  1. Can’t upload and deliver my order, its not nice to have such a dependency to third party services

    its not nice to have such a dependency to third party services

    FYI - Most of the internet relies on AWS and “third party services”. Amazon S3 is used by around 148,213 websites, and 121,761 unique domains.

    favicon.icoVentureBeat – 28 Feb 17


    AWS is investigating S3 issues, affecting Quora, Slack, Trello (updated)

    Cloud infrastructure provider Amazon Web Services (AWS) today confirmed that it's looking into issues with its widely used S3 storage service in the major us-east-1 region of data centers in Northern Virginia. Other services are affected as well.

    @esodot - I’d love contextual product updates! Maybe sometime in the future.

    @rainny_writer - Yes, I will update here too. Facebook and Twitter will be the quickest most real time updates.

  2. Oh hey Matt, haven’t seen you for a while.

    Any ETA on that uptime? I have some deliveries primed to go…

    Oh hey Matt, haven’t seen you for a while.

    I’m always here.

    OK, that’s not true. I was gone for a week on vacation. 😄

    No word yet on the timing. We’ll let everyone know ASAP. As for orders @misscrystal & @cybercube - if you miss due to the outage, please contact support and they can work with you.

  3. seeing as I can’t show you the image this person sent to me I will explain.

    ADMIN EDIT - removed description. -MJ

    seeing as I can’t show you the image this person sent to me I will explain.

    I’m going to take down the explanation. We can all agree that it is bad and trust that it was horrific with out details. I truly apologize that you experienced this from a seller on the marketplace. Those experiences are never what we want and will continue to ensure that marketplace transactions are safe for everyone. Customer Support will take action on the ticket and if there is anything that we can do here on the forum, please let us know.

  4. It looks very pretty Matt, but I see no blog of the biggest news that hit Fiverr in all of its history, AKA the “event”.

    PS “the do list” made me laugh, but I’m British, and at least where I come from, to “do” someone is to you know nudge nudge wink wink say no more guvna.

    According to PDP, it seems that someone in HQ was OK with the whole thing but insinuated the “higher ups” were not, which was why stuff happened. Why not leverage him and get HIM on the blog?


    Or you can just feature more house buyers. I know which I’d prefer! Or I could submit my own account of events, but as I’m 99.99% that will get nowhere, I won’t bother. Also, I don’t have 50m followers, to my eternal dismay.

    • Style: This thing is on trend

    Just one final point. “on trend” is passe. You have to say “on fleek” now. Fiverr is still your sad uncle getting jiggy on the dancefloor and being a mortal embarrassment when trying to be down with the kids:

  5. Hi all,

    I am thrilled to introduce you to our brand new, Fiverr Blog: The Do List!


    Details you say? Here are just a few of the highlights of The Do List at launch:
    • Intuitive Interface: We, as marketers, believe that a great blog should be so easy to use that we no longer need any development resources to edit, optimize and make changes.
    • Mobile Optimized and Developed for Speed: An entirely new architecture for mobile devices, with automatically adjusting pages and content to create an extraordinary user experience.
    • Live Social Counter: Displaying all of the social network activity in a beautiful way!
    • Style: This thing is on trend. Take a look, tell us what you love, what you want more of, and promote it in your networks as you see fit!

    Check it out! We’d love to know what you think of the new style as well as what you’d like to see (content wise) on the blog.

    Welcome to The Do List!

    I’m playing the forum admin card on this one since it’s an official Fiverr campaign and video. 🙂

    Blog post from Fiverr CEO, Micha Kaufman:

    In the nearly seven years since Fiverr was launched, we’ve built something special: A community of millions spread across 190 different countries, posting over 10 million Gigs, and buying over 30 million services.

    We’ve taken great pride in helping talented people find an outlet for their skills and create personal brands. We’ve helped entrepreneurs build small businesses from nothing, democratizing services that never would have previously been available to so many. And we’ve given countless freelancers the opportunity to pursue their real passions and create a life they want rather than the one their demographic, geographic, or social standing would traditionally dictate.

    If you think I sound like a proud parent, you’re right. In fact, I’d often find myself half-jokingly looking up what to expect from a 4, 5, and 6-year-old each of the last few years. So, what should we expect from a 7-year-old?

    According to our friends at BabyCenter, “Sevens are delightful to be around. They’ve shed a bit more of the neediness and uncertainty of younger years, and bring enthusiasm and curiosity to everything they do. Sevens tend to ask lots of questions, because they’re keen observers with a big need to know about everything.”

    After 10 million Gigs and 30 million transactions, I’d say we’ve shed much of our uncertainty, but our enthusiasm has only grown. We’ve asked a lot of questions, and we know quite a bit about the world the Fiverr community lives in.

    It’s a world where all of us are asked to do more with less, working longer hours with more competition for the same opportunity. It’s one that asks each of us to do whatever it takes, because that’s exactly what our businesses need to succeed. We call it the age of the lean entrepreneur.

    We’re the ones who get it done. It’s that emotion and identity that’s given us the inspiration behind “In Doers We Trust.” Not only is it a true embodiment of the Fiverr ethos, community, and brand, it’s at the core of what makes so many beyond just our community tick, and I’m excited to share it with all of you.


    It’s a label that few of us have ever given ourselves, but it expresses so much about what we stand for. It’s a role we should claim proudly, and that includes celebrating the ideals of lean entrepreneurship in both real and digital communities beyond our own. From social hubs like YouTube and Facebook to mass transit commutes in some of the U.S.’s biggest cities, we will salute the attitude and impact doers, freelancers, creators and makers have on the world. Anyone engaging with Fiverr will feel a renewed focus and connection to these ideals, starting here.

