Per Fiverr -
"**I’d like to take a moment to share some updates coming soon to Featured status on Fiverr.
Traditionally, once a Gig was Featured, it generally held that status permanently as long as the seller was active and in good-standing on Fiverr. This, as any of you know, made it very difficult for many sellers to gain the “Featured” tag on their Gig and also sometimes caused flooding of Featured Gigs in certain categories, thus limiting the benefits.
In the near future, the Featured status will be a temporary Editorial push. The duration may very, but it will be limited.
Those of you who have had a Featured Gig for many years may find that your Gig will be no longer Featured. I totally understand that this may be disappointing but I hope that you find this will be a great change for the community as a whole, giving new sellers (and maybe even some of your other Gigs!) and chance to gain more exposure.**"
