Not sure which bit you mean, but that probably doesn't matter as none of it is a joke. It's long been possible to click 'hire now' on a profile. And it won't take long for people to catch on.
Oddly, if you read the help pages on how to hire, it isn't mentioned there. So I guess it was easy to forget. Whatever, I'm certainly being far more vigilant in using the 'unavailable' thingy when I get busy.
Oh ... I'm sorry. I didn't mean to sound flippant.
I don't know what happens when someone clicks "Hire Me" - I've always assumed it's the same as getting an invite and the freelancer has a chance to "interview" and either accept or not. But from what you posted, that's not the case.
I've never had a job awarded to me via the "hire me" button (not that I can remember). So what if it wasn't a job someone wanted to accept? Then what happens? Not expecting you to answer that ... just wondering out loud.
