The game says I'm not whitelisted. How do I join the game?
I'm using Minecraft 1.18.2
You'll have to wait for your application to go through. There are more applicants for the server than for the website so you probably were able to join the website, but not quite the server yet. I'm sure someone else will be around with a better answer than I just gave but I betcha that's what it is.
