I have 64 open proposals. Is that normal?

Seriously. Even with "boosting" I haven't hd a client view since yesterday. Another 20$. That means I have to make at least 80 on my next job to cover what I've spent on connects in the last week.

welcome to my world. Ive been "interviewing" with one client for a week now - and still no contract or even a milestone!

Lots of talk-no action!!!

Yes, new freelancers could have 50+ submitted proposals because they don't know how to properly best use the site.

But.. I'm not a new freelancer and I've never had this many open. Not when it was elance. not when reddit was popping. This is a sign more of spam bots. 


MY first week I got clients nearly every day. This happened around the 27th of feb when the spam happened.

Can I ask why your profile is not public?

That can greatly reduce views- but it also reduces spam
