    It appears, although the "admiral" may correct me, that the Listserv at the parents web site for the Class of 2013 is open for business. I got a notification from them recently so I am assuming this is the case. Parents of '13 should join up. I believe you have to be a parents association member but that goes without saying. It is a valuable resource and a lot of fun for "veteran" parents to read and respond to. :biggrin:

    Where do we find this. I went to the parent site and saw class of 2012, so I am missing something!
    Thank you!

    You have to sign up first and get a password. Go to the uscgaparents.org site and you will find out where to sign up. It is definitely up and running per this message.

    Ok...I signed up. Did not get a courtesy message saying that my request was received. It's only been a few hours. In this day and age, one starts to expect instantaneous results when doing anything on the internet. My question...how long should it be before I am "approved"? I wonder if I hit submit or if there was another button....maybe a "not now, I changed my mind".

    It is so hard being patient. Forgive me. Love, love, love all the info we are privy to because of YOU all at SAF....wanted some more. :rolleyes:

    Thanks everyone for going on this crazy ride with me....how many days more until this all really gets going? I would guess 31....? Or wait, more like 31 plus four academic years...lol! How will I get through it all? :shake:

    Ha ha 2013 is there, as shellz said, not in order.

    You will hear from them soon. 2013 is just getting up and running so be patient(where have we heard that?)

    The first week or so it will be quiet and then...watch out. The usual questions will come up and some we never thought of...but above all it's a great way to connect with other parents in your position. Nobody else knows what you are going through like a fellow parent.

    It is a lifeline during swab summer and beyond. The parents of 2009 are sad to lose this resource as it is like a family. Our day is past....boo hoo. :frown:

    I am sorry to be a pest....
    I signed up for "the list" but never saw a 2013 selection and never heard back. When I go to this page http://www.uscgaparents.org/index.html and log on, only 2012 comes up... really!! can anyone help me? I did sign up, and do remember my log on and password and they do work, but my only choice is 2012!!! What did I do wrong? When I follow that link I inserted above, there is a message that 2013 will be active soon.
    Please help!

    It probably means that the 2013 list is not 100% active yet. You will be able to access it once the Interim ListMaster activates it.

    PS - When you submitted your membership request, did you request access to the 2013 list on the drop-down menu?

    You're not a pest....:smile:

    I just signed up today, so maybe they just now put the 2013 on the original list serve sign up page. If you did this part earlier, maybe you will have to wait for something else to happen, an email or something? Or, maybe you can re-sign up with another alternate email....just make sure to scroll down and click 2013.

    Good luck!

    I requested access several months ago and haven't heard anything. Should I try again now that it's open? I appreciate the volunteer efforts and don't want to seem pushy by applying agian for access. Thank you.

    I logged on this morning with no problem. Also, I did not get any message that I was approved. I just logged in with my email address/password and voila! It worked just fine and dandy. Good luck! :thumb:

    I was finally able to log on with the profile information I gave 4 to 6 weeks ago and class of 2013 does come up. Were we supposed to receive email notification that we were ready to go? It doesn't really matter since I have now been successful at logging on, but I want to make sure that we don't miss something important later!

    Thanks! I didn't think to just try; I was waiting on an email confirmation of access.

    The usual protocol is you get an email when the listmaster posts new messages...this usually takes place every day or so. When things get hot and heavy(closer to r-day) you'll likely get notified 2-3 times a day. You can also just check in periodically without notification and you won't miss anything. It will all come together soon.:thumb:
