After so many clients reported in the forum with Community Guru, Moderator, or whatever you called, and the issue just goes around here?? Next time, if there is a question about a technicality in the forum, so it is better the Guru, The Moderator should not respond to it whatsoever. That is not their job.
Look at the forum discussion title: Why are the applicants not showing up for me? from the recent post. After all this, still it is not the Moderator, Guru jobs to rectify the issue thoroughly.
I think the job description for the Moderator, Guru should be re-defined.
Other than "moderator", any names such as "guru" that you see attached to freelancers in this forum are only that. They are labels that Upwork, for some unknown reason, gives to freelancers who post a lot in the forum. None of us with these labels (which are gratuitously conferred), have anything to do with Upwork policy or how the site is run - and we are certainly not paid.
The moderators work for Upwork and can be recognized by the Upwork logo next to their names.
I am not sure where job description fits into all this.
Though I have to agree that the labels given to freelancers are confusing and they ought to be scrapped - particularly, as semantically, they do not always fit the bill.
Not true! I posted a project an invited several people to hire a few candidates and finally decide on one. But after hiring the first person, the job was automatically archived and ALL candidates received a "declined". I am very upset about this, because good candidates are now mad at me!
When you made your offer(s), you would have been asked if you wanted to close the job when the person accepted your offer. If you said yes, then yes, all other offers would have been withdrawn and the job closed.

Wow! - here we go again - possibly, with another potential problem that affects freelancer chances of securing work. It's the sort of thing that could be happening frequently - with Clients being unaware of it. After all - why would they visit the archived folder - no need really, they probably just look at the list of applicants - make their choice and move on. Or is there a number displayed alongside the Archived folder? Even then a new client might just ignore it.
Would be good to have more clients posting in the freelancers section so we can find out what's happening.
I asked whether the Clients and Freelancer sections could be combined not long ago - here's link to the thread -

Edited again: As Ela has suggested - can we have a moderator comment please.
It's a bit frustrating that this thread isn't getting much attention. it can't be re-posted on the Freelancer side because it might incur disciplinary action for repetition.
And there's no incentive for a moderator to address this thread because there's little concern. Catch 22 situation.
Edited: Lena - Community Manager - has since replied- thanks : )
