Am I visible? Good profile: no invitations, no responses, no contracts.

I am going to disagree. I have seen too many projects with numbers bigger than 3, some greater than 10. To me, that means the client really doesn't care about reading a proposal and looking at how freelancer can help, but more wanting to look in a phone book and taking the first 3 listed.

 

I will admit that since I rarely rely on invitations, I maybe really biased.

 

There might be differences based on the type of projects and that might change my mind about this issue, but for my group, I would rather it be limited. Maybe 3 is too small, maybe 5 is ok. Also, maybe the client could have a way to have 3 active invitations and add another if somehow one of the 3 is no longer considered. I just thing think there needs to be some limit to help focus more on getting a good freelancer for the client.

Robert, that's unfortunately not what the limit is about--it's about getting clients to pay. Those who are willing to fork over $49.99 for a monthly membership can send a great many more.

Totally agree - I think that this would be a lot better.
