I sent a help request 3 days ago. Why haven’t I heard back?

Unfortunately we support a lot of users with a very limited number of staff, and must answer requests in priority order.

If a ticket has gone unanswered for a couple of days, feel free to reply to it and ask what’s going on. We don’t consider it rude, and don’t mind being reminded of your request after an unusually long period of time has elapsed.
