I tried to create a login account, but received an error message that my Biography could not exceed 1000 words. My bio is only 200 words. What is the problem?

Although there are only 200 words in your Biography, there is probably code in the text that you can't see. This code takes up space and contributes to your word count.  This can happen if you copy and paste your bio from another source such as a personal webpage.  You might want to use Notepad (PC) or TextEdit (Mac) to strip the bio of code.  Or you could type in the text and this will resolve the problem.  If you need help, contact us.
