Hi.

I was a verified member (with a grean check mark next to my name). Then I added a 'DR' next to my name because I passed my PhD viva about three months ago. Now the checkmark is disappeared although I changed the setting back.

I know I must have done something wrong. But could you please help me sort out this problem?

Kind Regards and Thanks

Maryam

4. Why is my identity not verified anymore?

If you change the given name, middle name, or last name in your profile after your identity has already been verified, your identity verification will be revoked. To get re-verified, you will need to submit a support request.


HTH, Ralf

Verified membership (or "usership") Sep 12, 2007

Maryam,

I had a similar problem: my verification was deleted for inexplicable reasons. (I also changed my ID, but in response to the deletion, not before: since I had to re-verify my ID anyway, I took the opportunity to amend it.) Despite support tickets and contact with the original verifier, I was unable to get ID verification restored.

I discovered however that you can have your ID verified by a credit-card payment of $5, which I found to be the simplest solution:

A bit disappointing! Sep 12, 2007

Hi.

Thank you for replying to my email.

I think, however, it is a bit disappointing to have to pay (even though the amount is small) if the name is still the same as before.

Kind Regards

Maryam

Seems lots of people are not identified, even long-standing paying members. Did we lose it when the site switched formats?

You are...? Sep 12, 2007

Hi,

Don't think so - in fact, I can still see the check next to your user ID; your ID was verified back in 2003.

Best, Ralf

Hi again,

Not visible to me on home page or on 'new' profile page.

I can see it on your profile page: check next to "Account type".

Ask Jared Sep 13, 2007

Hi Subhun,

your best shot is to post a ticket to Jared (the proz. staff) and explain the situation for him. He is very prompt.

Kind Regards

Maryam
