Extending the time before you can retake a Skills Test

I would love to know in a couple of months if the amount of tests taken is lower/higher now that there's a 90d waiting period. Is there anyone I can bug with this information in the future?


EDIT: I'm referring for first time tests, not second or third chances of the same test. My initial thought is that a longer period time might discourage people to take tests.

The initial thread asked for a vote on increasing to 90 days. There were two people in favor of the increase, everyone else said to leave as is or even shorten it. If it was ligitimately up for a vote, why was the feedback not honored?

Hi Nicole,


When the original announcement was posted the time it took to re-take the test was 30 days and it had been decided that the "waiting period" had to be extended. The decision was based on user feedback we received not only in the Community but also from other channels as well as on other metrics. We wanted to gather input for whether Upwork users preferred for the waiting period to be 90 or 180 days. Based on feedback we received, the waiting period was set to be 90 days.


Thank you.
