"You have no idea how hard it's been with jobs and messages for the last 2 1/2 half months."
I've been actively looking for work here for the last two months. I've made a whole $266.67, minus fees, minus withdrawal tax. I know how hard it is, and I feel your pain.
I have the same problem. I am a client and am unable to view any contractor profiles due to this redirect loop bug. The subpar support agent on live chat told me it's because I was trying to view contractors who hadn't applied to my job. The mobile site it also broken. There have been far too many bugs since the switch to Upwork
