I meant no discrimination towards Elance people! I deserve the best answer award! I put a lot of thought into that answer!

If you're throwing your hat in the ring, I will put you into consideration Rahul. Smiley Wink 

Unfortunately, Valeria cannot be considered as a presenter because she is part of the establishment. It's in the rules, I can't change that. Woman Wink

 

As for Upwork possibly providing this option for clients... I'm against that because how will we know what other freelancers experienced with them? If there is any good that can come of this possible feature, I'd love to know but as it stands, it's a no for me.

Well, while you guys were sitting at your oDesks, oblivious to the beauty of the sadly soon to be scrapped sister site, we on E were lancing the bubble of untapped venture capital!  Smiley Tongue Whatever strange practices this may seem to infer to you, the 'privatisation' of feedback was not one of them. (At least I don't think so.) Smiley Wink

 

Spoiler
 

 

Another site has a policy of letting you pay to have feedback removed, but I think that feedback needs to be seen to be worth having at all.

Yeah, Valeria is a part of the establishment, she can approve that making feedback private is just a feature for clients (not only for 'Elance'-clients). After this approval I will get the best answer award. (Sorry Amy, nothing personal Smiley Tongue )

 

 

And if that person can't be Valeria, then that should be Preston. I always liked his opinion also.

OUCH. 

you're really pulling out all the stops Rahul... this is getting tough. I just hope no one else becomes a contestant or I might have to hire someone to help sort this all out!!! 

 

Preston is wonderful but he's MUCH too popular around here with (as I see on the side at this time) 9 top solutions. I think it's better to give the lesser known freelancers an opportunity to shine don't you?

Thank you Alexandra,

Here I found a win, Elance-clients are not so privileged (at least not for having feedbacks-private). 

 

So, let me submit one more answer (which can win award Smiley Very Happy )

 

It is happening because either upwork is providing a feature to hide feedbacks or there is one more issue for upwork team. Smiley Happy

I got it. Smiley Tongue

Although I told that it's a feature or a bug, but I think the award will be given to all other than Rahul. Smiley Sad

 

Anyways, thank you Darrin.

And I knew Valeria can be most deserving candidate for best answer award.

 

Valeria, I didn't see any private feedback, but yes, it happened that I gave feedback, but it shows no feedback given and now it's an old case. I don't want to share the link of that, because 

1) I don't want any disturbance for my client, she is a busy client.

2) I think there are some more other issues, which should get priorities; please don't mind it.

 

If anyone else want to get it solved, then please share your view, I am not against it.

That's really the best answer:

 

Sometimes Upwork is operating as designed.

Sometimes Upwork is broken.

Sometimes it is impossible to distinguish between the two.
