Since a while now, I keep an eye on the buyers requests section and most of the time, about 80% I would roughly estimate, those requests are quite generic, not specific at all to the extent where it would be impossible to provide a professional estimate and also, quite often the scope is simply unclear.
Just two of many examples:
It would be nice to be able to submit a question before sending an offer or to make it mandatory to upload a sample or reference file. When it comes to music, the final production length & genre are two very important factors which determine the scope. Right now as is, it may be a challenge for the buyer to receive an appropriate offer from someone who may or may not be able to actually deliver what is expected and for the seller there is a risk to be stuck with an order that is doomed to be cancelled or poorly estimated. I can only look at the requests within Composers & Producers, but this issue goes probably across many other categories as well. Any chance to look into this?
