one day to be able to buy a steam game Smiley

Great way to get a bit of online spending cash. Oh well, can't wait till your out of "testing" mode Smiley So about how long does it take for a place like yours to get out of "testing" mode?
1692  Economy / Micro Earnings / Re: [Project Development] CoinWorker.com - earn bitcoin in your browser in minutes on: February 16, 2012, 10:38:03 PM
Just curious, how long do these droughts usually last?

Looking forward to more tasks, but still new to all of this, not sure exactly what to expect.
1693  Economy / Micro Earnings / Re: [Project Development] CoinWorker.com - earn bitcoin in your browser in minutes on: February 13, 2012, 01:44:33 PM
Totally hear you about the waiting on SEO, forgot about that Tongue

As well, I don't know much about mySQL, but did you check to make sure you can't do injections?
1694  Economy / Micro Earnings / Re: [Project Development] CoinWorker.com - earn bitcoin in your browser in minutes on: February 12, 2012, 11:00:58 PM
Just want to say that this is an amazing product/service! It's really easy to use, time-efficient (Clocked in over 2 BTC with just over an hour and a half of work), and fun seeing your balance update in real-time. Great work, Warge, this project has some great promise.

The only roadblock (aside from underexposure, easily fixed) I see for this service is the shortage of work, such as the recent 18hr+ shortage (which I understand isn't your fault, Warge, but simply crowdflower doesn't provide jobs on a regular basis), which would hopefully improve as you get to be a longer customer with crowdflower and get more hits on your website.

Just as you use a CrowdFlower API to pull jobs and display them, I see at least a niche in the market for your own API. So far, your product seems pretty unique, no other mTurk-type work with BitCoin payout that I know (although I have heard of one proposed on another forum), meaning you might be able to capitalize on your own API, for people to embed in websites for donations, etc. (Such as embedded in a website for a gaming server that a player can log onto and drop a few minutes mining 0.1 bit coins as a server donation instead of spending real money) although I have no idea how possible this is being that you are already pulling from a proprietary API yourself. Just an idea.

As well, I noticed your website doesn't have too good of SEO (a search for CoinWorker on google has irrelevant results before your actual website, and BitCoin-related searches don't pull up your website.) Getting some better SEO may prove very beneficial, helping this awesome project go main-stream.

While this doesn't really currently work for a steady income, it is great to pick up some spending cash (especially when coupled with services to buy steam games with BitCoins), and might be marketed in such a way to entice people who would like to, for example, beef up their gaming library (if you are going to consider buying and placing advertisements) or buy some music online.

As well, it's awesome your keeping up with your growing community on Twitter, helps a lot to be able to ask/communicate directly with a developer.

A quick bug with your system (only a problem for people who don't quite get it) your system doesn't check on submission of a BitCoin address whether it is malformed or not (might want to at least check to make sure it is 34 characters) as a user can unwittingly enter a real address, name, or something else without receiving an error about their submitted "address".

The UI feels polished and works nicely, anyone should be able to figure out what to do quite quickly, very good for a website aimed at more of a general audience.

I agree with Vitality:
Are you familiar with Swagbucks?
They have a tasks section that comes from crowd flower and there are 15+ different tasks currently available.
CoinWorker would be a lot more competitive if it could offer those tasks.

Swagbucks (and many other sites, for that matter) offer a lot more tasks and options, again I don't know how crowd flower distribution works, perhaps it's based on how many tasks have been completed through you before? Anyhow, if you have any control over the tasks that you have on your website, of course the more the better, and all with good time I'm sure they'll arrive Smiley.


At any rate, awesome service, awesome site, and very few bugs of any sort.
Keep up the good work! Really like this site, but you definitely need a larger variety of tasks which I know crowdflower currently offers.

Also wanted to say, to deal with the inherent problem with startups of underexposure, might want to put this on the bitcoin wiki (under something like earning or mining) just as simply a helpful inclusion to the growing list of other services (most very inefficient for earning).
