There was a thread dedicated to this on Sherdog, but I thought I'd share it here. I did a search and didn't find anything.
I'm not sure who here has heard of ChaCha.com, but basically you just answer questions asked by random people. It can be something like, "what should I have for dinner," to "what was the score of Superbowl 35?" Your job is to basically search the web and answer these questions for people. Basically you are a human powered search engine.
The users submit there questions by texting to ChaCha (242242) and then that question is relayed to you on your computer. From there you use whatever you want to find the answer (they prefer you use the chacha search engine), copy paste, and then hit submit. You make 20 cents per answer. Basically that translates to between 7-12 dollars an hour, depending on how you want to do it.
There are no set hours to work, you just do it whenever you want. You can get paid by direct deposit, or you can request to go through a bank that they support and have it deposited on a debit card.
It's not so simple that you just sign up and start though. There are a series of four tests. General ChaCha knowledge, typing skills, and general knowledge. The last test, which I completed last night, is called the Simulator. Basically they sim test questions to you, you treat it like a real one and send an answer. After 15 questions you are done. I'm stlil waiting for my info on whether I've passed.
I've checked this out it is not a scam. You can find info on them all over the web.

If you guys want to use me as reference just PM me and I'll give you my email, although you don't have to if you don't want to. If you guys have any questions I'm gonna stick around here for a bit.
Edit: I sent a message to Ross to let him know I was posting this. If this is considered spam, just go ahead and delete admins.
Edit2: For all of you who have signed up and are not receiving queries, you need to set up your keywords. Keywords are what direct queries to you.
To set up keywords, go under my account and go to the keywords tab.
They are in the process of upgrading to categories to better sort the searches so you can set them up now, but at this time they won't affect the searches. Eventually everyone has to switch over however.
