Team OCD Milestone 6
Brief introduction of the system
In this model we are creating a unified system that would be usable for a user no matter what role they have. If we focus on giving people different roles, it becomes difficult for people to view the task from the other person's perspective. In this approach we try to improve the design by making 'task feed' more understandable and interactive. In this milestone we also suggest ways to estimate hourly wage for tasks.
Getting started on Daemo
Incentivizing requesters for accurate reporting
Sharing thoughts on tasks
Having requesters sharing their opinions about a task can be helpful because if they have a common concern it will allow them to share their ideas, ask for clarification and have the answer open and available for anyone who accepts the task. One way would be to award people with points for reporting how long a task takes but that way it would be complicated to understand what points mean and how an increased number of points affects a worker. Also, giving points is not an indicator of honesty to anyone who reports something. Another way to encourage people to share their ideas is to create an environment like Amazon where workers can write their ideas about a task and their ideas are open for public to be upvoted or downvoted. Amazon has proven that just by providing the opportunity to give feedback on products, people are happy to give feedback to each other and ask useful questions about the products.
