Workaway experience

Has anyone else been frustrated after trying to be a workawayer traveller but not receveing any replies from the people you reach? I have sent dozens of requests, trying to get an occupation that allowed me free accomodation and at least one meal, and most of the people didn’t reply and the one person that did was unavailable. That’s a little frustrating since I’ll be only available to traveling once this year. I feel like I wasted money buying a subscription to Workaway.
PS: I’m backpacking trough Europe this July, and I have sent those requests since Jan/February. Some of them did not even opened the message. And most of them did but didn’t even bother to respond.
