Do old, unanswered proposals count against your profile / rating?

Hi there, does anyone know if old, unanswered proposals count against your profile / rating? I have several that have been up for close to a month, and its clear to me that the client has moved on (for any number of reasons).

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

An unanswered proposal doesn't hurt me.

 

Sometimes freelancers report getting an invitation from a proposal that is many weeks or even months old. But that happens rarely.

 

Sometimes I look at the list of pending proposals and delete them if they're a month old or more. Just to keep the list clean.

No.

Thanks - just another question, how long to you let proposals stand? I have some for which the posting hasnt been looked at by the client for days, sometimes even two weeks.

I don't know. I never look at them again once I've sent it, that's simply a waste of time.
