Got the "you've been naughty" email today that states this. Anyone seen? All I've seen is 20 mins.

It looks like you’re still accepting far fewer trips than other drivers. We’re matching you with the closest rider so you can get your next trip started quickly and have less downtime.

If you don’t want to accept rides, just press “go offline.”

If you ignore 3 trip requests in a row, we will take this as an indication that you do not want to be online with Uber, and will log you off the system for 40 minutes. You can go online again after 40 minutes.
 

Hell yeah !

Little do them knuck-yucks realize how much profit they are losing by doing this. Let us decide how and when we want to work and Uber will make far more money. It truly brings light that Mr. KalaDick is not in it for the money. He truly is an evil a$$ and building up an empire that will implode. He wants it that way. When he's fired, he will go be an a$$ at another big company. Once a CEO, always a CEO. Doesn't matter how evil or corrupt you are.

It's best for drivers to select the fares. I know which Downtown and Midtown addresses are known produce troublemakers and short fares at certain times.

Hell yes. We maximize their profits at that same time we maximize ours. helloooo??!!!!

Don't need to go to Harvard to know that. They drive people to using X because many of us XL and Select get roped into short grocery runs. Theirs plenty of X cars around to meet the needs. It would drive people to pick XL and Select if all they got was X when they request.

Whoa. I delete that nonsense without reading. I'll check mine next time. Or next kindergarten time out period.

Has anybody actually lost their select status because your acceptance rate is under 80%?

I got my "love letter" from them with only an 86% acceptance rating. Still showed 20 min.
86% acceptance? Wow - you are a trooper. I got scolded again and had several timeouts handed down this past weekend. Still only 20 mins. The same email I got also only stayed 20 mins too.

Check you trip history for "actual rider cancellation" vs "Cancellation aka driver cancellation". I had uber correct several rider cancellations that were listed as cancellations aka driver cancellations.

My trip history just shows 'Canceled'.
These were rider canceled enroute.
Pings I don't accept aren't shown.

Damn. Then the 2 trips yesterday that canceled on me, and 1 today, are counted as driver canceled then. Even though I get the message saying it won't go against me.

No wonder my acceptance rating suck. :mad:

They still calculate against acceptance rate I've noticed, but I guess when it comes to any deactivation possibilities then you should be covered.

Only had 3 driver cancellations. Last week, however, I was working the day/business shift. I haven't done bar runs since last November. I found my pattern where I do better (for me) when I do days than nights. It still sucks, but at least it's a pleasant suck. :cool:
