Hye Dear, After upwork  site maintainance i haven't seen the feature of "Not hiring by client, connections will be returned "
Is this feature has been removed ?? Or Is there any Catagorised client who has priority on not hiring nothing happened, but all freelancers will lost their connections.
I am sure, I will get your help to be clear about this issue.

These days i have lost many connects on jobs, client did not hire anyone, it seems these are fake jobs or clients.

Now i am afraid of losing more connects by applying on new jobs.

This request to Upwork to please take notice of this with a permanent solution.

Thank You

Hello everyone, and especially Upwork reps!

Please confirm that the feature you were rolling out not that long ago has been withdrawn and you decided to stop refunding the connects for the jobs that ended up with 0 interviews or those where nobody has been hired for.

I recall I used to receive my connects back when some random people asked for quotes and then never ever replied back to anybody, or never ever had intention to hire anyone - just used Upwork as a forum to ask questions.

Thanks,
Arty

Hi...

 

I remember seeing somehwere that UpWork is going (or planning) to refund connects on jobs where client doesn't hire any freelancer. 

 

Anyone has update on this ? 

 

We should have this policy/feature roll out to prod as soon as possible. This is very unfair to freelancers, cuase first we have to buy the connects and then there are many jobs where clients just post the job and then forget about it, and we end up loosing our connects !

They tried it, didn't like it, and it was discontinued.
