Ridiculous notice from UpWork

Gary don't frett.  You are new, but you do have some nice book covers in your portfolio.  Invisibility does not hurt you - actually it may help you.  It could serve as a filter from scammers.  Potential buyers can still see your profile when you submit the proposals so if they come to you they like your work.  Scammers usually search for 'fresh' faces.  Freshies have not learned all the tips and tricks to protect themselves.  They are easy prey.

 

As I said, you do have strong designs and as you gain traction this will go away.

My profile has been locked as private but I've been working on a project for several days and am constantly bidding on jobs!!!!!! This has happened before and it's so freakin' frustrating. UpWork really needs to figure out a better system.

@ Virginia-

 

Adding my 100+ kudos to Nichola's.

 

That U. email is undoubtedly the most poorly piece to ever grace this platform.

WOW!  If true, that's really saying something! I believe that the Upwork "needs a serious re-write" competition is a hard-fought rivalry, indeed! Smiley Wink

Just like archived proposals that says withdrawn by you when you didn't actually withdrew anything.

The point is ... Upwork should use one of the many good writers here to rewrite the notice they send out. I really don't care when I get sent to detention, I just wish the notice wasn't so bleeping stupidly-written.


 Upwork should use one of the many good writers here to rewrite all of the notices they send out as well as most of the website.
