Yesterday I got my rising talent badge and 30 bonus connects. Now the badge is gone but the connects are still there. Can anyone from Upwork Community help me with this issue ?
No worries, a JSS will arrive soon! Expect a few hours to days of labor, though....
The rising talent badge is given by Upwork to newcomers who have potential to success, it's to encourage you. When they remove the badge it means you have enough momentum to fly with your own wings. It's not a punishment, it's a good sign. It will be replaced by the JSS soon.
The only cases I can think where a rising talent badge is removed because of something else are if you modified your profile leaving it not at 100% completeness or if you have been inactive.
Anyway I just watched your profile and you still have it. So what are you talking about?
