Is it against any of the rules to give potential buyers free advice which results in them not needing to buy a gig? There has been a few occasions where buyers will contact me asking to buy a gig for help completing a task that they had already started, and in some cases they were 90% complete and all it took me was to give them a 1 minute response to get them on track to completing the project themselves. Is this against the rules as Fiverr is potentially missing out on money they might have made if I made an offer to the buyer and they bought it?
I feel terrible taking money from someone who has put a lot of effort in to figuring something out for themselves and only got stuck on one small bit which only takes a minute of my time to help them.
I just want to add that this has sometimes resulted in that potential buyer coming back a few days later wanting to buy a gig for a different/bigger project, so that few minutes I lost giving them advice can sometimes convert in to a sale later on.
