Inactivity and JSS

Hi. I'm planning to take a break from UW for a while, possibly several months. Will this inactivity hurt my JSS?

Hi Carlos, 


Your Job Success will be affected because of old activity aging out of the rolling windows, and there are not new contracts to calculate your Job Success Score from. Your score can change significantly without recent activity. You may read this help article for more information on why Job Success Scores change, and how you can improve them once you come back again on Upwork.

I was inactive for about two months and lost my Top Rated status. I'm at 89%, but am not going to jump through hoops (e.g., take low-paying jobs to be active) to get it back.
