After nearly six hours of work on a beast of a rewrite, the buyer claims the work was poor. Now, hold on, I know it’s possible, but…
Rewritten to 100% Copyscape, including changing the order of the categories
Removal and recasting all links so they cannot be traced back to the original piece in any way, shape or form
Removing all identifying snippets in the piece so, again, it cannot be traced back
The piece reads smoothly and flows beautifully, the same light-hearted tone as the original
I received a notification that he opened a dispute because “the quality of the work was poor.” He never specified about what, exactly, he was displeased. He simply requested a cancellation because “he’s been in the business a long time and knows I will be unable to provide him with quality work.” The feel of the dispute was odd, not personalized at all. I would expect “piece was too short” “poor grammar” or something.
Now hold on, hold on…I’m not so egotistical that I believe it’s impossible for someone to dislike my work, but this is the first buyer cancellation that I’ve ever had. Wait, maybe one a few years back?
It would be super easy for this guy to use the piece anyway, wouldn’t it?
I cancelled, obviously, and will farm the piece out to someone else to use. If he ends up using it after I do, though, who answers to the legality of it?
Talk me off the ledge, Fiverr friends!!!
I had a weird feeling when I started this monster of a piece that he would be a pain. It’s all I can do to just let the cancellation ride, but now he’s brought my completion rate down. You may or may not know, it was already down because of the number of students I had asking me to do their papers, 8 of them in a week (which Fiverr still hasn’t responded to) and at least ten over the course of a month.
I am resisting the urge to blast him via pm because at least he didn’t leave a bad rating. The whole thing just “feels” strange.
