United Nations Application?

31-10-2004, 03:43
About ten hours ago, I applied to join the United Nations (and yes, I've double checked to make sure that I have actually applied- it says my application is pending and the UN is really slow :P) I have not yet received notice about being approved or declined.

Normally, I wouldn't worry, but I saw another nation apply and get accepted within the same minute! Does the UN hate me, are older nations served first, is this a bug, and/or is the UN really just that slow? How long can I expect to wait?

My nation is less than 48 hours old, and it's the first and only nation run by this household/IP address. If you need any further clarifications or information, just ask. Thank you for your time.

UN apps can take several days. Don't worry, you'll get a telegram and an email eventually.

Okay, thank you. I'm not really impatient, just worried about not getting in at all :P

hehe... no worries.

And the UN doesn't do things by age either. My last application took a couple of days. Which can be irritating when you want to switch. :)

You just have to accept the vagaries of the UN application process. :D

If you don't get an email after a few days, check your junk mail folders, take off any spam filters, and re-apply.

When you apply there is a little note that says applications take 24 to 36 hours!

I don't think I ever had a problem with hotmail, even with the spam filter on.

I got my email ^.^ I use a email, despite the fact that it's a bit notorious about accidentally filtering good emails. Thank you all for your help and reassurance.
