What is Lithium and why is it asking for my password when I click "Forum" from my oDesk page?

Hi Sobuz,


I have followed up with the Team about your profile review and they will get back to you as soon as possible. Meanwhile, I would recommend you not use all capital letters in your profile name and only capitalize first letters.


Thank you!

Hello Umair,

Had the same problem, what you do check upwork support team sent you a message in your inbox, read the text then reply to that very text accordingly. Make sure that you include what was indentified missing on your profile.

Hi Sami,


Sorry about the delay. Could you please update your profile picture? Currently it's a long shot and doesn't show your face clearly. If you crop it closer, it will look much better. I would also suggest you focus your profile overview more on the kind of work you can provide for clients on oDesk and particular skills you have.


Thank you!

I'm trying to get registered, but am having a hard time turning my driver's license and recent bill into a JPEG instead of a PDF. Is there any other way to submit this information so that I can complete registration?


Thank you,
