Are you getting billed for proposals? If so, where does it show up? I've sent a couple proposals this week to see how it all works and didn't notice any additional billings on my reports.Seems that Upwork has began charging for Connects. 16 cents per pop.
But repeat clients don't need any Connects, so its good that repeat business isn't penalised.
Also, I got this email from Upwork:

Good point from Upwork that skill field develop too quickly for skills tests to update quickly.
Some of the skills tests were embarrassingly no better than middle-school comprehension tests lol.
Wonder what benchmark or filters that Upwork will use now to have freelancers stand out, to replace skills tests.
Maybe more power to portfolios, as typically should be?
Upwork is empowering profiles more, starting with specialized profiles. There are new questions and options you can add to make it easier for clients to figure out if you're worth their time. I haven't played with those yet because I got rid of my specialized portfolio a while back.
