    It's creepy how I started looking into microworkers before you put this thread up xD
    In any case, I have an account now and have been looking around.

    Microworkers was one of the first sites I started working on about 3-4 years ago. I stopped doing that site when I found work because Mturk always had work up and there were times when I wanted to work but there was no work available for me on microworkers. Not sure if it's the same now. I would love to hear how it is now as well, so I will be following this thread :)

    * I stopped doing that site when I started working on Mturk because mturk always had work up...

    Sorry... this site isn't letting me edit posts right now and I just reread what I wrote and realize it didn't make as much sense as I thought it did Lol

    I joined Microworkers and mturk at the exact same time (summer of 2014). I just noticed mturk had more work up and microworkers always had terrible 2-3 dollar an hour stuff up

    Microworkers is not good. I opened an account and checked around. Most of the jobs were low paying and required you to use your social media sites. Also, saw a couple of Youtube videos and online posts about how shady the pay was. It seems some workers were waiting weeks for their payout. No thanks. Do your research before you commit to becoming a freelancer on certain sites.

    I did a small amount on work on microworkers. As a nieve noob i ended up being hounded by phone calls about bitcoin, investing etc and an email box full of spam.. I avoid it now

    You should not be sharing your personal information on any Freelance work that you do, especially for surveys with very little payout.
