Denied from ATCS yahoo group.
« on: July 30, 2012, 12:20:02 AM »
I wanted to check out and try ATCS so I went to download said software. The download sire requires membership to the Yahoo group. My membership was denied. Reason lists as: Autodeny due to lack of approval after 14 days. Is that group still active?

I do not know. I was denied also.

It's active as I still get stuff in my email.
Perhaps this is a issue of the moderators there. Not sure what the deal is. Indyspy on here is also on there. I'm on my phone but if I get a chance I'll ask on there or maybe he can and see what's going on.

I will see what I can do, but the group has gotten terribly xenophobic lately.
If in doubt, Notch it out!

It may have been my fault as well.
All Yahoo group info goes to my Yahoo account and it was abandoned almost a decade ago. They sent a second e-mail saying please send us your full name, location, callsign, ect within 48 hours. It got buried in junk mail so I never saw it til now.

I tried joining several years ago, and as far as I could tell, the moderation team took no action.

You do have to respond to the questionnaire they send out.

I did. I should have said there was no action after that.

I wouldn't panic just yet. It could be a simple as the mods being on vacation or something.

In my case, the request was three years ago, and I just lost interest!

Sounds something like railpictures.net.  Rejected, not approved.

I never got a denial or approval from them. Nothing. :(

Retry.  Most people don't have issues.

I think losing interest also had something to do with not retrying!

Its fun to see it.  I went through a period were I lost interest in it 2 times.  I was involved in it when it first came about, but do to lack of ATCS here I finally dropped out of it.  Then it came back and I was interested due to the installation here and my helping find the host and install it.  Then lost interest and when we took to moving the server and gained more interest I took back into it again.

I became intrigued with when I was at Rochelle in 8/09, as both the visitors center had it on a monitor, and many traveling railfans had it on their laptops. But...

The mods that approve memberships have not been around. The group owner and maker of the ATCSmon software has gone off the grid as well, so to speak.
If in doubt, Notch it out!

I sent a request to join the group three to four weeks ago,  have not received any emails from them.  On the ATCS Monitor home page it says "Membership Approval Pending"

I signed up and they asked me some questions and I was approved.  Funny though I have sent them some e-mail and never heard anything back.

I had a similar experience...sent the request...crickets.  Life got in the way of pursuing it more diligently in absence of any reply from the group.   Is there another way of getting the software necessary to do this?  It sounds like something I would enjoy.   Thanks!

Just beware there is no use for it with CSX traffic.

Depends where you are.  Some spots will stay on for a while longer, others have been gone a year or more.
