Applicants Beware

This post pokes at you!

Thats right folks its time for another BA Shared Topic! This week’s topic is brought to us by Cathmor of Eye for an Eye and he asks:

Whether you’re a guild officer or a grunt, a GM or a rank-and-file, if your guild accepts applications for membership you’ve probably seen a few of them. Oftentimes guilds will have their applications posted in a public forum for all to see; other guilds will keep the applications in an officer-only forum. However, even when the apps are kept private, funny ones are re-posted for the rest of the guild to get a chuckle. Sometimes it’s an application from a raid boss (I’m Ragnaros and I’d like to join <Raid Guild>!), sometimes it’s an inanimate object or food item, and other times it’s just a raider with a great sense of humor.
What’s the funniest one you’ve seen? If it’s contrived, what made it so funny? Give background if necessary.

 

Well, this one is a little late but we just had the perfect example of an app and response from one of our awesome guild leaders:

Here’s the App (other then the name and armory link I didn’t change anything):

Player Name: ******
Class:warrior
Spec:prot
Armory Link: Sorry no peaking!
Tradeskills:mm idk what u mean by tradeskills

Ok so ya know, a standard not well written app. The funny part actually comes from one of our officers who ripped this guy up!

Tradeskills:mm idk what u mean by tradeskills

Figure it out.

What is your current raid experience?:well i dont kara, gruuls, mags, za up to ZJ, SSC up to morgrain.. i beleive is hes name, TK up to the first boss.

You “dont” what?

Even though they are no longer required what attunements have you completed, if not complete what part of each quest chain are you on?:
Black Temple:none
Mount Hyjal:none
Serpentshrine Cavern:none
Tempest Keep: The Eye:none
Glad to see you care.
 

 

What can you do with your class that the average pugger cannot?: lol being great at what he does

Beginning a sentence with “lol” is a bad idea, on any application.

If we need you to respec to help us out are you willing to do so?: course i do so for pugs sometimes

The application itself has all of its sentences capitalized. In the guild-native language of English, “I” is capitalized, too.

Do you read up on boss strategies and are up to date with all bosses in SSC/TK/MH/BT?when i have to yes.

You always have to.

Did you read our rules and guidelines and agree to them? not read. but i will agree to them as long as i dont have to give up my soul =)

Do not even bother applying until you have taken the effort to do this.

What timezone do you live in?:florida. i tihnk east/pacific.. =??

Basic geography is a prerequisite for joining this guild. (Hint: Florida is no where near the Pacific Ocean.)

Do you attend school/college?: yea college i will start the 21st

Good, you will soon know what the word “prerequisite” means!

What days per week are you free after 7:30 server time?: i should be my last class is at 3pm

Writing, including proper capitalization and punctuation, will be needed in order to succeed in college. Or, are we talking Subway University?

How late can you stay on?:hmm ide say prolly till 1am

TEXT-MESSAGING IS NOT APPROPRIATE IN APPLICATIONS, IT IS NOT PROPER ENGLISH!
