Is the answerers group still open to join? Answered

NachoMahma is the creator of the "answerers group". I've tried to join it a couple of times over the past month or so, and all I get is a message that the group is "moderated". I've tried sending NachoMahma a PM, and it hasn't been read after 5 days.... I know the rule is you must have more than one "best answer", but in my case I don't think that's a problem. Anyone know if this group is still active?
