Hi there,

Is every one facing same issue? before I apply few jobs and i get response and get orders. But now I applied more than 200 jobs not getting response and not even jobs are awarded. 

 

Seems like since connects are paid, jobs and gigs are fake.

Why would you say job posts are fake?

 

Which job post did you see that was fake?

Clearly he means "job posts" - **Edited for Community Guidelines**

He explained what he meant well enough to understand it, surely?

Clearly he means "job posts" - either you are being incredibly dense, or are trying to mock the OPs poor English.

Still works, though:

'Why would you say "job posts" are fake?'

OP provided such a plethora of information, makes me thing that he is fake.

Petra:

I'm not mocking anybody or being dense.

 

If the original poster believes that Upwork is plagued by fake job posts, this could indeed be a problem.

 

I have not seen a proliferation of fake job posts.

 

If he has information about this, I would like him to tell us more.

 

But also: I have seen posts suggesting that Upwork itself is posting fake jobs. I don't believe this is the case. Not at all.

 

I'm wondering if the original poster believes that Upwork itself posts fake jobs so that it can make money from connects.

 

The original poster is offering his services as a New York City-based graphic designer, with a job success score of 68%. I am sorry if he is having a difficult time getting jobs, but I would like to know if it is because the jobs he is sending proposals to are indeed fake jobs (or "fake job posts"), or if his problems are due to other reasons. Such as clients choosing other freelancers.

Petra and Preston are both extremely valuable members of this community. They are different, each with their own ways and their own personality, but I know that every time they give an opinion, or they answer a question, somebody will learn something. Me included.

 

When they publicly argue on the forums is the only time when they bring no value to anyone.

Okay, but they let's do that the right way. Let's build a dome...

As long as I don't get paid, my duty to "bring value" 100% of the time is exactly 0

Furthermore, debunking BS "brings value" to "someone" (if nobody else it brings value to me.)

I would also like to add to Rene's observation that personal attacks and being disrespectful toward other members is against the Community Guidelines

 

We ask members of this Community to remain professional even if they disagree with each other. Then, there is no need to build a dome.

 

Thank you.
