Newbie saying hello!

Hello! There, I said it. 

Just pulse checking the forums here to see how things go around here. I'm not so adept at lurking. I posted a scam thing in freelancers. Hindsight being what it is, maybe that should have gone here.

 

I digress.

 

Anything I should know outside of adherence to the community guidelines? Smiley Happy TIA

Hello yourself and welcome. Not much to know except that the only requirement for a guru label is a certain number of posts, but moderators are Upwork employees so they have resources ordinary contributors can’t access, and one of their many duties is consolidating related threads so don’t be perturbed if you post about topics like connects or job success and your post reappears somewhere else.

Welcome!  Check these forums often as there is a  wealth of info here and better to learn from someone else having trouble than having it yourself.

Thanks Julie! That is for certain the truth. I've been scouring the forums for information for this very reason.

You will also find helpful hints for gardening, recipes for smoothies and, obviously as we are on an online platform, pictures of cats.

How come your name in the community is Kymlee and is Kym in your profile?

Maybe we can learn something from a newbie!

Welcome Kymlee!  As with anywhere, you'll notice there's a wide range of personalities here. Spend just a bit of time here, and you'll pretty quickly learn "who's who and what's what."  Enjoy!

So I figured out that when I preview your profile while logged-in to Upwork, this is how you show up:

When I am not logged into Upwork, this is how you show up, with a "Kymlee M." instead of "Kym M." as your name, and with a Rising Talent badge!

Mods: Out of curiosity, why/when does this happen?
