A little rant . . .
I truly do not understand 5r’s intentions with the leveling on a monthly basis. As a buyer, when I see a 1000 review seller that is a level one - I don’t know if he/she got demoted because:
- They were a bad/scam seller who deliver awful/late work or
- They received one too many cancellations - “ordered by mistake” or
Then there is the" 4 stars are good review" - as indicated all over the forum, yet - if the seller can’t maintain a 90%, then it’s demotion time for them.
So, unlike last year when I can filter seller for level as a mean for experience, it really means nothing to me at this point.
5r still have some TRS, who do atrocious work and they are still TRS from the old days - when they gave it away for seniority. There are TRS here who should really double or triple their price - even at that, it’s still a bargain. Then there are TRS here where I find the $5 order to be too expensive - they shouldn’t be selling anything.
I am still finding it hard to trust 5r’s ability to hand-pick top sellers when the great/talented ones are in the same bucket with the less than optimal ones.
