I started using upwork last month and my account got suspended due to high number of proposals for jobs on our site without many contracts or earnings. 

 

I got hired for one project and got 5 star rating and even received bonus. As I recently started using upwork and had no idea that submiting high number of same proposals can result in suspension of my account.

 

As I wasn't voilating any of the terms of the upwork. I was really thinking of making my carrier over here.

 It is highly discouraged to copy/paste proposals. Firstly, it is not good business practise, secondly, upwork recognizes it as spamming and does not like that.

'copy/paste proposals' means sending the same proposal to all the clients.

 

I don't think there is a strict guideline as to what is construed as a 'high number' of proposals. But, if someone sends too many copy/paste proposals, then it's considered spamming.

using the same text in all proposals and not tailoring the text to the specific job posting.

I don't know.
