I dunno, as much as I understand what you are saying and I’m sorry if I sound arrogant, but when I started here I didn’t know the forum existed, and what I did was walk myself through Fiverr. I think a lot of us did, including you.
Do people get overwhelmed, yeah, I’m sure they do at times.
Even though the amount of reading is overwhelming though, after all, it is just reading. You start from the top and scroll down and keep going, easy as that.
When I first started here I sat in front of the PC thinking “OK, this is gonna take a loooong time…but here I go!” (with the help of of course)
Again, I’m sure a lot of people did the same.
I get the feeling that people who post the same questions keep doing so hoping that someone will give them an easier option someday…which doesn’t exist.
When someone posts a “I can’t get sales” thread, usually they get the “check out these links and be sure to read everything.”
…and they just reply with a “Thanks,OK.”
On the other hand I’ve seen people post the same question and when I check their gigs, they’ve done everything right, and all they needed was another person’s opinion and a few tweaks here and there, and once they made those changes they come back to the forum thanking the ones who had given them advice.
The important thing is that this new seller took the time and did everything right.
I don’t want to sound mean, but I believe there is a clear line between offering help and spoon-feeding
True, there are things Fiverr can do, but not providing a step-by-step how-to instruction.
OK, this got long…time to get back to work
