    Hi,

    I'm another stuck in the approvals queue, and in an effort to skip it, I'm wondering if it's worth me asking work friends (there's half a dozen or so guys here who are on TCE iirc) to vouch for me, or is it just the sheer volume of people registering that makes it all take so long?

    ta.

    Absolutely :) Get your mates to vouch for you in PMs to one or more of the mods and you should trip across the line that much quicker.

    It's even quicker if one of the mods thinks you've got some personal dirt on him.

    The situation with the email admissions queue is, umm, ongoing. Currently the fastest, most reliable, way in, is to get an existing member to vouch for you.

    I guess I'll have to get some folks I know to vouch me me then. Thanks for the tip, I'm off to get some knee pads.

    PM please, the email queue is part of the problem.

    I had someone PM an administrator for me, but am happy for any other pointers on what to do (other than those listed, which I did). In anycase, I will continue to lurk on the fringes until I can start getting into the meat and potatoes of conversations.

    It may be the 'an administrator' bit. Right now, they should PM me.

    I here there is punch and pie on the inside... is this true?

    Not quite. There's discussions that get so angry that they would lead to punching, while the rest of us sit around listening to it and eating pie...

    When I was 'approved' it came pretty quickly(maybe 2 days max) because I was referred by a member.
    Sadly, it seems I cannot view the meat of the forums here because me lurker post count is so low. le cry

    Post count has nothing to do with how much of the forums you can see. Either you're in or you're not ;)

    *edit*

    Your status says "Not From Round Here" so you haven't been approved yet.

    Weird, last year I was able to access all the forums during the Tim Langdell fiasco but it seems I am not able to now.

    Looks like some kind soul has re-approved you: you're One of Us again, now.

    I suppose pestering two co-workers would be a bit too much.
    Maybe next week :)

    Not received any PMs here. I usually deal with vouches within a day or so, but they have to PM me.
