To be fair I really could have left that out, it is not entirely relevant. To me, it is just frustrating. I just want to have control over how I present MYSELF!
Upwork is just a channel and they get to decide what they want to do with it. The only place you are going to have full control is your own website and marketing directly to your own clients.
I don't think this is a good change even though it has almost no bearing on me whatsoever. Maybe if I had portfolio items I would find more work but I am not sure about that. But I understand the issue.
For me the thing that Upwork does better is it allows me to dictate my own rates. If they ever mess with that, and I am not sure they aren't to some extent with this suggested rates, then I am a GMF.
