Is this platform getting worse, or am I just unlucky?

Honestly, the only good thing that's come out of Brexit is the drop in value for the pound. While that's bad if you're looking to visit the states, it means I get more money when being paid by my clients, which are almost exclusivly American and pay in USD.

 

USD to GBP has shot up since around the same time in 2015, according to EX.com. I find they're very accurate, at in relation to my own bank's currency conversion rates.

Thanks Daniel. Yes, that's pretty much my own view of Brexit. 

 

I'll have a look at EX.com's rates and see how they compare. Most of my clients outside Upwork pay in GBP or Euros, so I need to look at exchange rates for different payment methods.

Yet more subjective views on Brexit when it has no real impact on Upwork other than providing UK-based freelancers with a big pay rise. I would write more, except it's bound to be deleted. 

This forum gets more like the Guardian every day.

Not rising to this Ramon. 

 

I'll turn off notifications now, since I have the information I need. Thanks again.

And more passive-agressive every day.

A bit of an achievement considering it's the first time Elaine has posted here.
