This site is run by a single human who has to manually approve all database entries. That can take a few days. Contacting me will not make this process faster. If it has been more than three weeks or you encountered an error at signup, feel free to reach out.

The approval process is designed to weed out spam only. It is not a referendum on your disability status and whether you ‘belong’ in the database. If you are disabled and interested in journalism, you belong.
