Starting after suspension

Hello! My friend's profile is suspended because of sending too many proposals. When he tried to create a new account and start again, Upwork suspended him again. So, is there a possibility to start again after being suspended?
ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Aleksa, I understood that.

It was just a first aid not to create new profiles in order not to make things even more difficult.

You are not allowed to have more than one profile, suspended, or not.

So please tell him not to create more profiles.

How to continue after suspension in general - someone else probably knows better.

Thank you Anneli, but I'd like to know how to continue working...

 If "your friend" was permanently suspended and then suspended again that's the end of the road.

That is discrimination. What if he was new to the Upwork and just wanted to get the job quickly? That's not fer, there should be dose of tolerantion and a chance to make changes. 

That is far from discrimination.

It is not fair to make decisions such as permanently suspending someone on the grounds that they are not familiar with the way the community functions, just because it is a member of it almost recently. Everyone deserves a chance to change and try again. If not, why would there be a notion of tolerance and understanding?

Let's put it bluntly:

 

Every day 10.000 freelancers want to join Upwork.

98% are rejected.

 

As is, there are already way too many freelancers on the site.

Your friend was given a chance, didn't succeed, and was removed.

No shop keeps products on their shelves that it can not sell.

 

Then your friend broke the terms of Service and created another account.

 

It's "game over"

 

I do not want to continue the conversation. It looks like my views and views of the community are different. Thanks.
