No, not me. Luckily it was not happened with me (yet!). However I know a lot of people who lost their Upwork accounts because they bid frequently for a few days without winning any projects then oneday Upwork emailed them that their accounts got suspended since they couldn't win a new project for awhile.
So now I would like to know how many bids (without winning a new project) are considered too many in Upwork and can lead an Upwork account to suspension?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi S M Shahriar,
In order to prevent anyone from unfairly bypassing our guidelines, we cannot release specific numbers. Be assured that we do not take action based on isolated incidents of unsuccessful proposals. Only in the unusual case we find a freelancer has been repeatedly submitting many proposals but not winning jobs (or winning few) we take action. Typically, this means the opportunities on Upwork are not a good match for the freelancer’s skillset.
Hi Avery O,
Can you please tell me about the jobs when client hire freelancer directly without submitting a proposal or a client interviewed a freelancer but hire for another job directly. These kind of jobs count as winning jobs or only those number of jobs are important to suspend or not suspend a freelancer that result in submitting proposals to client. I know you can not share specific numbers of jobs or conversion rate but you can explain the situation that is mentioned above.
Hi Goran, I have a friend who was suspended because of this a few years ago. He has gone to improve his skill set and recently acquired a masters degree in Engineering Management in addition to his previous degree in Civil Engineering. How can he get his profile suspension lifted now that this rule has been lifted? I've read a lot of posts here and I understand you can not discuss another user's situation to someone else. I'm only asking here becaus he sent an email to customer support and hasn't gotten a response so he asked me to find out here.
What steps can he take next? It's a little urgent as I need him on my agency team.

Nice try! Good luck.
Nice try? He got suspended because he bid on too many projects without getting awarded. This was the specific reason they gave in the email they sent to him. I saw this thread and the previous posts suggested they have discontinued suspending people for this particular reason. No offence but if you have nothing good or constructive to say, it would have been better to just say nothing as opposed to a sarcatic response.
