Isnt there someone on here who has been turking since the early 2000s? I was having a conversation with someone and they stated no one has been turking since the early 2000s.. Could of sworn someone say they started like 2005 or something
2009-ish here? I've only got quals/bonuses dating back to 2011, though. 🙃

This is about what did too. I must have signed up a year or so before I actually started trying to earn on there. By 2010 I was actively trying to learn this. I joined all the forums, many of which are gone now--several rightly so. Remember Turker Nation, Cloud Me Baby, and so on? I attended the forums in an effort to learn, not just turking, but how to use a computer, too. A real steep learning curve. All down hill.

Istarted in summer or fall of 2005. A lot of Amazon hits, color categorization of clothing,that sort of thing, a lot of batch hits, lots of copywriting,lots of sleazy affiliate offers thinly disguised as "surveys"

My lens surgeon, who is gonna rebuild the middle of my eye needs to have my retinal surgeon there to help clear out the gunk. Luckily the retina guy is my regular eye doc since I started having these problems. So they need to coordinate their surgery schedules before I can a surgery date.Hopefully I'll find out the date tomorrow.

I investigated turking back when they first rolled out, but I was heavily into Amazon, Linkshare, and other affiliate programs at the time and just didn't feel like it would be worth my time. Now, I wish that I had at least signed on - I would probably have the Masters qual since they gave it out fairly freely then....

Turkernation is still around; I believe they're mostly Slack based now.
