I doubt he would have went through the trouble of doing all these new qual tests if that were true.
Could be that this new boss decided to show off to corporate by suddenly cutting this project.
Well I'll wait to hear that from mark
Stop being so negative sheesh! January is rough for most businesses as it is the end of their fiscal year. Let Mark breathe a little.
Mark hasn't logged in for a week. I was hoping he'd be on today to tell us any updates or something. Poop. Anyone hear anything?
Nope. Not even a word to those who have the new qual.
Nope. Sent him an email last Tuesday as well and never got a reply. I'm just hopping he pops in tomorrow even if its just to tell us "no work today". Though it would be great if he stuck around on the forum long enough to have a discussion on the future of medcrowd.
I think it's pretty clear that Mark can't say when there will be more Medcrowd work because he doesn't know himself. I don't think there's much of a discussion to be had if due to the new boss even he doesn't know what's going on. People repeatedly asking him about it or whining about there not being work can't change that. He knows his regular workers want work without being told over and over. I'm sure when he knows something he'll let us know.
I guess we all got a bit a little bit spoiled by regular work. If nothing else, this long gap is a good reminder that it's not a good idea to put all of your eggs in one basket, becoming too dependent upon one requester. It would suck if there were no more Medcrowd, and I hope that's not the case, but it's not like they're the only requester out there.
If nothing else, it's a bit funny to see people asking if they can get the quals when the people who currently have the quals already haven't been getting any work for quite awhile.
I think the best thing to do is just hope for the best but expect the worst.
He posts on MTG, last week someone said that they thought the batches would never be back and he said
So we will have megabatchpocolypse when he is able to post them again, it's just a matter of him straightening things out with his boss.
What would you like to discuss?
~ Mark L.
Nothing that you really haven't already heard, but if you have any questions I'm around to answer them.
~ Mark L.
Could you give us maybe an estimate on when the batches would be back? Like the way we haven't had them in a long time, will this likely continue until March? I know you don't have any new information for us but an estimate would be cool.
Also, how's the family?
In theory it should be sometime next week. However, that's contingent on my boss being happy with the x^th iteration of the report I've given her.
In reality I feel like it could be 2 weeks to 1 month away. I really hope this does not continue until March. I don't think it would go that far because then Q1 would basically be over and we'd have nothing to show for it.
The family is good. the little guy is growing! lol. Almost 5 months old now. My how time flies.

Good to hear MC will be staying around...
Hey Mark. Are you guys sending 1099s to those of us who made $600+ from your HITs?
Can't wait for the work to start up again. My Tuesdays just haven't been the same without you.
I wouldn't imagine they would, since Amazon doesn't give out that info to requesters anymore.
Essentially, Amazon only sends you a 1099-K if you make $20,000 in payment volume and 200 transactions. You have to meet both of those criteria for Amazon to file for you.
Basically, you're responsible for keeping track of how much you made and filing for yourself.
Ah, ok thanks. I just wanted to make sure before I filed my taxes.
I still have the urge to check this page. It became a habit; checking it every day.
I hope we "hear" from someone soon!
Any progress with the boss?
Mark is no longer with the company. There is a post in Medcrowd calls PSA with details.
