There was a new announcement yesterday in the "Announcements" and it seems everyone when they are not happy with something are all over an announcement, but when something positive is posted no one acknowldges it.
Updates to Rate Calculator and Follow Up on Earnings Display
They announced updates to the rate calculater and that earnings display will be showing Gross here again soon. I think oDesk deserves a kudos for trying to listen and fix some things.
It just seems there are a lot of complaints but not much acknowledgement on good things.
The also clarified tax information for freelancers. Which has been an ongoing discussion for some time. Thank you oDesk for clarification.
Suzanne, thanks for the link. See my comments on the original thread.
By the way, of course there are going to be more complaints than compliments here in the Community. Many members have had to resort to posting in the Community as a result of deteriorating support on the core site. A "negative" trend has been set and would take a lot of concentrated effort to change.
In addition, tracking posts here in the Community is a challenge. There are too many posts that are essentially duplicates of other posts. A lot of us are guilty of that unwanted practice.
