I’m not here for solutions. Just to rant
In recent weeks I’ve noticed a real increase in the number of messages I’m receiving from people asking me to quote for jobs that either breach Fiverr’s TOS or else don’t fit with the services outlined in my gig.
For example I’ve had several people ask me to work on academic texts, I’ve had others ask me to proofread websites and pdf documents - neither of which I offer as I only work with Word documents for simplicity. I’ve also had loads of people asking me to complete work “in the next few hours as it’s urgent” - I don’t offer a 24 hour service as I don’t need the stress of working with disorganised people.
It’s not a massive problem, but each of these messages does need a short reply which takes time. The annoying thing is that the upturn in these unwanted messages has also coincided with a real downturn in orders in recent weeks. Frustrating.
