Can anyone else please confirm........
In the very small discussion window, especially when it is a long discussion I find it impossible to scroll back using my mouse wheel as it keeps dropping back to recent messages.
Using the slider on the right is a nightmare! Slide it to the top and it sits there, but you are not at the beginning of the discussion. Scroll it up a bit more and the slider drops and gets smaller. Then repeat the process umpteen times! It was so much better when we could simply click on the first page.
My customers have told me that they really dislike this new format.
Metaquotes this update was a big big mistake. Please swallow any pride and revert back to the old style. There is a saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
The only good thing is the ability for the customer to increase the time and price. Please keep that.
Does anybody actually have anything good to say about this re-design?
I do agree with you. Positive points are less steps and ability to add price/time. The design itself is not good at all, it's confusing, using too much spaces for useless things.
Hi Keith, the comments section is completely unusable if you need to check past messages with a long history.
Did you report it to ServiceDesk ?
I have now Alain.
I have had this reply from service desk...
We are sorry you are having troubles with navigation over comments in the new Freelance design. We will try to make this more convenient by adding pages, our developers have been already assigned with this task. However we cannot tell you the exact date when it will be implemented.
so it may be good soon with some luck.
opinion is one of the customer:
I second that opinion, plus that the reviews now are not as useful since there will be no access to it due to the fact that customers and developers will not exchange information according to the new rules
The reviews can give rise to the star ratings, but the star rating alone doesn't mean much since the reviews explain why should/shouldn't i chose a developer
sorry for bad english
sorry to say u sir , but your previous freelancing layout was awesome , fantastic , great ....this new system is so much complicated
******in previous system , when someone bid on my project , i could watch from which country , does he belong , why country is important , becoz as i am more than 3 years at mql5 , i have seen russain coders and US coders and euro coders were the best , Indonesian old coders were best but not new , etc , like coders from my country i know they should not be experienced as i required , becoz no awareness in my country about EA /robots , same for some other Asian countries
******2nd major problem , when someone bid on my project , at that same page i could watch his country , his experienced , arbitration , name , image , all details , which leads me to coder is good or not
But Now , coders bid on 1st page and to comment with them i have to go on 2nd page , and many many many time , i forgot the coder with which i am working , how much jobs has he done in past ?to watch this , i have to go back again to big page , then i have to come back again to comment page , sometime more than 10 coders bids, i start negotiation with one , and when he accepted my project , after that i found it is the same person which had failed to complete my project in past , then i refused , then start negotiation with new one , but found that many times ago he didnt work well in my project ,
then again went to bid page , then checked how is experienced then came back , then talk , when i came back at evening , i just forgot , and again went to bid page to check all peoples experienced ,
so 2 pages , one of bid and 2nd for comment , make so much confuse and hard work , and irritate , while your old system had every thing at one page , that was awesome fabulous system
*****3rd in previous system there was a list of high profile coders , so i could easily select one of them which was so much experienced , becoz in this new system , i want to code one strategy into EA , i have tried with 4 new coders , but result is arbitrage or in the center of project , they said sorry they cannot do it , and it is almost more than 2 months , i am waiting for a coder which is experienced , while in past this was not a problem
******4th if u think by sharing information , it can hurt the economy of mql5 , ( means coders can give/take projects outside the site or somethine like ) in my opinion you are wrong , becoz a investor /person which want to hire someone to code a project <<< that person should always prefer to work in legel terms , suppose i work outside the mql5 after getting information , and i pay the coder 1st , coder doesnt respond me after that , or make a false project , then what could i do ? there should be no arbitation , same but opposite for coder to , both can cheat each other ... but in MQL5 nobody can cheat each other , becoz there is great team , which will deal fair , so i always love MQL5 and will always work here , another good feature is ,MQL5 has a huge verity of coders , which can offer me low pice and high quality of work , so i will never left MQL5 ,
so i will request plz update back to previous website freelancing layout thankx
Considering that it has been quite some time since Freelance was re-vamped, isn't it about time that the video
