Re: DAM approval wait time?

But what are you actually going to -do-? If I recall correctly, you've 
said on IRC that you aren't or don't want to be a coder (correct me if
I'm wrong), and a previous attempt on your part to become a developer
left NM with the question of what you intended to do crossed with what
you had the skills to do. Perusing your entry in NM, you have passed
the skills test. Congrats. But my question still stands...
