Can we get an official response here? Please tell me that this is a terrible bug and not a "revamp" of our profiles!

Isabelle, I don't want to mistreat a dead horse, but, just once, wouldn't it be nice if there was a pre-annoucement before making a change to the site, along the lines of,

 

We will be doing this & that tomorrow for such & such reasons. We apologize in advance for any disruption this may cause.

I guess Upwork thought that it was not worth taking the time to let us know. But Upwork has just announced a "Job Application Language Change".

No comments.

Hi All,

 

I would like to confirm that the updates to the freelancer profile were introduced to enable freelancers to better highlight their skills and expertise. The changes include cutting edge design tools to edit different sections.

 

If you need to edit your profile, you can hover your mouse over a section of your profile and then click on the pencil icon to edit it. Once done editing, click Save. When you do not hover your mouse over any section, you see your profile as others see it.

Other than that there was no change in functionality.

 I apologize but you're totally wrong, Valeria. I am now uncapable of viewing my profile as others see it (even if I choose the 'View my profile as others see it' under Profile Settings). My profile now shows all the tests I took on Upwork. In order to know how others see my page, I had to spend nearly 1 hour live chatting this afternoon. I had to change browser, select my tests again and ask your agent to show me how others view my page. Is this 'cutting edge' tools?

Valeria, I'm sorry - but this is a bug. I have the same problems as Olga and my job history order is completely messed up.

Could you please elaborate on the cutting-edge bit because I am unable to find it. I see a jumbled portfolio, a very difficult to read profile, and edit boxes that use different font sizes.

 

I am not sure what this obsession with decreasing font sizes for no apparent reason is all about, but your dev team's font anorexia should be treated because if we continue like this, we'll be at font size 2 by September.

If I was cynical I'd think that they had realised someone had made a massive boo-boo in the source code for the page, and are now running round like headless chickens trying to fix it.

 

But no, of course not - cutting edge it is. Right.

 Well, if there were chickens coming home to roost, then cutting edge might be just the ticket.
