BUG: Message disappears!

So, this is totally frustrating.

Some of my or my buyer’s messages(not the whole conversation) don’t show on the desktop site.

Sometimes I need to look back for information about the order that my buyer sent me on message, but I don’t see them, so I get stuck.

I’ve been facing this issue for many days till now. I don’t think this is for any “spam” or “filter” because the message didn’t contain any offensive/spammy things.

Although, sometimes after many times of refreshing the page the message shows up but disappears again.

Is anyone else facing this problem?

I got a notification from the app on my phone this morning, and in the notification, I could see the question of the buyer. When I clicked to reply, I could only see the name of the buyer (but not their question) and my textbox for the reply.

Later, logging in on desktop, I saw my reply, but not the buyer´s message either, and it had the “x can´t be contacted…” banner below, as if I had reported it for spam, but I hadn´t (it didn´t look like spam). There is no report button on that page either, as it only shows my reply, but not the message the reply was for.

Generally, there sometimes seem to be messages that won´t show on desktop when I replied to them via app, sometimes it´s hard to find something back because the messages are spread over order page and inbox messages since the UI update where notifications and messages got merged.

“and it had the "x can´t be contacted…” banner below

That means the buyer’s account has been disabled(most probably). The message was sent to you that was flagged as spam automatically and when a message gets flagged, Fiverr reviews it or sometimes the system deletes the message automatically.

So, my problem seems different. There’s no chance of being flagged.

Oh, I know about the spam messages, most of my tickets to CS are about that since they drop my response rate never mind which of the tips how to treat them I follow.

However, in those cases, the actual message is there. In the case I described, the message is nowhere to be found, so I thought to add this because it´s definitely a bug, and it´s a message that disappeared. Just in case any staff person reads this topic, perhaps it might be some helpful info.

I want to refference this

Fiverr, we have a problem. Chat messages getting mixed up and lost

I am here for over a 1 year. and I can’t freakin’ believe that no user or Fiverr staff didn’t notice an ENORMOUS problem with messages. If you are chatting with someone for a long time, or if you are trying to find an older message while someone is...

I faced this issue some times. But that situation buyer mentioned Website link or email id. That’s why Fiverr does not display that messages on site or app. You can check that message on Email notification if you already enable it.

That’s really a good solution to this. Thanks a lot.

I’m only one easy revision away from a final logo design but am having the same issue! My revision request messages just disappears immediately after sending. Meanwhile the clock is on me to respond to the designer! Do i just have to pay for and accept a design I’m not happy with?

I’m facing this problem right now! I replied a message from my phone and I can’t see that conversation in my inbox on desktop site.

Really annoying.

I had lost a conversation from my message inbox but when I scanned down through all the recent messages there it was. It had moved down the list of messages but was still there.

So it’s possible that you simply can’t find it and other messages that are older are at the top of the list of messages.

Same here , same issue. can see that message on phone but not on desktop. I thought it was some kind of hacking stuff at first :roll_eyes:

Disappearing chat messages continues to be a problem in early 2020. Interestingly, customer support’s response to the issue is that this is a unique problem limited to me (even though I mentioned at least one other person having a similar problem). Apparently they don’t look at their own forums… or don’t want to acknowledge the extent of the problem.
