Application Not Even in Hidden Section

I was recently informed by oDesk support guys that a new feature has been introduced by oDesk which will simply never display your application in client applicants section.


Is it True or it's just me ?

Yes it's sort of true.  There is an application hidden list where all the junk applications get sent too.


How they work out who goes on the hidden list no one knows.


The client can still find your application in the hidden list.

Its been going about a year now and a search through old forum posts will show you that it's universally despised, practically unanimously,  by clients and freelancers alike; yet  oDesk are clinging on to it and refuse to accept that it's not helping anybody (though they won't say how or why it is helping anyone...)

I have had a same treatment for my job appications recently. I contacted support only to receive same kind of messages stating - 'system is designed to funtion that way'. My rating is above 4.7 for 36 jobs completed and i received good comments from clients i have worked so far. This is really annoying.

They take a stand on this issue which does not have any grounds firstly. I don' think employers will go to hidden section to search for applicants.
