The contest rules say "AI Art Image(s) of the winners will be featured on Fiverr’s social media and email channels". Does that include the Fiverr forum?

And if so, does that mean that the Fiverr forum rule 8 that disallows AI generated content might be amended? or will it only be allowed in certain forum sections?

Thanks. Though is the Fiverr forum rule always going to say "8. Post original material that is not AI-generated....", even though Fiverr's community standards says "Fiverr embraces the use of new technology and allows content generated by users with the help of generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools and programs. " and Fiverr allows AI content on the main site and in the verticals it allows others to "share tips, techniques, and inspiration" and in My Fiverr Gigs allows them to show their gig images and examples but if no AI content is allowed on the forum won't that be biased against sellers in the Fiverr categories that offer AI generated content?

Also couldn't allowing AI content on the Fiverr forum (in certain conditions) be useful and helpful for sellers (and maybe Fiverr too)?

ie. could the Fiverr forum rule 8 be amended to allow AI content under certain conditions (where those conditions are shown in that rule section)?

I mean could rule 8 be amended In this rules section if possible?  https://community.fiverr.com/forum_rules/

That's really amazing news, but I wish the Fiverr could arrange the contests for all the categories being offered on that platform so that different sellers could have the opportunity to showcase their talent in their respective fields as well.

The idea is to prevent the fully copied Chat GPT posts on the forum

Thanks. Also would Fiverr allow AI to be used to help with or do translation & transcription (eg. if Fiverr does a video talk and the whole talk is in a foreign language but it would be informative for Fiverr users if they could understand it (even if they only understand English), would it be okay to translate the audio for that to English text for forum users with the help of AI?).

I hope they do. I'm not sure, so don't take my word on this, but I believe they do this kind of contest to do quality screening. Makes sense to get to know what unknown sellers on the platform can do or see who is the dominant seller to which to send the best work to. I'm going to try even though I probably won't win, it will at least get my name around. I would suggest you do the same.

Rule 8 does allow for said conditions.

A simple "I put your post into ChatGPT and this is what it gave me" at the head of the post disclaims that it's not official, not the poster's own words, and cites where the content came from.

Thanks. I'll do that then if its with some type of AI, though it might be clearer for people if this:

Quote

Post original material that is not AI-generated. If you post information taken from the Fiverr site or other places, cite its source

was reworded a bit (since it could be read that AI content isn't allowed but other info from other sites is allowed if it's cited, so maybe some wording to say that AI content is allowed as long as it's cited would help forum users understand more).

Here's a suggestion from perpexity.ai (edited by me):

Quote

Original material is encouraged on the Fiverr forum. If you post information taken from the Fiverr site or other sources, it must be properly cited. This includes AI-generated content, which can be posted as long as you have the necessary rights to the content and cite the source.

or maybe:

Quote

Original material is encouraged on the Fiverr forum. If you post information taken from the Fiverr site or other sources, it must be properly cited. This includes AI-generated content, which can be posted as long as the source is cited.

[maybe with something about any quoting from other sources needs to be okay with copyright law, though they'd normally allow for quotes as long as it isn't too much]

In the above version I assume the source could be listed as the AI language model used (eg. GPT-3 or GPT-4 or other) or the site/app used if relevant (eg. perplexity.ai or chatgpt).

I'm also curious about this. I'm no artist, but I'm a web developer. AI generated content for images on my sites would benefit me and my client. This is because AI can produce high quality content in comparison to someone who is good at their area of expertise but doesn't have the knowledge or the budget to fulfill an order asking for my services. Would it be okay in the future to use AI generated content as long as we specify it to the client and is in his benefit?

As far as I know, yes, if it's communicated to the client before delivery and they agree.

You can check this like: https://www.fiverr.com/community/standards/ai-generated-content

I think that used to mention putting something about using AI in the gig description but that doesn't seem to be there now but if you are likely to use it in the gig then putting something in the gig description about it would probably be a good idea (but as long as the buyer knows).

There still seems to be a risk due to the current lawsuit(s) against the AI art companies (Stability AI, Midjourney etc) though. It would be hard to be sure that every image they created was free of copyright issues. You could do a google search for the images to reduce the risk though.

You could check with CS to ask that if it would definitely be okay, in your category if you wanted to be more sure. Another option is to create a seperate gig for the AI image generation, which was put in one of the AI art categories, so it was clearer.

Great Advice, thank you so much, I will do so

I'm not a fan of the concept of an AI art contest. Since it's algorithms creating the art, not human, it's like Midjourney competing against itself. It's almost like organizing a cooking competition where people present McDonald's burgers they've ordered – essentially, a meaningless endeavor.

In the grand scheme, AI might spell trouble for platforms like Fiverr. As the demand leans towards personalized creations, excessive promotion of AI on Fiverr could drive clients to opt for AI-generated content without any human intermediary. It's crucial for the freelancing platform to emphasize authentic, non-AI writing, art, and voice overs.

Though there's the prompts (positive and maybe negative), and the other parameters. Maybe some people might use in-painting or out-painting or other options that give it different style etc. In the competition guidelines it also says they can adjust it with photoshop (I assume they might allow other image editing software too but it doesn't say that). They might have to create lots of different generations with different parameters before it outputs the best one and might add different manual adjustments to it. They also need to follow the guidelines in the contest where they have to follow the exact brief based on one of the 3 designs in the brief (like integrating a specific item into the design in a specific way). So it's not totally like AI competing with itself.

I would like to think competition requires skill to win. Someone could spend many hours on this like you said or just some lucky people randomly generate cool looking picture at first click which midjourney is capable of. And it really doesn't show who really spent time and what was their intention. Plus there is moral, copyright problem on top of that. This competition would only show clients "Maybe we don't need fiverr anymore, maybe subscription to midjourney suffice?" kind of thing.  They should have been marketing human interaction, work with intention, experienced professionals instead of doing something like this. I don't able to understand how they don't understand AI is number one competition of fiverr right now. 

BTW I thought Fiverr bas going direction for business clients, having bigger projects, better professionals etc... opposite of old 5$ gigs. These AI thing just cheapens the platform further more.

I see it more like a TAS (tool-assisted speedrun). Fun to watch, interesting to see conceptualization of what is possible given in-game limitations, amusing in how completely broken a run can be, and while there are human minds behind the creation of a TAS, the run itself is not human, and thus a separate category. 

I have no problem with showcases, or even competitions, but an AI contest should be judged by what the human contributes, the steps the human took, the human skill, and that requires documentation.

Edit: another point of similarity, speedrunners don't own the game, they just licence the software. That runners can (with varying levels of permission, from full support to complete shutdowns) stream runs and letsplays is rather interesting, considering the legalities, and that game companies would be fully within their legal rights to DMCA all game content.

Well they added the human editing of AI generated content category. They're doing it (the AI stuff on Fiverr) because the searches for ai related services on Fiverr increased by a lot. Also if there's so much demand for it on Fiverr and and it's the future of work in general then they can't totally ignore it either.

But there are copyright risks right now. Ideally (before the lawsuits against those companies are sorted) they'd teach how to use these tools while also making sure that everything is okay copyright-wise. eg. can software x be okay to use if their data set used to train it included copyright material (that they used without the permission of the owners)? If not, they could show how it can be used with only data sources that are okay copyright-wise.
