Linkedin link not verifying via profile / start up page.

Hi there!


Hoping someone can assist me. I've created two accounts now and both have not got past the creation stage for the same reasons. My first was my pen name which I was really hoping to write through on here because then It has all of my information on my linkedin account. However for whatever reason it wouldn't accept the link.


So I've left it a couple of days and tried to create an account from my actual name. **Edited for Community Guidelines**


Unfortunately this comes up as a none Linkedin link also.


I am totally at a loss as to how to progress at this point. I've tried Data and it appears that despite the high recommendations there is no direct contact us link.


Can anyone assist?

Hi Gareth,


Could you please try adding your LinkedIn URL but without the last backslash? Also, please keep in mind that opening more than one freelancer profile is not allowed. Please close one of your profiles as soon as possible. Thank you.
