Thanks for writing in and sorry for the inconvenience. Actually, Task Authors target their jobs through various methodologies, and unfortunately Figure Eight doesn’t control how these process occurs. We understand that this can be frustrating however, this is part of the nature of the platform, since Task Authors choose who works on their jobs.
It's unfortunately a pretty complex issue, which stems from the fact that Figure Eight is a two-sided marketplace where the Task Authors publish their jobs with whatever settings they want and Contributors task on the tasks they want.
Sometimes, a Task Author might use special targeting in order to only allow certain contributors to access their job. Perhaps they reviewed everyone's in a previous job and decided to target their next job to just a few of the best. Honestly, it can completely depend on what the Task Author wants to do.
One of the huge benefits of our business model (the two-sided marketplace) is that we can allow for a lot more work to be available than would be possible if we had to manage every single job ourselves. But, this comes with its own challenges, one of which is that not every job is perfectly set up. This means that sometimes, even though you are a great contributor, you may not have access to every single job.
Hope this helps clear up some of the platform's limitations. Sorry I don't have a better answer for you! If you wouldn't mind rating your satisfaction with this ticket once you're prompted to in the follow-up email, that would be great!
Let us know if you have other inquiry.
Questa è la risposta inviatami da Figure Eight al mio ticket nel quale lamentavo l'assenza di lavori (3 pagine di task, ID eterni per task ormai completate ed atre amenità). Conclusione: oggi ho solo due pagine di task e non mi sembra che mi sia stato spiegato granché, se non il fatto che gli autori delle task si scelgono i collaboratori che più gli aggradano.
Credo che, anche volendo continuare, non mi viene offerta alcuna possibilità.
