Hi there, Please know that we will only review applications from people who follow the instructions below. Thank you.
This initial job is for a redesign of a wordpress website, probably through adapting the Genesis framework. We're looking for someone who can review the website, develop a vision for the site and rapidly edit existing templates to ...
Skills: css, html, php, wordpress
“One of the worst experiences I have ever had in ten years of hiring contractors. I highly recommend against working them. Below I detail what happened.
There were delays from the start. A few weeks into it I became concerned about their security procedures when I noticed they used poor passwords that were easily hackable (like "pass"). However, I allowed them to continue as I didn't want to have to start over. When the project neared completion, but the website was still not complete, they demanded payment for almost the whole sum or else they would not finish the project. I felt like I had no choice but to pay them although they had not delivered a finished product. While we were working through the last changes, the website was hacked by their own employee and my website was destroyed (along with some other websites we own). Fortunately, I was able to fix some of the damage. They refused to reimburse me for the staff time incurred in repairing the damage they had done to our websites. As we were now back at square one, with no website, I asked for a refund so that I could have another contractor create the site. They refused and said they would repair the website within 7-10 days. Again, I felt I had no choice and so I gave them chance to repair it, not wanting to start over. They kept delaying after repeatedly making promises that it would be done within days. They must have broken their promise to get it done a dozen times. I ended up giving them an additional six weeks to make the repairs they had said they would make in 10 days. Eventually I gave up hope after many empty promises and excuses for why the work was not done. I am now forced to move onto another contractor without the work that I was promised.They still will not refund my money even though they did not complete the project. Even as I write this, they still continue to promise that the work will be done, even though they show no evidence that it is anywhere near completion. I'm done. ”
“Dear All Esteemed Users On Elance,
Below we have mentioned 3 MAIN POINTS for anyone and everyone to check the actual facts and decide:
1) Soon after the project was awarded in the first go and allotted timeline we completed the job as per the instructions from the client. At the end he did not like the work which he got done as per his choice. Thus he wanted us to redo all the work, as we have always gone more than a mile ahead to make sure that all the clients are most happy. Thus we agreed to his request and also gave huge discounts. Later he disappeared for months together and soon after he came wanted all the work to complete within a day. Even till date he has not been able to even provide the correct Login to his server all the info is available for all to check the actual thing.
2) Along with that also please do see that till date he has given only 1 positive feedback, and on the other hand this is the first time we have been given a low feedback.
3) The TOP BUYERS ON ELANCE ("DGREENEMD" with $120,000/- purchased on Elance) have given us more than 25 projects in the span of few months along with many other similar buyers.
Thus I would kindly advice all the fellow providers to be aware of "PORTLANDPSYCH" as name itself speaks a 100 words for many.
