[Edited - They're back] Has "Similar Contractors" been killed off? I'm sure I could still see them yesterday, today: GONE !

**************** EDITED : Never mind - They're back ******************************

Hmmmmm - Has "Similar Contractors" been killed off? I'm sure I could still see them yesterday, today: GONE !

I looked at a dozen random profiles (On Firefox and Explorer) and can't see it on any of them! Is that a bug (It would be the BEST bug ever introduced) or has oDesk decided to kill this universally hated feature off for good?

I hope it's the latter!

Nope... still there

Do a refresh on your browser, and you´ll see the feature there. I still see them today.

Not for me......

Refreshed browser, tried on my contractor account, from my client account, on the laptop in firefox (hard refreshed) and Exporer (hard refreshed) and on the iPad.

No matter whose profile I click on - there are no Randoms on them.

However, when they first appeared some of them couldn't see them either, remember?

You´re right

True, Petra! Well, isn´t it wonderful to at least not be able to see that feature? LOL

By the way, I haven´t tried with Firefox, but I noticed this with Opera yesterday. I thought it was very weird that so many contractors had opted out from the Similar Contractors. Until I god suspicious and did a couple of refreshes and saw them again.

I have no idea what is going on with this website.

I am using chrome, the feature was there this morning ( 4-5 hours ago), now it seems to have disappeared.

That's funny, Reynaldo, because now I can see them again!!!

How incredibly strange!

When you could see the Randoms I could not. Now I can see them and they've vanished for you.

WTH?? I did a quick random

WTH?? I did a quick random check before I made my 1st post on this thread and they where gone. Checking again (same contractors) and its back???... whats going on?

Peekaboo?

I haven't been able to see

I haven't been able to see mine for ages and I assumed they were taken off as I asked. Could they still be there? If so, I wonder who my "competitors" are. There used to be one with a rate of $1.11 an hour.

They are not there

I just checked your profile with with IE, Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome with hard refreshes each time, but I can´t see the Similar Contractors on your profile. Just to make sure the website doesn´t play dirty little tricks again, I also checked with other contractors´ profiles, and I see the Similar Contractors there. So apparently, oDesk removed them from your profile.
