It seems as though we need to reiterate the same commentary on every application.
Common sense, real facts, effort, personality, and color will make your application stand out.


Seriously, consider the following~

  • When citing your past experiences, please give us proof.. Server names at least.
    If you have pictures, EVEN BETTER!

  • If we don't know you, you should REALLY consider writing more about yourself.

  • No, writing one sentence responses doesn't make you look more appealing, it makes you look like you're not willing to give effort.

  • No, we're not asking you to "write an essay", though we do expect a little more DETAIL. A little more YOU?
    We're all big kids here, you should know how to elaborate by now..

  • Yes, we like color, we mentioned it on the OUTLINE for a reason.
    ----But not too much where it's as though a rainbow puked on it. Make it look appealing in other words..

  • Yes, providing your email is necessary for obvious reasons. (If we need to contact you, outside of the forums/in-game.)

  • We read EVERYTHING, don't assume as though we didn't just because we didn't comment on it. There will be no QQing here, everyone has an equal chance in getting accepted. It just depends on your effort, qualifications, and personality. (:

  • Don't bump your application, it doesn't help you nor does it make us want reread your application again.
    (Unless you have edited it, then that's a different story.)

  • When answering our "Simple Questions" section on the application, it clearly states 1 or 2 word responses. Please don't ramble, it's either yes, no, not sure, and for the last question; a number.

  • First post applications, FAIL.


Can't think of anything else c:
....Will edit later.

stickied this lol.
So true, people seem to just take the outline, and just ignore what we've asked them to do with it.
Sort of annoying to repeat the same thing over and over again..that's why I have really stopped responding to most applications.

I should just copy and paste the exact same phrase to errrbody )=

Why number when you can have bullets? :O They look and sound cooler.

Whenever I apply for GM positions, I always end up writing a novel. Hey, you can't blame me. It's the writer in me. And what's wrose, I get denied because they say I'm too "strict". Forgive me for wanting SOME common sense. -le sigh-

Good luck to all applicants. ^-^
