I have a couple of those that I keep in reserve but I am seriously considering dropping. Humanatic is one, I can work on Humanatic for say 3 hours and not even make a $1. I think that has to be the worst. I'm really undecided with it at the minute, and have put it on the back burner while I explore other options.

Then there's DailyTWO Cents, which I'm not even sure has much traffic. It just looks very quiet there, I don't know if that's just how it is or whatever, but I don't see much interaction there, which is more my style. I like that one of the owners is very hands on, and responds very promptly to questions from writers. But I'm just not feeling it there.

Since its only clicking an ad or watching a video, it doesn't bother me at all.
Those pennies do add up very very rapidly and it doesn't take that long to just do a small task for that 1 cent.
Now if I was doing a large task for only 1 cent, that's a totally different story, I'm not going to waste that much time when I could be doing something else that is actually worth my time.

When I am working for Crowdsource microjobs that is pretty much what I am doing.  Maybe this is why I tend to stay clear there of some of their search an click jobs because these take awhile and pay no more then four cents each.  Not really worth it to me.

I will admit to doing Neobux and Bux4shares, which only pay pennies for clicks.  But these don't take that long to do and I am trying a strategy with them to see if it will pay off in the end.  Who knows for sure.  As for Swagbucks, gave up on it because I didn't see it being worth the time it was needed there.

They are not worth my time to be honest. I'm not going to knock people who like these tasks and do plenty of them, but come on you are going to have to do a lot of them to get to the payout minimum and the people offering these are gradually asking more and more of you from when these sites first came onto the market.

Plus if I do more than a few tasks on these sites they start to not be marked as paid.

Well, I post in Postloop, so I guess that fits the category, right? I used to do PTC sites too, and I got paid by 2 sites. I remember years ago, 1 ad was equal to 1 cent. Now, most ads are below 1 cent, it's discouraging, so I stopped doing them.

I still do work on small and basic tasks, specially when I've got enough time. Sometimes, I would visit a PTC site and click on the ads that literally pay you cents. When they add up, they become good money. It's much better than nothing. Anyway, I just do these small jobs when I feel too lazy to think about what to write. Not really on a daily basis.

I do do this with pay to click sites like neobux. Basically, I just do it while watching a TV show or movie or something on my laptop so I don't feel like I'm wasting my time at all

I've been doing a lot of microtasks that only pay you usually less than a dollar to complete, but it's actually already adding up pretty quickly! I have already made $6 in the past five days, and I have about 20 tasks that are waiting to be looked over by the employer to make sure I did them correctly.

I think I too may have to revisit MicroTasks, because so many people speak highly of it! I registered but got bored looking at the different tasks. The instructions seems to go on forever LOL I just need to get my head around it. I doubt I'd be bored doing those tasks because they're all varied. I hear the money builds up nicely. The only problem I have is the delay brought about by the employers checking and re-checking that the job is done to their satisfaction.

Some of the PTC sites that I've tried out have been happy to pay pennies. And to be honest, there are always people willing to take up those opportunities. Humanatic was another one I tried out but I was a bit frustrated with it in general. I never managed to reach the minimum payout level.

Is that like microworkers/clickworkers or something else? $6 over 5 days doesn't seem like a lot to be honest

There are plenty of Crowdflower tasks which only pay a penny or so and I'll complete these only as a last resort. Microworkers pays somewhat higher but there are much less tasks to complete. For example, the lowest value job I did there yesterday was copy/pasting an URL for 7c (took 30 seconds) and the highest value one was a 10 minute survey for $2.

I do. But only if I feel I can complete at least 7 or more of those tasks a minute. It all comes down to your hourly rate in my opinion. As long as a make near minimum wage, I'm happy.

I will do some tasks here and there for Mturk. But I refuse to do anything for a penny and unless it's enjoyable I don't do it. I am just trying to build my profile there but I'm not going to do things I hate for pennies. I also get on chatabout when everything is slow. I don't know how people cash out weekly on there, it takes me months.

No. I am on chatabout, but I just pop on there and do the daily poll when I remember, answer a few questions, check out some topics, and leave. I don't mind that, because it's mindless :P. I wouldn't do something that required actual work or research for pennies. I'd rather be spending my time promoting my shops or doing something else that may pay off bigger in the end.
