I want Fiverr to allow a "Block" feature


#1

So I can block creeps who tell me I have “nice legs” and ask for "pictures of my feet."
SO irritating and it affects my response rate.
Not to mention the Report feature does absolutely nothing.


#2

Heres an idea…dont post photos of your legs


#3

Here’s a thought…Maybe I don’t actually post photos of my legs?


#4

Don’t worry, @corvega is just one of the many resident village idiots whose opinions can safely be discounted.


#5

Looool no kidding!!


#6

You have a sexy tail as well… :wink:
Could you wiggle it for me please and do the bunny hop! :stuck_out_tongue:

lol :smiley:

Wow, you’re a creep. What kind of person are you? I don’t know if it will help, but I reported this guy.


#8

@corvega Perhaps you could remove your poorly done and copyright protected profile photo, since you are into photo suggestions.


#9

I agree. I’ve had scammers contact me, and when I was advised that “reporting” would block them, it did nothing. They same person contacted me again and again and again. It was a little creepy, and I reported it every time.

love you monstersketch


#11

@djgodknows Delete this post if you have any sense.

RE : it affects my response rate.

CS said once that hitting the report button counts as a response, so your response rate is not affected.


#13

I´d like a block feature too, but maybe better post it to the ‘Suggestions’ part of the forum? I think it works again, without that attachment bug too :wink:
Who knows, if everyone who´d like one would comment there, it might be considered, though, well, probably not.
I had interestingly kind of the opposite problem twice already now, two people with perfectly fine inquiries for a custom offer, and fiverr telling me I had blocked them or something, which I surely hadn´t, just had seen their messages in my mail, and logged in to reply, and I had to unblock/unspam/whatever to be able to reply to them.


#14

This is a gig idea. I will send you photos of my feet for 10$…
Gig extras. Big toe only +10$. Small toe +5$.


#15

Really? Interesting. Will do this for now on.


#16

Also if I get customers who I’ve had a bad experience working with try to come back I could block them lol


#17

A+ for this idea


#18

Maybe even a multiple-block-button, with the reason, for statistics.

Block this buyer because they asked for feet-pics.
Block this buyer for general creepiness.
Block this buyer because they never reply to important questions.
Block this buyer because they generally are a pain to work with.
Block this buyer because they scammed me/someone I know.
Block this buyer because I read bad things about them on the forum.

I think if fiverr wants to know from buyers to what industry their order belongs to, they could demonstrate some curiosity about reasons one wants to block a buyer for too :wink:


#19

Oh that´s good to know, thanks.

There’s currently a bug where, once you report a message/user, the reported message will revert to default after few minutes.

So you will have to report it again.

Just keep an eye on the message the first time you report it and don’t delete, until about an hour, when you are confirmed that the message/user is still marked as “reported”.

This is one of the reason your response rate drops and its because of this bug.
