I had a customer recently who disappeared after placing the order and giving minimal instructions. They were unavailable for feedback to help direct my efforts. Despite the lack of information, I did my best to follow instructions and complete the gig. On the day before delivery they came back with the information I needed from the very beginning. Gratefully they were happy to extend delivery, and were apologetic about disappearing. Anyways, frustration… even with extended delivery, this now creeps into time that I should be spending on other orders that have lined up. :[
Another customer had me re-edit his article with him so many times it was nuts. I was patient and helped them do the thing. Then they came back after showing the delivered product and wanted me to revise again with a new set of guidelines they got from a friend. Yes, they are paying me, but this is more work that’s pushing into other orders I’d rather be doing.
It’s summer, and people want me to go do things outside, which is great, but I’d rather be working.
I thought I had raised my prices enough to give me some freetime… but I’m seriously pushing myself to complete projects with every ounce of available time… these “extra-curricular” activities are annoying.
Just tired, frustrated, grumpy… whatever, I’m doing the thing, getting paid and getting reviews… so… I’ll stop complaining and go play volleyball.
Feel free to use this thread to express your own frustrations. As long as they don’t have anything to do with what’s wrong with fiverr. No one forces me to work here, so whatever I don’t like about fiverr are things that I voluntarily participate in and don’t enjoy obsessing over. Oh yeah, I guess that’s part of my rant too… people complaining about fiverr on fiverrs forum, instead of spending that time to create more opportunities somewhere else. :[
