ByLaws 5.3 (Due Process) details that an ST should send the applicant an email to acknowledge receipt of their special approval within 48 hours of receiving it, and that a response of yes, no, or a request for more information should be given to the applicant and all previous STs within two weeks of receiving the application.
If an applicant does not receive a response within this time, the applicant should send a reminder email to the ST in question. If no response is received for a further week, the applicant should escalate immediately to the next ST in the approval chain.


If an approval is successful, the approving ST should send a notification email to the applicant and each ST below them with the approval number and any special conditions.
If an approval is denied, the denying ST should send a notification email to the applicant and each ST in the player’s chain with the reason(s) the approval has been denied.
