I did ask my AM and he had no idea why I was stuck. No reply from
James as to why. If its forbidden for NMs to talk to James that realy
should be stated.
It took an intervention from Martin (frontdesk hat afaik) to get
things going again, Martin putting me under observation for 3 month so
he could make up his own mind and then recommend to the DAM.
Now I got told by James that they (James and Martin) were concerned
about my "inactivity" leading up to the intervention.
