they always seem to want the same “clean, minimalistic and modern” website and ask you to use your creativity, just so they can tell you later “yeah this is not what I had in mind”
“Clean and spacious” attracts the user. A “colorful jungle” attracts the client. Then once they realize the users are experiencing super slow load times and embedded Youtube vids take forever to show up they come back to you asking to make the website clean again. Even when we’re RIGHT, they can NEVER be WRONG…..
DIFFERENT DESIGNER, SAME STORY
When they ask for a specific color scheme for the whole project, and on the last day when everything is done, they decide “we should experiment with some other colors”
You might want to hit me up through my profile page in this case so this can be looked into asap. Posting about it via the forums, rather instructs others on how to achieve this. As such your previous post was flagged.Thanks!
I did not name a person or item or even pointed to anyone was talking in general. But to be completely honest I don’t mind you flagging my post since I guess I could have figured that will happen. If it can prevent things like that from happening, then it means it was for the “greater good”
I would love that Envato takes a bit deeper look into refunding people. Like make a quick check if they downloaded the item before they requested a refund or similar.
Anyway, my apologies.
Wants a rushed product/service and expects 1 month of work in 2 days.
Does a lot of small talk over the phone as if they’re the big shot of their industry.
Has a whole staff of people that you’ll never meet and wants a # of revisions that makes you wish you had a team to fall back on.
When client something doesn’t like he rates 1 star, but once everything is fine there is two ways: doesn’t put any ratings, or just comment like: Everything Works. Thanks.
And I’m like whaaaaat.
i hate when client ask for some work to do and when we ask for credentials for hosting and ftp.
he is like we said some alien language to him. then our boss in company tell us that explain everything to him. and when we explain everything. he is like i don’t know what is hosting and all this.
so after that we just ask than how your website is showing up in browser? just explain that. he says his previous managed everything.
so when we say then please ask for these credential to them. he says fine.
now after 5 days he come up and ask for work progress. and i was like what work? and even my boss force me that say sorry and i was like sir why sorry because he didn’t mention any work and didn’t provide any credential. so on 5th day he explain that his previous developer gone AWOL.
so now i was like what i can do about that. and later he keeps poking to my boss and my boss was really angry on me and say that do his work.
after these kind of experience i feel like i am really alien and whole world dont understand me..:(
