Yep that was the problem I had when I did one of these in December. That shop was the first one on my TFP list, I will never ever do it again.@jay225 wrote:
dude, i had the same experience doing the same shop with the same msc like 3 weeks ago. i edited it 4 times before it went through. before that shop(and since) i've never had to make more than one edit. the funny thing is he/she complimented the final review in the comment section. let me guess, you didn't say enough about the "signatures"?
You have to love that. Why is that the first thing that some jump to? "The shopper must be lying." How about instead asking a question to clear things up? What happened to manners?@COMystery wrote:
They accused me of falsifying a picture.
Intellishop was always picky but anything 7-10 was fine. Now there rates have gone even lower than the already former low and you need to wait forever for the job to bonus to a fair pay. Sounds like they are getting even pickier on the editing. Sounds like they have gotten too big and don't give a @#$%& about their shoppers. Email response has also become almost non existent. All their phones go to voicemail and no return calls. Don't expect to be doing work for them more than maybe 4 times a year. I also read somewhere on their site that they claim to have never lost a client.
I just performed my first narrative only shop and it was a tight turnaround. I thought I used all the proper terminology and followed the directions. I received the rudest response from the proofreader. However, they were valid on some points. BUT I edited and rewrote 3 3,000 word narratives right away!!!
They have me a 6... A 6!!! I've had only 10's at smaller companies. And also, they took points away since they had to contact me... Umm, it's their job. And was told that I didn't follow the narrative structure they wanted. If they want the same exact sentences, why not just ask questions??? I'm new there and this will kill my rating... Annoying.
I'll see if I can find out who will be proofing in the future. And skip whoever didn't appreciate my shop
BTW- another shopper was there with a NOTEPAD!!! OMG. So obvious...
