No, I am NOT in the US & marked 'invisible'

While logged into my freelancer account, I searched for my name 'Ela K' to check something. I am NOT using a VPN and I'm not hiding my IP. Then this happens:

 

1) I see the below image. ???  I select to "search anywhere".

2) I find my profile on page 2 looking like this (marked as online):

Despite having selected invisible from day 1. Oh, and the notification issue is still not resolved (orange dot visible at all times).

3) And I can now choose to narrow my search to US-only freelancers (again, logged in as a freelancer).

BTW: 9 out of 10 people on page 1 are located in the US and only one (the very first FL) mentions Ela on their profile).

 

4) When I search for my full name, only my profile comes up.

 

5) The US-only filter didn't disappear after logging out & in again. I opened an incognito window and the filter was there. I cleared cache & cookies, then logged in again: the US-only filter is still there.

 

 

What in the world is Upwork meddling with now?

Hi Ela,

Thanks for the detail report, it may be a glitch. I just escalated this to our technical support and the team that is in charge for this feature.

I can confirm that nothing is scheduled for this weekend, when we get additional information we will let you know.

If I search for Mary W, I don't even show up at all, with or without filters...

That suits a serial killer just fine, doesn’t it, Mary? Smiley Happy

You've set your profile to unavailable until 07/05 - that's why.
