I don’t know if this is actually a bug or just a coincidence. Last month I raised my fees by $10, taking into consideration that this might slightly decrease the number of new orders and inquiries.
Since then, I only received 2 messages from potential buyers, despite my gig still being on the 1st page. The weird thing is that both these buyers vanished right after contacting me - I’m not even sure they saw my replies. It appears that they haven’t logged in since they messaged me (one for 28 days, and the other one for 3 days). Their initial messages and my replies haven’t disappeared from my inbox (as I read it happened with other bugs).
Had it been a singular situation, I would have assumed that that buyer wasn’t a regular Fiverr client and may have solved their task outside of the platform in the meantime, but having this happen twice in a row raised some questions.
Has anyone else encountered this recently? Is this a bug? Is it possible that the buyers might have actually been online and written back, and their subsequent messages didn’t appear?
