Number of characters allowed in profile write-up

Hi,



When first filling out the profile I wrote far too many characters. In red font I was told my limit is 450 characters.

Now I’ve reduced the characters (with spaces) to 336, but in editing mode I’ve been cut down to 293 words. Why? I’ve now written a very short profile, but the program won’t include all of what I’ve written. What do I do to get all 336 words (with spaces) into my profile?



336

Author — UNCHARTED VOYAGE A Novel of International fragglesrock Trafficking — fragglesrock , fragglesrock & other eRetailers. Enter: fragglesrock . In this classic, fast-paced thriller, the author delivers a scathing and thoroughly researched exposé of one of the world’s most ancient though still largely ignored crimes. 336



293

We need a good WYSIWYG editor for the gig description formats.



@Rafael: You said “A Novel of International fragglesrock Trafficking” The word “fragglesrock” appeared 4 times in your OP.



FYI: fragglesrock is the word that replaces anything that is censored in this forum or anything that breaks TOS, so I am just letting you know that what you typed did not make it all.

I've always suggested this feature for years now, because plain text isn't enough anymore.. we, sellers, already started filling our descriptions with various symbols (✓, •, ☛ text ☚, » «, and so on) to attract attention or to emphasize things... so HTML tags would be really helpful for us, Fiverr team...

Probably because sellers are not as important as buyers are :(

Reply to @madmoo: if the customer is king, what is the seller? I would have said something here, but it’s rather inappropriate… my persistent problem is that buyers have the right to alter our ratings through useless cancellations, and this is what’s bugging me for a loooong time! And because of this, it just feels like buyers have all rights and sellers have only a handful, since buyers can destroy sellers :frowning: and if buyers destroy good sellers, what will this marketplace become?

Reply to @madmoo: well, you’re one of the lucky few… who’s CS again?

Reply to @oldbittygrandma: god, I couldn’t be more lame than this!! :stuck_out_tongue: we should have a topic dedicated to all abbreviations used on the forum :wink:

Reply to @madmoo: like I’ve said to OBG, I envy your sheriff’s badge :-<



I dream of a time & future where OBG + Madmoo + Woofy will form the best helping trio this forum has ever seen 8->

The problem is that without sellers there could be no buyers. But yes, that’s true.

I agree that we should basically be able to write as much as we want in out about section (I guess within reason). And the main profile page can be limited to 300 words or whatnot, and maybe there can me a “…more>” link to read the rest. Same with the gig descriptions. Some of my gigs are very complicated and I want to explain the gig extras in the description as well. So it’s be nice if we could add more there too. And even worse is the gig instructions to buyers. I definitely need more there sometimes because that is very tiny!

I just went into my profile pages to make some edits and found that my very important INSTRUCTIONS sections are all jacked up with regard to character count. They are showing totally inaccurate, WAY over the limit character counts…BUT THEY ARE NOT! Weeks ago, I took the time and I carefully worded every section to make sure they:



A) Said everything I needed to say



AND



B) Stayed within Fiverr’s character count limits



I know someone will advise me to contact Customer Support about this, but sadly, I have learned that they are about as helpful to us Sellers as the flu. They do not give a S&%@

about the sellers. It is absurd. I have given up on customer “support”.

Hello,
