I'm more annoyed by the treatment by Upwork and this is something which may lead me to moving somewhere else.


I agree accounts should be released swiftly after a hold (but usually the hold comes after a request was ignored?)

 

But I would not do the "If you don't change the way you do business I am leeeeeaaaaving..." threat.

 

 

Those are always funny, considering that Upwork has twice as many freelancers as it needs or wants in almost every category.

I have got the hold together with the request. The same happened last month.

The hold was finally removed, after 5 hours.

Not that bad, as it probably didn't affect any of my clients.

Hi, everybody.

 

Last week I received re-verify mail from upwork, but I don't understand why.

I already have passed video calling and ID verification.

But it need to video call again, and it says need to do for 10 mins.

My English skill is not so good, so I'm worry.

Hope someone to help me.

 

Thanks.

Re-verify means that you have previously done video verification.

And you are being asked to do so again.

It's NOT A BIG DEAL.

 

It would be a waste of your time to try to determine why. It could simply be random luck of the draw.

 

IT IS NOT an English language skills exam.

 

You won't be speaking English for 10 minutes.

 

re: "Hope someone to help me."

There is nothing to "help."

 

Just follow the instructionsn you received and get it over with.

It might be used to verify the English skill which he has set to fluent.

ha ha...well it sure isn't! This is the prompt I got after submitting my drivers license (against my better judgement, btw): Verify the Liveness....Clicking on this link with take you to our help center where you can verify your "liveness" and continue. Liveness? Really? Uh, not in the English vocabulary people. (see screenshot) Makes me very suspicious about this whole verification thing!
