"I enjoy this site... To me it’s relaxing to rate, almost like when you do a crossword to unwind" - Phyllis
Simply follow the steps to start enjoying the ToneADay experience.
Your main objective on ToneADay will be to gauge the level of emotion present in snippets of text. Rate the level of emotion associated with the phrase or word based on how it makes you feel, and submit your rating.
*Keep in mind you should not be adjusting all 8 emotions, most phrases will only require that 1-3 slides be adjusted. Also, be mindful of where your rating falls on the slide. “9” or “10” ratings should only be used for extremely intense phrases.
Earn ToneADay Points
Users can gain or lose ToneADay points with each rating based on the quality of your ratings. Our system carefully monitors your ratings and compares them against others to ensure you have a strong understanding of the phrases being presented and that no spamming or rushing occurs. How well can you identify the emotional intensity of phrases in language?
Each week there will be a prize draw where winners will be drawn from participating community members that week. The more ToneADay points you have for that week, the more ballots in the draw you will have.
Be Invited into Campaigns
In addition to weekly prize draws, top community members will be invited to join Campaigns and rate a group of words or phrases for a $0.02/word. Campaigns will happen on a regular basis, however they will be invitation only. Taking your time and providing sincere ratings will improve your chances of being invited into a paid campaign.
Remember: Accuracy in your review is critically important to the success of this project. Please take your time. Spammers beware! We monitor continually for outliers and abuse.
