  • I own a group and I'm an admin on another. I usually get back to people in 2 or 3 days depending on how often I'm on here. The group that I'm an admin on is a large group with several admins so it usually takes less than a day when you apply to that group. If the groups are run by pretty inactive members then it could take quite a while I guess.

  • Oh and when you apply to a group it sends them an email so I wouldn't bother emailing them again, they probably just haven't logged on in a few days and will see it when they do.

  • Yeah, bigger groups (with more than one admin) often get back to you in a few hours, smaller groups generally take a few days.

  • Hi OP! Application approval time all depends on when the Group Owners and Admins log in and view the apps. If it's been a while since your application date feel free to contact the Group Owner directly. I often have to remind myself - we're all moms on here and I know first hand how busy we can get! And if you don't hear back from her, you can always keep searching for more groups to join.
