    I applied about a week ago and definitely been here more than two weeks! When do I become one? Thanks!

    Takes a while for the staff to review and come to a decision.

    It take time for them to go through the applications it can take up to two weeks or more I think depending on how many people have applied for the full membership status.

    It takes them time to go through the applications and then they also have to go through your profile and your posts

    So the more posts you have, the longer it may take

    From what I've read in other threads, they don't go through every post; however, they do say it usually takes 3-4 weeks and sometimes more.

    There should be a "when can I become a full member official thread" like the "do I pass" in the gender forum.

    Just ask politely and make your case! But no all kidding aside it does take time. Eventually, you'll see it come up at random.

    Based off answers in previous threads about this - the waiting time is about a month. Just remember though, all the staff have lives outside of ec too. But yea, as has already been said, they have to go through your post history and profile - AND that of everyone else who's applied. So it can take some time. I'd tell you how long mine took, but I no longer remember - it was such a long time ago! But don't worry too much, you'll hear back if you're accepted or declined :slight_smile:

    Folks, we know the full member wait is really long and we are working on solutions to make it shorter. Right now it is running 3-4 weeks for most applications.

    The staff is more consumed with moderation tasks than a year ago as our post volume has grown dramatically along with full member apps. We are getting to them as best we can. Thanks for your patience.

    Oh I was about to post a same exact question, but I suppose JStevens beat me to it. It's fine I suppose, but then I suggest informing applicants about the possible time they have to wait. I didn't expect it to take much longer, and I was starting to think that maybe my application was lost due to an error or not sent at all.

    I can't even remember how long ago it was that I asked. I swear it was a few weeks ago.
