New theme is sparkling and appealing. I miss to see list view of the categories as it was easy with old theme to jump to particular category with a click than search.

Cool -what can I say that hasn't been said already?

Still getting used to it.

I've noticed a couple little bugs here & there. Since this is still in Beta, do you have a Thread open where Users can report any Bugs to the Dev dept.?

I will try to get some quick Tutorials and/or Videos made that feature some of the Functions of the New Theme.

One Feature that has been REALLY helpful is the "Search" Function in our Affiliate Section.

Especially now that the New Theme only shows 50/100 Affiliates at a time - for someone such as myself who receives 20+ New Affiliates per day and over 1,500 TOTAL, I don't have to spend time browsing through hundreds of names to verify whether someone is my affiliate or not.

Just wondering whether the New Open ID Signup Function effects our acquisition of Affiliates via the Signup Page??

BTW- the $10 Coupon is obviously for NEW Members ONLY Correct? Does it expire? If so when?

Ya, I bought a few things and got 20% back yesterday (meaning Monster Backlinks simply allowed the Transaction without taking a Commission)
Pretty generous of them considering all the work that has been put into the new Theme.

One Function I am still waiting for is the Ability for Sellers to issue Partial Refunds.

I find the need to do this sometimes when perhaps a Customer orders a Gig "extra" that they didn't want - or if only Part of the Order could be fulfilled.

Or if a Customer isn't 100% Satisfied with a particular part of the service - but maybe let's say they're ok with 80% of it.

Or maybe when the Order took a little longer than expected - that's when it would be a nice Gesture to offer a 20% Partial Refund.

----------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------- -------------------------------

I also think Instant Payments for Sellers (with NO Clearing time -NO Escrow) should be something to Consider (perhaps for Level X only).

This means, the moment the Buyer places an order, the funds appear in Seller's Paypal account. (why not? Many other Sites do it. eBay, etc.)

How would this benefit the Clerk Community?

If Sellers had access to Funds PRIOR to Performing their Job, it means they won't have to "Front" the Funds & Resources it takes to Complete the job themselves.

Therefore, they would be able to lower their Prices and provide a higher quality Service for the buyer.

This would especially help Sellers (or ReSellers) who Outsource Services lower their prices.

In fact, one of my TOP SELLING Services is one that I outsource to a Specialist who works exclusively with ME ONLY (NOT on Fiverr- I don't ever use that crappy ass Site)

I charge about $30 bucks right now since I have to Float the Funds for 3 weeks. But if I was Paid instantly, I'd be able to Lower the Price by MORE than HALF!!

That would attract more Buyers wouldn't it?

Sure Monster Backlinks would make less on the commission per sale, but there'd be MORE Sales if prices were lower, right??

Yes, I know it could potentially cause problems when it comes to Buyer Disputes, but like I said, this would be for Level X, Y, or maybe even Z Sellers ONLY!! - in which case any funds can be subtracted from proceeding Sales.

Just a thought
