I'm sorry to learn you feel this way, Nathan. There are different ways on setting your profile to public again, one of which is contacting us directly so that we can set your profile visibility to public.
If an established freelancer doesn't earn money on Upwork for 30 days, their profile visibility will automatically change to private. This is checked daily, not once a month. If you aren't regularly earning on our platform, your profile may be set to private, even if you submit proposals and interview frequently.
If the profile is set to private again after 30-days, or sometime in the future, check out the options listed in the email notification or in the pop up on Find Work page to set it back to public.
You may read more about this initiative on this support article. Please know that I have already set your profile to public.
Avery - It looks like that support article doesn't work.
Well, thanks for setting my profile back to public, however, I don't see any incentive to continue putting the amount of fruitless effort I have into countless proposals on a platform that not only wants to take a percentage the payments I recieve, but also randomly sets my profile to private until I pay a premium fee. Frankly, this is not the type of environment I want to participate in.
I’ve reset your profile visibility back to public. Just so that you are aware, profiles of freelancers with a history of earnings on the platform will remain public unless they have not earned in more than 2 years. Profiles of new freelancers who haven’t earned on Upwork will be set to private after 90 days.To avoid this, you can resume earnings on a new contract or upgrade your membership to the Plus plan. You can check out more info about this here. Thank you.
