It’s very hot in some parts of the world right now and perhaps it’s a good day to send out a reminder about using caution with heated/toxic communications.
The forum team of moderators and staff have made plenty of posts with the actual list of rules, guidelines to help those who might want more clarification and so on. Still, just in case, here are some things to keep in mind and some links to other resources:
- Fiverr is primarily here as a professional resource
- The Forum is here to support professional users and is not the same as general social media.
- Since the forum is for all Fiverr users which can include teen-agers, the mods have encouraged users to use PMs if they want to use more adult language or discuss polarizing general topics. That is a good use for forum PM’s since some users like to discuss hot-button issues.
- Forum PM’s are still viewable by some members of the forum team, can be flagged, and PM’s still fall under the umbrella of Fiverr Communications. Here is a quote from a staff post on communication:
“Communication on Fiverr should be friendly, constructive, and professional. Fiverr condemns bullying, harassment, and hate speech towards others. Violation of our Terms of Service around these issues can result in having your account put on hold or even permanently disabled. Writing abusively within our messaging system or fulfilling an order which contains abusive language or hate speech is also considered a violation of our Terms of Service.”
Please remember that forum moderation can also take place separately from Fiverr account issues. Forum access and forum levels can be altered or removed. Here are some references for review:
