Upwork seems to have a peculiar idea of where Connecticut is:

Rockville.png

 

(OK, I confess. It's not Upwork's fault. I live in a busted milltown that was once a city, and is now a "village" within the "town" of Vernon—towns in Connecticut being something like mini-counties.

Once I conform my address to USPS usage, the map should autocorrect. Which I'd probably better do now, before anyone thinks I'm trying to pull anything. Meanwhile, couldn't resist the cheap laugh.)

edited to add: Sure enough, it's autokeyed off the relevant settings>profile field. The map corrected immediately when I conformed my address. Good thing I looked, because somehow my phone number had gotten mangled unbeknownst to me, and I was able to correct it.

This looks like a sort of window dressing for the "US only" program. Presumably it's a automatch to a mapping service. While it's all but certainly entirely disconnected from whatever verification Upwork does, it gives the appearance of a stamp of authenticity. Of course, that couldn't possibly be Upwork's motive: it's a "convenience" for clients and contractors.

re: "I'm really surprised that Upwork doesn't make all its freelancers wear uniforms."

 

Um.... You do realize that I would totally support that, right?

 As long as the uniform includes a tie?

 Of course, but only if it is not a green tie.

Ties, green or otherwise, would only be required for the gentlemen.

Connecticut, Maryland, DC, California...same thing. As long as it points to somewhere in the US and the servers don't crash, we good.

US profiles have now a small Google Map pointing to their city. It's funny but pretty useless since it's so small that, unless a major city is shown on the map, there is no much ways to tell where they are at.

 

Also I wonder why US people only, by the way.
