A Commitment to Community: Updates to Our Product

Exactly! I advertise, so it’s pretty easy for me to get a negative review based on a buyer being unreasonable with their final result expectation. What’s GREAT is sometimes subjective… example: Sushi socks,…:sushi::socks:

I had a seller give me a 1 star review - despite my having done exactly as my gig says I would to the T - because her ad I posted - advertising socks that looked like a giant piece of sushi – didn’t go over that great with my audience…

She thought her sushi socks were a brilliant invention… everyone else, not so much…:face_with_raised_eyebrow::no_mouth::rofl:

I even have a disclaimer saying I can’t guarantee results, for this reason. But I couldn’t get that feedback removed at the time even though it was clearly unreasonable.


#128

I find these changes positive. I hope the next ones will be the supression of the 60-day limited ratings in UI and some changes in how PRO are handled in the marketplace, stating they are just different price tier and not making regular sellers are just low quality in comparison to them. Nice the supression of the lowest rated order every St.Level, that is a nice touch, and the buyer ban option, a must have.


#129

Great news. Thank you.


#130

What if we feel a buyer leaves us an unjust review or a possible glitch/error and we want to leave them feedback? I am not a huge fan of the blind review. Please bring back the feedback modification form :frowning_face:


#131

There is only one thing sellers can do about the changes to the review system and that is to try not to care about reviews at all.


#132

But unfortunately so much depends on a reviews… they’re almost an obsession. lol :no_mouth::tired_face:


#133

Why care about something we are totally helpless about, that is stacked against us in some ways? It does no good to even worry about it. I doubt if I will even look at my reviews from now on.


#134

I wish I could let go like that… life would be so much easier…


#135

You know, you have control over your own reactions to things. This is good practice for that knowledge. Don’t allow something that is beyond your control to affect you.


#136

Thanks Crystal… I actually need this lesson for on and offline stuff right now.


#137

You’re welcome. I try to keep this in mind as much as possible. We are the boss of our minds. The mind makes a great servant but a terrible master.


#138

You’re right misscrystal, I guess it’s better to just let things be now. I need to take your approach more.


#139

Thank you so much Fiverr!!!


#140

Here’s an idea- stop telling people they have been nominated for TRS. We already know that 99.999% of those people won’t be promoted to TRS.

Becoming TRS should be a surprise, unexpected. Getting people’s hopes up only to let them down is cruel.


#141

About F***ing time

Yup, we are becoming Upw0rk


#142

It’s more cruel when you get the "we’ve decided you’re staying at level 2’ message, before you get the nominated for TRS message. I’ve had this twice now. Talk about bugs…


#143

Exactly. If Fiverr does too much, the potential for bugs increases.

These are the only messages I welcome:

  1. New Order
  2. Revision request
  3. Cancellation

That’s all I need.


#144

This is a awesome and great news. I think its helpful for all fiverr sellers.
Thanks fiverr.


#145

Is it just me that sees that or the review system is back to what it was?(you can see 1k+ reviews, not only from the last 60 days??


#146

Nice & effective statement. Thanks
