check youre spambox, or log out and come back a hour later, if its still not aproved i suggest to come back the next day. If the game asks you to submitt a new handle it means its denied and you need to create a new handle
tip: read the rules about submitting a new handle, it will safe you allot of time.
Checking new handles may take up to max 24 hours, but mostley its done in a few hours.
If waiting a hour is to long, then this may not be the game for you, patience is key in SWC
Anyway, good luck and welcome to SWC, may fortune smile on you
