Sorry Roman, didn't want to create any confusion about the 10/10 private feedback. 

 

I was speaking in general: any actions that a freelancer might ask the client to perform in order to improve the freelancer's profile.

No worries Christian. Recommendation isnt only in the score. It could also act as a referal to a friend. Which happens all the time in the creative and entertainment category. Again , I believe there is nothing wrong with asking for a great feedback if you deserve one.

I suspect once a moderator sees this you're going to be in a world of trouble when they go and look at your correspondence with clients.

Hi Jean, 

 

I guess I am already since I am feeling your wrath already. It was a hypothetical message of how I would message my client to close account and ask for feedback. In all seriousness, if you do a good job do you really not ask for a good feedback?

You basically have violated the rules here with all the things you suggested and I suspect your entire account will get reviewed by risk management now. This is a HUGE no-no on Upwork and recommending others do it just adds to the problems you "might" face now. I suspect they will review everything in your messaging and chat area now.

Don't get too scared now Roman. Just don't do what you indicated, or suggest it to anyone else.

Basically where I think you're going wrong is that it's up to the client,  not you, to decide whether a project was successful: and whether you deserve what you think you do.  They might have a different opinion of how the job went.

A suspension implys a chance to get your account back.

Don't sweat it, man. You'll be fine. I don't ask for feedback myself, but I certainly understand why freelancers feel the pressure to do so. On one had Upwork says to ask for feedback. On the other, they say don't ask for positive feedback but put a lot of pressure on people about an opaque JS score.

 

At least you didn't try to hijack code for stars. I LOL'd at this story I read a while ago.
