  1. Hey, Em,

    You were banned for 1000 years and now you are back on the Fiverr Forum. But @jonbaas was banned until September 2021 and he is not back? At least that is what he told me when I inboxed him to tell him that formerly banned users were back on the FF.

      Jon seems to be back now.

      I wouldn't know anything about that, but didn't he threaten never to come back if he got banned again because blah blah blah? Besides, I seem to recall Discourse 1,000 year bans were a feature of the forum software rather than Dr. Evil moderation policies (but I could be wrong).

      It appears you were right! Welcome back. 

  2. Welcome back, Emma 🙂

      Thank you! I am still lowkey confused by the new forum layout...

  3. Hello! I'm not banned anymore 🙂 or 😞 if you didn't like me very much, so YMMV. The golden poop stays.

      I do! That was what, 2 forums ago?

      Don't ask me how, but I knew you'd get back on this forum one day. I actually thought you'd do it by outliving the thousand-year ban, just to get one up on Fiverr.

      Hope you're well.

      Time really flies, a thousand years gone in the blink of an eye. Give me a second to compose something in honour of your return (and of Edward Lear) ...

      There was a young lady living in Greece,

      Her favourite food green peppers, not cheese,

      It came to my ears she got banned for a thousand years,

      That whimsical English lady of Greece.

      Yay for new forum amnesties!

  4. @emmaki who on their right mind would trust you to google or youtube anything? Nothing personal 😁 Crap rap or amusing parodies? Your choice!
  5. Don’t forget shouting at bank people. What or who should I off, Mizzles?
  6. I just like poking things with a stick and getting told off from time to time.
  7. It’s like a perverted good cop, bad cop routine. I am also really good at apologizing when necessary.
  8. I found Fiverr through a bunch of screeching professionals screeching about the race to the bottom. I didn’t join for a year or two because I agreed with them. Then, at the arse end of 2013, I thought I might as well test it out despite the lowball festival. The rest is history
  9. You can always come to me for tips on how to help people, writer. I am an expert in such matters.
  10. Unfortunately, he’s cornered the cricket market when he’s not busy shouting at brown sahib bank people, so he has better things to do. I’d like to make a make my day punk(wallah) joke but I shall refrain from doing so.
  11. It might be worth making a post to show that. Even put it on the blog (the editor is always looking for new and safe ideas, and this is definitely a newish and safe idea). It won’t work of course–you’ll get “wow am inspired” posts and no action after. Such is life. EDIT: I know you can’t put it on the blog, and I can’t be bothered to pitch it but hey skilled writers of Fiverr who can be bothered to provide free content for erm exposure there you go!
  12. A new seller, with a fairly unique gig and boom - I also read somewhere about a month ago, about how he had to increase his pricing repeatedly due to the amount of work he was getting - just checked now and its gone up again. I think Blaise must have assisted roughly 7 billion people in the same way but the ones who find success are the ones who actually get stuck in and apply what they are told - the rest get what they deserve - nothing. I did not see the @selfors post! That was quite refreshing for once. This forum can be quite a viper’s nest sometimes (ahem).
  13. As a nerd, I already know the way to their hearts with my knowledge of D&D and other customs. The bigger issue here (nerd or not) isn’t so much what Fiverr’s doing. Aside from the review system, I think it’s doing a good job and it is trying to fix some horrible issues. What a lot of sellers here seem to forget is that it’s just a platform. On any given day you’ll come here and see a whine about no sells or whatever, when the reality is that for whatever reason the editorial focus has shifted. Hopefully not for long, but when it does, you have a choice: make a new gig, refocus, target BR, do some external promotion… ultimately, it’s all on the seller at the end of the day. The platform’s busy and cracking down on bad sellers. A lot of others are getting caught in the crossfire. The biggest issue to my mind is more that people aren’t accepting their own role in all of this: it’s your business. Why on earth would anyone celebrate an automated milestone on a forum? Buy a house or a car, I feel the same way still, but there’s more reason there. But “HEY GUYS I MAKE LVL 1!” followed by “I make no sales since Level 2” is really just highlighting a very specific ignorance of how a platform serving millions works–and no, it doesn’t care about you, it cares about everyone and ultimately, its own profits. Now, I’m a smartass, but sometimes you just gotta listen to people who know better. Whether that’s because they bullshit better than you or can code/design whatever better than you, then listen. Nerds definitely are bad (in general) at marketing. The smart ones get on with the code and let a bullshitter do the bullshit, and vice-versa. Otherwise, you end up posting on the forum about how you can’t get a job and can Fiverr change it all for you, then getting upset later on when, oh, I don’t know, you can’t access BR or your own message box because you don’t know how it all works, all while leaning on another to help you. I hope that Fiverr’s changes squash out a lot of this silly behavior. In the meantime, as in all business, focus on what you do best, hire someone else to do what they do best. I do not have a robe and a wizard hat, but I can don one if required
