Isabelle, Hawaii is still part of US, but my map disappeared sometime ago...

JK,

 

That's probably because your profile is not public.

In that case, we'll never know because I'm not making it public, but this must be a new, unannounced feature because when it was there, my profile wasn't public either. Cat Frustrated

Just like whatever you call your higher power, Upwork works in mysterious ways. Since a mod hasn't seen fit to address our questions, I guess you're right ... we'll never know.

Strange. Looking at your profile from my client account I see no map. Maybe because I am a pesky foreigner?


So strange. I can't see them either, so I suppose it's one more thing to shut out us non-US freelancers. Plus, on Mary's and Virginia's profiles, I'm seeing empty spaces under under "Associated With" and "Groups" (lower right-hand side of profiles):

That's because not all of us are associated with anyone or part of a group.

I thought as much, but then why don't they remove those sections for freelancers who are not associated with something? The blank spaces look very odd and unprofessional on the profile. On Petra's profile, as well, I saw that one of the sections (Associated With) is blank. I can't see any such (empty) sections on my profile, but I wonder if others can.

 

I hadn't seen these on profiles before. Can a mod please clarify whether they're new or not, and if they have to be blank like that for freelancers who are not associated with groups/agencies?

Well ... now that you mention it, I don't know if it was always like that or not. Maybe the "talent specialists" immediately throw bids away by those of us who don't "belong". Considering the lack of response to our questions about the maps, I wouldn't hold my breath for an answer to this.

Hi everyone, 

I'll go ahead and check with the team about the "Associated with/Groups" section, and the maps that seem to be missing when a user is logged in a location outside of the U.S.

That's not the only issue ... as has been mentioned in this thread, the map on my profile was gone for awhile, which made me happy, and now it's back. Why? Please just get rid of the maps altogether - there is absolutely no need for, especially with the addition of the blue checkmark. For a change, do something nice for your freelancers, Upwork.