    Have a look. Poke around. Stand up and be counted. Throw feedback our way. We’ll be listening.

    We know success is earned not through talk, but through action, so we created a community of people specializing in getting things done. We believe everyone has a right to succeed, so our marketplace is open and accessible to anyone. We believe in trust and quality, so we built a safe and intuitive product for the passionate people and businesses who strive to be the very best.

    We know that doers are at their best when they’re doing, so Fiverr’s experience allows creativity and productivity to grow for freelancers and entrepreneurs, both on the marketplace and in the cities you call home.

    My commitment to all of you is to continue building a marketplace that will enable lean entrepreneurship so that all of you, and anyone else who is willing to pour sweat and tears into their work, can thrive in this new economy.

    But it’s a two-way street. As a community, don’t ever stop pushing, growing, and evolving. Keep hustling and keep grinding each day to make it more productive than the last.

    Simply put:

    Wake up every day to get shit done.

    We’ll help you do it.

    What do you want to DO this year? Tell us in the comments below!

    If we get enough VOTES, then @twistedweb123 will present it to Fiverr for this additional update.

    Fantastic little update, looks like it was a requested feature and it got granted.



    Kudos Fiverr!

  9. We are introducing new “user levels” can earn for viewing and participation. The higher up you are, the more you can interact with others in the forum and the more features open up. There are 5 levels of participation: Level 0 (New) → Level 1 (Basic) → Level 2 (Member) → Level 3 (Regular) → Level 4 (Leader).

    New (0)
    New users coming into the forum need to earn the trust of the community. Most likely they are visitors who just created an account and still learning the community norms and the way the forum works.

    New users will have limited access to post but can read most all posts. There are fewer interface options to make it less confusing for new users, and we will gradually introduce new functionality you get more experienced. Thus, new users’ members are restricted for safety – both theirs and yours.

    Users at level 0 cannot…

    • Send private messages to other users
    • “Reply as new topic” via Link button
    • Flag posts
    • Post more than 1 image
    • Post any attachments
    • Post more than 2 hyperlinks in a post
    • Have actual links in the ‘about me’ field of their profile (will be silently and temporarily converted to plain text)
    • Mention more than 2 users in a post

    Basic (1)
    If a user sticks around long enough to read a bit, they earn the trust of the community and open up some basic user functions.

    You can get to level 1 by:

    • visiting at least 5 topics
    • reading at least 30 posts
    • spend a total of 10 minutes reading posts

    New features opened up at level 1 are:

    • use all core forum functions
    • Upload images and attachments if enabled
    • Edit wiki posts
    • Flag posts
    • have all new user restrictions removed

    Members (2)
    Members keep coming back to the site, and have participated long enough to earn complete citizenship.

    You can get to level 2 by:

    • visiting at least 15 days, not sequentially
    • casting at least 1 like
    • receiving at least 1 like
    • replying to at least 3 different topics
    • visiting at least 20 topics
    • reading at least 100 posts
    • spend a total of 60 minutes reading posts

    Users at level 2 can…

    • Use the “Invite others to this topic” button for one-click onboarding of * new users to participate in topics
    • Daily like limit increased by 1.5 ×

    Regular (3)
    Regulars are the most active readers and reliable contributors over long periods of time.

    You can get to level 3 by:

    • This is time and activity based, unlike the previous levels. In the last 100 days.
    • must have visited at least 50% of days
    • must have replied to at least 10 different topics
      of topics created in the last 100 days, must have viewed 25% (capped at 500)
    • of posts created in the last 100 days, must have read 25% (capped at 20k)
    • must have received 20 likes, and given 30 likes.*
    • must not have received more than 5 spam or offensive flags (with unique posts and unique users for each, confirmed by a moderator)
    • must not have been suspended
    • These likes must be across a minimum number of different users (1/5 the number), across a minimum number of different days (1/4 the number). Likes cannot be from PMs.
      All of the above must be true.

    Unlike other levels, you can lose level 3 status. If you dip below these requirements, whether from flagging or the passage of time, you will be dropped down to level 2, Member. However, to avoid constant promotion/demotion situations, there is a 2-week grace period immediately after gaining Trust Level 3 during which you will not be demoted.

    Users at level 3 can:

    • recategorize and rename topics
    • access a private “frequent flier’s lounge” category only visible to users at trust level 3 and higher
    • have all their links followed (we remove automatic nofollow865)
    • spam flags cast on TL0 user posts immediately hide the post
    • flags cast on TL0 user posts in sufficient diversity will auto-block the * * user and hide all their posts
    • make their own posts wiki (that is, editable by any TL1+ users)
    • Daily like limit increased by 2 ×

    Leader (4)

    Leaders are regulars who have been around forever and seen everything. They set a positive example for the community through their actions and their posts. If you need advice, these are the folks you turn to first.

    The only way to get to level 4 is by manual promotion by an admin.

    Users at trust level 4 can…

    • edit all posts
    • pin/unpin topic
    • close topic
    • archive topic
    • make topic unlisted
    • Split and merge topics
    • Daily like limit increased by 3 ×

  10. We’re working with the vendor on the migration. We have been promised 48-60 hours. I announced a “Monday” opening which is on the far end of the estimate. Hoping for earlier though. 🙂

    Glad you’re excited! We’ve been playing around on the test instance for a while now and besides the obvious UI changes there are some fun new features that were lacking on this platform.

  11. Yes, there will be a feature to follow a thread that you’ve commented on. You will get notifications (your choice of email or in-forum) when someone replies.

    As for the retaining posts, yes! When investigating other platforms (which we’ve been doing for a few months) that was one of my requirements. There is a lot of great info and conversation here in this forum and I would not want to start fresh.
