The new "Answer a few questions about a website (Candada - DAYOFWEEK task #6)" task isn't working for me.

I clicked it, clicked the link to bring up a google page, searched in google, found the link on the 3rd page of results, clicked it, found the 3rd featured game, and filled in the form.  Then I was told:

"Could not save your work
You must click through to the specified web page."

I tried it twice, and got the same result both times.

I wonder if my ad blocker is interfering.

Edit: I tried it without the ad blocker and get the same result.

Also, they ask "would you use this site?" but not "why not?".  I wouldn't use it, because they don't accept bitcoin, and would like the option to tell them that that's the reason.

Edit: I tried in Firefox as well as in Chromium and got the same error

I believe it's best to report that to the actual company that submitted the job. Coinworker probably can't help with you with that, I think.

It would be great if this could be expanded to countries where people don't get paid a lot.  I know some people in China that get paid less than $1 an hour.  That would also promote use of bitcoin with even more unstable currencies.

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.

Thank you Warge for inventing CoinWorker!

Now even my dad can mine bitcoins.
I get to look at boobs all the time, and wife 2.0 approves of it! (because she gets to look at cocks Smiley ).

I've successfully solved many 2, 3, 6 and 12 points tasks with great accuracy and I wonder why can't I continue solving tasks if there is enough tasks available on my tasks list? Right now there are 200 available tasks for 12 points, but I cannot work on them as the system is keep telling me that the task doesn't have any more available work.

Is it like there are currently 200 people solving the task, or it has to do with something else?

Thanks.

I've had to add a registration/login requirement and clearer terms of service to deal with some abuse.

Once registered, if you're sure to do your *first* work as a registered user with a preferred address/extended-address you've used before, your worker history/reputation will carry over to your login account.

I'm sure I'll need to iron out some bugs from this transition, but it then should be easier to set a personal preference on pay-frequency/thresholds.

Please let me know any glitches or problems you see (separate from those that need to be reported direct to task authors). Thanks!

I tried to register, but when I clicked the link in the verification email it told me the key was invalid. I seem to be able to log in anyway, though.

I registered with CoinWorker today, to give it a try and I would like to share my experience with you.

I picked a task to answer questions about what people felt about a movie called Project X, judging by their tweets. At the beginning, I was in training mode. The system was asking me questions so I could get the hand of it. I think there were 12-15 question in training mode.

After that, the real thing started and I was trying to figure out what the people were feeling about the movie. The payout was 6 points for every 3 pages work, each page containing 4 questions (i.e. 6 points for every 12 questions). I answered 15 pages of questions (not counting the ones in the training mode), which is 60 questions and spend about 45 minutes. I checked my account and the balance was 0.067BTC. At that rate I was able to make 0.089BTC per hour (this is roughly 37 euro cents per hour with today's exchange rates). I guess those kind of questions were too difficult for me.... I might try sometime with a different task and see how it goes Smiley

But let me clear something out. The service WargeGeoshington provides is not bad at all. This post is only about my experience. For other people, it might be a lot more useful.

Try Amazon's Mechanical Turk and see how well you fare. Bet CoinWorker pays better than mturk.

You're quite right! I took a look at https://www.mturk.com/mturk/findhits?match=false and it seems that $0.03 to $0.12 per hour seems to be mainstream. CoinWorker is far better with a rate of about $0.45 per hour compared to Amazon's Mechanical Turk.

In the end if you think about it. Is $.45 an hour really worth the time? Not trying to shoot down this project (I've even done some myself) or anything but just putting in my 2 bitcents.

I work on it when I'm in bed. instead of reading a book, which costs money, I now earn money lol

And it's so more easy to fall asleep after half an hour of boring dull tasks Wink

The tasks are very easy, the rate isn't so bad if you need to get some Bitcoins fast.
The payout is almost instant Smiley

Not anymore it seems:

"Payments are currently on hold for pending balances under 200 points."

That is a lot of time, to build up to .4 btc before getting paid... and right now there aren't any available tasks for me. 

Is that balance held indefinitely or will it eventually get paid out after 24hrs or something?

I agree. 0.4 is a little high, 0.2 BTC threshold would work better.

I don't understand why any payment is held until a certain level is reached. 

If someone only wants to do one task to try it out why shouldn't they be paid for it?

That's better than receiving a tiny amount every few mins while you spend your time doing tasks.
Perhaps there will be an option to request a payment at some point, but for now the 200 point minimum is fine.

That's how it was originally, and I wish it could still be that way.

But, there was discussion in some places about repeating training tasks under different accounts, and then evidence of people doing automated/careless work for one address until disqualified, then repeating the process in new accounts.

(There was also talk of sharing answers to training/test tasks. While that could be an innocent attempt to more quickly learn the right standards to apply, such 'crib lists' also serve to help weaker or bad-faith workers masquerade as good workers for longer before being disqualified. That's why it's important, even with sometimes-flawed training tasks, that each worker complete tasks on their own using only the guidelines in the official interface.)

Registration and the minimum threshold are a couple of measures to make the fake-work-then-repeat-cycle less profitable. They're not perfect and will no doubt require continued adjustment over time, in order to make sure the bulk of the payments go to workers doing quality work. Unfortunately these measures also slow the flow of payments to new good-faith CoinWorkers. But, as your history of work grows, you'll be free from any delays/restrictions on new and unproven accounts.

Decide "Yes" or "No" for Product Manuals: Manufacturer Information

Quote
Who is the Manufacturer of this product?(required)

Manufacturer is the maker of the product (e.g. Fujitsu). If you cannot find the manufacturer in our list, enter NOT FOUND.

if you enter NOT FOUND or not found or Not Found or nOt FoUnD, some javascript empties out that field when you hit submit and it subsequently tells you the field is required.

there seems to be no way of getting past it if you don't have a manufacturer name.

also, posting here because crowdflower support tells me i need to sign up, but couldn't be bothered.
