I still provide the same caliber of work, if not better because the more one writes (or does what they’re good at), the better they get. Or at least I’d like to think so… XD But within a month, I’ve managed to get two 2ish-star reviews and three 3ish-star reviews. Luckily, one of the 2s got changed to a 5 (they simply didn’t understand the system and initially thought I was withholding their delivery even though I wasn’t) and the other client changed it to a 4 after receiving her free revision that she forgot to ask for before rating.
Long story short, I have worked on fiverr for two years straight and only received one 1.2-star review and very few 3 and 4 star-reviews. So you can imagine that I’m baffled by the low-rating frequency within just a month’s time!
I’m still at a 4.95 overall rating (99%), so I’m not here to complain exactly. I’m simply wondering if anyone else has noticed this. Or maybe it’s just been a rough month for me for whatever reason. Who knows!
I’ve also noticed that cancellations initiated by buyers is on the rise. I keep on getting “Ordered by mistake” or “Accidentally ordered twice.” I hope those don’t hurt my ranking too much.
