I'm in a multi-guild raiding group that organizes itself via a forum ... ... and yes, people definitely did have to apply in order to be considered.But what were we looking for?We asked players to decribe their main char, their "main twink" if they felt like it, and to briefly mention any unusual items they can make.Of course, the actual main char hardly mattered -- what we were looking for was players who had the ability to communicate in whole sentences. It does not really matter how well-equipped a char is -- if the player sounds like reasonably smart, they're in.We're refused many, many applications which were usually either two-liners ("I'm a great mage now get me thru MC") ("I want to join because I really need [Itemname] from [Raid instance]") ("I wanna join because NoD guildkicked me") or written by arrogant idiots.One kid in particular couldn't understand why we refused him ... he sounded vaguely nice on his application - until it turned out that 3/4 of the raid group had him on /Ignore because he spends most of his nights chatting in Trade channel. We told him were to stick his spam, and never come back ... I think he's still crying.
