I think there should be an option to write your own message to rejected Apps.

Hi Josh,

We unfortunately cannot allow this due to the possibility of it being abused for spam; however we can allow more types of reject messages, if there are any you feel are missing from the current list.

You do have the applicants email as part of the app also, so if you needed to send them a more detailed rejection you could send them a regular email as one workaround =)

I hope you're having a good summer,

A few for RP guilds would be nice... perhaps add one concerning RP experience, one concerning incompatability with the guild itself... there are too many that are for PvE and not enough for the other aspects of the games.

I wouldn't mind seeing a rejection concerning experience keeping with one guild for a while. For example, I've got an applicant for my RP guild who has been in about 8 guilds in the past 5 months that her character has existed. That's a bit insane. Yet I can't use any of the messages currently there for such a thing...

hmm, from your suggestions I've came up with a few, can you let me know if these would be helpful, or if a reworded or different one you suggest would be better? =)

Lacks Loyalty - You have switched guilds too frequently in the past few months
Lacks Roleplay - You do not have enough roleplay experience to join this guild

We would definitely be open to adding more rejection messages, if the above two would be helpful we will add them, and if anyone has more to suggest definitely post them here and we'll review them and likely get them added as well =)

Those sound great! :) Only other ones I could think of would either be:

After Further Review and Interview - After your interview we have decided you are not compatible with our guild.

Or:

Lacks Guild Roleplay Compatibility - Your storyline does not fit well with our guild storyline.

Thoughts on those too? I love the other ones you came up with as well. :)

I would suggest a reject message:
saying the only guild members are permitted to join the site

thanks for the suggestion =)

this may be confusing in some cases (since typically applicants are not guild members), but I'll try and think if there's a way we can word this to work it in as an option =)

how about "This faction is only recruiting in-game atm. Please ask a faction member for invite."

Yes something along those lines sounds good; I'll try to get this added as part of our revamp or shortly thereafter =)

Maybe turn it into "Sorry, we are not recruiting at the moment. At this point, applying is only eligible for ingame guild members who are not registered yet."

Something like that.
