Up to now, I have yet to be demoted. While I’m somewhat proud of myself for navigating safely between Scylla and Charybdis on some occasions, for good planning, setting up of gigs, perseverance, etc., I’m aware that it’s not really something to brag about, as you can only influence it up to some extent. There’s a lot you can do but there’s a lot that can get in the way too, a little bit of bad luck in a row may already be enough, depending on how many orders you get and so on.
I’d surely be annoyed if I got demoted for a reason that most if not all people, buyers and sellers alike, would agree on being unfair. Else, I don’t really think about my level, unless something current comes up here on the forum. I don’t even realize when it’s level evaluation unless reminded by a thread.
And if I get demoted sometime, I hope it will be for something worth getting demoted for.
