How long until a member contacts you?

Hi everyone, sorry if this has been asked before, basically I emailed Afed about joining a few weeks ago and haven't herard anything back, I don't mean to sound impatient or anything but I was just wondering how long it usually takes for a member to get in contact?
Thanks

Which address did you email? You definitely should've heard back by now - did you send it to the national 'join@afed.org.uk' or one of the local groups emails?

I sent it to the national address but I would like to get in contact with the London group since it's closest to where I'm based.

it could be that your email is treating emails for us as spam, so check your spam folder, and it might be an idea to add afed to your safe list, then try emailing again, or emailing london directly. or you could pm me your email address.

btw whats your avatar?

No, what happened was that London answered as soon as it received enquiry. Unfortunately, spamhaus block on our server Riseup means there is no outgoing mail ( for ANYONE who uses it), which is being queued until problem is solved.
In meantime I have emailed you from a hotmail account.
Sory about this.
( means we will have to email ALL our new contacts again!!)

Thanks, yeah an email has come through now, turns out an earlier reply ended up in my junk on hotmail and I didn't realise.

Figured I'd bump this thread instead of starting a new one, just incase my email about re-joining has got lost in spam. Maybe it's just me not being very patient grin

Emailed both join at afed.org.uk and sheffield at af-north.org btw

hey up, good to hear you're thinking of rejoining. the Sheffield group sec is without internet access at the moment so can you contact sheffield at bookfair.org.uk instead and someone will be in touch.

the AF, you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave

that's the one, but i broke the link so it doesn't end up getting a load of internet spam directed it's way by bots harvesting email addresses (actually, does that even work anymore?)
