I think they handled it well and transparent. I'm actually really supportive of this move.
They answered a lot of questions like if this is a ploy to make money. Which it's not.
I would have gone in the same direction. Be grateful connects aren't $1 dollar still Smiley Happy

Really? Remember when connects were free, though? They were only a dollar once you went over 60. If you need more than 60, that's the kind of problem they are saying they want to address.

I was convinced this was a positive step for both clients and contractors. But honestly, I wish the apologists would stop being so confrontational.

I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you don't know what is generally meant by an apologist

Please god stop calling it a "feature". I know every PR and Marketing book tells you to do this, but it's insulting. Call it a new policy which is true to what this is (while benign in tone) without being cringey.

Well, for them it's a "feature" which means more money in their pockets, even thought that's not what "their intent" was...we'll, at least not publically admiting to it.  :-)

Thank you for attending the Town Hall on the upcoming changes to Connects. The Q&A session was hosted by Drew McCrary, who leads Upwork’s Training & Education team and Jessica Tiwari, our VP of Product.

 

For those of you who were unable to attend, the recording is available here.

 

We were happy to see such great participation from our community of freelancers and clients. We regret that we weren’t able to address each one of you individually during the hour, but hope we touched on the biggest concerns and questions.

We will, of course, also continue to read your comments here and collect that feedback.

Thanks again!
