I joined this group on Jan 2, 2011 after being referred to it by a member of my family. I think it is a great concept. I entered my information and anticipated an e-mail authenication within 24 hours. I resent the request on Jan 10 and again today, Jan 16. Is something not working

Maybe you haven't checked the right boxes in your "Preferences" (which you find from the drop-down menu at your user name near top right of most pages). A group of them refer to email, authentication, etc.
The top few lines of mine look a bit like this:
E-mail Your e-mail address was authenticated on 2008-06-08 at 00:35:16. E-mail me when a page I'm following is changed E-mail me when my user talk page is changed E-mail me for minor edits,
If that's not the problem, try the "Contact Wikia" link.
