    I received a connect request from a person on Maven and when I selected Connect with Ian, the next page that opened was:

    The page you are trying to access is not available due to one of the following reasons:

    specific user privacy settings
    incorrect page address
    you have no permission to access the page

    Please contact Maven for further assistance.

    As a consultant for Maven, you do not pay any fees. You will earn the full total of your hourly rate x hours worked for a Client.

    If you experience technical difficulty, please email info@maven.co so we can diagnose the problem and fix whatever technical glitch may have occurred.

    I continue to get error messages with everything I do on Maven and I have yet to have anyone contact me back about helping resolve these issues.

    It's not clear from your message, but if you haven't emailed info@maven.co to begin a troubleshooting inquiry, that's the first step. We'll need more specific information concerning the error messages you're getting in order to be able to assist - what do they say, in what step of the process do they occur, what browser are you using, etc. -
    and screenshots are always helpful. We are not aware of any general outage that could be the trouble, so please email us for further assistance.
