So, I posted over on the siggies board for a siggy request (did a FFA) and that was back on the 21st. So many others have requested siggies since and had theirs made, but not me!! I PM'd one of the hosts, and she said to link her to my request, cause I didn't know if I did it wrong (this was my first one) but then I never heard back from her. I don't wanna be a pest- but how long does it usually take to get a siggy made?? I'm sad that my post has been seemingly overlooked!

You did the right thing pm-ing the host. They will most likely make yours a priority since it has been a week. It just depends on how busy things are over there, and how many siggy makers are active as far as how long it takes. Hopefully you will get yours soon!

Try not to worry about it! They are REALLY SLOW over there and have been for some time now. I think some siggie makers took a break and plus its summer so there just aren't as many around. If you PM'd HeatherW, she takes awhile to get back to you. She ended up doing my siggie, but it still took a bit.

You can try to cancel your FFA request and request a specific maker. Look through the pick up and see who is making a lot and then request them!

Same here! I requested one (my first) on the 24th and SO many people got theirs made that posted after me. I didn't know why or what I did wrong. Good idea PMing the host, but I have no idea how to link anyone to the original post I made. I sort of just gave up.

Usually requesting a specific siggy maker is faster. You can look at their work, chose one that you like, and PM them specifically!
On my PR I have a friend who REALLY likes to make them and she gets them out fast! Her name is alethia. You can PM her if you want

i agree! they are super slow over there right now! i think its because its summer though. i know during the winter, that place is hopping if you dont hear anything back, cancel your ffa, and go directly to a specific siggy maker. i got one from jaidynsmum and it took about 3 days i think

A LOOOONNNG time ago, I made siggies. Typically requesting through a specific siggie maker is the fastest method, which is why the FFA's get overlooked. All the siggy makers are so busy with personal requests, there is hardly anybody left to do the FFAs. I went and looked at your request and IF there are other FFAs that seem to be being picked up before yours that were posted after you, I would say that probably the picture of your DD is what is causing the delay. She is totally adorable, but the quality of the picture makes it hard to work with. Not saying that is a good reason, but I know when I used to do FFAs I would pick threads with the better pictures. I am SURE they will get you a pretty siggy soon after you sent the hosts a PM. They are just super busy.

They are super SLOW and they definitely pick and choose which ones they want to do. It's BS in my opinion. Thankfully I can make my own, it just takes me a week or two because I'm still learning.

Hope you get your siggy ASAP.

When my SO gets off his lazy butt. He borrowed it to a friend so he just has to go pick it up.
