English proficiency test as a requirement for Level 3, 4, 5 and X - What do you think?
Hi everyone, in this post i will suggest a new feature that i think would benefit the whole marketplace.
As we have Levels and Levels requirements, i think there is one more thing that needs to be added and that's a English proficiency test?
Now many of you may disagree, but let me explain why before you ask.
Firstly, i have to confess that my English is not great and i always have grammar errors, etc. as English is not my native and i actually think in another language before saying something. So before you say something like that or start going against me, please read this whole post.
On SEOClerks and all the other Ionicware marketplaces, there are many, many people that barely understand something. A lot of them are "Power Sellers" on the marketplace and not understanding English while having so much customers that rely on you is really not a good thing.
Few days ago, i had a really, really bad experience from a seller and i don't like to address or reveal who the person is as my purpose is not to ruin their ratings or something. The reason for all of that was his English.
The seller delayed the order which i now that normally happens from time to time.
I didn't get a response so i told the seller that he's late without freaking out, i just wrote a simple message "You are late." to see if he is going to answer.
Seems like after that the seller was thinking i was complaining and responded to me "have late" which i didn't actually understand what would it mean and i asked him to deliver the order as soon as possible. Which resulted in another cancellation request stating "system problem can't do this now".
I still don't understand what did this seller think of all of this, but i don't think i was treated fairly. So i decided to give him a third order which resulted in a 5th cancellation request for me. That's very mean!
As you can see above, this person didn't even bother to try to explain what the problem is and if we had a English proficiency test as a requirement for Level X and he would not pass it and i would not order. I don't know what you think, but i would not do business with a person that doesn't speak English at all or uses Google Translate while my business depends on him.
So let me know your thoughts and suggestions, do you think we should have this feature or not?
