Dear Community,

 

Don't you love it when you post a job, as a client of course, and a few freelancers reply with a single URL and nothing more? No cover letter, no introduction, and no mention of anything in your job post.

 

Well, here's the solution: Don't respond with any words, just post the URL below right back.

 

https://isitchristmas.com/

 

Best regards,

LOL, yes, but it really wasn't a joke. I just found that on GitHub a while back after a designer friend of mine used it to answer a job invitation (not on Upwork) asking her to design a 12 page website with a budget of $40. I just used it today for these ridiculous proposals that I get where the FL just pastes a single URL for the job and nothing else. So, I just pasted that single URL and nothing else back. Of course, after hitting 'decline.'

 

IsItChristmas was really just a silly project by a couple of devs, but it seems appropriate in this context. Also, it's definitely not Christmas.

 

Best regards,
