Of course, fake names and fake profile photos are a different matter from time zones.


I know for a fact that at least one person flagged the original poster's profile using the "fake name" and "fake photo" criteria.

I also remember another embroidery guy fairly recently - nice work - but Upwork might not have been the right outlet.


Life on these platforms can be  complicated  . . .


Is it really impossible for Upwork to set up an approval panel that at least can suss out the obvious fakes? If we freelancers can (even me a technophobe), why can't Upwork with all the latest techno gadgets at its fingertips?

I think we all should turn this discussion around and reply to the question - What's right with his profile.


Now, don't everyone just in at once.

I was going to say the last sentence of their overview but considering how many rules they're breaking, I'm not sure that's accurate either.


OP, let's assume that you really are an embroidery digitzer and you just somehow accidentally added the wrong name and photo. You need a portfolio and a more concise title. You also need to drop your hourly rate by a factor of at least 10.
