Is "profile not public" the same as "profile suspended?" Or do you know something we don't?

 No, profile not public has nothing to do with suspensions, but there is a major hint on another thread...

Reinier, see under Clients.  I believe a mod was the last to post.

 

As far as where Chris is or not doesn't make any difference to the content of what he wrote.  His words were accurate.

I would like to say that price isn't a concern for clients, except that I'm turning down about ten jobs a week because the quoted pay rate just isn't high enough. I don't work for peanuts, and don't see why I should.

 Why do you turn them down instead of just saying "YES, I'd love to" and accept the request at your own price? Invites don't cost you any connects, what do you have to lose?

 Like Petra said: Just put in your rate and see what happens.

 

I do this all the time, you never know if the client has just put in a holder price. Sometimes they just don't know how much work it will take, and thus they don't really know the true end cost.

Quite of few of those are explicit prices where it's clear they don't have a placeholder. I just give them the "budget too low" response and move on.

Petra's suggestion is right on.

 

I say yes to all kinds of terrible offers. I simply name my own price.

 

Sometimes they pay my price, and I work on the project.


Sometimes they don't want to pay my price and I wish them well (no hard feelings), but I don't work with them.
