I won't be able to accept any new work for the next 2,5 Month and I was wondering if this will effect my top rated status. Will I loose the badge through inactivity?
After that said period I'll be available again for new projects on Upwork.
Thanks in advance, Helene
To earn and maintain Top Rated status you must have:
8. Activity on the platform (proposal, accepted invitation, or earnings) in the past 90 days
So it seems like just submitting a proposal occasionally should be enough to keep TR status.
Will you be working on at least one of the two existing projects? If so, you can be unavailable indefinitely. As long as you're getting paid (once in three months is just fine), it means you're active, and you don't have to accept new contracts.
I've been unavailable since March and will be so until September I think. As you can see, it doesn't affect my TR.
