I just want upwork to not show the freelancers with lower JSS than preferred as “Not meeting your criteria”

 But... if a client sets that preference then freelancers who don't meet that preference ... don't meet that preference....

But Upwork shouldn't allow clients to choose not to work with OP. That's not fair. OP wants work, there should be no barriers to him getting what he wants.

Well I smell the sarcasm , but you don’t get the point , it’s not just about the job , I have repeat clients , I do get work , but how about someone who doesn’t ? Also I just wanted to highlight few points such as what clients think JSS is , actually It’s not . I know many fellow freelancers who are currently having these issues .

 Yes, so maybe we should have a system wheere clients no longer see anything, no feedback, no skills, no overview, no proposals, no profiles, no job history and just draw their freelancers lottery-style.

 

That'll create a nice even playing field, won't it?

 I did read your original post, and I did understand it, and I did work on Upwork long before JSS appeared. I am not trolling, I am trying to explain to you why your argumentation is flawed, using humour.

None of the responses you've received constitute trolling, and none manifest a failure to read or understand your initial post.

 

The point you made is a weak one, and it has been explained to you why it is weak.

 

That doesn't mean you shouldn't have raised the topic or shouldn't have expressed your opinion on it. It doesn't mean you're being disrespected.

 

You're not being trolled; you're being disagreed with.

Vishal, I had a look at your profile and I can see that you have issues with making clients perfectly happy. In the light of this, I can understand why you don't like it that the clients are allowed to filter out by JSS.

 

That being said, even if this selector wasn't available, your JSS (which is not bad at all: 89%) could still be a discriminating factor for some of them.

 

What you should do, if I may suggest, is to work towards performing even better and making ll your clients totally happy. Try to pinpoint what it is that you could do better and what it was that made clients giving you less than perfect feedback. If you manage to do this, and I'm sure you can, JSS won't be a problem anymore.
