Kylabelle, I'm not sure I exactly understand the issue you were having with the Mturk tasks. If it was just a random HIT for some other person (and not write.com aka crowdsource) then who knows what it could be. I've seen a lot of HITS on there that make no sense. Sometimes people post jobs on there for specific people and you might not have access to it. But any of the HITS that belong to crowdsource should be pretty self-explanatory. You accept the HIT, choose which one you want and then you're taken to the page where you write your article.
