Hi!
The situation is like this. I am a proz.plat, but id not verified. Now there is a help system under FAQ, offereing 3 alternatives to get the ID verified, but that didn´t get my any further. Is it a moderator who is authorized to do this or a member who id is already verified, you who those who have a tick or a marking. I shall appreciate any help in this regard.
Mighty thanks in advance
brandis

Various ways of getting VIDded Jan 6, 2004

http://www.proz.com/?sp=vid_application&viewPage=apply

The above is the form to apply for VIDding. You can apply if you paid for your platinum membership by credit card or if you have one of the specified moderators in person. Only specific moderators who have themselves been identified in person have the right to VID other members.

I know this page. Actually I had paid using credit card. But apparently I still do not have this marking on my page ( you know that tick). I don´t even know whoever my moderator is. But is it the only solution. Could I not reach someone nearby whose ID is already verified and get my id also verified. Help

As much as I know agencies had a little different procedure.

I am not an Agency, sometime back I had contemplated to become one. But may be, to be a team is a better idea.

Have you completed and submitted the form? Jan 6, 2004

Have you completed and submitted the form and allowed a couple of days for processing? If so, and you haven't heard anything, I'd recommend submitting a support request!

Regards

Mary

Submit a VID application Jan 6, 2004

Brandis,

If the full name you set in your profile matches the name on the credit card you paid with, then you meet the qualifications for having your identity verified. You just need to submit a VID application.

http://www.proz.com/?sp=vid_application

Simply select the "paid for your Platinum Membership with your credit card or PayPal" option on the vid application page, select "credit card" as the payment method you used, and enter the approximate date that you made your payment. Then click the submit button at the bottom of the form. We will review our records and verify your identity.

Regards,

jg

The proz. N.Y had sent me a receipt of the payment. But would that be alone suffice the requirement! In that case I shall send the receipt back and get the VID-referral done. But the payment went through my brother´s credit card, and I had received the doc. acknowledging the payment.

Your name must match the credit card Jan 6, 2004

As Jason says above, the full name on the credit card must match your full name. So if you paid using your brother's credit card, you can't get VIDded in this way, I'm afraid.

Sorry, but I'm not entirely sure as to what other options are available to you. Maybe someone else can help. Jason, are you still there?

The name would never match, because I paid through my brother´s creditcard, who lives in Bahrain. How should I do it in this case ( Brandis is my site name - it is a short of my full name), whereas the name on the credit card is my brother´s name.

I shall send you the receipt as produced by proz.com, which would reflect the VISA number etc., I think that should do, but the holder of this card is my brother and he has another name and not a proz member. What to do now??

a suggestion Jan 6, 2004

Hi Brandis,

It seems the only way that you can get a VID is to meet a VIDer in person. However, when we open the dropdown list of VIDers in the page linked to above, all we can have is their names. It wouldn't be very practical to copy the name of the person, to paste it in the search box, to go to their page and find out where they are located -if entered- and to repeat this action a hundred times. For those whose only option is meeting a VIDer in person, a similar list with the whereabouts of the VIDers also entered would be of much help, I think.

Hi! I find your suggestion interesting. A change of design reaching this effect would probably bring the community together, at least regionally, resulting in Islands or colonies. A translators´ colony. Sounds funny though. Yes, it would be of great help if some change in the site design can be made along these lines.

Check if there is any in your area in the near future and get in touch with the organiser(s).
This would be another possibility for meeting other members that could verify your identity.

Regards,
Grace.

apparaently it is not getting me any further. missing (Tick). Next if not 3 weeks a friend would pay for my extension. The payment goes to my favour ( extending membership). How does anyone tackle this.
Thanks any way. Brandis
