I quite agree. But I won’t hold my breath. I have also given up on fiverr becoming transparent in making defined and measurable requirements for Top Rated Seller. Imagine any sales organization, say a real estate office, where all the sales levels are defined except that elusive “Diamond Level”. That’s secret and hand picked by management. No one would stand for it. In fact the speculation about how you “earn” it would be interesting.
Should be clear and measurable whether by sales, orders completed, whatever. But the fact that they won’t make it measurable leads to a sense that there is an inside track some have access to and others don’t. Imagine the real estate office again and announce, some of you get paid every week, and others every other. And the requirements to get paid weekly are secret and hand picked. In an office like that it would be an amazing morale killer, here it’s just a fact of life that some sellers get their pay in a week and others wait 2 weeks, and the way you earn that is secret and hand picked.
