As a nerd, I already know the way to their hearts with my knowledge of D&D and other customs.
The bigger issue here (nerd or not) isn’t so much what Fiverr’s doing. Aside from the review system, I think it’s doing a good job and it is trying to fix some horrible issues. What a lot of sellers here seem to forget is that it’s just a platform. On any given day you’ll come here and see a whine about no sells or whatever, when the reality is that for whatever reason the editorial focus has shifted. Hopefully not for long, but when it does, you have a choice: make a new gig, refocus, target BR, do some external promotion… ultimately, it’s all on the seller at the end of the day. The platform’s busy and cracking down on bad sellers. A lot of others are getting caught in the crossfire.
The biggest issue to my mind is more that people aren’t accepting their own role in all of this: it’s your business. Why on earth would anyone celebrate an automated milestone on a forum? Buy a house or a car, I feel the same way still, but there’s more reason there. But “HEY GUYS I MAKE LVL 1!” followed by “I make no sales since Level 2” is really just highlighting a very specific ignorance of how a platform serving millions works–and no, it doesn’t care about you, it cares about everyone and ultimately, its own profits.
Now, I’m a smartass, but sometimes you just gotta listen to people who know better. Whether that’s because they bullshit better than you or can code/design whatever better than you, then listen. Nerds definitely are bad (in general) at marketing. The smart ones get on with the code and let a bullshitter do the bullshit, and vice-versa.
Otherwise, you end up posting on the forum about how you can’t get a job and can Fiverr change it all for you, then getting upset later on when, oh, I don’t know, you can’t access BR or your own message box because you don’t know how it all works, all while leaning on another to help you.
I hope that Fiverr’s changes squash out a lot of this silly behavior. In the meantime, as in all business, focus on what you do best, hire someone else to do what they do best.
