Can we talk about that terrible alert sound?


#1

You’ve got Fiverr open on your computer as you’re absorbed in a project. Suddenly, TACK! a message comes in on Fiverr and you nearly jump out of your seat. Is it just me, or does Fiverr have the most abrasive and startling alert sound on desktop?


#2

I always close/ turn off/ disconnect from everything that makes any kind of sound while writing. Even cell phone.


#3

I love this fiverr massage alert sound. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::joy::joy::joy::joy:


#4

Hmmm…it’s interesting how people react to certain sounds differently.
Personally it doesn’t bother me at all, in fact that rather dumb-sounding “plop!”
is oddly soothing for me! :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

Although I like the fiverr message/notification sound.The sounds needs to be a little soft.
Occasionally we start to wonder .If you notice the sound very well it has the meaning we might have heard “Tallk” or “Tolnk”. From these sense, i think that is on right way cause fiverr wanted to express by this sound actually "Talk’ ( I think ).


#6

I love it, The Tack Tack sound :tada: :tada:


#7

I, personally, really like the alert sound… :rofl:

My liking for the alert sound is furthered by the fact that I am a new seller, as the alert sound could indicate a prospective business opportunity :wink:


#8

I share your sentiments. The notification sound like instantly fuels my anxiety and puts me on edge lol. I usually have my computer muted because I have the TV going, so when I forget, the sound ALWAYS scares me.


#9

I hate the notification sound, because not being able to change it makes it quickly become irritating - HOWEVER, Fiverr added a new subtle feature: if you’re browsing the web, the Fiverr Tab will now show a small red dot if you have any kind of notifications, which allows us to mute the sound since there’s now a visual cue :slight_smile:


#10

I very much don’t like that sound, and I remember I liked a Site Suggestion post that asked for different sounds… let me see… hm, sounds as if it actually was a complaint about the sound being too subtle lol so they might have remedied that but as the suggestion in fact is for a custom sound, maybe you’d like to bump it yet.


#11

If you want you can simply turn off only notification sound on certain sites. It is same in computer and smartphones.
In chrome url you will see “secure” with lock sign. when you click this and then setting you will see list of option where you can simply turn on and off what you want.

And Yes, Some people don’t really like these sounds but most people do.


#12

Oh, that’s good to know! The notifications are useful though, even if they startle me. Usually I turn the volume down after the first notification, but I often forget.


#13

Oh, I didn’t notice that. I’ll have to look out for it next time I sign in on my computer.


#14

That’s an interesting idea


#15

I don’t know why but I love it :joy::joy:


#16

I like it a little bit :joy::joy:


#17

If Fiverr allows me to set my notification sound , I will set this


#18

I bet some sellers would even go as far as setting this as their notification sound :rofl: (especially those who have nightmare buyers on a regular basis)


#19

I love the sound but you can turn it off


#20

If you can only know how I’m eagerly waiting for that sound…
