Return connects

We all know that the client who posts a job hires a freelancer during the first hours, maximum up to 3 days, however Upwork keeps the job active for a long time, including it even in the Recommended section, knowing that this job is dead and encouraging a waste of connects. If the job has no activity and no one has been hired, why isn't it canceled and the connects return? I have proposals for more than a month even without canceling which undermines the transparency of the platform's operation. Upwork should assign a more realistic (much less than 30 days) and proactive cancellation time and mechanism

Couldn't you just look at the date the gig was posted and not apply to those that are more than a few hours old?

This is news to me. I didn't know we know these things. I guess you don't know what you don't know until you know.

I have been hired a month later after submitting a proposal. Also after several weeks. 

 

It happens.
