  1. It happened to me once, I was working with a rude buyer and I cancelled his order just a day in. Nothing really happened. Orders came in as always. I didn't have more than 7 gigs so it didn't really have an impact on me.
  2. Yes, you are. Not the first time I (we?) have heard of this tactic. Is it okay if I ask what type of app and the cost of the gigs?
  3. My left arm (not the injected one) + chest and some limbs quite hurt for over 10 days after the first shot. Not that excited for the second dose.
  4. Definitely, you can map any game controller with Joystick Mapper on MacOS and with other apps on Windows. Search stuff like "Turn Xbox controller into MIDI" and you'll find what I'm talking about.
  5. Follow your passion(s) and start early, slowly, bit by bit - and find the right pace at which to challenge yourself regularly.
  6. I've got a 6 core i5 with 16 gigs of RAM. The graphics card from my previous rig died and nearly all components were 5 years old, so I decided to put a new one together as soon as I'd have a new GPU in my hands (I bought a new 1060 in April for 100€, which was/still is going for 300-400€, nearly 400-500 USD, due to the chip crisis).
  7. For something like this, all you have to do is to (politely) contact CS by opening a ticket and ask for that cancellation to be taken out of the equation. Not your fault = can be restored. If in the upcoming days your buyer ends up being a b-word who's using your work without reaching you for compensation, you can also DMCA the hell out of them through Fiverr itself. A link to the IP stuff is in the ribbon at the end of every page on the website. Then there are some ways in which you can get rightfully paid but only someone more experienced than me can answer since AFAIK 99% of the time it's always lost income in these cases.
  8. I've heard about sellers getting banned after a buyer's order was completed, but never during! This is a particular case. Anyways: sellers who have been suspended - because not everything is necessarily final - will be able to withdraw their remaining balance before (if their account is restored) or after (if they're banned) 90 days. So they should get the money, IF Fiverr allows you to complete the order right now, that is.
  9. The two "national" animals of Italy are the bear and the wolf, and that's also the most dangerous it gets. There are a few white sharks that I'm aware of and that's it. Most woods also have boars, the most common wild animal (that is eaten in Italy along with the rabbit). Also yeah, living near any coast here is basically: seagulls screeching at 1 AM, seagulls screeching at 2 AM, etc.
  10. You doing it is up to you, her asking is never contemplated (and not polite either - I would refuse to work with her). Straight from Support:
  11. It's a very nice, clean cover, and I find little wrong with it... I'm looking to seriously expand in the more pro book covers and such territory too (stuff to be done with fonts + stock photo subscriptions), so I really like seeing it's working out well for you! I've just got an ask, do you do any "special" stuff when working with file formats (I guess you deliver things in AI/ID/SVG/PDFs)? Like color profiles, setting up information specifically for prints, or is it as simple as exporting the PDF like they tell you to on the examples page? Because I see stuff like KDP is basically DIY-tier, just like what I described. I'm anxious when it comes to my clients' stuff getting printed, etched, etc.
  12. Yep! Your turn! @alphagev this charted the highest in Italy, btw 🤣 since I saw you used the confused reaction...
  13. @imagination7413 is close with the grammar even if totally off the mark...
  14. Hint: "moo". Will drop another hint in 24 hours and then it's 🤐 for the rest of the game!
  15. 🐄🤢🔊👍➕↩️ Could be hard but it's entirely solvable.
  16. At the start it was in waves of 2-3 buyers, but now I'm in my first "getting messages every day" phase. In the last three months I've made almost x1.5 of what I've made in my first six months on Fiverr. I may or may not hit Level 2 by the end of the year (and this is my 11th month selling on here). I'm in the process of upskilling (mixing, mastering, some fields of design). I bought a lot of new software and I'm thinking of subscribing to cheap stock photo services and one for fonts too. This way I can start doing stuff like book covers and finally put my [humbly, eh] pro photoshopping abilities at work with Affinity with a new gig.
  17. Don't care. The response rate doesn't go down if you receive the message before you come online, and when you're in "night mode" especially. Buyers better be aware of the existence of time zones. And if I lose a sale because I don't reply back when I'm sleeping, it's not like I'd ever want to work with someone so impatient...
  18. I was about to make a "what does the fox say" joke, but apparently that emoji's an ANT...
  19. @imagination7413 That's a cloned OP from February! It should be @vickiespencer's turn.
  20. He can’t get away with it… politely let him know he can’t decide not to pay you and chicken out on his initial premises. P.S.: this forum is getting turned off in a few hours, I think, because in five days a new one will open!
  21. Of course, performance still accounts for a fraction of why you’re showing up. Could be big, could be some 30-50% - we don’t get to know the algorithm since it’s proprietary. The algorithm for sure uses other data such as the person’s internet “profile” (we share a lot of data unconsciously), keyword choice, IMHO also location/timezone, etc.
  22. I don’t want to ruin your excitement, but this year Fiverr switched from a classic general search engine to a personal buyer-to-seller matching system. It means that according to the algorithm you’re the third most likely person you’d trust if you were to buy a service in one of your fields. I’m always second or third now too if I look for one of my gigs. 😬 It’s good that I’m telling you though, because obsessing about rankings is one of the worst recurring vices I see on here. Even experienced folks did it too when it barely figured back then, so imagine now. Checking what the little gig stat graphs tell you once a week is already enough! Proof from Frank
