    Try Google Image Labeler
    Google would like to improve the relevance of its image search results and is hoping to entice you with a game

    http://images.google.com/imagelabeler/

    You may choose to be anonymous or you can log into your Google account and pick a nick name.

    "You'll be randomly paired with a partner who's online and using the feature. Over a two-minute period, you and your partner will be shown the same set of images and asked to provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. When your label matches your partner's label, you'll earn points depending on how specific your label is. You'll be shown more images until time runs out."
    It's fun (even somewhat addictive) and you are allowed to pass on an image.

    lol, they really need help. First asking people to turn in sites doing paid links and then this. And making it a game with points, but no prizes?

    Well, the experience is similar to the "thrill" of playing a word game with an unknown partner. Have you ever wanted to play chess online with an unknown partner on the web? In that respect it can be fun, but you are right: there should be prizes.

    The game would get really interesting if Google raised the stakes and promised webmasters an "up tick" -- giving a website a bump up in the search results as a possible prize for those who would keep a winning score

    [Until Google makes such a promise, I'll remain anonymous.]

    I can't help anybody that "slapped" me in the past. Plus I don't work for free

    But they are getting people to do their job for them by turning it into a game. And it looks like it's working. Of course, there might be some that play the game and think flying birds mean buy viagra or buy discount shoes online. Turn it into another game.

    "Flying birds" (if Google displays a picture of an airplane so far in the background that it looks like a bird) can mean "buy Viagra": Viagra could possibly help alleviate jet lag

    Speaking of games, Trust, are you playing "red light/green light?" Lately after one of your posts your green light indicator will turn off
