Work is nothing like it use to be. Seriously thinking that after this tax season, if I last that long, I will be done.

Yes, I've noticed a lot of bad snippets, especially a bunch that are upside down which we are not to type. We have to just skip over them. And that's aggravating, because you make less $ per hour when you have a bunch of bad snippets. So, I usually just log out of messed up queues and try another one, until I get a queue with decent snippets.

If you are a fast typist, you still have to type an awful lot of characters per hour just to make $5 or $6, because the pay rate is so low. So, keying a lot of bad snippets & making even less money per hour is sooooooooo not appealing to me.

There's been nice steady work though all week. I have a nice amount racked up & am hoping for at least 2 or 3 more days of the work being steady like this to fatten up my pay a little more. Trying to enjoy the work while it lasts, as it will probably get slow again in another 2 or 3 weeks.

Yeah, I have noticed at times the snippets can be really hard to read. I just skip a few at a time, if they continue to be bad, I just switch categories. If that doesn't work, I take a break and come back to it. I notice some categories are better than others and sometimes there are no bad snippets and you can type for a long time if there is steady work. It just depends on what the work is like each day. I managed to make payout on Tuesday so looking forward to getting paid! I know though that it will be about a week before I see payment but at least payments are always steady now and I have never had any problems with payment through Dwolla! I have never looked at Virtual Bee as a steady job, it's just extra income. But to me every little bit helps. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Happy Keying everyone!

My total includes skips instead of /blanks. Am I the only one this is happening to? If not, have they emailed you with any information regarding this? I know they can change the rules whenever they like, but they should let us know when they do.

I'm referring to the submitted characters total.

On 01/19 tw84 posted about the same thing. It's happening to me, now. Apparently, it doesn't happen to everyone.
