I think it would be a good idea to have a subforum under the general guild application forum that deals exclusively with members who were previously accepted into the guild. I know that ideally you guys want these people to fill out applications like the rest of us, but let's face it, that's becoming more and more of a token novelty rather than an action that has weight. Applicants who post in this forum could just provide a little information about why they left and request another invitation. Otherwise, let's face it, with members like Wicked and Red Dragon, neither of which wrote a quality application, you're just asking for people who haven't met them to flat out reject them.

I wouldn't have a problem with this, and you're definitely not wrong. The only thing I can offer is the [meh] is still new and we're really still in transition from [Ectos]. This may happen from time to time.

Wicked's app was a misunderstanding because not a lot of people understood that he was told he needed to apply and his app didn't really convince anyone that he really wanted to be here. That was part his fault, part whomever told him to apply. But we're all past it now.

Red is a different story all together. He was a full-fledge officer in [Ectos] and stepped down for school. Then went on to Aion. What you saw in his app is typical Red. He's quite funny and fun to be around (don't let that go to your obnoxiously big head, Red).

Point being, I agree that some sort of indication needs to be made for those that have been in the guild previously and are coming back for whatever reason. I hope that you, and other newer members to our guild, don't hold these apps against them.

Honestly, I don't think we should even keep their apps up. They should just go into archives. Razz

Oh no, I don't hold anything against these guys. I just think that for the people we make fill out applications, those applications should be done to the best of their abilities. If guys like Red were in good standing in ECTOs, I'm more than happy to let them get into the guild without going through the process.

LOL Dev.

And, still, I think they should be archived because it doesn't really show anything to new applicants even to keep them up.

I see Chris's even got deleted, but then again, he didn't really fill out an app, hehe. I think archiving them is just as fine, though.

not everything can be archived or saved. eventually the space is needed. unnessecary things get deleted. though I have not read all the posts i have missed so far on forums - i decided to go bottom to top today.. shrug... but do we really have that many people needing to reapply that we need a new forum/ sub forum for apps? if so then yea sure, but if we are just anticipating people leaving and coming back ... this is kinda an odd discussion to me...

well as far as ive been able to tell we still have a decent number of old [ECTOs] members that are re-joining [meh] now so maybe it might just be worthwhile to put something in the guidelines that tells you to make sure its obvious its a re-application or something that way we could leave it up the whole time

Added notation near IGN as to previous applicant or previous guild member or never applied before in application Qs instead of a whole new forum? Smile

I think it still needs a whole new forum considering it changes entirely who can vote /accept and /deny.

It doesn't change WHO can vote. It just changes HOW we vote... for the most part. Lol

okay so i see why this was brought up, however I still think in addition to IGN a notation in applications form instead of new forum...

ex:
IGN: Grace Paragon
Previous involvement with community? If so, how do we know you? If new to community just reply "new".
Was in ectos, and I am da twit. Very Happy

something like that...
