I cant seem to get a friend request accepted
First, I agree with SamSpayed, you can always send a request, but you cannot make someone accept it. Notwithstanding, looking at your membership, only one thought came to mind.....Seriously, everyone is a recruit, other than the Owner and Directos...hmmm, if I was in your club, I would not accept your friend request either!!!
I suggest you making the Recruits members, posting a welcome and congratulations on their profiles (if people still read those these days) and then send a friend request again.
If that does not work, for a sleeve of Pink Volviks (LVL 51), I will be your friend.
