I agree with a lot of the comments others have made. I USED to check this site on the hour, but I rarely check it anymore. The credit system or at least know what each job might cost was a lot better. I really could care less about sending quotes for free. It floods the market. Also, a lot of times people posting jobs never reply to anyone. I know you cannot control that, but it deters me to keep looking for projects on here when I know there is a good chance the poster is not even serious about hiring someone. Also, with the new system I don't care if I lose out to others for a job, but getting charged even if the customer sends a reply saying anything is also a huge deterent to even sending a quote. I would go back to using this site a lot more if 1. I knew how much it would cost to send a quote or 2. I only got charged when I actually got the job or at least advanced the discussion a bit. It would be on you guys to make sure that the customer was following up and hiring or considered hiring someone. I have been on the other end and hired someone on this site, have you ever considered charging people to setup a job? It would weed out all the useless jobs that get posted. This site only seems lately to care about quanity of profits over quality of projects that consumers and professionals are trying to accomplish.
