I have a problem with the access to the Certified Pro terms and conditions which I must accept to be granted the badge. I've written to Patrick several times but to no avail so far.

When I click the link received in the congrats e-mail -, I get the following message: "You do not appear to be authorized to see this page."

It would be great if someone from the staff looked into the matter. Thanks in advance!

You should have access now Nov 3, 2008

Dear Piotr,

You should have access to the agreement now. (There was a small bug in the system which prevented you from viewing the page.)

Thanks for supporting the site!

Kind Regards,

Different access problem Nov 3, 2008

When I click on the link, I get a message saying that I can only get access if I first provide a peer review of another translator. Since I feel that I can not in all honesty answer the questions required in a peer review, I guess my Pro days are over before they began...
