[Approval] Notice
« on: August 20, 2014, 05:51:29 PM »
Just fyi to the folks waiting on accounts.

If you're account is at 163.com, forget it. I'll likely never approve folks from that domain especially if your username is just a smattering of apparently random characters.

If you're at a personalized domain (like mine; schelin.org), there's a good chance I'll quickly approve you.

If your username or email address seems mosaic or otherwise craft related, you're likely to get a quick approval.

Generally if your email or username has numbers in it, especially random looking ones vs 2008 or 1955, it'll likely take a bit longer as I check out the accounts.

Otherwise your standard yahoo, hotmail, gmail accounts take some research on the 'net to see if you're legit. That'll take a bit longer as well.

My email address is around here somewhere. I'll generally approve you quickly if I get a personal "hey, it's me and I'm waiting on approval" or some other such heads up. Keeps me from thinking you're a spam bot or something.

Generally it shouldn't take more than a few days however personal stuff does take priority plus I'm moving everything to a new server which will also impact my time.

Thanks again for your patience.

Okay, caught up again. And just FYI for the new folks, I do search on user names and/or email addresses. It's interesting what you can find :D

Enjoy the site!
