Hey,

I'm sorry in advance if this is answered somewhere, but I was unable to find it. I'm unable to find any information on getting help with the Outreach Program. I signed up for it over a week ago and have still not received word. I'm not even sure if I'll be notified when I'm accepted since in the email it said nothing about that. Basically everything about it was left very vague in terms of how to know when you've been accepted and can move forward with it. It also says that when you're accepted, you have the webforms to fill out on your account page...is your account page just your profile page?

I've tried sending emails through support (Contact Us), but still haven't gotten anything. It says that it can take up to 7-10 business days, so this coming Friday (January 16, 2015) will be my 10th business day since signing up for it. But really, I'm also just unclear as to how I even find out if I've been accepted or not. For all I know, I may already have been.

If anyone knows information about this, please post. I'm sure it's something simple that I've just overlooked or overthought.

Howdy!

The individual who handles our Outreach Program has been working pretty heavily on Conferences recently.

I'll shoot him this thread and have him take a look at it!

(You get an email notifying your acceptance or denial of entrance to the program. The webform is on your profile. /user/(yourname))

Best,

Hey there,

I run the Outreach program here. I've just sent off your response. Sorry about the delay!!! As Baker said, I've been off-site quite a bit lately, and I've been working through the quarterly renewals timed with the new year. Going forward, you should expect shorter response times.

We're also working on re-writing the Outreach flow to make it more clear what our expectations are and what you should anticipate if you apply.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!

Hey,

Thank you so much! I was wondering if it had something to do with the holidays having just ended too, to be honest. Again thank you! And I understand: work is work. I look forward to being a part of the program!

Thank you so much, both of you, for this quick response!

EDIT: I forgot to ask, when I'm accepted, does my quarter begin at the date I get my email, or does it start at a predetermined date? I should say, does every quarter have a permanent start and end date?
