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 curiousSmiley Wink

It appears to be a bell or a whistle they chose to imitate from Slack, rather than to emulate its functionality.

I feel the same way. Smiley Happy 

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! Smiley Happy

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.

Just something to bear in mind.

I monitor both systems. Twice so far, I have sent messages using the old system which did not register in the new system. Meaning the client did not receive it.

I had to send it from the new system on both occasions. Also some attachments sent from the new system, are never shown in the old system.

So some major things to be aware of.
