    Has anyone here use Fiverr.com?

    I have found another website called Fiverr.com. I was wondering if fellow hubbers have experience on this website.

    Re:  Logo's from Fiverr.com (This is my only experience). I wish I could report that I had success with Fiverr.com and in a way I did.  I needed a logo and saw a question here on hubpages regarding getting a logo.  Someone mentioned using Fiverr, so I thought I'd give it a whirl.  I don't like under-cutting a person for their work, so for the logo, I ordered a few extra features, bringning my cost to $30.  I was asked to pick out several designs I liked.  However, I was careful to add specifically what I needed to match my website.  The logo I first received was EXACTLY like the one I had tried to use as a sample, but the colors clashed with my website.  You can request modifications which I did, but I had a hard time communicating by email what I needed.  I think there might have been a language barrier.  I finally decided to not request any more modifications and reasoned that while I couldn't use that logo on my website, it might be ok for business cards or something.  So I thought, well, I'll try another person and wrote, again, that I needed the logo to fit in with the colors of my website. The letters in the logo I received did fit ok this time, but the image of a graduation cap which I requested looked very old fashioned.  I just looked now and I still can't tell from the website if my credit card was charged or not since this person never really got back to me regarding a modification.  Maybe other people have had better success in different areas of fiverr.  I don't exactly embrace the concept because all of us are working ourselves for too little and expecting too much when  it's time for us to pay. In my opinion, it's a vicious cycle that's causing the economic gap to get wider and wider between the weathy and the poor.

      Thank you Billie for your reply. I am asking this because I signed up with them as a translator and hoping to learn more about Fiverr.com. I am sorry you have a bad experience as a buyer with them.

    Get ready for some high speed drifting action as you race against the clock to finish first and become the King of Drift
    King of Drift is a drift community sharing page.
    Modern drifting as a sport started out as a racing technique popular in the All Japan Touring Car Championship races. Motorcycling legend turned driver, Kunimitsu Takahashi, was the foremost creator of drifting techniques in the 1970s. He is noted for hitting the apex (the point where the car is closest to the inside of a turn) at high speed and then drifting through the corner, preserving a high exit speed. This earned him several championships and a legion of fans who enjoyed the spectacle of smoking tires. The bias ply racing tires of the 1960s-1980s lent themselves to driving styles with a high slip angle. As professional racers in Japan drove this way, so did the street racers.
    Keiichi Tsuchiya (known as the Dorikin/Drift King) became particularly interested by Takahashi’s drift techniques. Tsuchiya began practicing his drifting skills on the mountain roads of Japan, and quickly gained a reputation amongst the racing crowd. In 1987, several popular car magazines and tuning garages agreed to produce a video of Tsuchiya’s drifting skills. The video, known as Pluspy, became a hit and inspired many of the professional drifting drivers on the circuits today. In 1988, alongside Option magazine founder and chief editor Daijiro Inada, he would help to organize one of the first events specifically for drifting called the D1 Grand Prix. He also drifted every turn in Tsukuba Circuit in Japan.
    D1 Grand Prix:
    The D1 Grand Prix (D1グランプリ D1 guranpuri?), abbreviated as D1GP and subtitled Professional Drift, is a production car drifting series from Japan. After several years of hosting amateur drifting contests, Option magazine & Tokyo Auto Salon founder Daijiro Inada, and drifting legend Keiichi Tsuchiya hosted a professional level drifting contest in 1999 and 2000 to feed on the ever increasing skills of drifting drivers who were dominating drifting contests in various parts of Japan. In October 2000 Inada and Tsuchiya reformed the contest as a five round series. At the following year for the following round, it was the introduction of the two car tsuiou battle, run in a single-elimination tournament format, a common tradition for tōge races which would become popular with car enthusiasts.
