As they are saying it in some of the comedy shows….call it “Superb Owl” to be free of any copyright lawsuits.
Yes, use google translate. But I will be happy to proof-read for you if you need it. Send to me on my profile page.
dvhughes saidIt’s just when buyer purchase item without any skills, unpack and try to install/start even without reading documentation, get error, becomes angry, put 1 star, write in comments – “not working!”. After few days/hours he read docs, comments, and all works, he write – “nevermind! all works now”. It’s only one explanation for me.
However, there are the strange one star ratings
This is probably more true than the idea that other authors are wasting good money to sabotage my work. But I always think the world is out to get me.
I think most people who purchase are sincere with their ratings and I take great pride in the fact that my (2) items are well reviewed. However, there are the strange one star ratings that make me wonder if other authors aren’t purposely buying and rating poorly just to bring down an items average. (I am not convinced of this, however.)
I would suggest that perhaps 1 rating from both the highest and lowest be removed before the average is determined. This would eliminate anomalies from being factored in.
I think people in general think any type of design is easy and worth nothing. I have designed and implemented several websites (but it is not my focus) but have always avoided being an official webmaster. Not just because I don’t care for that particular career, but I found that it was a colossal ass-pain. Clients would always be requesting “quick fixes” that they claimed would only take 5 minutes. And then the rate discussion would turn into them wondering why I just couldn’t just do it for free because it was such a quick fix. I finally decided that if they wanted a webmaster, than I would do it if they put me on a retainer. Like a lawyer. That went nowhere, but that was fine with me.
It is quite sad. I often wonder why clients would never consider walking into a dentist’s office needing dental surgery and saying that their budget is only $200, but have absolutely no difficulty starting a design project that way.
Yeah. I find that clients speak in code. Most don’t have any idea what they want, and will only know when they see it. Very importantly….if they mention something in passing, it means that that is what they want. You can make your reasoned argument, but one way or another…that silly giraffe they mentioned is gonna be in the logo they pay for. I tend to put my ego and judgement aside in these cases and just give them what they want, walk away and make a deposit. Good luck.
I admire your initiative. Good luck.
