    Well this is the 2nd time after i paid for a job they closed my account.

    the only common item was both jobs were for my web gigs site (same site like Fiverr)

    So they took my money and closed my account twice!! WTF!! :confused:

    You are obviously pissing them off by showing a competing website on their pages.

    Agreed. I don't really see how Fiverr screwed you. You are "advertising" a competitor of them and in their mind possibly stealing sellers. Do you think Blackhatworld would let me open a WTB thread for my own Blackhat SEO Forum? This has to be a joke thread or a troll job, or possibly you are just looking for more ways to advertise your gigs site. Tell us you aren't seriously feeling screwed by Fiverr.

    If you purchase the gig from them, Fiverr gets $1.00, and possibly loses a seller who brings them tons of recurring income if they migrate over to your site.

    No offense OP, but if I'd be a Fiverr mod/admin, I'd do the same. You're a cancer for them, so they removed you. I said no offense :/

    No shit OP :D Hahahh!

    I would have done the same thing ... You should find a more discrete way of cross selling your gigs site on fiverr.

    Same thing happened to me.

    I wanted to get some stuff going for my site (site like fiverr) and they kicked me out !
    Legit but they didn't like it i guess. How can they be afraid of the competition. They are SO BIG anyways !
    10$ down the toilet

    What kind of gig did you offer exactly, that needed you to direct people to your competing gigs site?

    I needed twitter followers to my twitter account but it's related to my gig site.
    The hell with it... I moved on
