I believe it does have a 30 day wait. It protects the forums, so if someone goes around scamming CAG's, they can't just keep creating new profiles to continue to rip people off. This would stifle the environment in these forums, as only people with well documented feedback would trade with each other, and no one new could ever build up their credibility. That's just a single example, but surely you can understand why the rule exists?
I know it may be frustrating, especially since you already have feedback. By the time you get an answer here, the 30 days will be up . I'd suggest to PM a mod, and make sure that is the case. They may be able to work with you on that, who knows? I'd say it's worth a try, so at least you'll be certain. Welcome to CAG, by the way! I hope you have a very positive experience with the site, as most of us do. I wish you the best!
Thanks for the info and the welcome! I'm glad to be here. I guess I'll just be waiting it out to put up my trade list, ahaha.
