Did you just realise that your freelance post is gone? And didn't you close/take down the post yourself? Well, there is a good reason for that.
It is simply because you have been too slow on deciding who you want to hire for your shift. When you have received 5 times as many applications as chabbers needed for the shift, you have three days to decide on the applications. If you have neither denied nor hired a single chabber within these three days, the post will automatically be closed.
We owe the chabbers to tell them whether they have been chosen for the shift or not, instead of keeping them waiting.
So, if you just remember to keep yourself updated on the activity on job posts, you will not experience this problem.
