Hi, I am a bit confused, last month my connects were renewed on the 18th but this time my connects were not renew again and to be honest I am a bit afraid, a few weeks ago I tried to report a suspicious client and I got an email from Upwork telling me that I was not going to be able to apply for jobs anymore. Fortunately, I tried submitting proposals and someone hired me but now that my connects are not being renewed I am afraid, am I not going to be able to keep applying for more jobs? I did not do anything wrong, please help.
It looks like you were able to articulate your feelings well. It is, indeed, scary to be unable to look for work. But I guess the principle behind such a phenomenon is "proper work ethics" -- that we get to finish one contract at a time and that our client is satisfied when he/she decides to terminate our life support system. That way, we will be able to build a reputation that we are finishers. I think clients need to have that assurance.
