I started working as a freelancer this year and since the beginning I've been giving all my time. But this month I've been focusing fully on my university studies because soon the semester will be over. I still need to study for two more weeks and then I can get back to freelancing. The problem is that I'm worried my account will get disabled for not using it. Does that happen?


Thank you for your time!

Your account will not be disabled if you don't use it for a while. If you go 30 days without being paid then your profile will be switched to private. That means it won't show up in search but clients who receive proposals from you can still see it. If your profile is switched to private, the email notification you receive from UW will contain a link to request it be switched back (to public or UW Members only, however you had it set before).

Good luck finishing the semester!

Thank you very much for your help!
