5. How do I get VIDed at a powwow?

In order to have your ID verified at a powwow by a member who has the authority to verify identities, you must show that person picture identification when you meet him or her in person.

As with other VID methods, the name on your picture ID must match the real name you have entered in your profile. But unlike the other VID methods performed by site staff, you must also elect to show your real name on the site. Otherwise the member won't be able to see your name and compare it with the name shown on your ID. After you are VIDed, you may choose to hide your real name again if you wish.

You can edit the real name in your profile by selecting "My ProZ.com->My Settings->Personal Data" from the menu.

You can choose to hide or show your real name in your profile by selecting "My ProZ.com->My Settings->Basic Profile" from the menu.

Once you have shown your real name on the site, met a member with VIDing authority in person and shown him or her your picture identification, you can submit a request to that person to verify your identity on the site. To do so, go to the VID application page.

On the VID application, select the "met in person" option, and select the name of the person you met from the drop down list of authorized VIDers. (If the person's name is not in the list, he doesn't have such authority.) Then enter the date and location of your meeting, and submit the form. The person will receive an email request to verify your identity.

A quick note to Wenke to say Thanks for organising it. I had a good time, it is nice to talk "shop" occasionally and to meet others in the same trade (freelancing can be a lonely business!), we should try to make it a regular event.
