re: "Where do the default suggested Popular Projects come from?"

The Community Forum is too polite a place to allow us to conjecture where the default projects where pulled from.

Hi Will, 

It looks like you have been included in testing this beta feature, and you should be able to find more information on this thread. You should be able to update your Popular Projects, add more information on each project, and update the price range for each, and highlight what projects you want to include in this section of your profile. 


In order to not impact or skew test results, we typically try not to share details about tests while they are ongoing. While I can’t address your questions about this test at this time, we do want and appreciate your feedback. We will be glad to pass your comments on as we work to determine which potential features our customers like and don’t like. Thanks!

Hi Youstina,


Thanks for reaching out to us. I checked but couldn't replicate the issue. The 'Popular projects' section was showing and the option to edit was working. Could you please try clearing your cache and cookies or using a different browser? Let us know if the issue persists so that we can assist you further.


Thank you.

Nice feature. I've gone ahead and added a project, but why only showcase fixed price types of projects?

There's no specification of billing or payment method. Hourly rates are already featured prominently in our profiles. I'm mostly working hourly lately, but I still can (and typically, do as part of the bidding process) estimate the total cost for typical projects.
