As for the situation concerning your job applications, I would suggest you keep communicating with oDesk Customer Support through the ticket.
Thank you for your patience!
I still got this problem. I think Odesk should change the rule, I have 60 recent jobs but have 1 or 2 dispute with client. it was very ordinary. Why they don't show my name on the list applicant? It make me crazy!!

The way your applications are displayed to clients can be affected by several factors, for example a history of policy violations, bad client experience and disputes. Unfortunately, we cannot share any details about your account here in the Community.
I have been working in oDesk for hree years and it pains me that I am experiencing this kind of situation.
In the past two months, I have been applying for jobs that are ONLY in line with my expertise (which is writing and translation). However, I have noticed that I haven't been receiving response to my application. So late December, I have unintentionally checked the application list and have noticed that I wasn't included on the list even though I have applied hours ago. I ignored it and tried to apply to some other jobs only to find out the same situation. I have contacted oDesk support and here's what they to me;
"To ensure your job applications are highly ranked, apply to jobs where your skills and past work experience are a great fit and build a great relationship with your client every time. This means being truthful on your profile about what skills you have, ensuring before you accept a job offer that you can meet the client’s expectations, delivering on time, and communicating with your client throughout the project and especially if you run into problems. By providing this type of quality experience and satisfying clients, your applications will once again be ranked highly for clients."
I have actually received good feedback in the past weeks, I haven't had any disputes, I updated my profile, I applied only to jobs that are related to my skills, i always deliver in advance and been commended for such and the quality of my work. That is why I don't understand why I am experiencing this situation. But here's the thing, I actually don't remeber anything that I did wrong. I did not disappoint any of my clients nor did I receive any bad feedback or disputes in the past months, so why I do I have to experience this situation. It is so frustrating. I have promoted oDesk to my friends, I have dedicated my three years working in this site with utmost professionalism and then I would receive this king of mishap without any valid reason at all.
Please help me. Please raise this to the concerned department. Thank you.
