Hi everyone,

Now I have 16 of 16 top rated eligible weeks as you can see yet I didn't get the top rated badge, is that's normal?

Abdelrhman, relax mate, I've used to be top rated more then 1 year along, and can tell you it does not impact on anything at all, once I even started thread here, that I can't get any client being top rated. But people start talking 'you are writing bad cover letters', and other standard information from upwork help. Currently situation are next: there are imblance between clients, and freelancers. This imbalance just rising, so upwork made more fee, paid connects, etc... We should expect soon upwork will make something else to balance it a little, because paid conencts did not change situation much. Also they should consider bring more clients instead of cut freelancers, but it seems imbalance just too big.
