Forum Rules - Updated 2017
All users should read and understand the forum rules before posting. If you do not understand the rules, contact Customer Support. Users who post on the forum have implied agreement with the rules. It is assumed all users have read these rules and users who do not follow the rules may have forum accounts restricted with or without warning.
This forum was created to provide a home for our Fiverr community. The forum is moderated.
1.) When starting a new discussion, please check that you aren’t duplicating an existing discussion thread or creating one that is very similar. These will be removed.
2.) To share your gigs for buyers, post it in “My Fiverr Gigs”. Posts that include gig/profile links even as signatures are considered promotional which is only allowed in MFG or alongside a bio in New User Intros. Ask for tips or sales assistance in “Improve my Gig” instead of Tips or FAQ.
3.) Controversy or entertainment is OK, but not hate speech or calling users/staff/CS a derogatory name. Keeping posts calm also makes it easier for us to collect feedback – both positive and negative. Extreme violations may result in account bans without warning.
4.) Posts may be edited or removed for extreme language or negatively calling your buyers/sellers out by username. Post will not be tolerated with extreme adult language, extreme sexual comments or innuendo or similar so please self-moderate your choice of words or use * as needed. Don’t bash Fiverr, Moderators or Customer Support. Posts with links or images showing the usernames in private messages or elsewhere fall under the same rule unless names are completely blurred or blacked out.
5.) The Discourse forum has the option for users to send Private Messages. These messages are still subject to the Fiverr ToS. It is against the forum rules to copy/paste content from these private messages or take screen shots of them and post the content on the public forum. If you do not want to engage in private messaging with someone, ask them not to contact you and use the available tools to block their messages.
6.) Discourse has tools that allow for post edits and deletions. Those tools are primarily for correcting typos and adding new info. Edits, including edits no longer displayed publicly, are retained in edit logs at an administrative level. Posts will still be moderated based on the original post, not based on edits. Violations of ToS, forum rules, and communication guidelines will still be utilized based on the original post. Editing or deleting a post does not remove or negate the violation. Excessive edits/deletions make posts difficult to read. The tools should be used moderately.
7.) You may post links that are relevant to the discussions as long as they are not links to your own website, blog or otherwise violate ToS or these rules. Gig/profile links belong in My Fiverr Gigs. All links and posts should comply with Fiverr Terms of Service. Unapproved links will cause link or post removal.
8. Links must not be shortened using non-Fiverr shortening sites like bitly, shortenit, etc. Gig/profile links should include the fiverr.com domain. This is a safety/security risk. Readers should not click on shortened links or links that may be questionable.
9.) Don’t plagiarize. Don’t copy forum posts or on or off-Fiverr content. Links to other content may be used within a conversational post & abide with the other forum rules and ToS.
10.) The forum does not replace or act as Customer Support. If you have technical issues or account concerns the Support Team can help. Forum mods/admins are not staff and should not be contacted by inbox except in regards to purchase of their gigs.
