Thread Details

Tasks
i decided to create a thread discussing various tasks as seen in reward sites such as sb, zb, cbd, irazoo, superpoints, and any others in the future. (please no asking for referrals)
I imagine we will focus on "fisher" tasks but various tasks are all welcomed.
The thread is primarily a task discussion thread to announce tasks found at a place or how- to's regarding the task, that said... some ot will be fine and mention in the title.
ill start off the Wiki with real info so this post stays small...

I got credit for all the tasks I did at CBF today. I did not get credit at SuperPoints the first time and this is why I think it didn't credit. Sometimes when you click on the task you want to do, it throws you straight in to the task. It did this every time at CBF. At SuperPoints, the first time, it didn't but instead threw me to a page that lists all the CrowdFlower tasks and how many are left in the quota for those tasks. Normally, when I get that open, I just close it and go back and click the task again and it opens up just fine.....but I noticed it was offering 100Points for the task instead of 75 so I decided to give it a go. It did NOT credit. What it does point out to me is how much more SuperPoints are taking from us for the tasks there. I mean, it looked like CrowdFlower were offering 100 points for the task but that SP had knocked it down to 75. I did do it one more time there and it credited just fine.

I actually had more spare time today than I thought I would but to be honest, 80c for a task that they usually pay $1.10 for....I just couldn't be bothered wasting my holiday. Last time it was only 80SB I was pretty sure there was only 2 search results we had to put down and today it was back to 3 and I really think they're taking the piss (pardon my French) to expect us to do it for so little. So I did it at CBF, on one wall at Zehx and one time at SP and got on with putting me feet up after a very busy weekend....I even took a little nap this afternoon! Big Grin

Does anyone have an excel 2007 spreadsheet for keeping track of the sites where you do the task? I'm working on one now and will post if I can figure it out. I'm having a hard time with it though. What I'm trying to do is have the ability to put a check box next to a wall when I complete a task at a website.

I just received this message from crowdflower while doing a task:

New features are on the way!

We're restarting the servers so we can launch some new features and fixes. Reloading in about 20 seconds should allow you to pick up right where you left off. We apologize for the interruption.

ALERT - Fisher Tasks are up:

Search for terms and record the search results (different job - more work available)
Search for terms and record the search results - third job!

You can do them twice each.

Search for terms and record the search results (different job - more work available) is the easier of the two.

I see that it's back up on some boards.

Quote from Xarthan View Post :

Speaking of which, I went to submit a task after finishing page 5 and it's still trying to submit. OK, finally finished and I noticed that more has been added to the quota. YAY for us.

Did the tasks twice on Gambit task wall at Super Points and I didn't get credited. I emailed. So regarding the not getting credited issue I believe Batan had, I am sure it is Gambit and not CBF.

Third job isn't working for me at all. I keep getting told that I made an error but I followed everything exactly right. Forget that one.

Count Reviews of Businesses (Google Places) - 20 SB - (531 tasks until quota is filled).

Super easy task. You just click a google link, make sure the title of the business matches, and type in how many reviews there are. I was supposed to compare city too but I just flew through it. It's 10 pages but it only took me 10 minutes maximum.

Excel Workbook for keeping track of task

Included are the six sites I use: SP, iRazoo, SB, ZB, CBF, ZEHX.
For the 2nd row, where the boxes are blank, I usually enter "1 X 18" to keep track of how many times I've been credited. The workbook has 6 pages (Name of sites are at the tab at the bottom). Fell free to customize at will.

Excel 2007:

Why the hell didn't I notice this earlier?!

On the Choose the Best Search Result tasks, there are 0 or 1 verification questions on each page (or maybe even 2, I'm guessing here). You ONLY have to get those questions right, you can type garbage into the other fields. It saves a lot of frustration, not having to look it up in the wiki for this thread (but I appreciate the work that goes into the wiki all the same worship).

The Reputation.com and Griffith harsh questions and all their variations are never verification questions. Put in any URL.

I've found 2 questions that are definitely for verification (I got them wrong):
  • jerry swon
  • jerry swon new jersey

ETA: I just got a verification question for reputation.com review, so maybe they're somewhat random. If you get a verification question wrong, please post it.

ETA again: I just finished 2 more of these tasks using junk URLs for Reputation.com, Griffith harsh, justin devinney, homerun.com and all variations. Sooo much easier this way.
