Hi :)
The trick is not to take it personally even if they have to reject you first time you apply.  Part 
of the process is to try to find 2 people that are already members who are willing to and who have 
time to support your application.  One bunch of us were somewhat depending on getting accepted in 
the right order but it kinda fell through.  So, just apply again [shrugs] if you don't get in first 
time.  Copy&paste is good.

Tom :)

Hmmm, i still haven't looked but would be  very disappointed if it really is only official 
members.  However fast the application membership process is it's unlikely to ever meet demand.  
I'm hoping for a bit of a "snowball effect" = as more people become members it becomes faster to 
process the applications.  

I'm not an official member either and even amongst those that contribute a lot only a tiny 
percentage are officially members.  It seems likely that i might even be thrown off the lists 
soon due to a few disagreements i am currently having with the BoD.  I'm often in that position 
so it's unlikely i would ever be allowed to be a member!  On the other hand some in the BoD 
applaud me :)  [shrugs]

I don't know much about their process. I know I applied and am waiting for feedback. I know that 
to be a member there are a few requests from TDF. They want commitment and I think that's the 
biggest thing. I've only been a contributor for about 4 months but in that time I've become really 
involved so we'll see. I agree, the survey shouldn't be just for members, that being said, wording 
should change to not confuse people if that's the case .
