Pretesth B. I am so with you on this!!!
And hey I just got a great idea!
Let's start a new website for only newbie freelancers: NoobLance
That's where everyone has an equally fair chance of realizing they should not do freelance because of poor communication skills, non-existing business skills, missing expectation management, or just not having any execution skills worth a dime, all offered completely free! Unlimited proposals, no identity verification, no nothing. Just a jungle.
Also, we could advertise this NoobLance worldwide for having the cheapest freelancers with a disclaimer saying we don't guarantee any work done properly at all but you still have to opportunity to waste your money as much as you want. But we promise that in a haystack of 1,000 proposals you can just pick randomly, since you get the same "quality work" anyway from any of the noob lancers. 😉
Shall we? I'll do the coding! For free!!! 🤣
Hi Pretesh B,
Contracters come here looking for good, cheap jobs, and complain that to get them you have to do your homework in applying selection criteria. The freelancer pays 20% plus the credits he buys and the contracter 3% and complains about spam!
Protectionist measures create dinosaurs that are doomed to extinction.
-I would like to be able to apply something similar to "Google", type 1cts for each email exchanged, to see what your path of success would be.
-Let natural selection do its job.
Exchange of ideas and ways of seeing, generate progress, let people be aware!
As I said before, I am happy to see successful people at UpWork, this is undoubtedly something positive that comes from a symbiosis of both sides, contractors and Freelancers.
I am also happy to see people who skipped the step of being initiated here at UpWork, go to the veterans class right away! This is even better for UpWork.
As I mentioned, UpWork must have ways to see its direction and make decisions according to the indicators, they should not be based on my mere opinion, because I must make it clear that I never earned a penny on UpWork.
I am out of the debate, not least because it is no longer a debate, it is an imposition of convictions or insults based on character error.
But most of all I am happy that UpWork is present and brings all the parties together!
