Hi Mashal,

 

I checked and your account has already been accepted. Feel free to start sending proposals on projects. Please, make sure you check resources in this post to help you get started.

I submitted all three of my free proposals before my account was approved. The account has since been approved, but my proposals page does not load and none of the jobs I applied for show that I've already submitted.

 

My "connects" are gone, but I don't appear to have any active proposals.

 

The lack of a customer support department is a major red flag...is this whole site just scam after scam?

It's not possible to submit proposals until your account is approved, so you must have used up your 20 free connects. You can simply buy more and continue to place bids.

There's no lack of customer support, it's just that there are millions of freelancers on this platform and most of them can't be bothered to read anything for themselves to find out how things work, so I would imagine that CS is pretty tied up. I'm sure that a moderator will come along to assist you shortly.

There are certainly a few scam projects posted every day, but just make sure that you have a contract in place and your client has verified their payment method before you do any work, and you should be fine.

I definitely submitted three proposals (Yes, for 6 connects each), and could see an "Already Submitted" badge at the top of each job posting I applied to. At that point in time, I could see the proposals in my "Proposals" page. Hours later, I received an email notifying me that the account had been approved. After receiving the email, my "Proposals" page doesn't load at all, and the "Already Submitted" badge is gone.

 

I understand that each proposal costs 6 connects (as I am able to read). My concern is that the "connects" have been spent, but the proposals have disappeared. Surely I can't be expected to buy more "connects" simply because the website isn't fully functional.

Hi Tyler,

 

I checked and can confirm that your proposals were successfully sent to clients. This you can check under your Proposals page or Connects History.

 

The confirmation email is usually sent within 24 hours from the time the account gets accepted. 

 

Please, make sure you check resources in this post to help you get started.

 

Thank you!
