    I noticed that in his repsonses where he earns the magic blue diamonds that I could vote too and voted a few down with an IA, which brought it to a TFT.

    I emailed experts@.... to be thorough and I'd encourage you to as well if you haven't already. I thought, I'll look behind in the page source for how he's doing it and then thought better of it, it has to be mutual aide as only the asker can lock a vote.

    Do you think needling him helps. He seems pretty sociopathic on the surface.

    I randomly selected a few to down rate. Should take him some time to find him. And, I posted by rateing profile to admin along with the complaint fearing retaliation.

    The customers I work with for any length of time usually rate TFT not knowing any better. I guilt them by pointing out how we are not paid and don't TRY to do anything and I'd be glad to work with them no matter how long it takes. One, today, went and rated it Fixed,which surprised me as I was only wanting a Helpful which is mostly neutral when we're at 89%.

    What just pissses me off to no end is the solutions posted to people who have lost files and need them and when you get them they don't even rate.

    On another occasion, the thread had gotten too long to manage twice already. I asked them to rate it and then put in a new request to me so we'd have a new thread to work in. On both occasions they rated it Fixed when prompted, because I was going way way beyond the extra mile with them, sorry klick to you. They have a Compaq laptop built by Compaq before HP bought them out so getting the early release Bios was a bear to find and then the Asker didn't have a Floppy for their mulipurpose drive bay. This was a premium too. And, they rated that fixed too.

    Good domes with bad they say.

    No, Alex has only said that we could expect to see it. Nothing more than that. I know they are working on the site. The other day is was offline for nearly thirty minutes. Did you notice that?

    I would expect to see more soon. But, I'd like to see them put what they said last week into action and keep Masters and lower from answering Premiums.

    Staff will be busy. Guess they start in Israel on the database as I recall. Should be a bit of doing ahead of them in the morning over there.

Yer, user names pop upon his other repairs as wll. I hate liars... makes a mockery of the work we do in here to see this sort of carry on. Wonder how long it will take admin to get rid of him.... if they even bother to. They don't seem to can experts that do the wrong thing easily. Guess thy all need a second chance, but his last comment about free money being first on premiums says it all. Someone told him that or he would not be doing it.

    hehe yer I think prodding him may not
    be the best thing to do. Napalm has a much more revealing approach to
    clearing away drongos like this.

    I have used the abuse button
    to dob him, will be interesting to see if he hangs around,or at least
    tries to ride it out like ol mate Hemantrej Is it just me or am I the
    only one that can spot these guys a mile away. It would be not hard
    to clean up the expert pool, and make FixYa better for all concerned.
    I have stopped getting so foward in the lounge outing them. Tend to
    sit back and be amused by the BS they keep posting. Got a nice Sth
    Aus 2006 Merlot on the go. PW02 vat. Makes the solutions flow better
    and easier to avoid the emotions that wankers like this guy light up.

    Did admin talk more to you about moderating??

    When are they going to cull the masters? The rank 70-75% is just that. RANK! That needs a look at also.

    I only ever start jobs that i know the answer to, and the user at the other end is not a moron!! Sometimes I think the morons may possibly be better raters. I do it in bursts, done like 200 in the last 2 weeks, on holidays:), I get FixYas straight away, boost my rank, and then get wiped out over the next few weeks by TFT and HF, even though I know the advice I gave is good.

    There will always be a bottom of the bucket so to speak, and I think that FixYa are happy to let this continue. maybe they are struggling to get the expert numbers up, and are relying on building the BS bunch they have. I am sure the revenue gain is from advertising not from processing refunds and claims. I reckon that premium turnover must barely break even after the effort afforded to processing FixYas merchant claims/refunds/negotiations.

    The next big change to the system will be instigated by something having to be done YET AGAIN about the complaints from the Bank processing the credit card payments on behalf of annoyed end users that have had a cr*p experience with fixya. I see claims of fraud everyday in posts.

    Lately, I have been bookmarking Prem jobs and coming back to them after the BS crew has smeared solutions on it, hoping the end user has settled down a little bit after screening the cr*p, to then attempt to to offer some good advice,
    This one worked. It is extraordinary how bad some of the advice given is. "Gaming" is the best way to describe it. I think you may have coined that term.. It is a game to them, all intent is focussed on "scoring" NOT "Fixing" There are only a few experts that now contribute regularly to the premiums I have noticed. Think Ekse focuses on chats, but then so also do the BS gang. Benimur is a stayer, and a very eloquent one at that, but we dont see much of him in the lounge any more. ID has gone quiet. Most experts make a big effort,and then fade away, sick of the BS I honestly think.

    I had great hopes for FixYa, I really believe the model can work, and become huge, but crowd sourcing for paying jobs is failing, because of the BS, and Gamers trying to score. Tighten down the quality of the money making experts, and use the crowd sourcing model to find the real experts that are interested and REWARD them properly. this is what I could hope for.... :) Time to open another bottle. :)

    I work really hard at FixYa when I am doing it. IA for our discussion here is indicative of the losers that patrol these woods I guess.

The only instruction you need are that you must ask the cellphone carrier that owns the phone under an unexpired contract. Your carrier would be AT&T, Rogers, Orange, Wind, Virgin or whomever supplies your service.
