Great job Odesk, but no, not really!

Tell me something: do you guys have meetings in which you decide what to break next? Is there a bidding of some sort or do you just put everything in a hat and draw it out. Or is it just somebody who wakes up one morning and says "let's mess up this thing next"?
So I updated my skills according to the new system. Prior to this I was showing on page 1 on Business Catalyst...now I am nowhere to be seen in the first 20 pages. However, you can find on the first page SEVERAL contractors who don't list any Business Catalyst jobs, or positions or have it in title...but they mark it in skills and did not convert to the great new wonderful system of skills where BC is missing. So this means that in your new formula for calculating ranking self-listed skills go higher than previous jobs or resume or portfolio. Smart, really smart.....NOT. I think the next thing to try is to use shoe size in the ranking.
So even though almost half my jobs are BC jobs, more than half my revenue comes from them, I am not showing anywhere in the search. And this comes after the first run of search changes when I stopped being ranked on Project Management and the jobs stopped coming from that direction.
So prior to this change I was getting about 1 invite per week. I am very curious how many will I get next.
