    I wanted a kick start at fiverr and started a $1 gig thread offering my AMR blasts. But strangely the thread was deleted in -literally- 2 minutes.

    I'm not trying to make profit. I just need some help from the fellow members. Is this against the rules?

    I still see a couple of older $1 gig threads but mine got deleted immediately. Is it because of AMR? Or the fiverr link?

    Any ideas?

    Regards,

    I guess this is self promotion and it's against the rules unless you setup a propper thread.

    Maybe someone reported your gig.

    Starting sales threads outside the BST violates section 3.6 of the forum rules. If the other threads you found are outside the BST you can report them. Whether your sales thread earns you money or not isn't the point. The only exception I've seen is if someone has a one-off offer like they want to sell their AMR license then Mods will usually let it slide. However if they get caught selling many licenses then they're banned typically. Good luck and you can always PM a mod in the section you posted if you want more clarification. If you violated a rule you're lucky they just yanked the thread and didn't ban your account.

    Why $1?
    Why do something you are not going to make money from?

    I still don't get you on setting up AMR for $1, do you intend running article submission for one dollar? If yes, the best you can do is to offer more submissions/urls.

    You have to go by a certain procedure and be approved to post threads like that. The directions are on this site somewhere. PM me your fiverr link. I'll help you and give you good feedback if you follow through on the gig.

    I got the impression that he wants to build up his fiverr reputation and needs some help.
