Hey, Vlad! When people apply for access to the Marketplaza, wouldn't it be nice for them to receive an automated email confirming that their application has been received? "We'll be looking at it soon! Keep in mind that applications can take up to a week to process. If you don't hear back from us in about a week..." That sort of thing. Points in favor: 1. It's nice to have that little bit of feedback. If someone's application is rejected, they'll at least know that someone on the other end did indeed receive it -- rule out technical problems and the like. Even if they're just waiting for their application to be processed, it's nice to confirm that it's in the queue. 2. It could contain a lot of the same stuff written in the application sticky. This serves to reinforce what was said before, or if someone didn't bother to read the sticky or didn't even know it was there (an innocent mistake, if, say, they happened to be using the form to send out site feedback and noticed the "Marketplace Access" option), perhaps they'll make an effort to put together a better application the next time around. 3. It's good to have a "receipt," too. Again, if someone's application is rejected, an email is an easy way to keep track of when they last applied. "Has it been a week?" If you're feeling extra-nice, you could even include a copy of the original message/application so they'll have that to reference to (should they have not kept a copy for themselves).
