I wonder what the capital of Thailand has to do with the erotic romance books Smiley Very Happy

 

This is a good indicator of the different treatment that freelances and clients get.

To be a top rated freelancer one must follow zillion rules and worship the clients, whereas to be a top client one must do nothing. I love how we are all equal.

The Thailand thing is a test question to see if the freelance read everything.

I know Robert, I was being ironic. Smiley Very Happy For me these “checks” are nonsense. Of course I would read the post if I want to apply for the job. I wonder if the clients go through the trouble of reading our cover letters. By reading several posts on this forum my guess would be that most of them don’t.

Oh, sorry about that.

 

But to what you mentioned, I have a client now who actually told me I was the only one who read the job post. To be fair, his job post was a few paragraphs long and did have some tone of formality so I can imagine why people wouldn't bother reading.

There's probably some $2.50/500 article mill somewhere on here with a little trophy saying:

 

Iridium tier: one of the greatest clients in the entire world

 

God only knows what bronze tier clients must be like.

LOL@$7650 total dollars spent (over 33 freelancers!), which is a whooping $760 in fees or $232 per freelancer, qualifying as platinum tier...

I edited one of these when I first joined, the last thing I'd describe it as is erotic Cat Sad

 Ramon, that may say more about you than the book Smiley Wink

Hi All,

 

Note that I had to remove a few comments from this thread as they were off topic and contained some controversial remarks.

 

Thank you for understanding.
