I had listed a proofreading job, and in the first conversation, I noticed that the person used some weird phrasing that indicated to me that she was non-English. In any case, she abruptly stopped communicating before we had an agreement.
Next, I responded to someone who was enthusiastic and couldn’t wait to get the manuscript. After several back-n-forths, abrupt silence.
Did I violate some Fiverr rule by posting the manuscript in the last message?
Do I have to accept the offer before she can download the manuscript? She had made two offers, one slightly less than the original.
Can other people download my manuscript?
How can I withdraw my manuscript? It is on Fiverr’s servers, so that is not good.
How can I tell if she has downloaded the manuscript?
This is very weird. Why would someone seem incredibly interested and willing, and share almost the exact same interests as me and then suddenly cut off contact? If I cancel my account does my manuscript also go into Fiverr’s cyber paperbasket?
Looks like I’m going to be my own proofreader, judging by seriously weird actions of some participants. Not even a “Sorry, I’m not interested now.”
