Hi! I have been waiting to be confirmed since about 6:30pm tonight. It's now 8:30pm and I want to submit my GEDCOM but they haven't confirmed me yet. How much longer should this take? Also how will I know when it has been confirmed? Thanks in advance!

I see you still have the Family Member badge on your profile, but I believe it will change to the Wiki Genealogist badge by morning.  A number of things are only updated once a day ( to save resources and keep WikiTree free) and some others have to be vetted by one of a group of individuals and so may take longer.  BTW GEDCOM  are one of these latter, so don't expect a quick appearance of yours.  A couple of weeks may be more typical.  The problem is that GEDCOM have a lot of things which have to be checked on before they are added to the tree and even then they usually have a lot of work to be done to bring them up to par.
