So on many of the Crowd Flower tasks, it tells us at the very top of the page that there are problems using the "Help" button due to the site's security certificate.  I ran in to that today.  I completed a Task for 20 cents, filled in the "code" the task gave me at the end of the survey, and clicked "submit."  After submitting the Task, I got the message that says, "You've completed all your work."  Unfortunately, I'm still waiting to be credited the 20 cents and due to the site's Security Certificate problems, I can't contact them to let them know I wasn't credited.  I even tried logging in on the Crowd Flower website, and get the same "Security Certificate" problem.

Is anyone else having this problem, too?  Exactly WHO do we contact for this crediting issue now that we CAN'T contact Crowd Flower due to their site certificate issue?

I am having the same issue. I'm not sure how we can contact them with Support being down. Maybe through Twitter?

I'm taking a screenshot of my job history from yesterday so I can try to get credit from them later. I encourage everyone to do the same!

I just did a task as a test and I did receive credit for it. But I still have not received anything for tasks completed on 3/2.

I sent in a FC support ticket today (3-3-15) to see what they might have to say or suggest.  As of today, still no credit on that Task mentioned in my first post.

Well, it was just one of the Tasks that was in my list that day.  I was qualified for it, so I completed it.  Quick way to make 20 cents.

they let me do the assingment again and this time paid me for it. so they got twice the work but at least I got paid. you know there is a blog for tasks and you can tell what is happening there with your tasks not getting paid for.

i spoke without looking to see what they credited. they paid me 1 cent for a string of 7 tasks hooked on one link. so me thinking I was getting paid for all the work I did was wrong. they paid me as if I had done one task and not 7. i wouldnt do those string tasks anymore unless you just want to give out more free work.
