I’m not sure if I can create a new thread since this is somewhat about St.Levels Day, but I’ll keep it in this category for now. (Mods, I’m sorry in advance if I’m making you guys to extra work.)
For now, it seems like I can keep my TRS. For a while I was happy, and then I found out that the evaluation is going to happen monthly. Oh sh*t, now that’s nice.
So I thought about it. What WILL happen if I get demoted to Level 2?
Will I lose sales? Well, hopefully not since I do have a good amount of good reviews, I do luckily have regular buyers, and I will still get paid.
I guess seeing that shiny badge go kinda sucks, and yes, I will have to wait 2 weeks until
I get paid, but I’m used to getting paid once a month for my main job so if you think about it
it ain’t that bad. I mean, it’s not that I lost my account or anything.
This situation reminded me of my work outside Fiverr, several years ago I was “promoted”, it was like becoming a TRS from a level 2, and back then I was very happy. The problem was I was evaluated monthly, and I was checking my rating status EVERYDAY to check if I had
enough rating, and it was quite stressful.
A few months later, I got demoted. I was pissed, I’m not going to lie. It did have an effect
on my income. But once that happened, I wasn’t checking my rating everyday like a mad person.
Plus, I still had the job.
I guess if I do get demoted to level 2, I’ll be fine. At least the payment ain’t gonna change,
and I will still have an account.
I feel bad for many people and even thought it didn’t happen to me, it REALLY makes me angry reading about sellers who got demoted due to their cancellation rates, and in many cases it was not their fault. I know Fiverr is being unfair.
However though, I’ve been living in this world long enough to know that the world is often times a veeeeeeery unfair place.
We still have gigs, we still have an account, and the demoted sellers could get promoted back to TRS again.
I’m sure a lot of people will be upset for the next few days, but I hope in the end people will
start feeling that it ain’t all that bad.
OK, let’s all grab a cup of coffee, or red bull, beer or wine, and get back to gigging.
