i Cannot become an autho

Good day all. i have been trying to set up my account to become an author, but it seems i can’t do that.
i get no error from envato “https://author.envato.com/join”. it always redirects me back to the beginning after i click “take me to my dashboard”. is there something i have to do first before joining the authors

You’re already a member so you don’t need to re-sign ( dsaved )

how do i go to my dashboard if i am already an author.
when ever i click the dashboard link it takes me to become an author page

Assuming you are logged in to the marketplace what happens when you use this URL? https://themeforest.net/author_dashboard (obviously this is based on a TF author)

i get kicked back to https://author.envato.com/join

Have you tried clearing your cache? Logging out and back in?

When you hover over your username top right you should see similar to this

did that, no changes. still the same issue
