Gig marked without any reason just based on someone flagging it


Hello all,

I have been on Fiverr for 6 months now. I am a seller and it annoys me to see how sellers are promoting their services on buyer requests section and this is really not good when you see so many fake requests on buyers section even with contact details.

The worst thing is these should not be approved at the first place when the content clearly says for example I saw this in buyer requests

" I am Logo Desginer … Hello Sir it,s me Malik Atif. i am very much able in Logo Design, for this you can check my profile as well. but one thing i say i am new here but you can trust me.

How this got APPROVED???

This is really against any community standards.

The worst thing that happened today was that one of my gig was marked for modification telling me that I had put contact details on my gig when there was none.

This is something that should be really addressed. I got so many view on my gig but was marked giving a reason that was not even there. It annoys more when you see these sellers violating policies and still get approvals but the right ones are penalized based on some sellers flagging it without any investigation and looking into the flag request my gig was marked.

Can someone explain what is going on?
