While alot has been covered by the above (spelling, grammar, punctuation and capitalization etc),as a raid leader of a hardcore raiding guild here are some tips that will help you regardless:1. Answer all questions in full. If they ask you to explain something, explain it. You can tell when someone has spent a decent amount of time on their application. Anyone willing to put in the effort to make a good app, will put in the effort to be a good guild member.2. Expect questions and critique. A common tactic I use both for WoW and for hiring in my department at work is to drill someone on why they did/chose something, even if I know the answer, and even if they did the right thing. What is important is their response.3. Don't swear. Sure, many guilds might state up front that *you* must be able to tolerate foul language while in the guild, but it still looks bad on an app.4. Read all their details both about applying and about the guild first. We list our raid times and our expectations in attendance yet we still get people applying who can't meet those requirements.5. Party with their guild members and keep in contact with officers. If you see a member of the guild your trying to get into organising an instance run, get involved if you can. If thats not possible, then chat to their officers and let them know that your free to do something. I will often let everyone know in guild chat that such-and-such is applying for the guild and is looking to group up for something. Getting to know people gets you into guild.Hope that helps :)
