Hi @emma_create - welcome to the forum.
I think that Fiverr is really excited about being a respectable company at last! The IPO has given the company a real boost … and some money to invest.
As more and more people sign up, both as sellers and buyers, they’re trying very hard to make sense of everything that’s offered - hence the increasing numbers of categories, new features and general “try things - let’s see if they work”.
Change often feels threatening - I had a client not so long ago whose issues were rooted in her mother changing everything in her room (including throwing things out!) every time she left the house. She never felt safe.
I think maybe the changes are coming so thick and fast right now that those of us who have been here a while are feeling, like that client, unsafe, like our homes are being reorganized without any consultation and changes are being sprung on us as a surprise. It wouldn’t feel so bad if it didn’t affect our stats/number of orders etc … but it does and it can be scary.
Take a breath, bear in mind Fiverr’s a bit like a kid in a sweetie shop at the moment due to the influx of investment … and wait for them to calm down. Things that don’t work will fade away … things that do, wont.
