I've tried to join this Group with no joy as I get an email from Yahoo stating that the Moderator has not approved my request in a 14 day period


Anyone know the Moderator of the Group / or in the Group (now that can help-?

I had a similar experience recently. Then I checked my junk/spam mailbox . Embarrassing.

Joes Shop Supporting Member of TMP04 Jun 2017 7:57 a.m. PST

Wargamorium: nothing in my Spam Folder.

I received this from Yahoo in my Inbox:

"Hello,

Your request to join the BATTLE_Practical_Wargaming group was not approved.
Your membership was automatically rejected because the moderator didn't
approve it within 14 days. We do this to provide a high quality
of service for our users.

If you want, you may attempt to join this group again.

You may find other groups to join by searching or browsing the

Thank you for choosing Yahoo Groups.

OK.

Well it was it a suggestion.

Maybe they just don't want you in their group. That's all I can think of.

Regards

Wargamorium: you took my post the wrong way 'just pointing out that it wasn't a case of the approval going to my Spam Folder.

Maybe you're right and they don't want me…but…I'm a nice guy…LOL!

Wargamorium04 Jun 2017 3:46 p.m. PST

Well then it is their loss.

Regards

Probably the moderator is away and the request timed out. How active is the group?

Clays Russians04 Jun 2017 4:02 p.m. PST

Yahoo groups are gong the way of the dodo bird I believe

Joes Shop Supporting Member of TMP04 Jun 2017 4:08 p.m. PST

Fred: could be, I will try again at a later date. I'd say not very active from what I can see on the first page but it's my understanding that they have a good Files Section for the rules.

CR: agreed, but some of the Groups I'm on are very active and a good resource.

Hi. What is it you are lo King for from the group? I have some files that the group shared so maybe I have what you are after. I am not good with yahoo groups – the format doesn't suit me

I just left a message on the group, or rather, tried to. Yahoo doesn't seem to work with andoid tablets very well!

Marc33594 Supporting Member of TMP06 Jun 2017 7:31 a.m. PST

Member of the group and to answer your question not very active. Maybe can change that if they let you in Joe!

Joes Shop Supporting Member of TMP06 Jun 2017 11:37 a.m. PST

Marc the plastics fan: thanks! (email sent)

Altfritz: thank you.

Marc: maybe, I just don't know the secret handshake LOL!

altfritz06 Jun 2017 7:16 p.m. PST

The daily digest just came in so perhaps the moderator will read it and then this thread…

Joes Shop Supporting Member of TMP08 Jun 2017 6:30 a.m. PST

I just submitted the second request to join this morning (EST) so hopefully it will 'work' this time.

Marc33594 Supporting Member of TMP08 Jun 2017 9:37 a.m. PST

The rules do bring back memories. Was my first commercial set of rules and got me started. Think the old Angriff rules were my second.

Well, another 'pass'. Just posting this in case other members try to join in the future and run into the same situation:

"Hello,
