Top rated freelancers are Auto Hidden Applicants

I recently posted a job on Upwork to get it done and as a result got number of applicants in quick time. On going through the applicants I found out there are number of freelancers who are labeled as "Best Match" or showing in applicant list who do not meet my job qualification criteria. Whereas, Top Rated freelancer meeting all my job qualification criteria is Auto Archived. This is a serious concern I find on quality of freelancers Upwork recommends.

Hello Shahrukh.

 

Are you saying, that every Top Rated freelancer, who applied to your job was archived in the first place?

 

Best Regards.

Hi Shahrukh,

 

I checked and see the proposal you're referring to wasn't archived, which is not a process we use on Upwork, and is displayed on the same list as other proposals.

 In a parallel Universe, this may be true.

Applicants that don't meet the nebulous "best match" algorithm criteria are hidden beneath a "show more" link. but they're not automatically archived.
