I'm reaching out to gather your thoughts and insights on this matter. How do you perceive the removal of the Boosting System? Do you think it will level the playing field for all freelancers, or are there concerns about project discoverability? Have you noticed any immediate effects since its removal? Or is it a Glitch? 

Looking forward to your thoughts!

Yes, I think it is removed and good for deserving freelancers.

I didn't know they had removed it. I think it's a good move, honestly. It was getting out of hand with people paying 80+ connects to boost their proposals.

It would be great if they remove the boosting proposal functionality because I've seen people boosted for the projects more than 1000 connect and ofcourse! not everyone can afford this if they remove this functionality it will be good for all good freelancer then we will win contracts by our skills not from connects.

Seems like its a glitch, an Upwork Community Rep is asking others which Job Posting are missing the Boost Function, so apparently this is not supposed to be happening.

Community Member

Yes, that is my understanding as well.
