BlueMoods & DenisH - I find that an interesting stat, that all three (is it strange that I consider whether or not to use "3" or three here?)of us used alright! It would seem that the stats, in this case, are that 3/3 non professional writers regularly use the word alright. You're right about it not being in the previous guidelines sheet. Good point about "already" vs "all ready" as well Denise. I thought the exact same thing when I was looking up info on "alright" vs "all right" as others were bringing up the same thing. It's still great that, through this, our English is getting even better. What's not so great is that Crowdsurf users need to resort to outside forums for help. What would be really crazy to find out is that before this addition to the guidelines of how to transcribe all right, that reviewers were marking all right as an error. I mean I'm sure that's absolutely not the case, but it is fun to think about for a second. tdalton43 - Actually the message wasn't very detailed but here is what she said: On another HIT that was marked as "fair", the reviewer left this feedback: "There was general background noise and then a distinct sound of a door slamming or closing. This was not a blank audio." I couldn't agree with you more about this being very confusing and unclear in their guidelines. At least you learned a new word from it. I love learning new vocab, but that's just me I'm actually an Android Programmer and have been working on a vocabulary themed app for about a year now. It'll be out there someday. Next time I get a hit that is blank with some background noise I'm going to mark it with just a [SOUND] and then see if anything negative comes my way. One thing I did for fun was to check out a bunch of the review hits (I don't have reviewing abilities but can still view them) and the quality of the transcriptions I've seen every time have been pretty bad. I know the quality of what I'm submitting is much better at least. I think all we can do is come together and share thoughts and ideas here.
