Apparently, I will keep the warning.
The manipulation comes from using the gig extension feature too often (which I was told to use to prevent article theft on the larger orders). I extended a gig to 31 days using this system and the limit as per Fiverr terms and conditions is 30 days, hence the demotion of my gig. It is just a silly little thing. Firstly:
- Do not tell me to extend the bloody gig. You are warning me for EXACTLY the same gig you told me to extend.
- Have your system BLOCK people extending beyond 30 days if it is SOOOOOOOOO important that gigs do not take longer than 30.
This is the TOS:
“Services that extend beyond 30 days of service duration”
But, I am not offering a service that goes beyond 30 days of duration, am I? I am offering a service that is delivered at a point and that point it is completed. My interpretation of that rule is you can’t say:
“I will offer SEO services for 60 days”
That would be against the ToS, not taking longer than 30 days on a larger order.
I don’t believe 1 day has cost me my level. That is ridiculous.
It is all well and good the people making these decisions having a stable income, no doubt furiously cheering at a power trip or whatever. No decision they make can possibly cost them hundreds of dollars overnight. They will turn up to work at Fiverr in the morning and still get some money.
Decisions like this need to be made by 3-4 people, not some chap deciding on a whim “you know what. I can’t help with this person, so let’s warn Ryan instead”
The thing that annoys me is that they DO NOT need to offer an account warning. They can just say “please don’t do that again”. But no.
