I'm interested in what people think should be in an application to a raiding guild.
I'm in a 25 man guild that is 12/14hc raiding nine hours a week over three nights, I simplified our template recently in addition to links to character and logs I made three other boxes
1) I give them a brief opportunity to tell us a little about themselves, I stress in this question to keep things brief
2) why they are leaving their previous guild
3) one last bit incase they feel like they need to add some extra info
Despite me stressing to people to keep things brief they insist on writing essays, I even had an app recentley they listed all of their key bindings, why is this information considered pertinent.
Personally all I look at in an application is that their character is as geared and progressed as we want and I will look over their logs and I feel like this is nearly everything I need to make a decision. With regards to whether someone will fit in socially I don't really care, if their raid performance is of a high enough calibre they will have to go a long way not to fit in. Judging by other guilds application forms my view is in the minority and I would be interested to hear why.
