I hope I am not abusing the system if I just take the opportunity to wish all the staff at Upwork a very Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays, if you are of a different persuasion), and to show gratitude for everything you do all year round.
My best wishes also to all the contributors that help make this community forum an invaluable resource for freelancers and clients alike.
Today is a day of giving, so I want to give you all my thanks.
Why would wishing someone "Merry Christmas" possibly be against community guidelines? From one freelancer to another, Merry Christmas to you and the entire Community as well.
.... and no, to get back to work.
Well, I wrote that because I understand that this forum is used mainly to answer work or platform-realted queries, and was unsure as to whether it was a suitable vehicle for exchanging pleasantries. In any case, thank you for the reply, and I hope your Christmas was also a good one.
