While I'm especially glad that I didn't notice logging into my account and seeing someone else's picture/profile... I did get this error (see attached) while trying to view my profile.
I used to really love oDesk (now Upwork). In fact, it used to be my favorite platform to work on (truth be told, it was the only platform I've ever worked on other than 2 contracts on Elance). But these bugs, glitches, and connectivity issues are simply getting out of hand! It is incredibly frustrating now trying to work on this platform - or for that matter, just trying to log in to submit proposals!
I'm seriously considering looking for another freelance platform. The bad thing is, now I just simply don't know of any other platforms except one and I'm not too impressed with the job-quality there. Ugh. Please Upwork, fix the site soon so we can get back to work without the daily frustration! lol.
This is completely unacceptable! This website is such a joke...I can't even believe it. It doesn't load ever, I apparently have zero connects, I can't access my messages and now I am someone named Janice. Wow...I am seriously speechless.
I had the same mystery profile, then mine showed back up with zero conntects. I had 56 before they decided to break the site today.
So incredibly unprofessional...I do not expect anything to ever change though, they have made it quite clear they do not gives a rats behind what we think, how we are affected or anything else.

LOL Ya know, in all the games I've played over the years, the general "joke" among gamers was always that the devs always broke something right before (or while) they were fixing something else - or preparing for an update. So... you could be right! LOL
"I think Upwork is introducing some new features."
No, I think they had a major site failure.
This has to be the worst by a long way, though.
