Several people have given great answers, but I'll try and clarify.  (It's been a very long day of traveling, though, so I may not be as coherent as normal.)

1. I joined yesterday night and still haven't gotten my email to validate my address. Is that normal?

This seems to have been resolved.  However, the automated script doesn't get along well with AOL, so that might be the cause of peoples' problems in getting their e-mail.  If an e-mail never shows up, I can verify the e-mail address by hand if you send me an e-mail from that account.

Quote
2. If the waiting list is 200 something people long, then do I have to wait all the way to next year to finally join? By then, I think I may lose interest. =p

As has been stated previously, and as is stated when you login, the date you will be accepted into the game is just an estimate.  It is based on an assumption that one stable per day will be deleted from the game due to inactivity.  Stables are deleted from the game after 5 weeks of inactivity if they've been active, and 2 weeks of inactivity if they are brand new stables.

Quote
3. Where do you check the waiting list?

The waiting list is not publicly posted.

Quote
4. Why do we have to keep the site down to 150 stables? Is it server reasons?

As previous posters have said, the aim of Final Furlong is to keep the game personal and fun.  The server could probably handle 1,500 members or even 15,000, but given that this is a "labor of love" for me, I want to keep it fun and a good community.

Quote
5. If I get approved, then will they send me an email telling me so?

Once you are in the game, you will get an e-mail, as it says when you login.

Quote
6. Do the players that are inactive for 6 months get automatically deleted? Or does some poor soul go through the list everyday and delete manually..?

Stables are deleted automatically.

Quote
7. If I did lose my validation email, can I have it be resent?

No, but see #1.

I am glad this has been bought up - I too have been waiting for a while to join (prob about 3 months now) and i check my status about once a week.  I got a little keen the other day as it said Estimated Date of Joining was about mid July - its now slipped back to 1st August. I dont know if I prefer just knowing I am in a queue or when i am likely to join.

But knowing the reasoning behind most of my unspoken queries has helped (a little).

Yeah, Ladycat. I sorta know what you mean, except I haven't waited as long.
I finally got up one number, but then I was set back again.  :-\  I don't know why.. that's alright. I'm willing to wait.  ;)

Wow, you're second? I know what you mean; I logged on one day and danced because I was at #229 and brought all the way down to #195. Today, I'm #194. Now, I'm really feeling happy and optimistic!   :D
I can't wait until I see a number like #2. I'll be so haaaappy.

Since VisionOfFreedom is much too long, I've changed my name to just Freedom. Just easier and better looking that way.  ;)
