L33tCh4484yIt's mad how often I see this has happened... I had ran a very simple site for a company for 3 or 4 years but then they wanted to move to someone else... Also gladly gave, well just the domain over (they wanted to start from scratch) but I haven't seen their online presence since.
@rtannerf I'm still sitting on my response simply because the problem solver in me really just wants to fix it. I can't stand shit being broke.
I just wish there was something in it for me to make it worth my while to fix it. I've already been told I won't be receiving a raise at my annual review in Jan.
Haha...Please follow up how it turned out. Would love to hear more
@rtannerf you're truly right
You'd be amazed how often they don't learn anything from such experiments.... Had a client that tried to pull this off four times. Same thing over and over. We were literally laughing at their faces every time they came back begging us to fix their website. And, I have a feeling they'll try again soon because they started to question our every hour... Fun, fun, fun!
@WerewolfCustoms we have another client who wanted all his WordPress plugins tweaked just a little bit at a time to the point where now if you update them things will implode and probably 500 error the site.
He just mentioned he was thinking of going with another web team. "Sure thing buddy" I say returning customers prices should be increased by 50% every time they leave and come back. Not loyal clients who stick around, but the guys who try to jump from team to team to team trying to get their mess cleaned up for free.
