The guild application process has been the lifesaver of our guild. We've gone through some pretty horrendous people (personality-wise, mind you) and the guild has, effectively, remained intact despite all of that. We've even had people question us, saying, "Why do you have an application even if you're not a hardcore raiding guild?" I often tell them very simply that it's a matter of preserving the guild atmosphere and community: if we try to get to know you through the application and we deem you to be an ill fit, we will just say no to save us all time and trouble, then wish you luck and speed you on your way.The OP says they're rather against the application method, though. So the only alternative I see is using the wait-and-see approach. Depending on whose friend the new guildie is, you can always ask them to leave and/or boot them from the guild if they turn out to be a bad apple; the amount of drama that ensues varies, of course. Have all your ducks in a row and make sure that your reasoning is bulletproof.It's your guild; the members are YOUR people. Make them understand where you're coming from and that your actions aren't out of malice. Good luck!
