I think this automatic profile locking is a really annoying feature. I only freelance part-time on here (due to being a full-time student and also having clients outside the platform who often keep me busy enough) so there are often gaps of some weeks or months when I don't actively look for/accept jobs. Regardless, it's annoying that the platform then chooses to make my profile completely hidden, preventing me from getting exceptionally interesting offers that I might accept despite not being actively on the lookout. It's just another small way in which this platform feels increasingly unfriendly towards freelancers.
Thanks for reaching out to us. I’ve reset your profile visibility back to the public. Just so that you are aware, freelancers with no earnings in 30 days will have their profile set to private (locked) automatically. 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.
Your profile visibility has been updated. Also, I have manually generated your profile which should now be reflecting the most recent information regarding your work history and feedbacks.
