  1. I’m playing the forum admin card on this one since it’s an official Fiverr campaign and video. 🙂
  2. This topic is now a banner. It will appear at the top of every page until it is dismissed by the user.
  3. 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. Doer. 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! https://www.fiverr.com/in-doers-we-trust
  4. Still looking into it. Response times are slower due to the holidays. Thanks for your patience!

  8. 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 buttonFlag postsPost more than 1 imagePost any attachmentsPost more than 2 hyperlinks in a postHave 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 postBasic (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 topicsreading at least 30 postsspend a total of 10 minutes reading postsNew features opened up at level 1 are: use all core forum functionsUpload images and attachments if enabledEdit wiki postsFlag postshave all new user restrictions removedMembers (2) Members keep coming back to the site, and have participated long enough to earn complete citizenship.

You can get to level 3 by: This is time and activity based, unlike the previous levels.

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 topicsaccess a private “frequent flier’s lounge” category only visible to users at trust level 3 and higherhave all their links followed (we remove automatic nofollow865)spam flags cast on TL0 user posts immediately hide the postflags cast on TL0 user posts in sufficient diversity will auto-block the * * user and hide all their postsmake 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.

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

  9. You want me to tell you or do you want to be surprised?
  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.
  12. Thumbs up only, or “like”. More along the lines of Twitter & Facebook vs Reddit.
  13. @djgodknows - Yeeaaaaaa… AND this is part of why we’re upgrading the platform. Should be fixed now!
  14. As you all know, the forum has been…challenging lately. From overall stability to posts disappearing, there has been an overall decline in the stability of our forum platform. With that said, we’re going to do something big to fix it. We are migrating and making a switch to a new platform that will offer not only better stability but improved features and new experiences! #winning On Monday, we will launch the new and improved forum. We’ll retain all of your old posts, links, post history etc. The major change you’ll notice will be the overall look plus a few fun additions to your profile. We appreciate your patience in this process and as always please contact support@fiverr.com for any customer support-related needs during this migration. I know you must have questions. Please leave a comment and I’ll answer it below!
  15. Hi @debored - Matt from Fiverr here. I’d love to chat with you about your experiences on the site. Is it ok if I email you?
  16. Hi Everyone! We know sellers provide great work daily for clients, both big and small. For those of you who have had a chance to work with some bigger brands, we want to hear from you! What kind of work have you done and for what clients (if you can share)? We’d love the chance to talk to you about it and see how we can tell your story to the Fiverr community and potentially beyond. -MJ (Fiverr Community Guy)
  17. Hi Eyemsoeyeze. I’m Matt, Community Manager here at Fiverr. To remain consistent with the administrative and payment processing fees Fiverr incurs, we’ve increased the small processing fee. As you know, processing fees are added at the time of purchase where a buyer can review and accept the total amount requested to pay. These fees cover payment processing and administrative fees. As of July 27, 2016, purchases of up to $20 include a processing fee of $1, and purchases of greater than $20 are 5% of the stated Gig price. Thanks for asking!
