Some advice to tag ambiguous images (I post the correct answers).
I hope that I can help you to avoid these "traps".
Maybe, we could try to create a collection of "traps", and help new users to avoid them.

If You find a trap, You can post It here.

Please don't coordinate with other workers on responses. That destroys the value for the task-providers, who need independent judgements based only on the task content and individual worker's thinking. If CoinWorkers appear to be basing their responses on advice from other workers, the tasks will go away.

When the test/training tasks have issues, report them to the task provider via the provided mechanisms: the 'incorrect/unfair' link or 'Help'->"Feedback' toolbar menu.

Even when the test tasks have problems, to crib answers from other workers, rather than help fix the problems, is essentially cheating.

On the other hand, it's perfectly legitimate to let other workers know some jobs are more lucrative, or include more consistent rules, or should be skipped entirely. When people decide to ignore one task, and work on others, it sends a signal back that the training data, instructions, interface, or payments need to be improved on the disfavored tasks. That's helpful to the system and will keep the tasks flowing and improving.

To allow better assessment of work before payment, there's now a 200-point threshold an address must meet before payment. It was supposed to be 200-or-higher, and it was mistakenly set for higher-than-200. It looks like you reached 200, then tried another address, which meant neither address went over 200.

I've fixed the comparison bug, so the one with 200 should be paid soon. When the other reaches 200 or higher, it will be paid as well.

These thresholds will be tweaked more over time, so keep an eye on your 'activity' page or 'profile' page for the latest info.

Ok, I wont publish more images like them.

But I published only these problematic images. I think that they could block other users. Of course, I wont publish clear images that users should identify.

Also, maybe at start is difficult to test if some searches are relevant or not. For example, I have learned that a VHS tape with a different content (movie, series...) that specified in query, should be rated as "not a match" (instead of offtopic) if the query search for a VHS product.

I have 3 tasks (flag images*2, Categorize Twitter Users) in the list of available tasks even though they've been at "0 available" for about 2 weeks now (Finished! Sorry, there is no more work available on this job at this time..).
More annoying than problematic, but still...

What happens If I have less than 200 points and I can't work more because one task is finished, and the other task is the "text images sh*t", which doesn't allow to work?

It would be interesting to pay these pints if some accounts doesn't have activity in two weeks.

Some of the test questions are remarkably arbitrary, both with the text identification and the map search engine questions. Anillos posted some good examples. The unfair test questions he points out are still up. (for reference, since I decided to try CW based on reference to it in another thread, I did not read what he wrote prior to coming here to complain.)

There's a big grey area between what's a "big image" and what's a "small image." There's no leniency if you believe a "small image" is a "large image" or vice versa, even if it's clearly a gray area per the rules. Probably the worst is how they consider images which are themselves advertisements to be "product text." As well, if you answer a test question correctly later, it's not counted, so you can't really go anywhere but down after a while. The "incorrect" answers you contest are not marked "in dispute" - simply wrong.

Outside of that, the system's simply flawed. Tasks appear as available when they are not. There are effectively three or four tasks available. In the "search on Google" task, it occasionally demands you recite an excerpt on a result which does not display an excerpt, so despite the explicit instructions not to click on links, it's necessary to answer the question.

There are task which works very well like "Decide the Best Category for Events!" or "Flag images that contain adult content".

IMHO, eBay should reconsider the test questions, because there are more images that should accept two valid answers.

Test questions are to discard users who make random clicks or doesn't pay enough attention on images, not to test if user can guess if a "medium size" text was big or small, or some tinny letters count as "product test" or not.

You need at least 200 points.

This is because I think that every week (or two weeks, or a month) It should be a general payout to all users who earned less than 200 points in that week.
The transaction fees would be very small.

Having Similar problems After earning 2.0BTC with old system the new system requires login. Since then work effort(Same user as here) is 100% but nothing is earned. I created a new account different user and same problem complete work and no points get awarded.

Currently, a pending balance needs to reach 200 points to be paid. (Looking at your account last night, it's wasn't yet there.)

Soon, once you've reached the minimum points once on your account, you'll be able to set your own threshold, so even smaller amounts can be paid on request. That's a feature in the works.

Cool site, definetly legitamate, Ive made some btc so far. But the amounts are so low, when you work it out you'll realize how little money youre making...and maybe think about forgetting the whole thing and going out into the beautiful sunshiny day.

I also had some BIG disagreements on some of the answers, and I replied with my response why I was right. Only once was an answer adjusted from my whining. For example, There were twitter posts where teenagers used lingo that I feel like I understood but CF/CW didnt and it completely changed the sentiment if you know exactly what they're saying. Other tasks had multiple right answers and it was hard to figure out which was MORE right. Others relied on ambiguous standards or unfounded assumptions about which results were relevant to the searcher. I got myself locked out of the worthwhile tasks over this and cant do anymore coinworking... EVER :-( . The other tasks take a really long time and dont offer an equivalent reward, I mean 3 points is pretty low to do anything. I have a feeling I'm slowing going to get locked out of every type of job.

I have alot of suggestions on how to improve. For instance why not make the "click here to open up a new search window" link that points to just google.com just include the search string as well in the URL so theres no human error? All you need is a human eye and judgement, so why make them do the extra typing and clicking as well? Theres other stuff that didnt make sense to me either

On an unrelated note, has the payout stopped working? Ive passed up my 200 point min a long time ago and have had a 0.347BTC balance sitting there for days now. It used to cashout after 15-20 min... I dont want to continue if Im not getting paid. I like site and want it to succeed!
