Here are 10 reasons why you're not getting into TWC:

1) Incomplete application.

2) The recruitment page says that you should make a forum account before posting an application. This tells me you haven't read any of that stuff. So much for paying attention.

3) Did I mention incomplete application?

4) No parses, no armory links, nothing to judge your raiding worth.

5) Again, incomplete application.

6) What little you wrote down sounds like a 10 year old. This is an adult guild. You wouldn't survive here.

7) Incomplete frikkin application.

8) The answer to the question of why you wanna join and what you can bring to TWC is exactly what we're *not* looking for.

9) Seriously, I feel like I didn't stress it enough that this is an incomplete application. The worst I've ever seen in the 2 years I've been doing this job here. Just miserable. Have some self-respect, kid. We're not running a charity here. This thing is meant to be our first impression of you, and looking at this application, my first impression of you is a good-for-nothing, incompetent, careless, 10 year-old wanna-be who thinks that he can raid with the big boys just because he's not finishing dead last in DPS charts in a no-name, small-time guild.

10) You misspelled Shaman.

Edit: I feel like I didn't bash you enough for this application. This is an 12/13 Heroic T11 guild right now. Have some shred of awareness of the kind of organization you're seeking to be a part of. For all intents and purposes, raiding has to be treated somewhat like a job, and this right here is a job application. What you just did is like showing up at an engineering recruitment meeting with a resume you drew with crayon an hour before. Just...christ, how old are you?

You'll find donuts in the waiting room.  Feel free to finish the application at your liesure.

Edit: Nevermind, you've offended Zeb.  Back away slowly.

In all fairness, the thread title is automatically generated from Char Name, Level and Class Name. He only had to make the typo once for the error to appear twice.

This is the worst application you've ever seen?

It's not even in my top ten.

Also;

What are your past guilds and why did you leave them?
Progeny of deathwing i left because krestus said u were looking for a ele shaman

Generally a good idea to make sure the new bridge is built BEFORE you burn the old one. Hope it's not too late to catch the resignation papers.
