I had my site rejected when I first applied (www.potmaster.com) but then
Google seemed to do a U-turn and emailed me a couple of months later
saying that they had expanded their programme and that I could join. I got
my end-of-year cheque in February I think (they were late paying out) and
it cashed without problems. So you might just have to wait a while or, as
suggested, submit evolt.org instead.
