Community Standards & Forum Rules - 2020


Recommended Posts

I see that some of the amendments from the original have been included in this new version (2, 3, and 7), but what about the things not addressed? (1, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9)

Can we still point these out to users, even though they’re older?

A lot of those other “provisions” have been covered in the updated Community Standards and thus are not called out specifically as an additional “forum only” amendment (eg: Hate Speach is covered in the Community Standards).

Others have been combined (eg: “cross-posting” from old number 1 is not listed in new number 8).

So just to clarify, is it preferred to bring back old threads regardless of the age of the original post if it’s the same subject?

Sorry, I see you said mentioning the old thread is best. So when we start a new topic or thread I mean, should we put a link to the old thread, or mention the title of the old thread?

Some of us are less experienced on Fiverr than others, and when we unwittingly go against them it would be useful to have this pointed out in a civilised way, rather than with an aggressive email threatening suspension of your account. You have a lot to learn in terms of customer service.

Walter you should read the ToS before selling on here.

Rather than expecting leniency when breaking the rules, try to not break them in the first place.

Easy - peasy.

Hello, we hope that no one unwittingly goes against the rules.

That’s why it’s vitally important to read the Terms of Service and the forum rules and if you don’t understand anything in them come to the forum and ask about it.

The rules are easy to understand and easy to follow. And fiverr considers all of them important, to the point that they don’t go easy on anyone who violates them.

When you registered on fiverr you signed a document that you read and understood terms of service. If you didn’t read them you shouldn’t have signed it.

Fiverr even made it a mandatory step and it’s not their fault that you just decided to skip it without reading and just tick a box.

Not knowing the rules doesn’t make you exempt of punishment.

@mjensen415 This is great and all but I just don’t see newcomers to the forums adhering to any of these. Have you considered making it mandatory for new members to read through the forum rules before posting?

Sweet cherry coke this is needed so badly. Out of the front page posts, only 3 weren’t asking the same thing.

@mjensen415 To add to this, when are the changes to muted/non-muted channels going to come back where we can customize what we want to see and ignore the rest?

Seriously. Please tell me this is coming back soon.

Use your best judgement. If you’re adding to the same thought, it’s ok continue an old thread. This is why “suggestions” will pop up next to the compose box for a new thread. If you’re bringing in a new perspective, you could reference or mention the older thread in your topic. There is no hard rule for “less than one year old” or anything.

Mentioning the old thread, then updating your topic with new information would likely be the best way to go about it if you’re not sure.

Bookmarked it. Coz I’ll be sharing it often. 😁
