Resolution: How might we enable a fairer dispute resolution process and who's fault is it?

Common Ideas

  • Disputes in different form. A dispute can be in terms of monetary compensation, it can be in terms of work rejection, it can be in terms of bad rating given.
  • What are the criterion for down voting against a Worker/Requester - Observe him for n number of times, if he defaults, give him a negative badge, Requester should have a direct call with the worker to address his issues.
  • What needs to be done when a requester/worker is found defaulting many times - like moving him to low priority for some n number of times before making him a normal candidate again, withhold his payment.
  • What might be the ways to solve disputes - Moderator based design, Worker-Requester direct call, push them to a low priority.

The ideas differ in terms of

  • Methods either use, A moderator based approach in which the workers have option to appeal to a Moderator and follow his decision, or raise his dispute and withhold their corresponding accounts.
  • There are different perspective for the issue. What qualifies as a dispute, what to do when a dispute arises, How to solve them (Either use a 3rd party or follow down voting mechanism)



Result: How might workers+ Requester work together to produce higher-quality results?

Common Ideas

  • Involves a group collaboration of workers in method 1 and Managers in method 2.
  • Both of them increases the work of the requester in a way that there is a direct dependence between the load on requester and the quality of work done.
  • The ultimate authority lies with the requester(He can do it if he does not want a particular worker to take up the task)

The Ideas differ in terms of

  • Level of hierarchy: Method 1 has simple concept of workers who rate other workers, in method 2, complex tasks are subdivided and are assigned to Managers, Manager further handles the subdivision and assigned to workers
  • Concept of enterprise hierarchy in method 2.


Reputation: How might we design better reputation systems?

Common Ideas

  • A rating system is proposed to ensure quality work is done and how to make good workers stand out.
  • Importance is given to identify and separate skilled workers from the pool of all workers.
  • The rating system concentrates on categorizing workers based on their specific set of skills.

The ideas differ in terms of

  • The first idea envisions rating of both worker and requester. But the third and fourth idea is about rating the requester and self rating.
  • The second idea is a good option for experienced workers but is a pifall for new workers.
  • Self rating system is not reliable enough and rating given by requesters might also be prejudiced.
