I can see that you're a new seller with out any level.

Buyer requests are taken from your view once 10 unleveled seller offers have been made.

You need to stay active with buyer request page so you can be one of the 10 un levelled seller for the new buyer requests.

Suddenly my account is not showing a buyer request. Do you all have this problem? Please tell

If you don’t see any buyer requests, that it may well be the case that no one has posted any new buyer requests for your gig category.

In a buyer request you can see so many sent offer already.

You don't have any level (level 1, level 2, trs).

So think there is a buyer request. so many responding to that request (sending offer)
Now when total 10 new seller (without any level) respond to that request, it will not be showing to any other new sellers.

Means as long as a buyer request don't get 10 offers from new sellers, it will be showing to all new sellers without level. When 10 done, the buyer request will not be shown to any new seller.

Don`t Worry. Maybe You Have No Available Buyer Request Based On Your Skills But Will Available Soon When Any Buyer Will Post or It Can Be Just A Bug

I haven't been a "new seller" for ages, so I don't know how they see the buyer request section, or if they can see any requests that have more than 10 replies. So maybe a new seller can hop into the request section and see if they get any requests with more than 10 replies. 

Here's a screenshot from my BR section, with a request that already got 24 offers. I'm a TRS, so maybe it's different for level 2, level 1 and new sellers?

Yes it's different for new sellers.

Buyer requests will be visible to new sellers before it receives offer from 10 new sellers.

This is just for new sellers. not other sellers with level.

I understand that fiverr began as I 5 dollar platform, but honestly, stop paying attention these buyers: "looking for a real professional, I need 98 illustrations of 98 photos for 100 dollars" yeah. If its going to be 100 for every 2 illustrations for sure, otherwise it's the same as the 5 dollars gig. People, have some dignity and ignore these requests...

I actually, most of the time, go beyond ignoring the request to actively telling the buyer they are out of their mind......... in a polite way of course. 

I'll say something along the lines of, "I highly recommend you reconsider your budget for this product.  You should expect a rate of $XXX to more accurately align with what a professional would charge for this amount of work.  While you may find someone to provide you with deliverables within your budget, it is most certainly not going to be high-quality professional work. If you would like to discuss a budget increase, I would be happy to discuss with you."

I agree with you if it was a buyer asking me directly. But I feel like the buyer's request section is outrageous most of the time. I know it wont happen, but imagine there was a filter for that.

Spot on.  The buyers request section is a cesspool at best, and predatory far too much.  I still look at it nearly daily, but only respond to maybe one a week that feels like it is a legit request.  The rest of them are more often than not.....  I don't know.......... basically prostitution.

Great answer. I said something similar to someone expecting me to translate 10,000 words for $5 😵

Now a days I am not even having a look at buyer request because haven't saw even one potential buyer in my category. People are looking to have 1000 NFTs collections in $153. I just wish we have an option to flag such people, how they can ask for 2 or 3 months long hard work at such ridiculous price.
