The Parrot: The forum user who keeps repeating stupid advice such as “stay online 24/7”, “stay active in the forum”, “ask for reviews”, and “share your gig on social media”.

The Anti-Googler: Creates a thread with a question that could easily be answered by using a search engine. Gets aggressive when this is pointed out to him.

The Tresure Hunter: Comes to Fiverr in search of treasure with a map given to him by a Fiverr guru. Still needs a bit of guidance, so comes to the forum with less than 1 minute read time to ask: “how can me get sell?”

The Copy-Paster: Copies forum posts made by other members to post them again later (often in the very same thread) to appear more knowledgeable.

I got the freebie only once, and when we were done I blocked him, lol.

The cheap demander: A buyer who demands “top quality work” but always asks for the “lowest price” possible. The words "lowest price " is often replaced by “best price.” In many cases they try to lure you in by saying “I’ll give you a lot of future orders.”

The Guilt Tripper: Tries to get a gig done at a cheap price by telling you a sob story about a sick family member or some charity work for sick children. While parts of their stories MAY be true, they don’t realize that asking for a cheap price while rubbing/parading the sob stories into seller’s faces are not well accepted.

Playing Dumb: A sneaky buyer who PRETENDS they didn’t read the description and tries to squeeze in extra work at the cheapest price. Once you kindly tell them they need to pay more, they either go OMG I’m sorry!! or simply snap back at you saying that you’re charging too much.

I loved the guilt tripper, I never met this yet :rofl:

The first one is similar to the buyer request moral breaker, there are often buyers like this :rofl:

The undecided: A buyer who wants something, but don’t really know what. You’ll spend more time trying to figure out what he wants than actually working on his order. The undecided impulsively contacted you and now hope that your mindreading abilities will figure out what he wants. He will often answer the seller’s question by: “I don’t know”, “I didn’t think about it” or “what would you do?”. When ask to describe what he wants he’ll often use words like “vibrant” “Eye catching” and “original”

Edit: Due to recent events I really needed to add this one.

The Mad Hatter: This Buyer often target artists. He will contact them with request that make absolutely no sens at first glance. He will request things like : I want a moon with elves as teeth bleeding out the city of Minas Tirith. Those request may scare sellers away as they may think this is a joke or a trap. But don’t be fooled, his request is legit and makes sens to him, he is just very chaotic at explaining it.

I was thinking about adding him in my list but buyers I got weren’t as lost as him.

The Undeliverables

They request revisions even just to ask a question, accepting delivery is not a choice that will ever be taken without a fight! Accepting delivery is avoided like the plague and a battle between redelivering the order and requesting revisions can go on for an eternity. The fight between the countdown and the choice is left to the “The Undeliverables” :rofl:

The NSFWs

Often found lurking in the jungle that is the Buyers’ Request section, these buyers will make anyone blush with their requests! Often harmless, they are more likely to accept offers (or find) female sellers.
Have the potential to evolve into CREEPS.

CREEPS

When NSFW FIENDS’ requests go unheard for too long, they might evolve into CREEPS. These buyers were hunt down unsuspecting (mostly female) sellers and often order services they are not likely to provide. Unlike NSFWs, CREEPS might pose danger to the seller population and should be handled with care.

(not as funny as I thought they’d be but… still realistic(?)

It might concern only female sellers, I never found nsfw requests in the jungle.

Oh the Creeps, I haven’t encountered one here yet, but they are very common outside Fiverr. Last week, a NSFW contacted me on facebook for a job, and it quickly evolved into his final form: The, oh so terrifying, Stalker Creep. The only effective creep repellant is the block button.

Sometimes I wish I could wash my eyes with bleach - but the jungle has none of that! I think they pop up from time to time, many of them aren’t too bad but I’ve seen / been messaged by a lot who were… on the creep side (I’m not going to provide screenshots here but trust me they exist!)

Oh no, the Stalker Creep! I met a few of them here - the block button is really the only way to repel them!

The Bowlers. These are actually freelancers who are always ready to bid and picking the jobs. After getting the jobs they think what to do now? 😅. Then they start to google and after a time they find a solution and completes the job.
