Not sure what’s the benefit of blind review because even if the buyer is demanding, i would still put a 5* if they put 5*. Sometimes they can say “nice work…” then a few days later leave a negative review because they think they submitted a revision request but it didn’t go through the system and think that i didn’t respond.
And right now the platform is chokeful of level 2 sellers because of automatic level up for 1 & 2 so i wonder how making it easy to level up helps separate the really good sellers with those not as good.
Exactly! I advertise, so it’s pretty easy for me to get a negative review based on a buyer being unreasonable with their final result expectation. What’s GREAT is sometimes subjective… example: Sushi socks,…
I had a seller give me a 1 star review - despite my having done exactly as my gig says I would to the T - because her ad I posted - advertising socks that looked like a giant piece of sushi – didn’t go over that great with my audience…
She thought her sushi socks were a brilliant invention… everyone else, not so much…
I even have a disclaimer saying I can’t guarantee results, for this reason. But I couldn’t get that feedback removed at the time even though it was clearly unreasonable.
I find these changes positive. I hope the next ones will be the supression of the 60-day limited ratings in UI and some changes in how PRO are handled in the marketplace, stating they are just different price tier and not making regular sellers are just low quality in comparison to them. Nice the supression of the lowest rated order every St.Level, that is a nice touch, and the buyer ban option, a must have.
Great news. Thank you.
What if we feel a buyer leaves us an unjust review or a possible glitch/error and we want to leave them feedback? I am not a huge fan of the blind review. Please bring back the feedback modification form
There is only one thing sellers can do about the changes to the review system and that is to try not to care about reviews at all.
But unfortunately so much depends on a reviews… they’re almost an obsession. lol
Why care about something we are totally helpless about, that is stacked against us in some ways? It does no good to even worry about it. I doubt if I will even look at my reviews from now on.
I wish I could let go like that… life would be so much easier…
You know, you have control over your own reactions to things. This is good practice for that knowledge. Don’t allow something that is beyond your control to affect you.
Thanks Crystal… I actually need this lesson for on and offline stuff right now.
You’re welcome. I try to keep this in mind as much as possible. We are the boss of our minds. The mind makes a great servant but a terrible master.
You’re right misscrystal, I guess it’s better to just let things be now. I need to take your approach more.
Thank you so much Fiverr!!!
Here’s an idea- stop telling people they have been nominated for TRS. We already know that 99.999% of those people won’t be promoted to TRS.
Becoming TRS should be a surprise, unexpected. Getting people’s hopes up only to let them down is cruel.
About F***ing time
Yup, we are becoming Upw0rk
It’s more cruel when you get the "we’ve decided you’re staying at level 2’ message, before you get the nominated for TRS message. I’ve had this twice now. Talk about bugs…
Exactly. If Fiverr does too much, the potential for bugs increases.
These are the only messages I welcome:
- New Order
- Revision request
That’s all I need.
This is a awesome and great news. I think its helpful for all fiverr sellers.
