The comments below are based off of my personal opinion, experiences and observations. I am open to enlightenment if any.
From the many forums I’ve seen and my own personal experience I have concluded that the permanent star review rating system is not beneficial for sellers here on Fiverr.com, especially new sellers. This is proven especially in cases where customers have malicious intent or situations where they view 4 starts as being a high review. From my observation many individuals view customers who give 5 star review as satisfied and the 1-4 star as dissatisfied, 4 star being the least dissatisfied. In other words, customers have 4 different ways to give a poor review and 1 option for a good one. I really don’t see the fairness of having this rating system PERMANENT when there are so many variables that can tarnish a good sellers record. I do really appreciate the 60 day seller level evaluation that has not so long ago been put in place by fiverr. It so far has proven to be effective. However, the permanent star rating has proven to be a contradiction to it. Customers use the star review as a gauage to weigh there options to purchase. How can they accurately measure if the star rating system is so flawed? No doubt if fiverr values their sellers enough there will be a more reasonable rating system in the future. I do hope to hear more comments on this. Please feel free to voice your honest opinions here in a respectful manner.
