Perhaps interpretation would have been a better word, then. I’ve had plenty of warnings and orange boxes, but all that really tells me is that I’m being a bit too much and overstepping the boundaries and that I should dial it back a bit, rather than compare my treatment with others.
Fiverr is, for now my main business: it wasn’t when I started, and it may not be in a few years. I think you should share your experience. The act of mentioning that you can’t speak because you will be silenced is ultimately self-censorship.
I’ve read that the CEO of Fiverr could be a psychopath, for example. It could be true: there are studies and books written about how a surprising percentage of CEOs have psychopathic tendencies. Do I believe this? Not really. I don’t know the guy, I’ve never worked under him, but if you read Glassdoor reviews, some toes have been stepped on. More interesting than this vile slur, of course, is the fact that TrustPilot has a Fiverr rating of 2 stars (it’s a bit higher than that, or was last time I looked), and all those reviews are from people who clearly didn’t read the TOS or have a major issue with something that is nothing to do with Fiverr at all. Notably, unlike UpWork, Fiverr doesn’t manipulate reviews there (yet).
Say what you think, or cry Wolf. I don’t mind if this is edited out, but the fact is that anyone can read this and verify that I’m just reporting on what other people say: now, as members of this community, isn’t it more valuable to discuss how we can improve this impression of Fiverr? 2 years ago, a video interview with the CEO was promised–delayed until this day. As was the pro video, I believe, though I have a hazy memory of that being promised so maybe I never saw it.
This isn’t a dictatorship. We have free speech.
