I find myself in the same situation. I've added the "tag" to our MoTD several days ago and the server remains unclaimed. I've verified that queries return the full tag. Given no further directions one assumes that validation is an automated process; however Server Status still remains as "Processing..." Additional documentation is nonexistent - or at least not intuitively placed. Searches in various MCF and Curse forums for "claim server", "claiming server", etc. [apparently something has changed. The search terms now have an expanded scope, ty] only resulted in bring up this thread. I suspect, I'm not seeing the forest for the trees, though at this time "thar ain't no trees!"
