I'm just really curious as to how many unsatisfied freelancers are fixing to leave. I will be canceling my profile this week and was wondering if you are too.

 

20% is a cashgrab for a sinking ship. I thought 10% was alread too much, but 20% is shameless. So you sticking around or heading out?

Nope.  I have landed several new projects, haven't raised my rates.  Racking in the clients and the money.  Staying right here.

Nah, I think I'll stay. I pretty much hate the other freelancing websites.

I'm good. With all the benefits and opportunities, I just can't get worked up about a maximum of an extra $50/client.

It's really funny watching the screamers say they're leaving just to show up 6 months later to complain about something else.

I'm hoping that people don't cancel their accounts in a huff without exploring how well other options work out, since the current profile approval process may well prevent them from coming back if it doesn't work out.

It's stupid to burn this bridge. Too much money to make here.

No way I'm leaving.  This has been and continues to be a great income stream for me.
