  1. Why does Fiverr have a Super Bowl Category in our forum? Well, if you haven’t seen the news, Fiverr is participating in the Super Bowl this year! Check out the threads below to participate in the journey with us.

  2. Exactly. It is unfortunate to see @mjensen415 twist this to make it look like we are condemning useful things, when we’re condemning repeated misinformation.

    I sorry if you perceived it as me twisting anything. There is a LOT of feedback in this thread and it’s difficult to address each comment in a single post.

    We have in place many systems and checks to make sure the correct information is shown to the correct people. Would it surprise you to know that we have over 291k posts created here in this forum in the past year? We easily go over 3.5 million pageviews… per month.

    Flagging, category routing, moderators, community standards, and Single Sign On (accountability) all trying to work in harmony to try to keep this a place where any user can find any information or discussions that are relevant to them.

    Concerns about users trying to “game” the system are valid, but that does boil down to is education. The best way to cheat or game the system is to produce quality content and deliver quality Gigs. The volume is too high to block or stop link posting here or on social media. Also, that would punish those who are doing it correctly.

    “I doubt that anyone from Fiverr would, if pressed, agree that ‘remaining online 24/7’ and spamming Twitter incessantly were viable tactics for generating sales” - No need to press. I’ve said this is not a way to attract buyers multiple times, to multiple users, and in webinars and presentations.

    All that said, there are a lot of new things, systems, rules, standards that will be in place over the next few weeks/months. But more on that soon.

  3. Short answer. Yes, there will be SUBSTANTIAL changes to the forum in the next few months.

    I’m not ready to share any details at this time, but I have been working on this for a few months now. I will not hesitate sharing with everyone when I can.

    Every year, it seems that we go through an upgrade here in the forum. Last year, after we updated the categories structure, it significantly cleaned up the conversation “scruff” leaving mostly useful discussion threads. Since that time one year ago, the forum pageview activity had grown 3-4x. With this massive explosion of user growth comes new community members who need help and can share experiences.

    Remember, just because you’ve seen a tip or trick before, or you’re at a point in your Fiverr journey that it’s no longer relevant to you, doesnt’ mean it can’t be for someone else.

    Thank you @cubittaudio for starting this thread. Thank you everyone for jumping in with your feedback. You’re heard and there are actions underway to address and change MOST of what is commented here.

    1. Talk to your sellers

    Here are Phillip’s top 3 tips to succeed on Fiverr:


    1. Plan Ahead
    When you want to build a product, you sometimes miss the minor details like ip, copyright, consistent branding, etc. To avoid this, it’s best to plan ahead, make a list of all the elements you need for your project to succeed and make sure you allocate enough time and budget for each element.


    2. Find your seller
    Once your plan is finalized, invest time in finding the right seller for your project. Check reviews, ask for a portfolio, or message them directly. Never book an order without contacting the seller first to make sure that you’re both on the same page. When in doubt, contact vid-concierge@fiverr.com!


    3. Do a trial run
    Have a large budget? Start small. Break your project up. Start with a partial version of your project, so you can test both the seller’s skills but also how you communicate with one another. If it works out, then you can feel more confident giving them more work.
