Hey Miroslav - thanks for the feedback!


Will add that criteria to our filter list [payment verified]. Although... in thinking about this, I'm making a note to check to see if we scan for verbiage that alludes to providing free work in the proposal.

The two jobs marked "interesting" in my latest search weren't even in the right category - coding jobs listed in graphic design, super low fixed price budgets. What is the point?

i see this post is from 2016.  Sorry, I am late in asking Smiley Happy


I saw this for the first time today, 1/7/2018.  Unsure what it means?  It is attached to a posting about 18 days old.

Hi Chris,


This job may potentially be interesting for you based on the searches you've saved and your profile. Feel free to apply to it if you are interested, if not, you can skip it.

Can you just make an option where freelancer can turn off this what so called "interesting job". Because  it is totally annoying in my part. It keep on posting job post that was totally forgotten. I am not interested with a job post that was over 4 months or weeks.

Apologies if this has been mentioned somewhere else in the thread, but don't forget to factor in the possibility that people are clicking on that particular job BECAUSE it has a big blue "interesting job" banner.


Actual proposals might be a better measure than clicks.

Update. Now I saw an Interesting Job which requires knowledge of skills I don't possess. They used tags mentioning skills which exclude me. Can this feature become more personalized taking advantage from skill tags?
