As the title says, this is very misleading to any potential client who visits my profile. Not even metioning the fact that my 75% rating is due to a 2.5/5 score from a client who attempted to take my work without paying. Whats up with upworks scoring system?
The blue bar is a representation of your score. The reason it may appear shorter is that the bar is centered on the average score of the market. We are displaying a scale from 50-100% JSS. Anything less than 50% JSS will not display the visual.
Sorry i dont understand. The average score of the market? what does that mean exactly? Is the blue bar a representation of my personal score with my clients or the average score of everyone in the market?
It's your score as represented on the 50-100 scale Valeria mentioned. Only the top half of the range shows, so if you are at 75%, you fall right in the middle of the range displayed.

It shows how you compare to the average of all other freelancers with a JSS. To be honest, a JSS of 75% is appalling whichever way a blue bar represents it, and clients who don't pay attention to the number won't pay attention to the blue line either.
