Great question @tmholbert. Once a pro hits their budget, they will not appear in search results until they increase their budget, or until it resets.

Yes. They do. But it’s worth noting that I’ve noticed there are some timeframes when my profile is not displayed (even though my budget is fine), the search results are significantly different than usual and the profile pics are all messed up.

I think TT is a testing their algorithm to extract most ’matchs’. Most matchs yields the highest returns for TT. I doubt the Pros returns feature, since it’s impossible to say for sure what exactly each Pros return is.

What is the fair way to distribute/feature Pros for work anyway?? The algorithm decides a Pros fate.

At this point, in my recent experience, hoping to be listed in search is like playing the slots.
