The name you use to sign up for Genius may not always be the name you use on Facebook, so approval can sometimes take a little bit longer. We also do our best to keep the private Genius facebook group a closed-knit, highly-maintained group so we prefer to take the time to approve every member so that nobody sneaks in. It's a safe, collaborative and explorative space, and we want to keep it that way. 

If you've paid and you haven't yet been approved as a member, open a support ticket immediately and state the name you used to register with as well as your Facebook name so that we can cross-examine everything and get you approved as soon as possible.
