Thanks Vladimir. 

I believe I'm not the only one not happy about being forced to create specialized profile...

Thanks, Sanja. Just to clarify, I'm aware of the feedback we received from some other freelancers. The information I shared in my response to your post can also benefit other users, who might not be aware of our previous conversations or the roadmap and actions our dedicated team is taking while developing this feature further. I understand the problem and your sentiment towards the Specialized Profiles feature, and that has been shared with our team. I'd like to confirm we are getting positive feedback from both freelancers and clients, and are also seeing positive results when reviewing the metrics we're monitoring.

Hello,

 

I would like to know (step-by-step) how to delete my specialized profile.

 

Thank you

Hi,

I created a specialized profile that I want to delete. It’s only in the draft stage but there is no button anywhere to delete it. Can someone please help? I keep making changes on the wrong page and it’s getting very confusing. Thanks!

Hi Concetta and Kishion,

 

I checked your account, and it looks like you only have one specialized profile. The option to delete the specialized profile is not available in this case, and this is by design. We are now encouraging users to have a specialized profile so we want to ensure everybody owns at least one. Thank you.

Again with the "encouragement"—or what in standard English is known as compulsion or coercion.

Joanne - In an Upwork help section, it says I can't delete a specialized profile if I have only one - but that I can unpublish it so it won't appear on my profile. There is no ability to do that on my new profile page and I would like to know why. I do not want a specialized profile and I want to know why I am being forced to have it. If I don't get a transparent answer, I will write to the President of Upwork to see if she can give me one.
