I recently started using Fiverr’s forum, and was eager to help out new sellers on the website. After posting a lengthy and detailed reply of advice to a user, I signed my name at the bottom, and copied and pasted the post to other new sellers asking for advice. Later, after looking through the badges, I stumbled upon the “Guidelines” of the forum. After reading it, I realized that I had done things that Fiverr suggested not to do.
I think that it would be helpful, for both the new forum member, and for the benefit of the forum, for the guidelines to come up automatically up the first time somebody logs on to the forum. That way, we all know what is expected of the users from the start.
What are your thoughts?
