    Applying For Accounts and Buddy List Sticky

    Neither of these are particularly needed, but they would be great fixes.

    The first thing is that on the forum home page, when you scroll down to apply it shows the following:



    "You may only apply once." I've seen a few newcomers become a little bit confused by this. You are able to reapply as many times as needed, within reason, of course. If you fail, you may apply again. So really the idea of only being able to apply "once" can and is a bit confusing to those of whom are unfamiliar with how the site and application process works.



    The second thing is the Minar Alliance thread in the Buddy Section. A while ago, it was great to have, listing everyone that you could message to be invited into the guild, but it's become a little bit out of date. There are quite a few people, such as Narwhalic, Commorrow, and Rice that are missing from the list. It would be great if it was to be updated to include all of the most current people that you are able to message.

    Regarding the 2nd part, most people use/see the shoutbox and there are igns you can whisper to get added to the alliance.

    Some people do, some don't. Not to mention that the sticky in the shout box isn't updated all that often. Sometimes it's updated the second a new jr gets on, sometimes it never gets updated at all.

    The sticky on the shoutbox gets updated when there are juniors online. It serves the same purpose as the stickied thread in the BL forum.
    And I doubt people will get confused about the "whole apply once" thing. It says you can apply multiple times before you can start the App.

    Regarding the first part, I have seen several noobs in the shout box worry about only being able to apply once. Even if they realise that they can while they are applying, it can't hurt to fix a few words up to make the site a little bit better. Regarding the second part, I don't know how many times I have been talking to some of the staff members in-game, jrs, weather it's only one at a time, or multiple, and I've found that the shout box hasn't been updated. Even if we do start to update it every time a jr comes it, it can't hurt to add their names to the official list. I'm not trying to complain about the updating of the sticky, but I'm just saying... both are minor fixes that really would only take a minute or even less to fix both of them.

    Okay, update the sticky; but I don't see the long-term effectiveness. You end up with a huge list and what if a newbie ends up whispering all of those names when those juniors/elites could be offline? Just a big waste of time for them.

    IMO, it still helps. Especially when you know someone is online, but you are having trouble remembering their exact IGN. And by the way, the last time I quoted you, that was my 250th quote. Yay me. And this is my 650th post... Yay me.

    How can you have trouble remembering a name when their name is right there in the shoutbox? Copy and Paste?

    As I said earlier, there are times in which the shout box is NOT updated, and the name is not there, although you know that X person from the forum is in fact online. You use the stickied thread to find their IGN and you send them a message.

    If Andy feels it's necessary to change it to "You can only apply to for one account", he will. Chances are he wont't though, considering what Tim pointed out, nonetheless it's in bold red font.

    and we are working on updating that page, it hasn't been high on our priorities recently, but we will get to it.

    Thanks for the reminder.
