Got hans and frans down, but the rest was a wipe fest with pugs.

Why do you want to join Defying Gravity? What makes you think you will be a good fit for our guild?

I want to join a raiding guild that i will have run raiding in and one that is drama free. I think i will be a good fit because i am dedicated, not afraid to wipe, and wont leave early because of that. I also have a friend that recently joined with you guys (Remless)

We use a Loot Council system. Do you understand that we distribute loot with the guild's interests in mind?

Yes, been apart of many guilds with this system

We raid 6 hours a week and because of that we expect very high attendance from our players - is making every raid night an issue for you? Excluding extraordinary circumstances, of course.

Solid Mage player.

I must take this time to say that Black is not a color it is the absence of color... Please give us about 24 hrs to look over your app.
I also have a horde toon on Proudmoore it use to be in Ruined on Alliance side in Mist... Proudmoore is a great server to be on, but its sad that the horde side is dead.
Applicant
Remless i appreciate the kind words *whispers* your endorsement check is in the mail *clears throat*

Tanker your right black is an absence or color now that i think about it. Would i be able to change my color to dark white before my app is considered? i wouldnt wanna look silly after all lol.

I havent heard of Ruined, only been on proudmoore for about a month or so. I havent had any issues on the server at all, but it is a very barren place to be. I appreciate you guys looking over my app, i look forward to hearing back!
Tanker
Yeah, horde there is almost non existent.

I would however like to take this time to go ahead and accept this application for trial. Our trials usually last about 3 weeks and we generally expect 100% raid attendance during your trial (excluding extreme situations).

Please pst an officer in game for invite when you transfer over.
Applicant
i appreciate the invitation very much! i will more than likely transfer tomorrow, i will one of the officers know once im there! The trial sounds fine by me, and you can expect 100% attendance even after the trial

I disagree and say that White is the absence of color and black is the presence of 3 main colors.

But that's only because dating a graphic designer makes you hate Comic Sans.

By 3 Main colors do you mean 3 primary colors... and according to Color Theory:
"When there is no light, everything is black. Test this out by going into a photographic dark room. There are no photons of light. In other words, there are no photons of colors."
Which = Black not being a color.... and it being the absence of Color.

White however is a color... and according to Color Theory:
"The sum of all the colors of light add up to white. This is additive color theory."

Sorry I have my degree in Industrial Design and had to take Color theory in college. /endrant
