My comment on this is currently awaiting moderation. Just in case the site owner decides not to publish, I have copied it here:
Having read your article, I fully understand where you’re coming from. Survey taking and ‘micro tasks’ are extremely time-consuming and very low paid. However, in defence of Vivatic, I have to say since I joined the site 2 years ago I’ve been extremely satisfied. Once you get over the initial hurdle of accessing and passing the writing test (fortunately this only took me a week) the writing tasks are fully accessible, the payment process simple and transparent, and providing you continue to submit high quality work, the earning potential is there.
On the other hand, having read through your comments, and in particular your last reply, I’m now starting to question your motives for posting this review at all. Vivatic offers writing jobs. You, Tony, have not written for Vivatic, yet here you are quite obviously targetting (head-hunting?) a writer on this thread – offering what? Some kind of course? Why would a good writer need a course, may I ask? Free or not, could this not be considered
a ‘micro-task’ equivalent which, unlike the site under discussion, merely leads unsuspecting souls straight up the garden path to be promptly dropped into your own fully-customised profit-driven well?
Tell me, what could a good writer possibly gain from this that a site like Vivatic doesn’t provide – or even just using their own contacts, talents and drive in order to succeed?
