Another Elancer takes the blue pill...

Just fell through the rabbit hole with my eLance history in tow… and it is actually greener over on this side; so much greener that I’m wearing my grandma’s old rose-tinted 60’s shades.

 

So I see that all of my eLance job history (static print screens) has made it in as did most of my elance stats. 96% JS, 89% recommend, over 8k earned in 12 months and a 100% profile is looking good -  however, I’m told that I am ‘almost’ TOP RATED. What more do I need to get that badge?

 

And, I have a 55% repeat off my 23 clients on eLance, yet here the long-term clients score shows a measly 0%. What gives?

@ Carlton

 

Welcome to the nut house. Smiley Happy

 

You need a 90% for the little green badgy.

Thank you, Irene.

 

Nut house might be just right... I went nuts making my first proposal here and also had to post these forum comments more than once to get them to show. Yee-haw!

 

I have a 96% JS score, fresh over from eLance, but maybe that'll crash soon enough. Smiley Frustrated

It's been week and I haven't regretting passing up on the red pill yet. 

 

Found four job postings decent enough to bid 8 connects on, and am in the process of being interviewed by one potential customer. 

 

Been wondering why this €“ stuff keeps popping up between words in the proposal? Any insight on how to avoid this unprofessional looking irritant?

Welcome to Upwork, Carlton! We are glad to see you in the Community. 

 

It's great that you profile got transferred completely and without any issues. Since you meet all the requirements for Top Rated, you should be getting the badge with the next Job Success score update.

 

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you, Valeria. Sounds good. Smiley Happy

 

And how about that long term 0% thing?

 It is a known issue that is scheduled to be fixed within the next two weeks. Sorry about the inconvenience.
