As an alternative to clicking that green button, you could claim that you are going to file a class action lawsuit.

I really don't get this fuss. It's happened to me a few times over the years. It takes a few seconds to click on the request button, then within hours you're back. It doesn't stop you from applying at all. This is such a gross overreaction.

Hello ,

When i ogged in to my account thsi morning I did nto see a BIG GREEN BUTTON, I nly see that NOW after I hhave posted. When I logged in I just saw a pop up syig my profile has been set to private.

So I headed over to the forums and posted. Now ofcourse my account has been set to public again in double quick speed and big buttons start appearing everywhere. 

Had I not posted or protested, my account would still have been private and remained so.

Had you simply followed the instructions on the notification, you could have saved yourself the hassle. It is literally a matter of two mouseclicks.

Only if you had continued to fail to follow the simple instructions given on the notification.

Hi Kevin,

 

When your profile is set to private it is not shown in freelancer search results and will not be seen by clients unless you submit a proposal for their job. Your profile visibility has been reset back to "Public". you may want to check this help article to learn more.

You can have your profile set back to public by going to this page and clicking on the green button to request a reset.
