  1. I’m new to Fiverr, and I’ve applied for about 5 or 6 transcriptionist jobs in the last few days and I’m wondering if I’m not committing a couple of Fiverr/freelancer social faux pas on the proposal page. There’s something in the online tone of freelance websites I’ve noticed, which is fairly relaxed and casual, and I then feel awkward using a formal tone in my proposal and cover letter. I usually only use a couple of sentences, to say I’m new, and looking to make a good impression etc and about my history, then a couple of things to indicate I’ve looked at their proposal, or know what they want of me. The problem is I end up (maybe subconsciously) writing out something that is too short to be the sort of formal cover letter I’ve been trained to write, but too long to be just ‘hey, I type good. bye.’ and I don’t know if it’s landing the way it supposed to. Is that the tone they generally expect ? Secondly, I also started writing something a long the lines of 'I don’t mention my jobs prior to freelancing as most potential clients aren’t interested in them, but between car valeter, house keeper, conservation volunteer and industrial cleaner, I’ve developed important key skills such as time keeping, attention to detail … Is this A. a good way to highlight my skills and B. a totally fine way to shoehorn them in? Thanks! L
  2. Yesterday I just slaved away for 3 hours on my profile only to be locked out because of a bug on the literacy test that claimed that the ‘ticket’ was already used, which lo and behold popped up the moment I selected to do the test. For the first time. It went (and forgive me, I’m paraphrasing because I can’t retrieve the page) “You can’t go public until you complete our literacy test” Ok, CLICK “These are the rules. Sit down, don’t close the page, are you ready?” Sure, CLICK ERRORRRR (some 3-digit number beginning with 20) TICKET ALREADY USED That’s basically it. I’m going to have to try again but like it says, you can only try it 2 or 3 times a month, and it’s not like I can rely on my gardening qualifications under a lockdown 😕 Also, before anyone says it, the help centre only does very narrow issues, and doesn’t allow for the reporting of particulars, and finally the ticket option which I’ve been recommended leads to an almost blank page with just: Requests My requests [Requests I’m CC’d on] :Status: No requests found. Anyone know what’s going on, or how to get this over to the technical team? and importantly, how to have my test attempts reset to zero. Thank you sorry for the garbled structure, I’ve not long before I need to facetime the family 🙂

  4. Can we get this bumped up? I just slaved away for 3 hours on my profile only to be locked out because of a similar error- claiming that the ‘ticket’ was already used, which lo and behold popped up the moment I selected to do the test. For the first time. Any help, @Fiverr-Care ?
