BigBlueWhale
11:00
anyone else's requirements list disappear
@BigBlueWhale: as in entire section disappeared or the items listed under requirements?
Sufferpuppet
13:45
everything under my requirements list is also gone but I also can't remember if there was anything there to begin with
i don't think there was anything there to begin with, but i do think they disappear once your file has been processed and it's been determined they have everything they need to process it. I don't think it has anything to do with whether a decision has been made
my friend got an A today about a half hour aago
legallyturkey
13:05
