Shall I leave Upwork?

Title says my first question...

 

I currently have a few jobs completed on Upwork with only 2 extreme bad reviews.

Sets my JSS to 75%... 

Now as mentioned before, is it worth to write tons more proposals in hope to get more jobs or is this the end for me?

 

Shall I write something back to the latest feedback? 

 

This was the job description:

"I have no way to make a video for the track "I Feel Tonight". That's why my request. It can be experimental and crazy - I'm open to everything."

Now what he says:

Deadline not met          Dunno how he came up with this... Completed it all in time

False promises             --?

His work has nothing to do with his profile description  I'm a video animator and created a video for him?

He has 1000 excuses for everything         If you can tell me a single one I wrote?

 

Besides all of this, I am also working on my own site... 

Shall I put more effort in that than on Upwork?

 

Thanks!

All of your feedback prior to these last two was good--were you top rated before this happened? If so, use your perk to remove the most recent rating.

Matthijs, so this is the story your friend Alex S***p was talking about yesterday?

 

I don't think you were top-rated beforehand - and this is the third poor feedback. Did this happen before or after the last JSS Update (last Sunday?)

 Was your JSS 75% before Sunday? (I am trying to work out if the 75% is including it or whether it will drop further...)

 

I also suspect it might not matter that much either way shortly...

It will drop lower. Was 75% for like 2 months now.

 Well, to answer your question "Shall I leave Upwork?" - the answer is "Yes, at least until you are 18, as you're not actually allowed to work here yet anyway...!"

What? Where did you got it from that I am not 18? I can send you a picture from my ID to prove...

Are the portfolio samples actually yours? If you really work with Bank of America and Fiverr you must have a lot of work outside of Upwork?
