Is there a way to request that the "My Stats" page be updated? I beleive that as of my most recent job I meet the qualifications for Top Rated. That job is reflected on my profile, but on My Stats the last update was September 30 and it says it updates every two weeks. Is there a reason this updates so inrequently and is there a way to get it updated now? I'm anxious to start applying to jobs as a top rated freelancer!
No, there is no way to get it updated sooner. The update timing is set in stone.
As to why, well if you look here it says:
"The Upwork system takes snapshots of your six-, 12- and 24-month history in the marketplace and calculates a score for each. The best score out of these moving time windows is displayed on your profile and updated about every two weeks."
I would assume that doing this update more than once every two weeks would adversely effect both the servers, and the overall way they have designed the JSS system.
