WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY PROFILE TITLE?

What is the problem with my profile title? I had it entered successfully with no problem. Then when I tried to apply for a job it began to tell me that it contained "invalid text". I have REPEATEDLY tried to change and revise it and it REPEATEDLY tells me the text is invalid EVERY SINGLE TIME. I am an expert writer and artist. I have tried to enter a title to that effect and the site REFUSES to accept what I enter. WHAT ON EARTH IS THE PROBLEM? HOW CAN I GET A PROFILE TITLE ENTERED AND START APPLYING FOR WORK? THIS IS INSANE! WHY IS *_EVERY SINGLE TITLE_* THAT I TRY TO ENTER CALLED "INVALID"? WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO START APPLYING FOR WORK HERE? This is making me EXTREMELY angry, as you can see. I just want to get started working? Why am I encountering this maddening problem?

Have you tried using a different browser?

Hi, Please try clearing your browser cache and then do a hard refresh (Ctrl+F5). See if that helps. Otherwise please try switching to a different browser (Firefox/Chrome). If you still get the error please report to Customer Support. Hope this helps...

Same here. I tried changing my profile title and it won't let me. I cleared my browser cache, did a hard refresh and switched to a different browser (Chrome to Firefox) to no avail.
