What's the big deal? How do you expect the badge to improve your life?
I'm actually pretty well irked about this. The badge itself is nonsense. But the way they are rolling it out is creating false and baseless differentiation among TR FLs that could wind up costing someone a lucrative opportunity, for no good reason. I can't see any possible excuse for it, nor any business case for doing something that's clearly disruptive, even on a small (or non-detectable) scale. I have to assume it's more madcap fun with algorithms, taking UW further away from supporting the transactions and interactions that are the true foundation of profitable contracting (for clients and FLs) and farther into the realm of "let's see what happens when we do this". Sometimes, it feels like a flock of toddlers has locked themselves in the control room with a case of juice boxes and a bushel of cheerios. They're not coming out any time soon.
Today, one client didn’t hire only because she felt more comfortable hiring someone having the Verified badge. She felt more secure to hire him.
She had no doubt of mine expertise but the badge become a issue.
A freelancer with the badge got the job, though he have only worked on 13 jobs and 2k income.
And me didn’t got it, who have done 105 jobs 30k+ income.
Why? Because, I don't have the badge!
And so, ID Verified badge has become an important issue, that's why I posted here.
And freelancers like me are raising their voices, shouting over here.
