I agree, at Elance the fee was %8,75, here is 10%, at Elance the job was finished, the client released the funds and in a few hours you could send it to paypal or bank account, i received a payment yesterday and i only will be able to withdraw september 6? That´s a joke,an entire WEEK?I feel sorry for Elance became such this.
Well as if it wasn't enough that the platform works poorly, now it won't even get proposals sent.

Why do they want to rush a merge to a platform that is a nest of never ending problems?
I'm really angry at this. Like more connects will get me the jobs I've tried to get. Its not like I've wasted hours composing proposals just to see them going to who knows where.
Was I the only one getting this?
"Was I the only one getting this?"
No, check around the forums. Both freelancers AND clients are having issues.
They already had clients and freelancers from odesk. What I can't figure out is why didn't they iron out all of these kinks with the new platform BEFORE even mentioning over on Elance and trying to merge? This is just such an unprofessional way to roll out a new platform. :-(
It’s beyond a JOKE now, with these log-in errors, profile mix-ups and probable security breaches. Earning here seems a potentially serious risk now, and worse still to be ‘paying for work’ on a set-up with such alarming holes.
I'm actually very concerned for the security side of the platform. If the front-end is like this, I can only imagine (and have night-terrors doing so), what happens on the backend.
Sadly, its a step back from what every freelancing platform should be these days: user friendly and easy to work with.
