Demo-only Forums -- Approval Process
 
If you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and would like to join the Demo-only Forums, please follow these instructions to apply for membership.

APPROVAL IS NOT AUTOMATIC JUST BECAUSE YOU APPLY – DUE TO THE PROPRIETARY NATURE OF SOME OF THE DISCUSSION IN THE DEMO-ONLY FORUM, WE ARE REQUIRED GET VERFICATION OF YOUR DEMO STATUS. Approval is done manually and takes time.

How to Apply:
  1. Click in the upper right hand corner where it says "Welcome, (Your SCS User Name)". There’s a little gray envelope there also. This will bring you to your Edit Profile page.
  2. Along the left side of the page is the Control Panel. Scroll down the control panel and click on GROUP MEMBERSHIPS.
  3. Click on the request to join the SU! DEMONSTRATORS GROUP button.
  4. Your name will now be added to a list of demos applying for membership. We will then send you a PM asking for verification and telling you what you need to send to our e-mail account for approval into the group.

***VERY IMPORTANT***
Make sure that you have your profile configured to receive Private Messages (PMs) . If you can’t receive PMs, we can’t approve you.

Click on your name at the top right. Click on “Edit Options” to the left. Scroll down and check the “Enable Private Messaging” box. Scroll down to the bottom and click the “Save Changes” button.

When you receive the approval process PM, please follow all the directions exactly as given. There is a reason for the info we request.

PLEASE do not e-mail or PM asking how long it takes or if you have been approved. We get dozens of approval requests each day and we cannot notify everyone of their approval. (see FAQs below for more info about this)

Please do not make repeated requests to join. This just slows down the approval process for everyone else. The longer it takes us to weed through repeated requests the longer it takes to get approved. :)

Please note, we must receive your verification info within three weeks from the date we send the PM requesting verification. If you have not responded by then, your request for approval will be deleted without notice. You will have to reapply. If you request to join and you do not receive a PM/email with the verification directions within 3 days, please send the Demo Approvals Team a PM. THE DEMO APPROVALS TEAM CONSISTS OF: vz5dzh (Lorien), Emma F, & DEBRA - DO NOT REAPPLY- just let us know. If we need you to reapply we will contact you.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this. If we all work together, the process can be a quick one. If you have any questions (other than “have I been approved?”:wink:), please let us know.
