UPDATED AS OF 7/27/2018:
As a global platform for collaboration and professionalism, the Upwork Community is here as a place for interesting, thoughtful and helpful conversation. With active participation, the Community can be a great way to make friends, share information, and gain a more engaging experience on Upwork. We want you to come here to have fun and we hope you’ll find some useful information along the way too!
Every great Community needs a few guidelines and we have ours listed below. As a Community Team, it’s our responsibility to ensure we’re fostering the best possible Community for all members and the Upwork brand. Members are asked to treat each other with respect and behave in a professional manner. That being said, we draw the line on a few areas and behaviors that jeopardize the well being of our Community and the members within it.
By using Upwork’s Community Forums you acknowledge that:
You may lose your posting privileges if you violate any community policies.
Please familiarize yourself with the complete set of guidelines below. If you come across anything in the Community that appears to violate these guidelines, use the “Report Inappropriate Content” option to let our team know about it.
Using the Community forums:
The following are violations that may result in immediate post removal, warning, board sanction and/or suspension from the site:
These guidelines are not exhaustive and the Community moderators will have full discretion to remove any content (which includes downloadable links, third-party apps and extensions) they deem inappropriate. This includes messages sent through the private message area of the Community. In addition, the moderators are not obligated to remove any content, even if it violates the Guidelines. You should understand, violating these Guidelines may have consequences ranging from a warning to banning.
On occasion, we will move discussions if they belong in a different category. We will also close/remove duplicate discussions and/or replies that we deem to be inappropriate or disruptive to the community, this also includes revoking kudos given on those posts. Our intention is not to censor, but to foster an environment that is easy to use and productive for all those involved.
