I have recently submitted the GS application yes. They are quite similar yes. Both are true. But i do not and will not vote for myself on alternate accounts, anyone who has voted knows me in game because i have partied with them and we had a grand time. I do not appreciate your assumptions. Now if you would like to meet me, please do come to the Fury side and hang out for a bit. But ill not be accused of trickery. I informed the people who know me well that I would give it a shot only because [GS]Kali & [GS]TheWifey have both said that I am friendly and respectable and knowledgeable enough to accept the task at hand when dealing with situations in game. All I ask is you keep Assumptions out of a local site, and come to me next time.
Merlin doing as his job as a GS, and is just giving a few words of friendly advise. If you have an issue with a GS, please provide appropriate proof in a ticket addressed to the GS Manager at: http://www.aeriagames.com/contact/support
Part of the application process is the public feedback of players which only a small fraction of what a GM uses to decide on applicants. The factors taken into consideration are: Player feedback, GS feedback, Forum support, In game chat logs, Player attitude and Player's history.
Some issues are best left handled and addressed in private, especially an applicant. At the end of the day, a GS has to support their fellow GSes and GMs as a united team. A Gs has to put aside their personal thoughts and beliefs when it comes to AGE's guidelines and policies. There are places that private feedback is given and asked for. A GS candidate will be expected to do the same if they intend to be a GS.
If one can not follow through with the above as a GS, it is maybe best to rethink the following:
If one can't put aside their thoughts and beliefs to follow AGE Guidelines and policies with their fellow GSes and to assist the GMs. Is GSing, then really right for you to do?
Just a side not this is not to single anyone, but advice to everyone who is thinking of applying. GSing is not an easy job and involves a very think skin.
