Hi there! I am wondering if my profile is approved? I didn't receive the approval mail, but I was able to submit a proposal, which confuses me...Thanks!

Hi Marija,
If you are able to submit proposals then congratulations your profile is approved.

I have created a new profile last week but when I log in, I still see the same page, where you have to fill in your profile and submit it. Nothing happens.. Should I just be patient or is there a bug? 
Thank you for your support.
Kind regards,
