Remove Test canned Question

I am not sure I have ever asked for UW to change something but...

 

Why is there still a canned question for clients about what Upwork tests you have taken that are relevant to this project if Upwork tests no longer exist?

 

I just proposed a project that had that question so I know it is still available, can someone please get rid of it?

It will take them 18 months to do this.
Another bug, the Dispute bug, where the dispute flag continues to show many, many months after dispute was resolved, has been waiting in line for a long time.

You can expect that after they fix that one they'll now come to your own Smiley Wink

They should get rid of all those questions, most of them are silly, to say it softly.

 

Anyway, I guess there are more important things they should focus on. i.e. to stop that non-sense "If you want to update your portfolio first create a specialized profile."

Well I would hope this is just data somewhere, it's not a bug, it was once a relevant question (I guess).

 

Now removing all the canned questions would be nice because they are tedious and I am not sure they help anyone.

Hi All,

 

We're aware of this issue and planning to remove those questions shortly. 

 

Thank you.

Does it really take that much time for the developers to remove these questions now these skill tests have been removed? That is hard to believe. 

 

How should we answer these questions? That skill tests are now not available and Upwork does not have the time to remove these questions?

If you've taken the relevant test say yes and link to the screenshot of the test results you took before they were all killed off.

 

The question asks if you took it. If you did, say yes. If you didn't, you didn't.

The question is not "Did you take the test and is it still showing on your profile?"

That's way better than my answer.  I didn't take any of the tests, the tests are dumb Smiley Tongue

Lol @ y'all.
The question is, "Have you taken", not, "Did you take"?
There's a difference between these two kinds of past tense.

If only the devs could do their jobs, we wouldn't be having this kind of discussion Smiley Wink

And how on Mars can I take a screenshot of a test result that's been wiped out?
