    I made a thread in the BST section yesterday. Thereafter, I sent a pm to three moderators who were online at that time. I had yet not heard back from any one of hem regarding verifying the quality of my service. I tried the chat option but got no response. Since this is my first time, I want to know if I am missing something here. Thanks

    It just takes them a while I think to get to them.

    One day isn't long enough.

    "If you do not receive a response from the staff after two weeks, assume that your thread has been denied."

    HERE ARE THE RULES

    I linked you so you could read it in context. You messaged them, so if they don't respond in two weeks after sending your PM, I'd think they aren't interested. That's what I got out of it.

    Are you sure? Also, if it is true, how can I improve the chances of getting accepted next time. I mean I do fulfill the criteria mentioned there and I am ready to get the service reviewed as per the rules.

    Honestly, if they deny you, it will probably be because you still have a low post count. Even though, you are jr vip, you are barely over your 100 posts to be a jr. vip. And even though the rule doesn't really say you can't have a bst at 100 posts, they probably want you to gain a little more reputation before starting a bst. That is to protect members.

    Just my opinion.

    Even if this is the case, I do not have any problem waiting and building more reputation here. But if someone from the moderators can confirm the reason, it would have been better.

    You're speaking in past tense. They've most likely not made their decision yet, and considering it's been one day...this is all speculation. Why not give it some time before assuming anything?

    The main thing is to just be patient. As Marusia said earlier, it takes time, and 1 day is nowhere near enough time to know. Just give them time. They are busy and get hundreds of pm's daily.

    Edit: Also I would like to add that what I said above was only my opinion and I have no way what so ever of knowing if it is an accurate statement or not.

    Because I'm sure the moderators don't receive PMs from any other members on this board that are of equal or greater urgency, and definitely don't have lots of other tasks to attend to, and therefore must reply to you immediately because they are online and are therefore required to respond within your preferred time window. Sounds about right.

    You have seriously got to calm the fuck down. Do you have anxiety issues or something? Yes, it takes time. Holy crap. Things take time to get done! No way! Go to any of the BST threads and look at the original post date and the date of the approval post and you'll get an idea of how long it takes! Damn man.

    You gave a logical response here. I checked the BST threads and there is time difference between posting difference and approval date. I case I found it to be one day but I guess that it might be for more reputed members. I will patiently wait for a pm now. Thanks for your reply.

    I am sorry to bump this thread but it had been 10 days and I didn't heard anything from any mod. I do not say that my BST should be approved but at least I should be informed what is the problem from my side. If I do not get any response (even negative) from a mod, it feels very discouraging. I have tried to improve my reputation also in this time interval. I hope someone sees this and asks a mod to post a small message regarding the situation of the BST.
