Applications are always welcome, I still get them forwarded straight to my main inbox so I get to them fairly quickly; despite being a large guild the applications don't exactly "pile-up" on here. So I just thought I'd clarify why I continue to moderate the site:
Metalocalypse is an active guild, the players are diverse & as such passionate statements can arise that may conflict with others views, so to avoid that sometimes people walk on eggshells & shy away from the text box to concentrate on the game rather than get swept up in the fury of a debate. To each their own, as long as it doesn't get out of hand (i.e. uncivilized, disruptive to the desired guild-chat function) we wouldn't dare try to silence your voice!
That chat box can also be outright inadequate at times, when you are trying to give a lengthy slice of advice, or when sometimes a topic is too demanding to carry on in public without being washed away in other topics &/or overshadowing players asking for assistance. So the website is just here for any who need/want an outside of game way to communicate should the need arise, for example: if the game experiences another extended period of downtime.
I can't be arsed to censor you, if you make a fool of yourself it'll be on the page for all to see, you can always edit posts if you make a mark you regret, I will just delete any post that goes out of it's way to be inappropriate (porn, illegal discussions, bullying/real-life threats, being a prick).
The forums are free for members-only viewing/use, they just don't get used. But I really only made this site because no-one else had done it yet, I never thought it would last this long; I like Shivtr, I've used it since it was called MMOGuildsites; it serves it's purpose, however basic, without having to waste money on a paid service. I will gladly keep it active if it is ever needed, it's easy to run. Maybe I'll redesign the layout soon, I just grew fond of the way this one looks when I open it in the game browser
Oh my god, what is thiiiiiiiiis?!
