IDEA 1 - Remove Reputation system - Provide equal Opportunity

traditional communities typically is relatively inefficient and relies on physical communication e.g. through word-of-mouth

Attempts to misrepresent reliability and to manipulate reputation are common in traditional communities.


Especially in context to India we have seen that a low rated worker keeps doing the same kind of job through the year, this brings dis satisfaction, de-motivations

The result of 2 + 2 is always 4 and judging worker who has little maths knowledge How deos a requester judge the quality of this task


For Certain task what criteria is followed in establishing a rating

  • Filling up a survey form
  • Signup in the site



Consider an example - in India reputation comes with experience, consider a real-life example, in a school there are multiple teachers teaching different subjects, but

Consider a govt organisation, where the

A low rated worker may leave the system & re-enter the community with a different identity.

Boomerang is trying to establish a relationship between a worker & requester using the following equation

  • Low rated W = Low rated R
  • Medium rated W = Medium rated R
  • High rated W = High rated R

To set the context let's take an example, there are 10 workers and all the 10 workers are equally performing good, now for a particular task, if we disclose that the output of worker A is selected then for the next set of task the requester will prefer getting it done by worker A, where as in reality worker B is equally good as A and others. Similarly, let's say a requester had posted a task of designing a logo 100+ workers came up with different concept but the requester pick up one, but he is not making a public announcement that which logo he has picked up.

The above process in a way will provide equal opportunity to all workers & requester.

  • Remove the concept of reputation system and have a neutral platform where workers come and work based on their choice. This reduces the human tendency to only look for task from requester having high ratings, not everyone can have a high rating, the question what come here is what will happen to such tasks coming from requester's having a low rating while the task being interesting, in a similar way a requester would always look for a reputed worker what will happen to other workers having low rating. Everybody wants a good boss, but if we don't get we don't quit jobs, we live with it get adjusted to it.

IDEA 2 - Offering Certificate courses & full time programs on Crowd sourcing

Our Industry runs on stamps, students passing outs from premier institutions always enjoy the extra privilege in the workplace, society, family gathering. They are always being considered to solve complex issues & bigger problems which in turn bring reputation to them from social circle, publication & media houses, Industries and educational institutes

Top Performers like first class graduates from premier institutes are always preferred as fresher in an organization. Keeping this picture in mind we introduce programs certificate courses ran by Industry experts in universities for a Crowd worker

In UX domain we have consultants coming in from different fields, Psychology, social scientist, UX designers, visual designer, but only few can reach to their dream companies, and those few are the ones who have earned degrees from Premier institutes.

Crowd Worker can get a stamp and earn reputation just by the virtue of the certificate he/she holds. He/She can name himself as a XXX certified Crowd Worker


IDEA 3 - Offering a variable pay with a quarterly payout
