Hi, dear community! Please, help me to solve this situation. And share if there any way to appeal supports unfair decision.
3 weeks ago, exactly on holidays! my UpWork account been suspended indefinitely due to "high number of proposals for jobs on our site without many contracts or earnings" as they said. I alredy appeal this, but no any person could explain me real thing. I already has clients i work with, yeah, i defenetly search for more clients and send proposals, i thought it's the matter of this platform.... and I can't understand that reason. So, if their site such oversaturated with low-rate workers and clients just ignore my proposals as i have no "top rated" bage yet... it's my fault? O_o really?

I do freelance work on non-regular basis as i have day job, but freelance do good income and i wnat to continue. So, please, help to restore my acc =(

I definitely agree with you, it’s totally unfair. Btw, what’s your niche? How often do you get hired compared to your proposals? How often do you get interviewed?
I have no “work history” yet. Getting the first job is always difficult. I’m trying my best to build an outstanding portfolio to show off my skills, but still I have only one worthless invitation and no responses to my proposals... (I submit at least 1 proposal a day) I’m living in fear of getting suspended Smiley Sad

Hi, Max! I'm here on UpWork for 7 months already and had only 2 jobs from here (it gave me over 1k$ though, so no reason to complain). I also freelance outside, but this doesn't matter now. So, i submited about 3 times a week in december, it's even not consume whole limit of proposals. I sent a lot in august without any luck though.

My main specialisation is VO audio editing and audio restoration, but i also do sound desing for games and films and field recording. Here poeple seek for cheap rates and mainly they ignore my 25$ per hour though it's fair price. I've consulted with many collegues before fixing this particular rate. 

Now i exhausted and upset due to situation and don't know what to do - or just leave UpWork and try to find clients outside, or continue to fight and finally un-suspend my acc.

I’ve read some threads about account suspending by too many unanswered proposals and find out what most of them were copy-pasting their cover letters. Have you done such thing? If so, that’s why you’ve got suspended... Smiley Sad

NO! Definetly NO! I wrote every proposal from scratch. Sure, i use same structure "Greetings - Proposal body - Best regards" But i never just copy and past my previous text. Never! And i been interviewed many times especially last month! That's why i SO surprised and angry... =(
