A reasonable answer, for a reasonable question.

That's all most people want. And it would go down much better.

My JSS just went down 7% because I had one $25 client leave no feedback and give me a 3-star rating (she paid me $25 for $150 worth of work because she said it wasn't quite what she was looking for, and ended the contract).


Seriously, guys? From 80% (already low, in my opinion) to 73% because of a $25 client that was mildly unsatisfied...

The bottom line is.

UpWork doesn't care about you, they figured out the best way to calculate what we are worth and us freelancers have no place questioning their almighty calculations.

They are only interested in helping the top 2% achieve success. Essentially they have become a recruiting platform for freelancers and are no longer the Freelance platform we loved and adored.

I have gone from a top rated to 97% for the craziest reasons and that is after two 5 star reviews and a dream review by two clients.

Anyway I know this falls on deaf ears, so...
