My cover letters are being auto hidden

Hi, A couple of my clients posted private jobs recently. They invited me for the job. I accepted the job and notified them on Skype that I have done the same. My clients were first unable to find my name on the "Applicant list". Later when they checked "Auto hidden" candidates, my name was in there. I am now worried this must be happening with my normal cover letters as well when I apply on a public job. Can someone help me understand what is going on? and what do I need to do? Thanks

Please put in a support ticket with the specifics. They said they corrected this but apparently they have not. Invited freelancers should not be auto hidden. It is a horrible new 'feature' that neither client nor freelancer likes yet they refuse to remove it. The only thing we can do is complain and give facts via support tickets.

Hahaha..... Odesk is kicking you out bro... I have about 900 hours and good feedback. But I am unable to get a single interview or invitation since 3 or 4 months. I am switched to other site and come here just to keep in touch with my in progress contracts. I discussed it with Odesk help and they say that they cant do anything.... SO.... After 4 devoted years to Odesk....My profile is nothing.. Odesk serves employers..

I have been working in oDesk since January 2011. I have good feedbacks and I have about 1,500 hours in oDesk. It's been a month from now, I haven't been invited for any interviews. I keep on applying to any job posts but no interviews that it should not be this way lately. I don't know what to do now.

It seems they are filtering agency contractors in the searches and their bids

Hello, I just wanted to ask if you're still not getting invitations to interview? I'm going through the very same thing - over 2,000 hours on oDesk and now suddenly, absolutely nothing. I've been applying left and right for a week, but not a single invite. Has this issue been raised? Is there some new policy now? Are oDesk veteran contractors being shown the door?
