They lost nothing after withdrawing Good Fit Feature but for the case of Connects, there's a business done on this, so withdrawing this feauture, means withdrawing the income they've started to earn by charging $1/Job.

WRONG.  They did not get rid of the "Good Fit" feature, I don't know where you're getting that one.  Just applied to a position today and it clearly listed "Good Fit."  Please check your remarks for accountability before making them.

 Actually, they did get rid of it but for some reason its made a comeback. Garnor said it was a bug and we shouldn't be seeing it anymore but it still pops up now and then.

Hi Ray C,

As outlined in our Help documentation and mentioned in our Blog post when Connects were announced, most jobs will require 2 Connects. We're exploring ways to make this even more prominent to avoid any confusion.

You say "most" which means not all, but can you show me even one job that is anything but 2 connects to apply.

Garnor,

 

Then why not just make "connects" more "valuable" and end the misleading large number? Just give 30 Connects and stop the deception.

Hi Ray,

As mentioned in our documentation, at some point you may see jobs requiring anywhere from 1 to 5 Connects, thus reducing everyone to 30 Connects would make it harder to budget for this scenario. Additionally, in reviewing application activity before this change, we found most high quality freelancers submitted fewer than 30 applications per month, again reinforcing the decision around 60 Connects for the Basic membership.
