Apr 3rd 2010 1:16PM The point you guys are missing is that a raid only has 25 slots. For most raiding guilds there is a long line of people who WANT to raid with them. The amount of effort shown on the application directly shows the amount of effort the player is willing to put into raiding with you. Guilds are looking for like-minded individuals. Since it's impossible to trial every raider (especially off server transfers), an app is the only way to tell if a player puts as much into the game as your guild needs from them.
If an applicant looks at a question and says 'I don't need to tell them that, so I won't' they sure as hell will do the same thing when you ask them to handle something in-raid that they think is not important. The second thing that the app does is weed out the people like you. The current state of hardmodes for most guilds could mean canceling a raid with one person deciding to take a night off. If an applicant can't even take the application seriously, how seriously do you expect them to take your raiding schedule?

Congratulations, sounds like you've gotten a lot out of the game. But maybe it's time you moved on instead of making up your own rules in this game. I'm just starting the game, but I have to deal with friggin multiboxers running around frying up the mobs that I need to kill, camping my only toon for hours, and shocking the crap out of my team in BGs. I'm not a nosy neighbor peering out my window - I'm standing on my front lawn while you run around naked on it. Some of us haven't had the chance to experience this game as Blizzard intended. If you won't come off your high horse at least look at the people down here that you're standing on. You know were here -- I know that because I can hear you laughing at our QQing.
