I have received my first ‘bad rating’ and I am not happy about it.
I performed the gig in the best possible way. The buyer did not contact me for any change, correction, refund, the buyer just went straight ahead and down rated me.
I have started the process of trying to remove it and what I understand of the whole process is :
« Leave an unfair bad rating to squizz more juice out of sellers. »
From the fiver tip 1: http://forum.fiverr.com/discussion/7323/-fiverr-tips-1-how-to-remove-negative-reviews-and-ratings/p1?post#Form_Body
- you should try to please him
- Offer him some extra services/bonus »
(Try to please him ? I don’t have any pleasure gig…)
I believe this is definitely a call for unfairness, isn’t it ?
Instead of this unfairness incentive, I would like it to be counterbalanced by :
- Identification of unfair negative rating behaviour.
- Automatic and immediate cancellation of such bad rating
Also, when sellers rate buyers, this rating does not automatically appear in the buyers profile. This should be automatic.
