I'm disappointed in the quality of gifs.
I don't get it. How does one file a "slave wage" suit after willingly doing a job in the capacity of independent contractor?
Hey. That like a pizza or 12 pack or something. NICE.
3200 with crowdflower, unbelievable someone did that much
Imagine if mturk is sued and they decide to give all of us 1 dollar for every hit we have done as part of a settlement.
Don't know about you but that would be a pretty great day

147847 Not as good, but still not a bad payday
Imagine if your aunt had balls...She'd be your uncle.
But which target bathroom would she use?
Honestly they should have gotten nothing and it should have been written off as a stupidity tax. So hard though to not feel a little happy since Crowdflower is an awful company.
Depends on where she lives: stupid state where it depends on your genitals, stupider state where it depends on your BC, or a smart state where no one even cares.
Maybe they should use smell to decide?
What was Crowdflower and what did they do/offer? I don't remember anything about them other than their rep for being bad and awful.
transcription if memory serves
Honestly, I don't understand how that lawsuit was won. They claimed to be 'misclassified' as independent contractors, but that's exactly what you are on mturk. So, what makes Crowdflower different from any other shitty paying requester?
They did tons of stuff. Categorization, sentiment, writing, search engine crap, etc etc. Also operated under the name Dolores Labs or something, maybe others, can't remember.
A smattering of different tasks. They were most famous for their own system being out of sync with mturk for the number of tasks left, so you'd always accept a HIT and then get an "oops, no more work!" message, which got known as "getting crowdflowered".
The only HITs of theirs I ever bothered with were these weird ones where you'd diagram a sentence or something, they took like 2 mins and paid $.50.
