Old

Hello everypony, and it is that time again where MLP Friendship is Magic hopes to bolster their ranks with a few more Royal Guards to help with the load of new members we have amassed over the past few months.

We hope that many of our qualified members submit well written applications so that we may choose the best of the best to bring into the ranks of officer. From our last recruiting effort, we received a wide variety of application quality and I would like to share some tips with all of you applying.

Submission Time: Feb. 18th, 5:00pm - Feb. 22 2:59am EST (GMT -5)
Officers Announced: Feb. 25th via the Enjin website and Star Ponies Forum

Tips from the Manes on Applications:
  • Answer each section in full. Some of the application points have multiple items we would like you to address so please make sure you fully respond to each section.
  • Write professionally. Rarity level professional? No, but we would like to see your technical writing skills at work. We did receive an application last time that had some grammatical errors and was full of smiley faces. Pretend you are writing an application for a job, what would the employer think if they saw a résumé full of "xD" and "^^"? They would toss it out immediately, and so do we.
  • You can never be too experienced. Don't be afraid to list anything that you have done that could be applicable for the role. In our last batch of applications one of the members listed their work and managerial experience. Raiding prowess isn't the only thing that we take into consideration.
  • Ask for vouches of written statements and include them in your application. If you choose to obtain words of approval from current officers please have them write out a short statement, and include that in your application. Please don't just include names or assume someone would vouch for you.
  • Don't be discouraged from applying because of time with the guild. Everyone has a fair shot at a promotion so don't let your membership time with the guild prevent you from applying. Just because a member of six months is applying doesn't mean that we will find them more qualified than a member of two weeks.
  • Be reasonable. Do you only play for two hours a week at best? Do you only talk to one other member in the guild? Please really consider if you have the time and drive to be an officer.
  • Apply for the right reasons. Please take time to read the guild's mission statement to remind yourself why we were formed. We want our officers to have the same intentions of creating the best gaming atmosphere for all players. If you are applying because you would like a title or more power then you are applying for the wrong reasons.

The current officers would like to wish you all the best of luck and hope to soon promote two of our best to the next rank!

-The Manes

First, I would like to note that the Manes decided to recruit three applicants instead of two. This was for balancing reasons which will be explained in the near future.

It's my pleasure to announce our newest Royal Guards.
  • Wilowah
  • Rydel
  • Darth Dreselus


Congratulations to our newest officers! You are prime examples of our best members.

The Manes would also like to thank all those who applied. We had more members then ever before apply and we received many very well written applications. We hope that if you weren't selected this time doesn't discourage you from re-applying in the future.
