Ravelry
Does anyone know the deal with Ravelry? I signed up for an invitation 2 days ago and haven't received one yet. They said I should expect an invite in one day. I did their tracker and I haven't moved up in the line at all. However, there are many people behind me in line.

Anyone know what's up?

Have you checked your junk mail folder? A lot of invites end up there. Also, you can check your status; click on the link on the front page, put in your email address and it will tell you if you're still waiting, or have already received it. If the status is invited and you can't find the email, just email the site admin and they'll instruct you how to get going.

Be patient, sometime invites don't go out exactly as scheduled, especially if Casey and Jess (the founders and operators) go out of town. I think the average invite rate is usually 1000/day, but sometimes it is fewer or none at all if there has been some glitch. Hopefully you should have your invite in a couple of days, and if you don't check the tracker again. Hotmail in particular is know to eat Ravelry invites, so you may have to contact someone if that is the case for you.

Hopefully you'll be in shortly - and in the meantime you can be glad the wait is now measured in days and not months!

It took a few weeks for me to get mine. Be patient, it's worth the wait!

hang in there, I just signed up too and I didn't get the invite for 4 days. I think they must be overwhelmed.

I'm jamiejeans on ravelery, too.

I read somewhere that they have a wait list for approvals.

I was thinking you had to be recognized in the knitting world as some kind of guru before you could be accepted.

If ya had to be well known or a guru I would have never got it

They did have a long waiting list, but that's pretty much down to a relatively short period of time now.
