Spryte's Guide to Joining Equilibrium

Postby Spryte » 26 Jan 2009, 13:14

WELCOME!

So, you want to join Equilibrium. Well, I'm here to help. Your friendly, local, purple fairy with some advice on the best way to approach joining. This isn't any kind of official policy, just some personal advice on what makes it easier for you, and for us, to decide if you're a good fit for our guild.

CHECKLIST

Let's start by being direct and simple - are you a good fit? If you can say Yes to all of these, then we definitely want to talk to you. If some answers are No, don't worry, click the link after the question for further information - it might not rule you out.

1) Have you read our Guild Principles? Does this describe your ideal guild? (no?)
2) Are you as mature as the typical 20+ year old adult, and no less than 17 years old? (no?)
3) Do you share our values on treating others with respect, and engaging them fairly, even in situations of conflict? (no?)
4) Are you a subscriber to Dofus (pay to play)? (no?)
5) Are you of a similar level to our members? Our members are currently typically levels 80-200. (no?)
6) Do you keep your game password to yourself, and avoid sharing your account with others? (no?)
7) Are you applying to join the guild with your main character, and hope to make Equilibrium your "home" on Shika? (no?)
8) Do you already know someone in the guild who will vouch for you? (no?)
9) Are you prepared to be a little patient while we decide if you're a good fit for us, and us for you?
(no?)

HOW TO APPLY

1) Register an account on the forum. Please register using your Character's name. Not account name. Never use that anywhere, ever.

2) Leave a post on this forum. Tell us a bit about yourself, the characters you play, what time of day you normally play at, why you want to join Equilibrium, etc. If you said No to any of the questions on the checklist, let us know that (or if you prefer, save that till the next step). If a member of the guild knows you, and will vouch for you, mention that and ask them to reply to your application. The better written your application, the more seriously we're likely to take it. If your application doesn't make it clear you've read this, we'll just point you back here until you do. All our members read the Applications forum, so.. remember you're introducing yourself to this in-game family you want to join.

3) You'll need to have a chat with a Recruitment Officer or Council member. They'll want to know that you've read the forums, that you understand what Equilibrium is about, and that you know why this is the guild you want to join, rather than some other guild. They'll chat to you a bit, and if that goes well (and it should.. you've been following this guide, right?), you'll be invited to join as an Apprentice. Contact one of the Council members in-game, and arrange a time for you to chat with someone. You already found the list of Council members when you were reading the Guild Rules and Policies section, right?

4) Usually, you'll spend 10 days or so as an Apprentice, then all the full members of the guild will give input on whether to promote you to full member or not.. It's rare, but we do reserve the right to decide you don't fit in, during your Apprentice Period. During this time, you must create an Introduction in the Introduction section of the forum. (You will see this and other sections when you are admitted to the Guild).


Good Luck!
