Why do people accept MyLot tasks they cannot do?

I posted a VERY simple task last evening. I have had 6 messages saying task completed. Only one person had completed satisfactorily, I have had to return 4 and reject 1 totally. This was a very simple task and I will be posting more over the next 2 weeks, but I think I will just be rejecting, not corresponding on the nature of any rejection or modifications required. Do you accept tasks that you are unsure of?

That must be frustrating for you. I have done a little bit of tasks, mainly for SharonBucks and some other sign up or twitter follow. I only accept the tasks which I feel confident that I can do a good job of. What is the point of accepting a task that you cannot do properly? Someone is paying you to do the job and it is my duty to do that task well. And by accepting a task, I am confirming that I will do the task well. I guess some people just accept a task just for the money. Well, I accept it for the money too, but you know what I mean. By the way, what was the task about? Is it on now? I usually check the tasks most days, I haven't done it in 2/3 days. I will check it out now.

Thanks for that. I know the pay is very little, but yes, if you say you can do it, you should be up for doing it properly. Task was to post a link from your own blog to mine and comment on a post on my site when done. Most people are not giving me a link to the link they have put on, or not commented. It takes hours to respond constructively, I will not be doing that for long

yes your right, i also had a task for members and i also returned some task coz they failed to follow instruction. the instruction is actually very clear as in fact theres a lot who was able to do it but some just took it easily like they are not really interested to it. in my case if ever i want the task i see to it that i understand the task well and and make sure everything is fine before hitting the submit button to avoid redo it again and what if the task owner did not give you a second change, even if we followed what the task owner want but we failed to submit the right information as what they really ask for then its just a waste of time. the owner pay for the task so i guess its our responsibility also of following what they are asking for, if its not clear to us then better ask for more information nor dont do the task.

I thought I had it spelled out in words of one syllable, but maybe I should have rephrased parts of it, ...next time...

perhaps your task is not clear and they are quite confused on how to do it as they only based their answer to how they understand it. i just check out your task and its really confusing of what your really asking for. you mean you want a link to your blog but whats the other site for. are we going to post in our own blog a certain topic which theres a link to your blog or you want us to comment to a site that using a link to your blog. which is which.

I am a teacher, my English is perfectly clear...I want people to post any post they like on their own blog. The post must contain a link to my website. THEN visit my website and make a comment on any post, where they could include the link to their own post

its not actually the english as its perfectly well, maybe the instruction is somehow confusing, but on what you say today its better that way, its like i will create post to my own blog then go to the given site and post comment where i can link my own blog about the post i made where theres a link to your site. now i understand how.
