gig status


Recommended Posts

In all seriousness. This is a great conversation about behavioral norms and preferences. There are many ways to interact with a post. An online forum should be a place that's accessible to everyone. I try to not dictate HOW someone interacts, I'm just happy they are interacting.

It also sounds like there is an over-emphasis on "posting spam to gain a badge or rank".  I see the numbers and I can assure you this is not the case. There's no one that I can see gaming the system for a fancier badge. 

I'll post something for the larger audience about this. But a good way to think about it is: 
Ranking - Activity (number of posts)
Reputation - Content (quality of posts)
Badges - Gamification of tasks


Full transparency: I had given myself the "grand master" badge as a test to see how the ranking system worked. I'm happy to "play fair" and take those away.

PS, In no way was it my intention to be rude or dismiss @mariashtelle1, quite the contrary. Apologies to her if that's the way she took interpreted it.

That is simply not true. I can mention a few names, but it is not allowed to negatively call out users, so I will not do that.

EDIT: I can only conclude that Fiverr does not view spam the same way that its regular forum users do. Therefore, we should not expect any elimination of spam. Got it.

Or can we expect any changes? 

As for changes, yes. This has been about 7-8 months of work to get to where we are today (data migration, look, platform, etc). In the coming weeks, there will 100% be some changes to the categories, permissions, and leveling systems based on feedback and the designed "purpose" of the forum. I have referred to this launch as "seeing if the boat floats".  Making sure all of the backend systems are working and the engine runs.

Now we can turn our focus on the "how" we can find success in this shared community.

My PMs are open. Happy to discuss your perception vs the data.

The translation service of English to Spanish is also a bit perplexing to me, as the listed languages on your profile are:

Oh nooooooo, I got competition!¬†ūüėĪ

@mjensen415 If you did read all of the posts you would know that there are certain users going to older posts, especially in the New User Introduction category merely to post,  "Welcome." I first noticed it when one of the users I follow, @shadiya646first commented on an old thread to ask why the posters were reviving the old posts. The response was, "Everyone wants to be Grand Master."

 

Like @vibronxsaid, if you want a list of the user names of these people I can give you a list. Hint: Many of them have the same level of badge that I and @shadiya646have.

Hello,now a days my gig performance is too bad what is the reason for this process

It's possible that Fiver sees your gigs as low quality services (extremely low quality), so they're not shown to buyers, or are rarely shown.

but we have a number of moderators who still have the badge and sometimes take actions in silence although they have not posted anything on the forum in years. Is forum moderator supposed to be an eternal position?

Hey @vibronx who are these mods you are referring to? I am genuinely curious as I talk to the active mods all day, and to the best of my knowledge aside from the mods we all know, there are no hidden mods.

sanda5, fonthaunt, annai80 (I think she changed her name to Anna on the forum?), and sue_mcl. Last I checked they still had their badges despite not having posted much (or at all) for years. I have seen annai take actions on my posts (or threads I posted in), although she hadn't posted since 2019 last I checked.

Anna and Sue are very much active mods regardless of whether or not they choose to post on the forum or not.

 

I wasn’t aware there was a clause that dictated that mods need to actively post on the forum. I can look into it for you if it helps.

 

as for transparency when moderating I overshare all the time, but the direction coming from the admins is to not share mod actions.

I don't consider acknowledgement of a reply or a post to be "spam". In fact, just the opposite. I like seeing transparency in communication and recognition from those who are participating in the conversation.

Isn't that what the "thanks" emoji is for? So that we don't clutter the forum with unnecessary thanks that can make it more difficult to find the information one might need (if a lot of people post nothing but thanks and good tips)?

I was hoping @mjensen415would answer @catwriter's question.

Maybe we need @discobot to return the Fiverr Forum to give lesson on its proper use ūü§Ē

Please stop spamming forum with ‚Äúsema problem‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúyes of course messages‚ÄĚ.

 
Spamming on the forum will derank your gig. 

What is your concept of spam? Because the definition of spam is this: "Unsolicited email that is sent to a large number of recipients for advertising or commercial purposes" I don't think that in a discussion forum there is such a thing if a link is not shared. Although it is true that sometimes some messages are a bit annoying in the reiteration, I believe that each one expresses himself in the way he wants and / or can

for the purpose of non-commercial proselytizing, for any prohibited purpose, or simply sending the same message over and over to the same user

Forum spam is the posts that are copied and pasted from a post someone made earlier in the same thread. Or it could be a poster that posts the same two or three words everywhere, whether they are on topic or not. 

Another definition of spam I found is irrelevant or inappropriate messages sent over the internet to a large number of recipients. The Forum is on the internet and the Fiverr Forum has a large number of members.

Bueno, olvidó agregar aquí el texto completo de esa definición. Sin preocupaciones. Lo agregaré aquí 
 


con el propósito de hacer proselitismo no comercial, para cualquier propósito prohibido, o simplemente enviar el mismo mensaje una y otra vez al mismo usuario

 

Well, it is not the same message or to the same user, nor have I seen the original message for commercial purposes. I insist that we are in a forum for debates and there should be the freedom to express ourselves freely without harming anyone. For me, SPAM is something very different from what you mention

El spam del foro son las publicaciones que se copian y pegan de una publicación que alguien hizo anteriormente en el mismo hilo. O podría ser un póster que publique las mismas dos o tres palabras en todas partes, ya sea que estén relacionadas con el tema o no. 

Otra definici√≥n de spam que encontr√© es mensajes irrelevantes o inapropiados enviados a trav√©s de Internet a un gran n√ļmero de destinatarios. El Foro est√° en Internet y el Foro Fiverr tiene un gran n√ļmero de miembros.¬†

Vicky I understand what you mention but there are people who do not know the English language very well and want to be part of the community. For me, a publication should be considered as SPAM if a URL is placed promoting something but not expressing an opinion regardless of how long the message may be.

Exactly! That is the objective of the forum, to exchange opinions and experiences¬†ūüėÉ

Know of at least 4 platform users who "thread bumped" at least 14 threads that were 4 to 5 weeks old by making the same exact post over and over 14 or more times. When I asked one of them about it their answer was they wanted to be a Grand Master. So they are jamming  spamming the Fiverr Forum in order to get more points to achieve their goal. They know what they are doing.
