  • A “Hello” / “.” / “Hi Mam” / “Sir Dear” / etc. related to one of your gig, then nothing else to their “inquiry”.
  • Forum messages included !
  • 1 - 5
  • 6 - 10

What about inquiries that are asking for something that violates the ToS? (ex: academics)

I haven’t had any of those myself this month, but I know @vickiespencer did.

Hmm… Those are genuine in that they want to actually hire someone, but spam in that they’re unwanted.


Oh, that’s a good point @wp_kid

Are these spam limited to the Fiverr platform, or do they extend to the forums too? 'cause if the latter, I need to change my vote.

I do believe that their genuine intent is to get something done through your services. Not everyone is aware of the ToS, what can be performed or not. They are actually coming to us sellers, as buyers : which is out of the scope of my poll here.

Yep ! Please include these ones too !

I’m pretty lucky.

Of course…now that I’ve posted that…

I have not heard of the 8 million gods in Japan, even as a Japanese :thinking:
Though I just hope this God won’t materialize as the legendary 1000 years of Pain…

It’s not really 8 million, but someone slapped on the number “8 million” simply because they are so many. Here’s a short explanation from Wiki (sorry it’s in Japanese):
[神](かみ)とは、自然現象などの[信仰]や畏怖の対象である。「 八百万の神 」(やおよろずのかみ)と言う場合の「八百万」(やおよろず)は、数が多いことの例えである。

BTW, what a timing, I JUST got a “hi” message in my inbox now.
Seriously…

Well I’m fine with Japanese haha, thanks for the educational bit !

Though your post might be flagged since we are not supposed to communicate in a language other than English. (we already had this issue together on one of my Post about COVID :cold_sweat: )

Let’s talk in private in Japanese if you want :smiley:

Only 1 this month, luckily. Inappropriate content.

Wait, I have to count?

It’s not really “spam,” but I just got a request for a 3000 word translation for $5.
For me personally, that’s beyond insulting and I see it as spam!
