Vortex Raiding Member Application and Instructions
« on: April 23, 2018, 02:04:54 PM »
Potential Applicants,

Thanks for your interest in Vortex. You will find our application form below. Please take your time and fill it out completely as it represents your first impression to many (if not all) of us. Only Vortex members have forum access. You do not need to be a registered member of the forums to post your application. To make sure that you don't lose valuable work in case your forum session times out, we recommend that you compose your application in a text editor (Notepad, etc.) and then post the completed application here.

We have a five-step application process.

Step 1:
Check to see if we are recruiting your class. You can do that by visiting our Vortex Class Needs post. While we are always looking for exceptional applicants, that post will contain a regularly updated list of specific classes we are looking for.

Step 2:
Complete and submit your application. Once posted, the form will create a thread in an internal members-only forum where the entire guild can read and comment on it. That initial feedback will determine whether you'll move on to Step 3 of our Application Process.

Step 3:
Applicants with strong applications will be invited to talk with our guild members on our Discord server. This group will include at least one officer and several of our guild members with experience in your role and/or class, but it's quite common for a large portion of the guild to show up and listen in. It is important for us as a community to have a group interview because it provides us as a guild to meet and talk with you as well as giving you an opportunity of meeting our group to ask us questions and see how we work. We will also traditionally invite applicants at this stage to spend a raid night (or portion of it) with us on Mumble to get a feel for our raiding atmosphere so they can decide if it's an environment that they're comfortable with. Feedback from this stage will determine you'll move on to Step 4 of our Application Process.
Step 4:
Candidates with continued positive feedback at this stage will be asked to raid with Vortex for typically six nights (and occasionally more) during our regular raid schedule. These runs gives us a good feeling for how you interact with groups of people as well as your skill level.  The Vortex members that group with you will add their comments to your application for other guild members to see. At this stage of the application process you should be prepared for any encounter that Vortex has completed up to that point as well as any progression content that we may be working on. 

Step 5:
The entire guild will be asked to vote on whether you should be admitted. This is a difficult step for some, but we feel strongly that our members should be able to chose who they play with. If accepted, you become a full member of the guild immediately. If you have put in the commitment necessary to complete our application process, we need to show you the same commitment in welcoming you to Vortex.

How To Fill Out This Application:

To submit an application through our web form, follow this link: Vortex Raiding Member Application

Once submitted the form will automatically create a private thread for our guild to review. If you'd like a copy of your application after submitting it, please get in touch with a Vortex officer.

You may add additional information at the end of the application as you deem it necessary; however you must complete every question to the best of your ability to be considered. Every question is designed to help us gauge if you will be a fit for us.

Once we've received your application, you should be contacted by a Vortex officer within 3 days. While you are waiting, please take whatever steps are necessary to prevent e-mails from the domain from being filtered by your anti-spam software in case we need to contact you via e-mail.

If you have not heard from us in that time, please feel free to contact one of the Vortex officers directly (listed below).

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and we thank you for your interest in Vortex.
