I was top rated one whole week this is ridicules. I have 17 jobs finished and 3 in progress my feedback is 4.97 and I have more then 1500 hours on oDesk, also my earnings are more then 1000 USD- per month in the last 12 months.


Its ridiculous because I had a contract and I was top rated but the same week we decided to end it and I am 100% sure my client was satisfied like he left me a 5.00 feedback I worked more then 6 months for him and he never had any issues with me and as soon I quit this job a got a new contract with a new client so why is my success rate now 88% I really don't get it. 


And one more question I am confused, when I am applying I am always checking like every serious freelancer the past jobs and freelancer ratings about the client and I get very angry and avoid to apply to jobs when I see that a freelancer worked more then 500 hours for a client and he leaves him a comment "good job" but gives the freelancer 1-3 star rating, I mean if he didn't do his job well why didn't you end the contract sooner? 

 Zemi I hope you get some   valid explanation for the this drop in Job success score. I seams beyond any logic that your client  while leaving perfect feedback plus great comment about your services would have left negative private feedback. To me it seems like yet another Job Success Blooper

You can see many other contractors voicing their concerns and issues about not justifiable JS scores

Oh well, it seems that I'm not alone - the same story: "You're Top rated", few jobs finished without any complaints, JS goes down, I'm not Top rated anymore, support's explanation - it counts 24 month frame and private feedback. I was registered less than 24 month ago, I can't believe that all this happens due to negative private feedback only. As other noticed - almost no response from clients since connects got in action, even people who contacted me have disappeared.

You know what? Stop fixating on a green badge for which nobody understands the metrics...I have come to believe not even CS or the mods understand it. Instead, focus on doing the best you possibly can, and keep your eyes on the dollars.
