No. As an active Looker, you will receive notifications for Looks as they come available in your area. As an independent contractor, you are free to accept or decline any Look and will not be penalized in any way.
1. When another Looker in your geographic area completes the Look, he or she will gain more experience and become more important in the notification algorithm.
2. If the number of Lookers in the area is low, we may have to recruit more Lookers in the area, which will increase your competition in the future.
Please keep in mind that, as a Looker (independent contractor), you will never be forced to accept any Look at any time.
