Trouble getting "approved"

If anyone else has trouble I followed advice by someone else and emailed [email protected] and was able to get sorted.

Been trying for quite awhile to get approved here. Been lurking since I bought my first and only lbge. 

Anyway great wealth of knowledge here and I look forward to smoking out the neighbors.

    Welcome!

    When I first joined a couple years ago, I waited 3 weeks before getting approved.

    Lots of good information and people here. Don't forget to post pics

    Clearly the rise of competition has slowed the approval process.  I can't why it isn't "next business day at the latest" service unless the approval guru team has been "right-sized". 
    Back when this was a friendlier place it was quite quick but evidently those days are long gone.  ;)

    First time I've been called "the local forum hookup"! Think I'll take that as a compliment  vs. being the board's hooker!  =) =) =)

    While I have never been on Face Book I do receive emails from members there as referrals. Within the passed 4 or 5 months I've been surprised how often that the senders have mentioned their difficulty and frustration of getting approved for this forum. Time frames have been from weeks to "a month or two"! Several even have said they just gave up! 

    I agree with the earlier poster saying with competition coming from all sides that "corporate" would be telling the monitors to approve newbies in a matter of mere hours!

    Nobody would ever confuse you with a hooker, Ron, although all that money you’ve collected over the years does make people suspicious ;)

    Just curious, in all those years, has anyone ever paid you via wire transfer from a foreign bank?

    No, but I regularly receive offers to sell a Rutland out of the 2 billion dollar$ from $ome prince if I just return the difference in US dollars in care of some tent in the desert.

  • Im new here and I dont mean to complain, but I do have a question regarding the forum format,more specific, page numbers on a multiple page post. Most forums I visit let you know what page you are on while going from one page to the next. If I happen to be on page 3, the number is not underlined. On this forum, I do not see a way to tell what page you are currently on. Am I missing something or is the problem on my end?

    Welcome. If you ever get to the bottom of it, please let us know. You get used to the quirks after a while but it could be better for sure.
