Alex, it’s good to see you 😃
I’m glad that you asked italki team about ranking and thank you for letting me, Junjun and everyone know about this.
“Some months ago it depended how often you are logged in”.
This is exactly what I noticed when I used to search for Spanish teachers. I could always see that those who logged in recently are at the top of the list and vice versa. So I never asked italki team about it because it was so obvious. Looks like this was changed in one of their new “improvements” then 😁
I’m all for improvements and to help new teachers/ tutors be more visible to students, but the idea of ranking those who offer certain slots at the top is a bit vague to me. Does that mean that teachers who open all slots 24/7 are at the top always?
Now it makes sense to me why some teachers open all slots even though when I sent lesson requests to some of them I was refused due to them being busy or at the daily work at that time 😅
I see it unfair because it’s misused by some just to stay at the top of the list while other teachers who are being completely honest about their free slots aren’t as visible as them!
Junjun, you are most welcome and I wish you the best of luck as well 🍀 Now that we have received the answer from Alex after he asked italki team about it, things are more clear to everyone 😃
