I am not satisfied with the oDesk feedback calculating system. I think it should be per job not base on the dollars earned by a job.
By this method, a single client can spoil your entire feedback score like happened to me.
I have 4.62 feedback score for 14 jobs but my last client spoils my whole profile by giving me 2.25 feedback score ( because i earned the most dollars from her). My feedback is now 2.92 only. My job quota also reduced.
We worked for 4 months together (368 hours) without any problem with each other. She wants to add more responsibilities but when I ask for pay raise with that as well, she refused, although i learned and worked more for her then the other contractor who got a pay raise in just 3 months. I also helped that other contractor a lot. But she didn't agree to give an increment. She reduced my hourly limit to ZERO but didn't end contract. So I ended the contract then she left a very bad feedback. She wrote such lengthy FEEDBACK COMMENTS. If she had so many issues with me then why she kept me for 4 months?
That destroys my whole profile.
I am so frustrated today. It took months to maintain a good feedback score but a single client can destroy it because of this DOLLAR calculating feedback system.
I talk to customer support but as usual they can't do anything.
Anybody here, who agrees with me, please reply?
