Posts remain on the job board only until they have received 6 inquiries from makers. After that, those posts are not available for outreach and are no longer displayed on the job board.
This is based on extensive experience on what is best for both customers and makers, specifically:
- Hearing from 7+ customers makes customers less likely to transact
- Having too many makers makes the proposal process overwhelming for both customers and makers
You can adjust your [job alert settings](http://help.custommade.com/hc/en-us/articles/201349434-How-do-I-manage-my-Job-Board-Alert-emails-) to make sure that you see all new project requests on the job board.
