Time Frame for Group Acceptance

I requested entry into a group about four weeks ago and have not heard a word. When I go to the group, it just says "membersip pending." Any advice would be appreciated but it would be more appreciated for group adms to work in a timely fashion.

  • We join several groups each week and acceptance usually runs from instantly to a couple of days. That said there could be many reasons why your membership is still pending. It could be the GO doesn't have any admins and has not been able to sign in for a while because of a personal issue. It could also be that they are not currently accepting new members for any reason including deleting posts or internal issues. Several groups like to keep to certain number so only accept new members a few times a month. Personally, I wouldn't join a group that took that long to accept members without some kind of message on the homepage but, if you really want to join the group you can contact the group owner from the group homepage and ask what's up. It is possible though not likely that they are missing the application.
