WoW Applicants - Start Here
« on: August 22, 2007, 08:17:11 am »
To combat nefarious forum spammers, forum registration is now by invite only. Please speak to a member in game to receive a forum registration code.

Stonecutter Recruitment Status

Please feel free to fill out an application and post it. Check this thread for what classes and rolls are open for recruitment.

Post a application and Read Code of Conduct
You'll find the application in this thread just below this notice.  If we cannot understand your application, chances are we will not accept you.  Answer all the questions, answer accurately and please spell all character names correctly.  You'll notice many of our own players will jump and post in your thread, so please wait for an official response from an officer.

Level Limit - New Recruits should be level 90
The majority of our guild is level 90 and play casually (20 hours or less per week).  This leaves us with very little time to help people level / quest.  This leaves anyone who is not 90 spending a lot of time in PUGs or solo.  Due to this condition we prefer characters that have reached level 90.

Age Requirement - New Recruits must be at least 18 years old.
Most of our members are in their 20's and 30's.  SC feels that anyone under the age of 18 will not mesh well with the guild in WoW.  They will also have other restrictions that could conflict. (Some of the language used, restrictions, etc...) We will not be accepting any new members under the age of 18 unless there is some extradonary applicant or special exception.

Special Cases
Stonecutters from other games can be 'grandfathered' into the guild.  (They are part of the guild already, just in a different game.)

Back Ground Checks
SC does them, if we find something questionable (after you have been invited and are still on trial) we will bring it up with you.  Really servere past incidents (ninja looting from guild or alliance member) may be cause for ending trial early or rejecting an app.  We are willing to hear both sides, so if you know something already pm it to the officers so we can consider it, we know every story has multiple sides.

Qualities we are looking for in a guild member:

MATURITY - This is our most important requirement.  We mess around quite a bit and have a good time.  There is a huge difference between humor and stupidity.  We accept many ages, but do not accept all levels of maturity.  If you are a strong, active player who is immature, you won't last long here.  Maturity includes, among other things,  being serious when needed (raids), knowing when to stop talking, and not being excessively inappropriate or hurtful.

Activity - We do not have mandatory raiding.  However, we do require our members to be active.  Disappearing for a week or two without notice is not acceptable.  All it requires is a simple post on the forums with a reason.

Fun - Any Stonecutter will tell you that guild chat is extremely entertaining.  We are a raiding guild, but not a "hardcore" guild.  We like to recruit friendly and funny people.  (It also helps if you can play your character :D)  In fact, this post might be the most boring one you read.

Forum Activity - One of the best ways to get things done in game is to plan things out.  The best tool / resource we have for that are these forums.  So check them regularly, often we will post signup sheets for raids and those who signup will get priority on those raids.  Also often people need to complete the same quests and they can use the forums to communicate and get things done together.

Thanks for reading and we look forward to having you join us!

2. Raid attendance / Guild Events. We expect you to be able to attend 2 guild events a week and if not post stating you cannot attend with an explanation.  Failure to do this will result in you failing the trial.  Guild events will be posted in the Raid / Strat forum. Raids are  7:30pm-11pm Monday and Tuesday 7:30pm-11pm. These could be subject to change but that is life.

3. If you agree on / sign up for a raid / event and fail to show without notice your chances of passing trial will SIGNIFICANTLY drop. We want reliable honest applicants only.
