Re: Upwork won't set my profile to 100% complete

I've left my profile at 80% complete for the longest time because Upwork practically encourages everyone to cheat at their tests, and I see no other way to fill out that last 20%.  So, just for fun today, I decided to "Take a Skill Test (+10%)" twice, just to see if the site begins to look any different.

 

I took, and completed, the two most popular English language tests, but it still has my profile marked as only 80% complete.  I set the tests to proudly show in my profile, but it is still stuck at 80% complete.  After following all the published rules, I am at a loss.  Oh dearest Upwork, what must I do to appease you?  What will truly make me 100% acceptable?

No portfolio. No education. No previous work experience. No skills set. Fix this and you should be ok to hit 100%

What are you talking about, Jean?  I clearly have 3 "items" in my portfolio (two of them being links to listings of multiple projects).  I list my work experience for the last 17 years.  I have set all the skills Upwork allows, and have a ton more than that.  Perhaps Upwork is censoring my profile in additional ways?  A screen shot of what you see might be very telling.  Thanks.

I have indeed done that, Corinne.  Upwork just doesn't show it in anybody's profile.  I'm still just looking to find out why I'm not getting the last 20% credit for the two tests I took, or anything else I might be able to do that Upwork will consider as a final step towards completion.

Thanks for your kind words, Khadezatul, but I am not worried about failing the tests I take.  I am only wondering why Upwork did not give me the +10% to my profile completeness that it said it would give me after I simply take each test.

Only see what you need to do under the profile complete percentage. Follow them and your profile will be 100% complete soon.

That is clearly not the case, Abdul, or I wouldn't be here wondering why I'm not getting my +10% for each test I've taken, and Upwork lists no other way for me to increase my profile completeness.
