Applications

In my opinion the application length for new members is too short. I feel It should be atleast 1 week as people are getting into the clan who I have never even seen on the server before!

If the application goes through, it is because more people think this person should be accepted than think they should not- it's not because the application time is too short.

+1 no.

I think he means that too many people are coming in in a short time, So he dosnt get a chance to vote before they are accepted..

You have three days to find the thread- some of us go on the forum each day, anyway.

And it's almost always an acceptance anyway; as unless the applicant is the reincarnated Adolph Hitler, you can imagine everyone will only have good thoughts on their mind. Though I can assure you that if John Hitler does happen to stroll in here, those of us who can be bothered to be here for a portion of those three days will swiftly pick up on it.

As it is, no one would want to wait a week to join the group anyway, and the current system hasn't really presented any big problems of it's own. Don't fix what isn't broken.

I think maybe 4 days would better a better time span because it means people would actually have a chance to meet the new applicant in-game before they are a full member.

Three days, Lorenzo. Is four days much of a difference? If you want to meet them on the server, and they're serious about joining, they'll be there.

I know, I just thought you were going to have a real argument or debate for me. Rather than just ruthlessly insisting on having the last post in any thread despite having little to say.

For what? You've almost surpassed the forum admin in number of posts, and the percentage of those with any meaningful contribution to the thread is negligable. Even here we have "Orlynao?". You've ended shorter threads than this with nothing but "Awesome-sauce" or "Kool-beans". The persistance with which you clutter the board with meaningless posts is truly astounding- it brings a tear to my eye.

to be the top boards

I'll assume you mean top poster. Besides, this isn't 4chan. You're just making yourself a nuisance by spamming the board like this.

^Shit aside,
I want the application time to be longer because some people are joining the clan without me ever even seeing them play or speaking to them. I play on the server pretty much everyday so I think that surely 3 days is not enough If I'm not seeing them! I also think that this will help create a stronger community as all the clan members will hopefully actually know each other.

On a different note, I agree that the application length should be extended. So many people have joined and I didnt even realise they had applied.
It would help if the forum wasnt covered in spam which takes the apps off the "Latest posts" and replaces them with random crap noone cares about

As I went on to say, I meant that Lorenzo's posts are almost always just a few words or a meme, and rarely actually make a point about the thread (as opposed to Simmy, who rarely posts if not to make an announcement or point out rule violations). I'm not sure what you could mean by hypocrisy anyway; despite my high post count, I do try to make a point not to just make a post out of 'lol' or 'awesome'. Please point out if I have.

But we're all sick of talking about this.

*Ahem, ahe ahe ahem* Back on Topic, Longer app times will:

1. Make the applicants think "do I actually want to join?"
2. Give them a chance to socialise with other members before they join.
3. Allow members to know the person better before they vote them in or out.

As the Clan expands i think it is important too get too know the members properly, Get a chance too play with them and talk too them.I think that with the amount of applicants getting through compared too the amount getting denied the chances are that you are going too vote yes anyway..
So i propose

1) A System where you Cannot vote until you are sure
2) Encourage new members to get on Teamspeak and on the server
3) Join the Steam group so you can talk too other members without cluttering up your Freinds list
4) Advertise VIP too new members alot more then in the past.
5) Alter around some of the questions on the application form

On the note of Point 5, If you could post what sort of questions you would like too see that would help you make up your mind.

Soz for my Longish post

You should see the length of mine on the Minecraft Forums.

Anywho-

Questions:
Are you mature?
Do you think people on the server like/respect you? Why?
Do you like the server?

Something along those lines mebbeh.
