Suggestion for Connects Reversal Policy on Archived Jobs - Raise Your Voice ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Dear Upwork Team,

As a dedicated freelancer, I utilize a significant number of Connects on a daily basis to bid on job opportunities ranging from 8 to 16 Connects each. Unfortunately, I have observed that the response rate from clients has dwindled significantly, with only around 1-2% of clients initiating communication nowadays.

What's more, a substantial number of clients who post jobs appear to neither engage with freelancers nor proceed to hire anyone for their projects. After a certain period, these jobs are archived, resulting in the loss of the Connects that were utilized to bid on them.

It is my belief that many clients may simply post jobs and then lose interest or forget about them, subsequently failing to cancel the job listings. This could be due to a variety of reasons, including forgetfulness or other commitments.

I suggest that when a job is archived without any freelancer being hired, the Connects used to bid on that job should be returned or reversed to the bidders. This adjustment would be fair to freelancers who have actively engaged with the platform and would help to mitigate the impact of unused Connects on our accounts.

I kindly request that you consider this proposal as a means to enhance the overall user experience on your platform and promote fairness for diligent freelancers like myself. Your support in this matter would be greatly appreciated, and I believe it would be a positive step forward for both clients and freelancers on your platform.

Thank you for your attention to this suggestion, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback on this matter.

Vishnu Gupta
