I would give them to people who helped me but I don't see the option
no qualified helpers came
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
So this means qualified helpers are getting money for nothing
btw robert, you need to learn the concepts of programming before actually going into coding
I am like diving right into coding
but I think I know the basic concepts
it seems to be you don't
probably not so much
you need to understand the process flow, like your last question: how does the whole program work?
Fyi, anyone can give owlbucks. It doesn't matter if the user is QH or not. Gifting owlbucks to other users is possible.
Like this actually:|dw:1439123335179:dw|
Yeah I'll never ask for the qualified helpers they are usually useless
qualified means qualified to steal
oh hey by the way what's the fastest way to level up because how qualified helpers have like 99 is very suspicious
without knowing much
They are mean tooXD
There have been times when I had to bail out some QH's... at least once or twice.
They are mean XD
XD u lost ur money!! LOL
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?
With higher quality that is.
I thought QH is all about Qualified Helpers....as in PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE!!!!!!!!!
Yeah apparently not. Hypocrites laughing at me for falling into their pits
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
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.
yeah definitely. Sincerity is becoming a commercial for-profit money making
I know if I don't receive my orders, I will file a dispute and I get my money back. he he he
yeah.... QH section needs Quality Control lessons.
Like the whole concept of get a qualified help now is a scam
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!
like wtf at least give it to the person
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
or 1 McChicken for $1 if they still sell it like that x.x
yeah so automatic 2 dollar every time people does a clickie on "Qualified Help"
costco hot dog and soda $1.50...
well jokes on them for now... there is no paypal at the moment, so can't cash out AHHAHAHAHHH!
They don't give two fu;;s who helps it or not. So they are taking advantage of others helping the person
For like free
What a deception
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
This is so bad
You know how many users are here right
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.
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
That makes me feel much better they are not using us yet to be qualified helpers so they can make money
what!!!! QH get a min of $7.75 per/hour!~!!
no lol it's $2 per question
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.
now that I mentioned earnings. do QH'ers pay taxes?!
oy saus!!!!!!!!!!!! IF you're in the US making over $600 a year, a W-9 has to be filled.
about 1 question a day
:D so evry QH question gives them $2
so OS is promoting.. how to run away from the IRS?
Now I feel like I was the one being meanXD
Go to venezuela
You can live off 2 dollars per dayXD
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.
unless you pay tax because you're self-employed... that's a hefty 48% going to Uncle Scam.... I mean Uncle Sam
there's definitely days you don't get questions
holy sh!t 48% tax
if you're self-employed, the tax rate is higher than if you work for someone in the US.
So basically they literally wear plastic bags to work
They can't afford regular stuff
for self-employed it's a W-9 form filed for working at some business or school job it's a W-2 form filed
dafuq is that way of taxing people
Oh by the way Mr. Barak Obama didn't show up his retriceat Nagasaki atomic bomb commemoration todayXD
yeah... you got a bunch of taxes @saseal Social Security Tax FICA tax then if you have medical insurance, that gets taken out Medicare Tax Income Tax
and if you're not married the tax rate is high ... blahhh.........
a standard calculator for wages and taxes http://www.bankrate.com/calculators/tax-planning/hourly-paycheck-tax-calculator.aspx
the highest % tax can go here is 32%. Income tax only. Medicare here isnt really a tax but kinda like mandatory "deposits" just in case you need it in the future
oh yeah... xD . I think if you work for 10 years you can get Medicare part A
so what you put in the medicare here actually goes back to you
not someone else that didnt work for it
there is no tax for os ppl :)
not unless you become QH and earn over $600 which I'm surprised that is not being stated here
https://www.iras.gov.sg/irashome/Quick-Links/Calculators/ this is the one for my country
guess the taxes are different? depends on the country x.x
they actually give you back $50 if you are in the lowest income bracket and have family
that's nice... mine is corruption all over... abuse of snap/ebt cards.
oh its maximum tax rate 37% for foreigners and 20% for local
what if i buy 97908 owl bucks ??
10 owlbucks is $2 USD so......?
but thats like if you earn 100k + annually
i have 111 owl bucks rite nw
then you can fall into the 37% / 20% bracket
that's odd... my owlbucks numbers are in bold.
i have 0 owl bucks
give a screenshot usuki
maybe like i have a triple figure so...
yours is weird like photoshopped. XD
i'll keep this in mind next time
wanna see how poor i am?
. . .. I was stuck in reply mode
yup.. I need sleep soon.
more like need sleep now... night everyone.
good night @UsukiDoll :) sweet dreams
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.
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.
