Grandfathered Illegal Characters?


#1

I am trying to edit one of my gig extras. All I want to change/edit is the extra’s… but when I make my changes and go to save it tells me that I have illegal characters in the Title. Illegal characters that have been in the title since the gig has been created… which leads me to believe that the illegal characters are a new rule and my gig is grandfathered in??

This is very frustrating… now I have to decide between my previous title which my customers are used to and know me by, or editing ANY part of my gig including the extras. UGH!

Any improvement is a good improvement. Trust me customers know more by your profile, not the title of your gig. :slight_smile: Best of luck to you!

^^ my problem is not in identifying what I have to change in my title. The problem is having to choose between my EXISTING title or editing any part of my gig. Try to understand.

This is news to me.

I didn't like when they changed the rules about the number of characters you could have in the title and I have been reluctant to make changes to some of mine which are currently over the limit.
But sometimes you just have to make a sacrifice for the sake of the rest of the gig.

Ask support if your avatar is still not recognised - that sounds like a glitch.

Also the quote feature SHOULD work by highlighting then clicking on 'quote'.

Not sure why it's not working for you, sorry.


I love fiverr and all.....
But I think this is either a ridiculous rule or something that wasn't thought about before the rules changed. Shouldn't have to change my existing title because I want to edit my gig. If fiverr wanted to enforce illegal characters I wish ALL titles were forced to be changed immediately when they changed the rules.

thx... i guess it was the reply feature that wast working for me.

Reply to @brodel34: I’m not quite sure what the “attitude” is for. Cancellation ratio is not the same as positive feedback, which for ‘thepromogirl’ is still at 100% and she’s a level 2 seller.



I understand you’re frustrated but why come on to the forums presumably asking for advice (or at least venting at the system) and then take it out — however low-key it might seem — on the rest of us? We all have to play by the same rules, and we don’t get paid to help each other out - we do it because we want to. There’s no need for a passive-aggressive stance.

what "attitude"?

"Trust me customers know more by your profile, not the title of your gig."

that to me is a statement that may be extremely relevant to cancellation rate. I wasn't having an attitude about it, simply making an observation. I tried to drive that home with an indifferent smiley but apparently that was a failed attempt. i hope promogirl understands i wasnt bashing her.
