Every time, I check my messages, I get to read these texts:
"Jamaica has 120 rivers."
"India is the only office with over 100,000 offices".
While it is good to learn these things, I want to know why do we have to learn this general knowledge stuff every time? I am just curious
I feel the same way.
I won't try to be funny but I will say that after a while I tend to not notice those repetitive fun facts. Hopefully you'll get to that point too!
If Upwork ever returns me to the new message system with these absurd factoids, I will close my account. What is really annoying is that they take up so much time. You HAVE to wait until they have rolled across your screen before you can go on to contact your client, send a message or attach a file.
They are juvenile, irritating, uneducational and totally unprofessional.
The old oDesk system is not very sophisticated, but it is much clearer and much faster.
