I needed a script written to copy a set of blog posts (including this one) to another site.
I wrote up a solid description of the task (I used to teach requirements analysis) and tried to post it to fiverr.
Unfortunately, fiverrs’ NLP decided that the task was not scripting but rather content creation.
Six rewrites enabled fiverr to miscategorize in a variety of different ways.
I eventually gave up and posted:
I need a Python script written that does what is described in the description. If I try to put the actual description here, it won’t allow any plausible category for the project.
But within 90 seconds, some has offered to write the script, so perhaps it doesn’t matter much; but I do wonder how many potential customers they lose.
