Change (reduction) in scope:
My client has decided that he only wishes to have a custom front end. So…I am in need of customized wordpress front end (with some backend changes that go with the front end). Each page needs to have the capability of being a homepage because when they go into archive, they should retain their homepage look. The style...

“I originally hired EOSVN because of a combination of his previous ratings, % of repeat clients, and price point. Initially things were great. He was responsive, got work completed quickly, then as the project continued, he would dissappear for 4 or 5 days without notice. I might not get an update for 2 weeks. I tried to limit my reaching out to twice a week but still got no responses for extended periods of time. In the end, my client and I decided to part ways for a few reasons one of which was because this job was taking too long and they needed it to move forward. They ended up hiring someone locally.
Eosvn was very polite the entire time, he just couldn't get the work done. This was supposed to take 2 weeks, and after 4 months, it still wasn't done.
There were some changes to the scope, and I oferred to pay extra for those. EOSVN declined the extra money but again, didn't get the project done. I even oferred to pay him a lot of extra money to get the original scope completed but he still would disappear for days on end.
I decided to give him another chance since his recorded history didn't speak to someone that acted this way. I hired him for a wordpress plugin. The price was right, and he got a large portion of the job complete in no time, then he would disappear for days on end, and there would be no progress for weeks. Eventually, he told me to hire someone else because some things had come up and he is very delayed. I responded saying that I can wait, I just need to kept in the loop. He agreed, and gave me a new estimated completion date, which came and went and still no updates, no product...nothing.
Unfortunately (truly), I would have to not use him in the future. He seems to be talented and well intentioned, but has now failed me on two different projects.”
