In my previous experiences I found that the proposals hidden are almost always irrelevant. Usually they were proposals from cookie-cutter spammers whose profiles had absolutely nothing to do with the job posting, or a freelancer or two with extremely low JSS (like 60% and below), and they were almost certainly full-time spammers. Of course, that was in the days of free connects. But, of course, the proposals are not hidden in the real sense of the word, you can see them if you want to by clicking on the drop-down. Yes, a client can choose to hire from the "irrelevant" proposal. if they so wish.


Sure, if you know it's there. I noticed it on my third or fourth pass through the list. And, if you know enough about how poor Upwork's algorithms are to disregard their warning that the proposals are irrelevant.

 

None of that is really the point, though. Mine was that it's disingenuous to say "we're not hiding proposals"--when they were being archived, clients also had the ability to choose to click through to them and hire from them, yet that's being referred to as "hidden".

Sorry, but anybody in digital marketing knows that if the default is set to "Only US Freelancers" that you have to click a button if you do not just want to see US based freelancers it is a clear advantage for US freelancers versa the rest of us - fair would be if the default setting would be set to all and there was a button to click if you want US freelancers only

@ Tiffany and Rene - from the sound of it Rene's RFP was posted sometime in the past; Tiffany's RFP  was posted within the last few days.  This might explain why you are seeing different things ...

My RFP was posted two or three days ago.

All,

 

This thread has been closed from further replies as it discusses a process that's no longer in place.

 

Thanks!
