Now this hasn’t happened to me yet personally, but I could see this as being a huge problem going forward as a voice talent. I’m sure other voice talents and even other animators and designers may have the same problem. (Correct me if I’m not understanding the system).
But I think there should be a way to ‘turn down’ an Order from the start, if an order is just completely out of line with what the Seller is offering. Let the countdown still start, but if the Seller looks at the new order and it’s not within their ‘requirements’ or ‘talents’… I think there should be an “ACCEPT” or “DENY” the order in the beginning so that they can turn the order away if it’s not acceptable with what they are actually selling, and what is advertised.
For example, if someone makes an order from me and says, “I need you to sound EXACTLY like Morgan Freeman when you read this”. Then when I get to that order, see that, and it’s obviously completely outside my voice range, I then now have to go through the process of telling the client “No, I cannot do that (explain why)” and then mutually cancel, which effects my stats.
If there were an ACCEPT or DENY button, it would make this process much easier and the process wouldn’t effect the seller’s stats. NOW, having saif that… if the Seller ACCEPTS the project and then wants to cancel after pressing that “Accept” button, THEN it would make sense that the client&seller would have to mutually cancel.
The “DENY” button, when pressed, would then be buttoned with a reason that the seller could click on explaining why they denied it.
