Its really easy

Oh yes that is a fantastic tool!

What got you interested in doing that? How did you find out about it?

Will you be adding photos and video?

I signed up on April 2nd. I just checked and am still pending! How long does it take to be verified?

I think it depends on how you choose to be verified. You can do it via phone or via postcard.

The phone should work relatively quickly.

I chose the phone method. I reapplied again tonight.

I would think no more than 2 weeks.

They called about 5 minutes after I made my last post. Said I would be verified today.
