Done extra Connects to others

Dear fellow Upworkers,

 

How would you like a feature that would allow you to donate your extra Connects to other freelancers in the community?

 

The way these Connects seem to work (regardless of what they cost) is that

- most of the well-established freelancers never need to worry about the Connects as they are anyway overloaded with direct invitations.

 

- starting freelancers are always in need of more Connects because of not specifying their niche or not having learned how to write profiles and proposals yet.

 

- those who accept the small monthly fee for Upwork Plus probably don't mind paying for Connects much as they already accepted (quite correctly!) that if their own time is not a sufficient investment to make the business work, then the money is.

 

I'd be happy to donate my extra Connects to newcomers. I'd guess no newcomer would complain. :-)

 

Anyone else thinking like this also?

 

What would the platform representatives think about this, any concerns?
