Dear Upwork Administration,

 

We, as a freelancer, are happy to pay for the connects because it helps to clean out the junk profiles of fake people.

But you have to pay attention to your JSS, its been a strange thing and now after these years in 2020, I still think its an awful feature. You should atleast treat us in a better way because we pay project fee, and connects and membership cost, and in return we get strange JSS.

Please revise this model.

We don't get bad JSS, we get score as designed. 

Some freelancers manage to keep their JSS high, even with an 'unfair' system like this. 

If you continue to provide great results, if you have good soft skills and you are really good in your work, you will succeed as well.

With competition this high, unfortunately there is not much space for beginners and it can be unforgiving.  




I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

It says I have been eligible for "Top rated" for a while now. (16 0f 16 weeks)

However my profile is 95% complete, I need to add a certificate to get a 100%. The certificate I have is not in the list of certificates provided by Upwork. 

With this said, how can I get my Top Rated badge?

Hey Petra,

please can you look at this my JSS just droped to 96% while im doing all the work as usual it always have been 99-100% so its kinda weird for me to see it drop like this! im currently working on a hourly contract and a long term couple of contracts and a normal contracts from now and then.

and all the idle contracts are already have milestones payed so i think its fine, isnt it ?

also have one contract which is idle and nothing have been payed because unresponsive client, may it cause this ?

please if you have time give my account a look and let me know what made this drop and what should i do to get my JSS back to 99-100%

also i didnt propose for a new jobs for a while because im busy on my current contracrs

thanks a lot

Just so you know, Petra is an extremely well informed freelancer, who is also generous in sharing her time and expertise. She may or may not take requests.

Hi community,

 

With the introduction of ridiculous rules by Upwork, the results of all this are slowly emerging.
I have been a professional freelancer for almost 10 years and this is currently the worst period on the freelancer platform so far (due to poor platform management).

 

All the best and good luck!

Ivan

This Upwork seems to have cracked!
When it was oDesk, one content was one bid.
When Upwork came along, they started inventing something.
First with the funny rules of JSS, and then with the content. It is now necessary depending on the project (and the criteria are ridiculous) 2, 4 or 6 content.

They threw out the monthly amount of bids that follow for free.
They ask for membership plus to be paid or for bids to be paid, so when they see that bids are not being bought, they are given as gifts because a client return the message.
It's not funny anymore, I don't know ...

I have a forest, a garden (almost every family in my "poor" country has that). And my country is considered one of the poorest in Europe.
Despite all that, I don't have to put up with this nonsense being imposed on me.

Upwork, if it doesn't offer me decent working conditions, ie conditions that do not offend intelligence, will not make money on me.

Very, very simple. You won’t make money on me, and I’ve been a professional freelancer for about 10 years.

Best,

Ivan
