Hi Nariman,

 

Just to clarify the bonus connects that you will receive is 30 connects. Please allow up to 48 hours for your Rising Talent connects to be awarded on your profile. If you don't receive them after 48 hours let us know here, thank you.

Hi Varun, 

Before I proceed, could you please confirm when you received the Rising Talent badge? Usually, the connects are automatically credited within 24-hours of receiving the badge. If it has been more than 24-hours, please update this thread so that our team can assist you further.

Thanks Goran and Avery,

Just checked the bonus connects are in my account. Thanks once again. If its not too much trouble could you please let me why when some of the jobs that needed just 1 connect to submit a proposal on submitting 2 connects were take away. This happend twice. Please let me know if you needed more information to investigate this.

 

Thanks in advance,

Varun

Why is it again that rising talents get free connects?

 

Is this something a Top-Rated member recieves as well?

 

I'm not particularly fond of having to pay when users with far less experience on this platform are being boosted up for free.

Hi Jordon,

 

Freelancers who were Top Rated when we launched paid Connects in their category, received a one-time bonus of 60 connects.

That seems completely different than a bonus people recieve for making it to rising talent, something that wasn't even around before I first made Top-Rated status, but not a surprising non-answer.

Again, why do Rising Talent continue to recieve a bonus, yet Top-Rated do not?  Why are you giving free connects to less experienced accounts vs accounts that need a proven track record for their status?  Seems like it should be the other way around.

Are you not interested in incentivising your proven freelancers to stay here over bringing in new ones?
