It's been 36 hours since i requested activation of my account, and when I try the Lost Password method, I receive neither an "Invalid E-Mail" or a "Successful!" message, but an "Account not activated yet" message. What should I do now? Do I just need to wait, is there a way to speed the process, or do I need to start over creating an account?
Wait. Attempting to create a new account will result in both counts being declined.
All requests are accepted or declined manually, and while 24 hours is the expected period, if nobody can get to them then they don't get done.
However, I just looked at the join requests page, and unless you listed yourself as a multi-account, you should have received a reply. If you did list yourself as a multi, those can take longer since there's only one individual that handles all those join requests.
