Yesterday I decided to apply for a job and I opened the dialog for creating a proposal - the text fields had no borders.
I reported the bug (it's a bug, is not it - does it make sense to write text in the void?) and the answer was "this is by design".
99% of forms on the web either have bordered text fields or at least a bottom border (if they follow Google Material design principles) - and here we suddenly have no borders at all. Because someone (I have no clue whether this decision comes from a manager or from a designer) decided that text fields will be better without borders.
Then I decided to make a tiny update to my overview. I opened my profile and the characters counter below the text field suddenly shows a negative number. How is this possible? This overview has already been created 4 months ago - and back then Upwork happily accepted it.
I reported the bug and the reply was "This field has a limit of 5000 symbols". I counted the symbols in two different text editors and the number is 4170 symbols. Obviously there is something wrong here as 5000 minus 4170 is certainly not -1119 ...
It is not the job post itself but some special characters in my bid because the client wanted to see experience so I included Dart command examples with paths which have special chars.
I used an online special char removing tool then the bid worked.
It was crashing the Js somehow.
On the ARCHIVED tab in MY PROPOSALS the section ARCHIVED INTERVIEWS is sorting in the wrong direction - it shows the oldest interviews first, the newest last. But the right sorting is the opposite:

As of today I am no longer able to easily/quickly recall my saved job searches. Until yesterday, when you click inside the searchbox - it used to show a drop-down list with my saved searches, so I could just choose one of them with a single click.
Now I have to click on the three dots, choose "Edit saved searches" from the popup menu, then in the new modal dialog click on the desired saved search in order to actually invoke it and see the corresponding list of jobs.
Why do you remove existing functionality and break the UX ?
Please restore the old behavior of the searchbox on the FindWork page - the same way it still works when you edit a saved search:
