Is anyone approving members?

Who is approving new members? There is a post on FB that people have been waiting weeks to be approved. Anyone doing it anymore?

If so, one guy Carlson08 would like approved.

I don't know him but another guy said this site is sh*t so I thought I'd show him!! LOL!!

Oh alright.

Iíll go log-on to the desktop PC and approve whoever is waiting. Itís really only been a couple weeks since I did approvals.

A very large number of people who ďhavenít been approvedĒ are actually people who never verified with the site after being approved. This happens when their email provider deletes the auto-generated notification, or when the slack-jawed/impatient would-be member ignores the notification in his inbox.

Jen can approve members.

Otherwise, seems that Iím the one who does most of it.

With absolutely no sense of urgency.

I found the Post-It note with my Admin password under a pile of dust and spider webs.

Approved a bunch of cretins.

There will be some guy posting ads for erectile dysfunction and cell phones presently in the Ammunition forum or some dumb shit.

I'm glad WEG finally verified the IP address and put it up for a vote on the inner circle jerk. Approved. New member should consider himself lucky. This is a bona fide website

A Member here posted about a Kit available on CalGuns website...(their website is almost identical to FAl Files)

I went to the site to take a look and decided 'I would buy it' but I was first required to apply for Membership, as we are here.

I went through the process and immediately received an email telling me my Membership was under review. However; the review process took 3 days, in which time the Kit had sold the same day I looked at it.

Wasn't P****d off, more frustrated, so I can empathize with 'Newbies' wanting to join us.

Cheers,
Graham.
