    Too little info for pro membership???

    OK so i debated with myself to post about this but here it goes. I applied to be a PRO member on September third 2011. First I should give some background info...I am a NOOB!!! I am attending night school for HVAC and this site has some educational value that i am interested in. First off I registered to become a member; then got my post count to 15 then I filled this forum out.

    So you guessed it they asked for my Student ID which i gave them. The membership committee wanted a picture of a student ID card which i do not have. I could go get one but I would have to take a hour off of work to go down there and get one. So i sent them these screen shots for proof that i am enrolled in some HVAC classes.

    Now my question to yall is what i produced to the membership committee enough to substitute the STUDENT ID CARD? If you think it is not enough information please enlighten me.

    These matters are handled by the Membership Committee.

    A thought. Could you get the administrative office at the school to mail you something to indicate that you are enrolled there?

    Ask the school to create an ID card for you, scan it and email it to you.

    Explain that you don't need the physical card, just a scanned copy of it. That should save you from the time off work and a trip down there to get it.

    BTW...The pics came through for me OK.

    O.K._ the only date I see is the date you applied for pro status, how long has it been since you sent the class registration (or what ever that was) in?

    Problem is that some schools do not issue such ID cards, the closet thing that resembles an ID card at my school is the library card with no photo.

    Does no-one even notice that you are already a pro member? You were made a pro member back in March!
