    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if anyone that still works on Web5/Freshness news is unable to access the UHRS server as of right now (13:18 GMT 26/9/18) getting the same sort of message you would expect to get if the page did not load/404 etc, weird was working fine earlier today and my internet is fine.

    I just emailed the TL

    I realise this thread is pretty much dead, but am wondering if anyone else has been thinking about the upcoming contract renewal (assuming we get one). The pay rate for the project I assume we're all on has now remained the same for 3 and a half years, and if it does not rise this time, come April it will fall below the new minimum wage. I have done search engine evaluation work for various companies since early 2012 now, and this would be the first time I've encountered this situation. Looking back at my records, back then with Lionbridge, pay worked out at over 2 higher than minimum wage, which being self-employed I was happy with. Alongside ISS, I'm also currently signed up with Leapforce, and pay with them (in $) does work out at a decent rate. But I still spend the majority of my time doing ISS work, partly because I got this job first and only applied to LF as I believed I was about to be fired, and partly due to the lack of availability of LF tasks during the day when I want to work. I'm assuming as self-employed "contractors" we may not have the right to be paid minimum wage, but am unsure. Does anyone have any thoughts about any of this? Will people be continuing on in 2019, even if things remain the same? Or are others maybe not really affected, due to the (unfair) rules whereby doing a certain number of hours entitles them to a higher rate than those working less than that figure.?

    Hi I don't really wanna comment on that since I don't wanna jinx anything, but its 09:44 and UHRS are not available again, just checking its the same for other GB Freshness news/Web5 workers.

    I emailed an hour ago , I know its the start of the week but they used to load them in bang on 8am.

    EDIT: UHRS is back to normal, work has been reloaded

    No, not received mine. Seems to be a lack of organisation (and also work) lately, so I wonder if something is going on..

    Hi all

    Just to update last weekend I received my invoice for January 2019 (Freshness news/Web5 etc). So I reckon we will get paid very soon, hopefully by Monday 18th (since its usually before 16th each month, unless the 16th falls on a weekend).

    There is a new issue today though which I have escalated to our manager. The Query field, which usually appears to the left of the landing page URL in the rating tool, is missing. I have also reported this within the UHRS tool itself, if anyone is logged in please do the same. Hopefully it will be resolved asap.

    Tasks are back now and Manager is chasing up with finance regarding when our payments will go into our banks, I also asked him to find out when task volumes will return to normal, he did advise previously that would get sorted and he is aware of it.


    EDIT : Paid!
