Hey Naomi


Might Upwork consider:

1. Classifying some jobs as "for new users only?"

2. Set a time limit for persons to be considered as "new users?" 

3. Let persons poting jobs know and let freelancers know as well

4. This can be seen as spoon feeding but it could do a lot to encourage new users

5. Set a rate/cost/pay limit for these jobs

6. Allow a job poster to have only a small number (maybe 3) jobs classified for new users only.


What do you think?

Can anybody give me an honest feedback about my profile?

re: "Can anybody give me an honest feedback about my profile?"


Your profile photo is wrong. Replace it.


Your profile page headline identifies you as a "C# and Delphi developer".


But the photo does not show a C# and Delphi developer. The photo shows a stand-up comedian.

Haha, nobody told me that before. Actually the picture is taken from a conference at which I was a speaker. I had NO idea I look like a stand-up comedian.


Thank you for your feedback. Will change the photo ASAP.
