I'm really surprised.
How is it possible that so many profiles are being approved, which are either not because there is no information or they are clearly false (both in data and in portfolio)?

I only remember when I made my account and it cost me a lot of revisions to be accepted. And now there are some that are accepted automatically.

Is not Upwork trying to get rid of all this?
Well, I should start cutting it from the beginning, when creating the profile.

I would like to know who is cheating all these people who ask "stupid" questions in the forum, which only serves to make themselves more evident Smiley Sad

Hi Maria,

 

Please note that users can post in the Community forums before submitting their profile for review and don't need to have their profiles approved beforehand. I understand your concern prompted by the recent activity in the forums and can assure you we are continuing to monitor and ensure our profile review process is working as expected.

Most (almost all) of those profiles are approved, some are many years old, none have ever earned any money. They likely just lay dormant for years, then the "zombie-profile apocalypse happened"  Smiley Wink

That's what keeps me entertained by all this drama. Always the same country, but years and YEARS of inactivity and suddenly they spam the forum with a copy/paste question. I get the auto accepted spam accounts and what they are doing, but it almost seems like there's some rumor that spamming the forum will earn you money lol. 

 

The ones that want to suddenly change their country to China might be a clue.
