Upwork sent me an email a little bit ago. Today I received a request from someone to edit their essay. They wanted it done today. I waited until 8 p.m. He said he was still working on it. I said, "Goodnight, I'll be here tomorrow."
About thirty minutes later, Upwork sent me an email asking for a one question survey in exchange for 40 free connects. They congratulated me for talking to this guy . . . then they asked if I would recommend him to other freelancers.
What is that about? I've never seen that before.
