There's an old expression: If it ain't broken, don't fix it. Thumbtack has never been perfect since the day I joined, but it was worth bidding on a job occasionally. Then, somewhere along the line, someone at Thumbtack thought it might be a good idea to change things up. Raise the amount a musician would have to pay for bids, and to be honest, I'm not sure what the heck else you did. All I know is - I can't afford to use your "service" anymore. But, thanks for asking. Let me know when you've figured out how to get us gigs at reasonable rates. In the meantime, I'll stick with the booking agencies that are serving me well (sorry, not mentioning any names). Good luck.
