Уже давно заметил, что стало почти невозможно получить работу. Как только появляется, буквально за секунду-две исчезает. Ни одно живое существо не успеет вот так мгновенно схватить мышку и клацнуть. А ведь надо еще хотя бы с десяток-другой секунд, чтобы оценить, подходит ли тебе тема этой работы.

Я думаю, что кто-то придумал робота, программу, которая автоматически забирает все работы, которые появляются. И теперь в паре Англ-Русс стало почти невозможно работать. Только когда сразу много работ вывешивают, еще есть шанс хоть одну успеть ухватить.

Кто что думает по этому поводу?

    Hello everyone, 

    Thank you, alshep, for opening this topic again. I think in order to draw Gengo developers' team's attention to this problem, we have to post in English here. Please, do post everyone in ENG to RU pair who recently have faced the same problem of the jobs disappearing from the dashboard in half a second. I am also convinced that some translators are using software which is prohibited by Gengo policy because a human cannot open a job and consider if it is suitable and accept it in half a second. To have a full picture, everyone please share similar or opposite experience here in English about the process of picking up jobs in the last few months. If you are lazy, just put +1 or -1 in the comment section. Have a nice day!

    В последнее время стала актуальна другая проблема, связанная с зависанием сайта при наличии работы количеством больше одной, причем зависает вплоть до ошибки 502. Двойной квест теперь предстоит каждому, кто хочет поработать: 1. Обгони роботов ("побежденных" администрацией, ага). 2. Пробейся на сайт.

    AnastasiaM: Looks like you hit the nail on the head: I do not believe it is humanly possible to examine and snatch a job in a second. Something must be wrong here (with jobs allocation). And a general note: the last time I saw a job offered was three or four weeks ago, it remained visible for a second or two. And before that a job had been posted a month or so prior (at least that's what I was able to see - and to land a tiny part of it, must have been a really large project). AND THAT HAS BEEN THE ONLY JOB I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TAKE TO DATE - over the two years or so since I took and passed the test. I am giving up on Gengo - it is not worth the time an effort, there are much better options for a freelance translator.

    My RSS feeder shows about 1 new job a month. Is it really so or something's wrong on my side?

    Actually, RSS shows more jobs but it's of no avail: when you get into the Gengo Dashboard (even if you do that very quickly), all jobs are gone long ago. The suspected robot grabs all new jobs in a split second leaving all human translators jobless.

    Six large Pro projects disappeared in seconds. Still want to assure us that there are no robots here?

    I don't often keep my RSS browser open, but when I do so the RSS sometimes shows a few jobs per day. 2 or 3 or 4 or more. But, as I mentioned before, it's of no avail because of the robots. 

    I use RumpelstiltskinRSS

    I have been working for Gengo for 5+ years and have been making very good money. I have been loyal and felt like a part of Gengo team. Nowadays I actually feel frustrated and left alone. The care and help for translators have always been outstanding, Nowadays for around half a year  I virtually do not get any jobs. I have my way to see them coming and in half a second gone. There is no human way to solve this problem and I do NOT understand the reason why the Gengo professional developpers who can keep this whole big machine going, would not look into this problem. I guess the ones who take all the jobs satisfy Gengo needs. I do not see other reason but reluctance.
