ADMIN: Pending Members, Please Read!

July 15th, 2008 11:03 am by Kelly

Please note: this post is “sticky” and will remain at the top o’ the page until I say so. Scroll down for newer posts.

If your membership to Kansas City Freecycle is still “pending” and you don’t know why, please go see our brand-spanking new Application page for more details:

In short, we require pending members to return an “application” before we approve new membership requests. Until then, you’re stuck in pending member limbo…for approximately two weeks, at which time Yahoo auto-expires your membership request and you have to go through the whole rigmarole again.

If you didn’t receive a copy of the application, most likely it’s in your spam folder, or otherwise eaten by the internets. No problemo; you can find a copy here!:

If you did receive a copy of the application and returned it - but your membership request is still pending - then it’s quite possible that we didn’t receive your reply. (Those intertubes be hungry, yo!) Please resend it, to all four email addresses listed in the application (i.e., kcfreecycle-owner [at], freecycler_sheree [at], ann [at], kelly [at] This will help to ensure that it’s not lost a second time.

Please and thank you for your patience and understanding. Yahoo can be a pain to work with; rest assured that we also get frustrated with its temperamental ways, too. Unless you’re willing to finance the development of a dedicated KC Freecycle system, we’d appreciate it if you could keep the complaining to the minimum. Really, there isn’t much we can do! We are but lowly Yahoo users, much like yourselves.
