I would give them to people who helped me but I don't see the option

no qualified helpers came

  • hartnn
you got the required help? If yes, then your owlbucks are not wasted, they were used to get help. Doesn't matter if a QH helped you or not.

I want the owlbucks transfered to you but this guy says no
anonymous
  • anonymous
So this means qualified helpers are getting money for nothing
anonymous

lol

btw robert, you need to learn the concepts of programming before actually going into coding
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh really?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am like diving right into coding
anonymous

but I think I know the basic concepts
anonymous
  • anonymous
it seems to be you don't
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
probably not so much
anonymous
  • anonymous
you need to understand the process flow, like your last question: how does the whole program work?
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
Fyi, anyone can give owlbucks. It doesn't matter if the user is QH or not. Gifting owlbucks to other users is possible.

Yeah I'll never ask for the qualified helpers they are usually useless

UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
like if I was a customer... and I'm paying you, I expect at least good or excellent results. If you're gonna swindle, and others find out, nobody would ask in the QH section. I mean why pay 10 owlbucks for average service where there are non-QH'ers who still help on OpenStudy for free?
anonymous
  • anonymous
With higher quality that is.
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
I thought QH is all about Qualified Helpers....as in PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE!!!!!!!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah apparently not. Hypocrites laughing at me for falling into their pits
anonymous
  • anonymous
Like I wanted to give that owlbucks for the person who helped me the most but they took away the owlbucks without doing ANYTHING!! And I ask them to at least give my owl bucks to the person who helped me and they ignore like what's wrong with you
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
but lately, non- QHers took over ... and you're not the only one who feels ripped off. I know another user who also got very bad QH service. There has to be a way to have the option for a refund... like if you're not satisfied with the help you've received, file a complaint within 24 hours and the owlbucks are sent back to you.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah definitely. Sincerity is becoming a commercial for-profit money making
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
I know if I don't receive my orders, I will file a dispute and I get my money back. he he he
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
yeah.... QH section needs Quality Control lessons.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Like the whole concept of get a qualified help now is a scam
anonymous
  • anonymous
whether you get it or not as soon as you close the thread they are like oh yeah you must have gotten the help you wanted good for you we did nothing and got 2 bucks thaaaanks!
anonymous
  • anonymous
like wtf at least give it to the person
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
yeah like in the beginning $2 is not a lot, but it can add up. that $2 could be a gallon of gas somewhere XD

Think you can be a Qualified Helper? Apply here. Qualified Help is offered for a limited subjects now - Mathematics and Chemistry. Detailed Instructions: Check if there are any Qualified Helpers online now. Type in your question. Click on the blue Ask a Qualified Helper button You’ll be taken to a dialog box where you will be asked to buy OwlBucks. OwlBucks are OpenStudy’s currency. Click on to the PayPal page. If you have a PayPal account, you know what to do. If you have a credit card or a debit card or even one of those prepaid cards, PayPal can take them all. So buy a pack of OwlBucks. You’ll need 10 OwlBucks to ask one question of a Qualified Helper. You can use OwlBucks for more Qualified Helper questions, to get a recommendation letter or even a volunteering certificate. We deduct the OwlBucks for one question. We send a message to all the Qualified Helpers who are there online in your subject. Qualified Helper will come to your question and help you. That’s it. Go to the orange button on top to rate them when you are done. We share your OwlBucks with them. Remember we can only promise to connect you to an expert. If your question is very complex, and the Qualified Helper is not able to help, send us a note and ask for a refund from complaints@openstudy.com

So basically sometimes openstudy is where people are employed not for a single penny so that qualified helpers stand a chance of getting the 2 bucks every time people get help from their employees not paid at all
anonymous
  • anonymous
This is so bad
anonymous
  • anonymous
You know how many users are here right
anonymous
  • anonymous
like wtf
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
nobody gets paid here. just volunteer work unless there's a QH status, but even $2 is peanuts. yeah there's a bunch of users on here. some I haven't seen in a while.
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
like minimum wage per hour is $7.75 (in my state that is) that's 4 QH questions per hours if someone with QH is lucky to even have that
anonymous
  • anonymous
That makes me feel much better they are not using us yet to be qualified helpers so they can make money
imqwerty
  • imqwerty
what!!!! QH get a min of $7.75 per/hour!~!!
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
no lol it's $2 per question
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
but at a regular job like cashier .... $7.75 an hour but here at $2 a question a QH er needs at least 4 within the hour just to make .25 cents higher than the minimum wage worker.
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
now that I mentioned earnings. do QH'ers pay taxes?!
imqwerty

hmm... this is getting interesting suppose there is one $2 question for 365 days (no leap year) $2 x 365 = $730 which is easily above the $600 mark.. so you can't answer for quite a while.
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
unless you pay tax because you're self-employed... that's a hefty 48% going to Uncle Scam.... I mean Uncle Sam
anonymous
  • anonymous

UsukiDoll

Qualified helpers don't make real money. :p It is only "Openstudy money" aka owl bucks. Owl bucks are not equivalent to any kind of real currency.
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
but it took real money to buy virtual currency which was the owlbucks 10 owlbucks = $2 1 owlbuck = .20 cents. Like I know it's not a lot right now, but when users continue to use QH and end up getting hit or miss services...they may eventually stop using this and there goes the money which is probably needed to keep OpenStudy servers running...besides ads.
