    Yes there's been a few people that have recently received the form. There's been no further updates from those members because it's only been a few weeks since they received the form. I wouldn't expect a decision to have been made yet.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    That's a case of "how long is a piece of string" could be anything up to several months.

    Hello @chucky1

    Welcome to the community! :) It can unfortunately be a long wait. If you'd like, we have debates, play games and get to know each other over in the Coffee Lounge. It may help you keep your mind of the wait :)

    There hasn’t been any feedback on review timescales for almost 3 years. Unfortunately it’s just a waiting game now.
