Re: Profile set to private

I was inactive for more than a year. I didn't have enough skills and I had invested my time in learning. 
Now. I am not getting a single reply from clients. When logged in from a PC, I realized, my profile is invisible. 
What options do I have? Can I delete and start as fresh? Since so much has changed from the time I started. I prefer starting as fresh since I would better be able to build my profile. Please guide. Thanks!

You can make a request to make your profile public again. But it's not really important at this stage, as most of the invitations you will receive will be coming from scammers.

 

On the other hand, never open another account since it's strictly prohibited.

Thanks! 
I want to get projects now. I have never earned anything from upwork. A public profile is important for me. I have a good experience now, and I have sent so many proposals but I didn't get a single reply. When I tried to get help, I was redirected to the community forum. Not sure how to send a request? Also, I really need to get work now. So, I think a public profile is a must. 
Thanks for the quick reply.

Hi Faizan,

 

Regrading contacting Customer Support, if you have a general question feel free to post it here and we'll gladly advise you on it or assist you with a possible concern you might have.

 

I'd strongly advise you to review the proposal writing tips and other valuable information shared in the freelancer resources.

Hi Faizan,

 

I've updated your profile visibility back to public, please refer to my previous post above for details regarding the initiative under which your profile visibility was set to private, the result of which your profile wasn't available in search results, and note that you can continue to use your existing account but won't be allowed to create a duplicate one.

Thank you for making my profile public. What will happen to the proposals I had sent while my profile was public?  And did they ever see the proposals in the first place?

Hi Faizan,

 

Your proposals are not affected in case your profile is set to private, this only affects how your profiles appears in search results.

Hi Sufyan,

I have reset your profile visibility back to public and can confirm that you will now be visible in the search results.
