Fiverr Community Forum

This is so f****** disgusting

I have a Youtube account going by the same username I have here. There is no videos on it, but I thought I could start posting art related videos on it to try to get some following and bring some traction to my Fiverr account.

My first video idea was to hire a bunch of different artists on Fiverr to redraw one of my drawing in their style. I thought it would be interesting to see what they come up with and how different styles can change the feel of a drawing.

So I went into the anime section to look for artists since it seemed like an obvious style choice. First, page was full of NSFW services…I already don’t like this because minors are allowed here…but finding child p*** upon clicking on one of them was the nail in the coffin. What the actual f***! On a level 2 seller with hundreds of orders, proudly displayed in the live portfolio for everybody to see, not censored or anything! A child character that is 9 YEARS OLD in the cartoon (not anime), displayed as his 9 YEARS OLD self, bent over full private parts showing. I can’t believe it. Some people may argue that it’s just a cartoon character no real life, but how does it make it okay?

I’ve reported it…one week ago…the account is still there, the “artwork” is still displayed. Honestly, this is enough to make me think about leaving the platform. It’s totally unacceptable. P*** is one thing, but THIS… no, just no. Could you imagined if I would have been streaming while browsing for artists and found this abomination LIVE?

Well, silly me I went to that category thinking I will find him easily and report him too but if you type anime in search 95% are NSFW services and pornographic drawings so…

Major fail on Fiverr side.

Well, I could send the username in private, but I don’t know if this is allowed on the forum. And yeah, major fail, especially on such a popular style…you don’t even have to try to find them.

There was a thread fairly recently about permissible adult content gigs on Fiverr and it was surprisingly determined that adult writing was actually allowed. That still leaves video, voice, images, and illustrations seeming as violations under the current ToS, as it clearly states:

But Fiverr’s inability or unwillingness to enforce this term of their ToS is clear to see.

It’d be one thing on a 18+ website, I wouldn’t care at all for p***. But how is it not considered providing p*** to minors on a website that allows users as young as 13? Even if Fiverr is an international platform, this to me should be considered illegal. They shouldn’t get a pass because it’s against the TOS if they do not enforce it. And let’s not even talk about one that display children…even on a 18+ website this shouldn’t be allowed.

Well, that would have brought attention to the problem… And Fiverr might find themselves forced to deal with the problem fast, before they become “famous” for child p**n.

Well…it’s very tempting to make a video on it, which would be the complete opposite of my initial intention. It doubt it would have much impact since I don’t have a following at all and couldn’t monetize the video (Demonized videos don’t get favorise by Youtube’s algorithm). But I’m thinking about it, seriously. Call me emotional, but I’m the mom of a 12 years old aspiring animator (and she is good at it). I my daughter thought about trying to make some money here like I do once she’s old enough. But after seeing this…it will be a big no, no from me.

If you share it on Twitter with some good hashtags, it could get noticed even if you don’t have many followers.

Of course, I’d also advise caution, I’m not sure what kind of trouble (legal and otherwise) you could get into if you do it.

Well, no, your reaction is completely understandable.

Adult, Nudity and â– â– â– â– â– â–  Activity

Explicit content meant to be sexually gratifying is not allowed on Fiverr. If detected or reported, sexually explicit content will be blocked and participants could be banned from the marketplace. Gigs and deliveries portraying violent, graphic, or humiliating fetishes are also not allowed.

Sexually explicit content featuring minors and content that seeks to sexually exploit minors is prohibited on Fiverr. We immediately report content that violates this policy to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, who work with global law enforcement agencies.

The above is from the Community Guidelines.

If you see this type of content it should be reported, as it’s a violation of the terms on Fiverr.

That’s disgusting.
Absolutely - insert curse words in all my languages gere - disgusting.
I have seen a few very NSFW drawings on site with adults on them - which I stand by that should be fine but regulated - but never with children. It’s twisted that the site didn’t do anything.
(CS does nothing. I’ve reported several paedophilic (potentially) BRs and the answer was 'block them but we’ll deal with it.
Honestly I think fiverr should either regulate children on the site (and properly with ID proof) or adult content (since we are allowed to sell it) somehow. (Still the drawing you saw shouldn’t be allowed but yeah…)

Yeah, thanks for the tip. If I do that, I’ll surely write a script and plan ahead to make sure I’m on the safer side.

I already reported it one week ago. Maybe they didn’t get the time to get to my report, so I’ll maybe wait a little longer. But on this type of report they should be way faster to remove it.

The Trust and Safety team probably gets thousands of reports every day, so I’m guessing they have a big workload. You could also contact customer support directly to let them know, since the content you’re describing could be considered child pornography in certain countries, and could mean Fiverr would be liable for legal action. I’m sure they would appreciate it if you report it manually as well.

Ok, well here is what I’m going to do. I’ll wait another week, then if they do nothing I contact customer support directly and then, depending on the type of answer I get, I’ll see what I do with the video idea, even if it means loosing my account. I don’t care, I just don’t want to be associated with a website that allows that kind of stuff.

Edit: Oh and **** it, I’ll contact them directly right now, this drawing have already been there for a month now. This kind of stuff should be removed ASAP. I’ll let you know what type of answer I get.

Maybe Fiverr forgot to check that account’s Gig Gallery image…

I understand you… So cringe, NSFW and hentai drawn with low age caracters by unpunished pedophiles… he will get my report to if I find him.

I don’t find a child showing his penis offensive, unless in an obvious suggestive manner… Also, the gallery has to be look at as a whole, to understand whether it’s bad faith.

We are not talking about artistic nude here. It has nothing to do with the image you just shown. Can I post a screen shot of it if I censor it? Is this allowed?

Please do not share any lewd content related to this thread, i can see this getting out of hand very quickly. Report it to CS.

I was curious and asked for the link. Saw it.
Yes. That image is quite suggestive. I’ll report it as well.
