I have a question regarding the new review system. I understand that a lot many people have raised concern about it and most are already satisfied. I do not have any say anywhere as Fiverr won’t change their policy for me.
Having said this, I just want to get a clarification about this policy. Here is an image of 3 gigs. Just look at the number of reviews.
The first one has 1 review, the second one has 1 and the last one has 4. Does this show the real figure to the buyer? If I was the buyer, I would surely think that the last guy is the best in this lot.
However, the fact is different.
The first gig has only 1 review and it is during the last 60 days. So, it shows 1/1.
The second gig has 64 reviews, with 1 obtained during last 60 days. So, it shows 1/64.
The third one has 4-lifetime reviews and 0 reviews in last 60 days. So, it is showing 4/4.
Is this fair? Can anyone please help me understand the advantage of having this system online? I am sure 95% buyers will not bother to hover their mouse over the reviews to see the lifetime reviews. And if this is what we wish them to do, then why hide it at all?
Thanks in advance
I saw this thread and read the whole of it. I am sure this is very informative and I wish Fiverr is listening to what Juan has written. Makes sense to me - a lot of sense!
