Thanks for your suggestion, Ivan. At the moment this messages is shown on job postings that were created using a mobile device to inform users who may view it and may find that information helpful. 

 

We'll share your feedback with the team.

Agree, Ivan. This message sends a message to clients that it is okay to post a job with insufficient information if they're using a mobile device, which is just stupid. A freelancer is no more able to make an intelligent bid on a job without details because that job was posted from a mobile device.

 

Upwork is undoubtely trying to make it easy for clients to post a job, but since most professional freelancers don't bid on jobs with insufficient details, signalling to clients that it's fine to write an inadequate job posting just sets the client up for a bad experience and inreases the likelihood that he or she will abandon the platform without hiring anyone.

 It also allows clients to blame their poor spelling skills on their phones...
