ETA - Okay I see after I hit sign up, it states they are in beta. And if I want to join to send an email to the address they have posted on their site. So I did. Now waiting to hear back from them.

Are you signed up with them and if so how is the work and the use of the platform?

No, I'm not signed up for their platform. Thought it might be of interest to writers looking for a little extra spare change.

Looks like they're not taking workers right now (I've been reduced to Mturk in desperation lately, but with my comp being slow and all I can't manage more than $5/hr, so this seemed like it might be a good desperation option).

Nope, they aren't hiring right now. They said they don't want to over hire so that they have enough work to go around for the workers they currently have. They let me fill out a form online and placed me on their waiting list. I was told that they would contact me as soon as they got more work in that would accommodate more workers.
