  • The group owners accept or deny when they see it. If you want to make sure it was seen message the owner. She may not have noticed your application.

  • It really just depends on the group. Some groups are quick to accept while some it takes awhile.

  • It really depends on the group owner and how quickly they get to things, how often they log in, ect. If you're concerned, you might want to send the owner a msg.

  • It all depends on the group and how often the group owner or admins are in there to look at the apps. In the group that I co-own it's the same day or the next day.

  • It could take 5 minutes, or it could take 5 months. It all depends on when the owner decides to approve it. :)

  • As everyone else has said it depends on the individual group. Most groups are really good about getting back to you within a few days, some even within a day. However there all kinds of reasons why they don't do it that soon. Only the Admin team can accept an app, it could be none have signed into the group recently or the specific person assigned to that task hasn't. It could also be that the group you have applied to is no longer accepting applications or is no longer an active group.

    When your application is processed either way, you will receive a private message saying you were or were not accepted.

  • One of my groups usually leaves applications in for a week plus before deciding just to make sure that the people applying are actually active on CM before accepting.
