This conversation prompted me to check my records.
I believe I first contacted Support about this issue around November 2, 2016:
And this is the response I got:
I’ve basically been ignoring it since then, but I did raise the issue again in the past week or so. This time, they just ignored that part of my support ticket.
The main reason I had contacted them was because someone in the Fiverr Forum contacted me on Fiverr asking me for free stuff. (This is the main drawback of my participation on the Fiverr Forum, as my response rate has dropped below 100% AT LEAST 3 TIMES BECAUSE OF PEOPLE DOING THIS.)
When I first became a Level 1 Seller, I had been averaging 1 sale per day, but once my Response Rate dropped below 100% the first time, my sales dropped off a cliff, and they have never recovered.
I immediately reported that person, but a day or so later, my response rate dropped to 91%.
I contacted Fiverr Support with both issues, and they reset my Response Rate to 100%, with a reminder to be sure to report spam as spam within 24 hours (which is what I had done in the first place).
So in addition to my remarks about the industry question, this is a reminder to Fiverr Forum folks, to please, please, PLEASE:
Never contact a Fiverr Forum Participant on Fiverr unless you are contacting them as a customer who intends to purchase something, as opposed to as a Seller asking another Seller for FREE STUFF.
Pretty please with sugar on top,
