Top Rated Badge

I want to ask how far I am from the top-rated badge. I have a few long term clients and also I have earned nice money in the last few months. Now one of my client gave me very bad feedback without any of my work reason. I want to remove that feedback but need a top-rated badge. So that is why I am asking when I will get that.

First you need to get above 90% with your JSS. 

 

Then you need 13 out of 16 eligible weeks (Go to your My Stats Page to see how many you have). Eligible weeks are weeks during which your JSS was over 90%

 

Expect your JSS to go down steeply today, because 2 out of the last 3 contracts went really badly and they both ended since the last update...

You are a very long way from it.

If your last client was a cocaine dealer (!) who was asking you to engage in illegal activiites, you should report it to Upwork. With any luck, they'll suspend the account and then the feedback won't count (I think that's how it works, anyway).
