So, here’s the deal:
I sit down in my computer, set my status to “AVAILABLE NOW” and start editing the voice overs in my queue. The Fiverr page is right below the DAW, so I’m really one click away from my inbox.
I receive a message, but I don’t notice the sound notification since I’m working on a sound file. Kindly check the time of the message: 14:01 (Actually 13:01)
The notification in-Fiverr pops up 3 whole minutes after the message has been received. That’s past half the time I have to reply:
And the e-Mail (the actual notification that made me aware of the incoming message) came in exactly when the deadline was met.
Now, some observations:
- When set on “available now” I check from time to time the Fiverr tab.
- I understand we should be able to use the “available now” feature when able to respond within a few clicks. However, if there’s no actual system that notifies us promptly (other than the SFX which I don’t notice when either editing sound or listening to music), we’re screwed.
- If I’m supposed to stay the whole time in the Fiverr page just in case a message pops up… that’s not practical either.
These are my 5 cents. Heck, I might even have received a message while writing this down!
Thanks for the read!
