It's just funny how I thought posting this will help me at all.

Really.

It's also funny how you marked your whining as the solution to your own whining Smiley Wink How 'bout that for some comic relief?

Venting might help. And knowing that we are all in the same boat...

This isn't FB. And there are 20 other threads of venting when the entire platform has yet to be moved over to the new plan.

It's months away from bugs being worked out.

They are not going to change it. So, the best approach is wait it out and make adjustments as needed.

You're free to post anything you like, but people are also free to disagree with you. As somebody already pointed out, clients already have the option to make their projects invite-only. If they haven't done so, it's because they want to get other bids.

 

It's not impossible to bid on projects and win them even if you're not invited - I've done it lots of times. I'm sorry that you're frustrated, but the information on how many people have been invited and how many freelancers are being interviewed is at the bottom of each project, so if you don't feel that you've got a good chance, you don't need to waste your connects.

Well, I'm not quite sure what advice exactly did you expect to get here?

One thing I can recommend, though, is to NOT apply to jobs where already 20 to 50 people placed their bids. It makes no sense. 

Also, truth to be told, not all jobs have a lot of invites.

There are clients that will spam 20-50 invites. Keep away from those too.

 




I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Also, you can't really fight the Upwork Community Wolf Pack. 

Playing Tetris makes more sense and will lead to less frustration.

My god, man. Never heard of Tetris? Do yourself a favor and find the 90's sensation game that you could spend hours wasting your time after your parents told you to go to bed and couldn't play Duck Hunt anymore.

You are free to use Google or online dictionaries to discover the meaning of 'undefinied' words.

All the best luck.

Who knows, maybe you discover the meaning of some additional undefined words along the way, such as cynicism.
