My guild is (fairly) small, very social, and somewhat casual. We reserve to right to kick any initiates within the first 4 weeks and usually don't promote to member until that time has passed - unless they're an excellent fit. (They don't always work out in the long run but since we don't recruit this works for us.) Promotion to member is handled after a discussion among the officers (and usually the veterans) either on the forums or in-game in officer chat.We always had a problem getting people to the forums and most of the people on the forums regularly are myself and my officers. While we understand that not everyone wants to do WoW stuff outside of WoW when they're in their gaming time at home and we know not everyone can hit the guild forums from work, making them 'apply' felt odd. Most would register and never return to the forums. What we did with the application process was to ask them to fill out the application as a way of introducing themselves on the forums. It's a less formal and less threatening way of phrasing it but it still accomplishes the same goal - letting them know about us and letting us know more about them.
