Question Clickworker?

Today, while posting new work at home job leads I ran across an ad for a company called Clickworker. Apparently, they pay people to perform a variety of Internet tasks, such as research, creating text, completing opinion polls, etc. I recall a while ago there was a discussion here about similar work on Facebook. Have any of you ever worked for Clickworker? Can you share any feedback about them?

Thanks!

I tried Amazon's MTurk and it was just about a waste of time. It's good if you stare at the screen for a while using autorefresh so that if a 15 dollar task pops up in your queue you can snatch it before somebody else does, but I've got writing to do! All of their smaller tasks aren't worth it. I chose one of the easiest ones available and did them for about 20 minutes. I earned 67 cents lol. They weren't fun, they weren't even all that easy, and so I decided to pass on MTurk.

I use to do mturk but haven't bothered with them in a long time. I never could get my bank account approved (not sure why) so all I could get was stuff from Amazon, which was virtually worthless to me.

Wow. I also came across more sites like Mturk such as Shorttask, MiniFreelance and Microworker. Btw, Microworker didn't pay me for what I did at the site so to me, they are not worth wasting your time.
I also signed up at another place as well but they are not very memorable.

That's like does anyone remember the website that was paying ppl to type captcha phrases last summer? It seems these sites come and go.

I made about $600 in two months on Mturk. It's good for those who'd like to make money without any real concentration...mindless work with the TV on in the background is kind of a relief after you've written articles for a few hours.

I've just started with them and although the pay is low it is weekly which is a bonus with a bill looming

Fiverr.com is another similar website. I've hired from there. Real simple interface.
