I asked about the status of this perhaps a or two month ago and, best as I recall, a mod said it was still in process being evaluated.  I think the thread is under Announcements and begun by Lena.

 

I'm so smart!  Smiley Wink  Here you go -

Is it possible for me to have two or three profiles in my account, too?

Hi Avery, I have this option sitting on my profile for a few weeks now, it takes up my whole screen, and there is no option for it to go away. I don't need it, because I have only one skill Smiley Wink

Thanks for kindly telling me. I often find specialized profile and I am also Web and mobile developer. In this case, can I have specialized profile, too?

Hi Vasile, if this is directed to me: I think it is by invitation only, I did nothing and really don't know why I received the option to do it...

Hi Vasile,

 

Thanks for your question. We are beginning to roll out specialized profiles slowly and at this time, most freelancers who have completed mobile development or design & creative projects in the past have been invited to create a specialized profile. We hope to roll out the option to other categories in the coming months. We’ll keep you posted!

 

I merged the thread in which you posted your comments to the announcement one here, so you can check the information we've shared regarding this feature in the meantime and continue to follow new updates.

Ok I don't get it. Specialized profiles are supposed to be available only for those who fall in the Mobile Development and Design & Creative categories, right? How come I'm seeing a HUGE annoying popup on top of my profile, which I can't get rid of? (See screenshot.) Does proofreading and editing fall into those categories?? All the categories I've selected for my profile fall under the Writing category.

Hi Isabelle Anne, 

 

Thank you for your note! You are right that this feature was only meant to be rolled out to folks in the Design and Creative and Mobile Development Categories for now. (We'll be rolling out the options for the rest of the Categories soon.)

 

I apologize - we are using a model to look through profiles in order to determine which users might be interested in these options and you were mistakenly identified! We're still refining this model so that we can invite the right people to the right experiences - your feedback is going to be very helpful! 

 

I'll go ahead and update the experience so that you don't continue to see this prompt to create a Specialized Profile that isn't relevant to you right now. 

 

Thanks again, 

Cary
