Bids on proposals change after I submit mine

Upwork please attend to this.

For the second time In a week, I applied for a job showing 5-10 proposals only to see that after submitting my proposal, there was 20-50 proposals on the same job.

I think this is highly unfair and a means to cheat freelancers. Getting a job is hard enough, it is wicked to trick us into applying for jobs that clients wont even read just for us to spend more connects.

Maybe you didn't refresh the page in your browser. 

To be honest, it naver happened to me, and I placed bids for more than 2000 job for sure.




I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Nobody is trying to cheat you or trick you. Upwork has millions of freelancers, many of whom are anxious for work and spend their day hovering over the jobs feed in order to get their bids in as fast as they can. It's entirely possible for 20-50 other people to see a job - just as you did - and place bids at the same time as you. 

Ok. Thanks
