I totally agree with you, Mr. Jose.

10 Free connects are too little especially for old members. To get a good job, we need at least 6 connects.

For sure, Jose. 10 credits is half the smallest bundle we are forced to buy.  Even some people working for a few dollars an hour have to use 6 connects. It's a tiny, almost meaningless concession by them.

Even it is meaningless but if upwork commitee and management will decide
then may be advisable to followed

Daniel, why would anyone want to do freelance and get paid nickles only? Better to get a day job instead... right?

Totally agree with you. 

When I started on UpWork they were still giving 60 Connects every month and as a new freelancer, it is very hard to win jobs.

After they implemented the pay-per-Connects model, I`ve stopped using the platform just like many others. 

10 Connects it is nothing. it goes in 10 minutes or less of applying.

They should just go back to the old 60 Connects free monthly plan if they want to keep talent on the platform.

Giving free connects for nothing will increase useless biddings to the projects and hard for good artist who are serious about there work to get the job, and will decrease the overall experience of freelancer and the contracteres on this platform.
I have seen artist working for 10$ for the job 500$ just to get the job and they dont even give a good quality work back.
I appriciate upwork for being upgrading time to time and keeping the **Edited for Community Guidelines**
